CEDIA - Ilumi Solutions and Optoma Demonstrate World’s First IoT Projector and Lighting Integration

ilumi MeshTek technology enables Bluetooth® lighting integration with home theater projector – with just an app

ilumi solutions, one of the fastest growing Internet of Things (IoT) networking companies, and Optoma Technology, a leading innovative display solution provider, today at CEDIA 2016 is demonstrating the world's first projector and lighting integration, allowing control of a home's lighting environment by syncing to a home theater projector's commands with just an iOS app. The technology enables a way to simplify and improve consumer functionality and usability of devices by showcasing true IoT integration in home theater.

Using an Optoma 1080p short throw laser projector which will be available in Q1 2017, the projector incorporates ilumi's Bluetooth® patented MeshTek technology, which syncs with plug-and-play ilumi smart lightbulbs. Linked to projector control commands, the lighting will adapt to the projector status, including dimming when turned on, brightening when turned off, dynamically adjusting to the image brightness and colors, and flashing red/green when muted/unmuted. Consumers simply download an iOS app for control of their projector and turn on lighting functionality, which eliminates the need for hard wired lighting control.
"This home theater demonstration is just the beginning of the IoT networking possibilities that our MeshTek technology can enable," said Corey Egan, co-founder and CEO of ilumi solutions. "ilumi MeshTek can be easily integrated into almost any device - from TVs to home audio systems - to seamlessly create a home network of integrated devices without any additional hardware or wiring."
Most traditional AV lighting solutions today require expensive controllers and programming, but with the integration of ilumi MeshTek technology, consumers can easily control room lighting without extra hardware or programming. Beyond lighting, the high-powered ilumi MeshTek technology enables up to 50 different devices to be simultaneously controlled by an app from within a Bluetooth range of up to 400 feet, allowing integration of multiple related products in the home - from projectors, TVs and cameras to sound systems and home security systems.
There are more than 50 thousand unique ilumi MeshTek networks operating around the world today, making ilumi the leader in Bluetooth mesh networking technology. MeshTek is currently used in multiple lighting devices and is being evaluated for applications such as TVs, fan control, sensors, and other IoT applications. With its simultaneous broadcast and connection-based mesh compatibility, product manufacturers can easily integrate ilumi MeshTek-enabled devices into any smart home.
CEDIA attendees can see the technology in action at ilumi booth #6405.
