Crestron Now Shipping Wireless, Battery-powered Photosensor

New GLS-LDL-EX-BATT provides integrators with the ultimate flexibility for daylight harvesting applications that reduce energy consumption

Rockleigh, NJ, August 14, 2015 - Crestron announced today it is now shipping a new battery-powered photosensor with infiNET EX wireless technology (GLS-LDL-EX-BATT). This dual-loop photosensor provides superior natural light sensing and indoor light control for daylight harvesting applications. Two internal photocells—one for open-loop daylight sensing and one for closed-loop ambient light sensing—effectively cut costs in residential, commercial, or retro-fit applications. The GLS-LDL-EX-BATT monitors natural daylight from windows, automatically adjusting shades and lighting to optimize natural light reducing energy usage while maintaining the comfort and convenience of the space and its occupants.


Battery-power and wireless connectivity deliver ultimate flexibility

The battery-powered GLS-LDL-EX-BATT can be mounted in a variety of places and communicates with a Crestron control system via an ultra-reliable infiNET EX wireless network. The sensor can be mounted to drywall with an anchor and screw, to a drop ceiling or lighting fixture with a magnetic strip, or in a temporary location with adhesive tape. For ceiling mounts, the entire photosensor snaps into a mounting plate that can rotate up to 40 degrees after being secured in place, allowing its position to be fine-tuned after installation.

10-year battery life

The GLS-LDL-EX-BATT provides up to 10-years of service via two Lithium-ion AAA batteries. It is designed as a "sleepy" device that will not communicate with other infiNET EX devices unless a certain time or light threshold has been achieved. This ensures that the sensor does not draw on power unnecessarily and that the battery provides maximum lifespan.

Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth

The new Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth replaces conventional keys with digital keys accessed through the Yale Digital Keys app for Android and iOS mobile devices, and through an app for the new Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch. The Yale app allows homeowners to unlock doors, send keys to others, control when others have access, get a message when someone enters, and revoke a digital key at any time. Unlocking the deadbolt couldn't be simpler, whether using the Samsung Gear S2 or a smartphone. With the new Samsung Gear S2, touch the watch app to activate the digital key, then touch the lock screen to unlock the deadbolt. With a smartphone, Yale's "Twist and Go" technology allows the user to hold the phone vertically when approaching the door, then twist it 90 degrees to unlock the deadbolt. Homeowners can also unlock the deadbolt using its capacitive touchscreen and a four- to eight-digit code.
