Avi-on products use CSRMesh™ technology in combination with Bluetooth® Smart to build a lighting controls system which six distinct advantages.
- Great range up to 100 feet between devices. Three devices easily cover a 2500 square foot home or office. Plus, individual devices act like repeaters so the network can be almost any size. Your range will depend on two things: your phone/tablet and your method of installation.
- Many-to-many controls. Many people can control many devices through a single account.
- Drag and drop grouping saves electrician fees. With grouping, people can drag-and-drop individual lights or entire circuits together with the touch of a finger and operate them from a single button on the app, or from the Avi-on Movable Smart Switch.
- Real-time dimming. The speed of Bluetooth Smart combined with CSRmesh enables Avi-on to deliver real-time dimming that is equivalent to wires.
- Schedules and programs live on the devices; Internet Optional. Avi-on is a distributed architecture where the schedules and programs live on the devices. That means that once you have programmed a switch with sunrise/sunset, groups or other functionality, they work 24/7--without access to the Internet or your smartphone. You can see a diagram of distributed architecture below.
