Introducing Greenshine’s New Smart Bluetooth Control - Greenshine Connect
Posted by Stephen Shickadan in Industry News. The Basics.
After months of research and development, Greenshine is announcing its Smart Bluetooth Control - Greenshine Connect. It modernizes the traditional “sunup to sundown” lighting profile, giving the user freedom and flexibility to change light settings at will. With the adoption of Mesh Networking and Bluetooth technologies, extensive solar light systems can now be interlinked in a truly wireless system, like a mini-internet of solar-powered lights controllable through a simple app on your smartphone or tablet. Bluetooth is recognized as the most convenient wireless connection method for most electronic devices. Its recent application to solar lighting systems will enable a new level of customization, putting you in control of your security, efficiency, illumination level , and more. Here’s a quick peek at what this exciting technology can do:
About Bluetooth Mesh Networking System
Partnering Bluetooth with mesh networking, these technologies enable many-to-many device communications and are optimized for creating large-scale device networks. Plus, it’s truly wireless! No wiring is required for installation, and you can connect multiple devices through the available iOS and Android app interfaces.
Main Features and Benefits of Smart Bluetooth Light Control
Set varying levels of brightness throughout the day
Property owners can now take complete control of their lights’ brightness throughout the day and night. This is a major breakthrough in terms of customized lighting, system power management and efficiency, and security. In Time-control mode, you can set varying brightness levels at different pre-set times using a 24-hour clock, commonly known as military time. So whether you’re lighting a parking lot, park walking path, or even a remote industrial facility, you can enhance security and efficiency by increasing brightness at peak evening traffic hours and dim the lights during low-use or no-access periods. You can use your timed settings for every day of the week or create custom settings for each day.
On/off functions based on the starting voltage value
You can now take advantage of automatic variable lighting schedules based on changing sunlight collection and low battery levels. Traditionally, solar systems would not function if adequate sunlight was not collected. But our new system simply shortens the runtime hours instead to manage our battery power level so we always maintain 5 days of battery back up. Your lights will turn on and off at different times based on the Starting Voltage value, which corresponds to the detected voltage of the solar panel in relation to detected ambient brightness. 8V corresponds to dusk or dawn, and 9.5V corresponds to late evening or dawn. You can create settings for up to 5 periods throughout the day.
Activate your device's motion detector
The Human Feeling slider activates your device's motion detector if equipped. It offers the user greater customization beyond the traditional “on and off as movement is detected.” You can choose a low-brightness standby setting when no one is around, and brightness will automatically increase once motion is detected. Plus, you can even choose the duration time of the higher brightness. If your device does not have a motion sensor or if the motion detector is switched off, each of the five timed periods will only use a single value and maintain that brightness for the entire period. This is a critical advantage if your property has serious security concerns or even if you just like to be aware of your surroundings.
Accommodate special brightness needs such as severe weather.
Three brightness settings provide specialized lighting for seasonal sunlight schedules and heavily clouded conditions. It’s also easy to adjust your lighting settings from standard time to daylight savings hours.
High Mode: Uses more power to accommodate rainy or overcast winter days
Medium Mode: Uses somewhat more power to accommodate cloudy or winter days
Low Mode: Uses less power for greater longevity during summer
Access and manage light data and statistics 24/7
You can now view vital battery data to stay informed on your solar system’s overall health, helping you tailor your custom settings accordingly. Access your device's solar panel voltage and current, its battery's voltage and capacity, its lights voltage and current, and the ambient temperature. You can easily toggle between the current values and the average values over the last 24 hours. By being aware of your battery voltage levels and adjusting brightness levels to match, you can extend the lifetime of your solar system’s consumable parts and save money in the long term. A Greenshine representative can work with you to optimize these settings so you get the most out of each solar light.
