Casambi; the Bluetooth story,The Casambi system was developed in Finland by a dynamic team of technicians. Because this team already knew everything about (low Energy) Bluetooth, the basis for a 'new efficient and energy-saving Bluetooth home automation system' was quickly realized.
The free Casambi app works on all Android and IOS Smart devices such as Samsung, Iphone, Ipad etc. You do not need an expensive server and also a WIFI network is not required. This is because Casambi works via Bluetooth. As soon as you install a Casambi component (for example a Casambi dimmer, a Casambi lamp, a Casambi driver, a Casambi WallxPress or whatever) your free network automatically becomes a comfortable fact! A Casambi network therefore already starts with 1 component, after which you have endless possibilities and choices. The Casambi app supports the most common languages regardless of the language set on your smart device.
Vadsbo, Danlers, Eulum and many other brands use the smart Casambi system in their products. This means that you can traditionally dim and switch your lighting as you are used to, but you can also recall light scenes with the app or other 'normal' switches. Your switch material simply retains the color and finish you want. After installation you can also operate the entire system without a telephone or I-pad. In that case you use the 'normal switches and dimmers' in the wall, whereby all Casambi facilities are retained. We can show you everything working in our Casambi Knowledge Center and advise you which components you choose to include in your electrical installation. There are even 'ordinary rotary dimmers' with Casambi control available.
Later adjustments and service,
A very powerful advantage of Casambi is that your customer can easily do extensions himself, after all, Casambi immediately recognizes an extension of Casambi components and adds them to the Casambi network. In the event of a malfunction or changes that your customer cannot resolve yourself, simply log in remotely in the Casambi cloud (password required).
New construction and renovation,
Provided it is handily designed, a Casambi network can save everyone a lot of money because you have to do a lot less work, such as pipe routing and hacking boxes. This is because the entire network is wirelessly controlled without any risk of outages or defects.
Casambi versus KNX,
With other (often very expensive) networks and Domotica systems it is true that if the server fails 'the entire system fails'. This can already happen with a simple power failure in 1 group. At Casambi, however, no dominant component can be found. As soon as something fails or becomes defective, the system will ignore these components until they automatically log in again! This gives the Casambi system unparalleled self-resolution in the event of imminent disruptions. Even your smart device does not play any role in stable operation. So you don't have to buy expensive servers, computers or licenses at Casambi. And what you do not have to buy can therefore not be broken!
You can operate lamps remotely directly if your customer allows this and open the gateway for a moment, an extremely simple operation. After doing this you can reach the network from distance. After completion, the 'Gateway' is extended again. you can also choose to permanently open the gateway. The Casambi app works without an IP configuration or LAN modem, so there is no risk of someone breaking into a computer if your Casambi gateway is open for a long time.
Every Casambi component in the network automatically behaves as a 'repeater'. This means that all components pass on information to each other. This has made the range unlimited and even entire buildings can be equipped with this smart system. The Casambi network is also known as a 'Grid Network', or 'Mesh Network'. With the new firmware 'Evolution', up to 250 components can communicate with each other in 1 network.
Because a Casambi network is a 'Grid Network', a software update will only be uploaded once from an I-pad or Android to the nearest component. Afterwards, all components pass the software on to each other. You will not notice this and your lighting will continue to work. In case the power supply fails in the meantime, the update will continue after recovery.
Casambi and the Casambi cloud,
A network (when shared) is stored in the 'Casambi Cloud' and is safe there until you delete the network. We can advise you which Casambi network you choose best and show the differences between the available networks during our Casambi Course.network restore is possible too.
Casambi and Philips Hue,
The Casambi app also recognizes all PHILIPS HUE systems and you can therefore operate them directly on the app after you connect the Philips Bridge.
Casambi and presence simulation,
Within the Casambi protocol you can link your electronic security to the network by means of a technical trick. This means that if you turn on your alarm, a number of light scenes are automatically operated during pre-set times so that your house appears to be inhabited during holidays.
