Increase Reliability, Decrease Complexity for Commercial Lighting Applications

Solutions for Commercial Lighting 

Connected lighting makes it possible to change more than just the asthetics of where we work and play. It can increase revenue, decrease overhead, and improve emplyee and customer engagement. Silicon Labs' SoCs and certified wireless stacks let you take full advantage of Bluetooth, Thread, and zigbee protocols. 

Whitepaper

Enabling Simple, Interoperable Wireless Lighting Control

This whitepaper describes how to get the most from your lighting application with a robust but simple network solution.

Video

A Thread Primer

We examine the the IPv6-based mesh networking protocol designed specifically as a secure and scaleable networking solution for connecting things.

Demo

Thread Mesh Networking Demo

We demonstrated the world's first RGB Thread wall during CES, using 20 router-eligible, full-color lights with real-time display of data.
