McWong and PLC Multipoint Team for New Multi-platform Wireless Mesh Photosensor

LDS McWong Sensor 400

June 23, 2022

McWong International and PLC Multipoint join in announcing the release of a new, multi-platform Bluetooth mesh photosensor. The new photosensor is the first commercially available, full-function closed loop photosensor capable of integrating into different Bluetooth mesh control platforms.

The device expands the range of control strategies available with Bluetooth mesh control systems to include robust daylighting control, a staple of building energy efficiency standards and high performance systems such as LEED. Energy savings can be accelerated with daylighting control as well, with annual energy savings ranging from 15-50% according to industry studies published over the past ten years.

The device features a range of 0-1,000 lux with a transmission range of 100 feet. Users can adjust numerous parameters, such as fade and ramp times and sensitivity. It’s ideal for virtually any daylit interior space, including offices, conference rooms, retail operations, classrooms, hospital and healthcare spaces.

“We are delighted to team with PLC Multipoint to introduce this photosensor,” says Stephen Zhou, Executive Vice President, McWong. “They bring well-established design and technical expertise to ensure the sensor is state-of-the-art. We look forward to integrating this device into our range of Bluetooth mesh control platforms.”

Joseph Briscoe, Division Manager, PLC Multipoint adds, “The opportunity to work with McWong in developing an industry-first Bluetooth mesh photosensor was exceptional. Their commitment to delivering high quality, interoperable wireless control networks is admirable and we’re pleased to participate in this offering.”
