ColorStars Group (CSTU) Releases Smart LED Lighting System
July 30, 2014
ColorStars Group (CSTU) introduced a new family of smart LED lighting system based on control technology. According to a release from the Company, the new system ranges from controllers, dimmers, smart drivers, and various LED light bulbs and lighting fixtures with built-in smart power drivers that can change the color temperature of light and dim the light output. These include the 10-Watt A19 bulbs, the 15-Watt BR30 bulbs, 18-Watt BR40 bulbs, downlights, T5, T8 tubes and 2x2, 2x4 light panels. All of these smart lamps can change color temperature and provide smooth dimming by the following 4 different control methods: (1) use of the existing switch only; (2) use of the existing TRIAC dimmers installed for CFL and incandescent bulbs; (3) use of an iDimmer; and (4) use of an in-line ipHost controller. The ipHost controller is Wi-Fi ready and can be controlled via iPhones or the Android smart phones with local Wi-Fi network, or via the cloud. Aside from the control keypads on the ipHost, an IR remote controller and a wall-mount touch panel can be used as control interface to the ipHost controller. With the option of using the existing On/Off switch or the TRIAC dimmer the consumer can simply retrofit the traditional CFL, Halogen, or Incandescent bulbs with our smart LED lamp without any additional wiring.
