What is a Bluetooth Mesh Lighting System?

by | Jan 11, 2022 | 0 comments |

A Bluetooth Mesh lighting system takes over the chore of turning on light fixtures, HVAC systems (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning), along with adjusting automatic window shades. Using a Bluetooth communications chain, you can forward the message to all connected components. You can turn the lights on the third floor on from the building’s entryway.
Bluetooth Mesh allows for multiple device communication. Any devices in the Mesh network can communicate with each other. You don’t have to keep the devices in range of the original command message. The message is transmitted through the connected devices until the command reaches the intended receiver. It’s a convenient system to use to control the lighting in large spaces.

Bluetooth Mesh Terms to Know

Before you install Bluetooth Mesh Lighting, it helps if you are familiar with a few terms. It makes it easier to use and understand the convenient system.
Nodes: These are the devices connected to the Bluetooth Mesh Lighting System. It can include everything from lighting fixtures, switches, and sensors to HVAC units and telephones.
Messages: When you send a command to turn a light fixture on or turn off an HVAC unit, it is known as a message. The nodes in your Bluetooth Mesh communicate via messages.

A Bluetooth mesh lighting system is just one of the new technologies available when considering a lighting control system. If you are considering a Bluetooth mesh lighting system it is a good idea to start at the beginning.

Bluetooth Mesh Lighting vs Wi-Fi Systems


You may already be familiar with Wi-Fi lighting systems. The wireless system is similar to Bluetooth Mesh, but they use different methods of communication.
Wi-Fi lighting systems depend on a router. If the router is down, so is your ability to remote control the devices on the network.
Bluetooth Mesh doesn’t use a router to send messages. The various connected devices receive commands from the original node. The messages are passed by the devices on the lighting system. If your Wi-Fi goes down, you can still control any device on the Bluetooth Mesh Lighting Systems.

Advantages of Bluetooth Mesh vs Wi-Fi

The primary advantage of Bluetooth Mesh over other lighting systems is its two-way communication feature. Once you have the sensors installed, you can use the infrastructure to monitor other building systems.
You can turn the lights on and off and adjust the temperature as occupancy demands. It’s a convenient way to reduce energy usage without installing additional wires.
Bluetooth Mesh systems even allow you to take advantage of LED features. You can adjust the light intensity and color hue and even remotely dim the lights. Along with saving on energy costs, you are also making the building more comfortable for the occupants.
