Wirepas and OR Technologies partner to deliver the connectivity at the core of their IoT Lighting Control platform

March 19, 2018 - Wirepas


OR Technologies, based in Melbourne, Australia has partnered with Wirepas as a key technical partner in the delivery of the connectivity underlying the IoT solution for its Organic Response range of lighting controls. The implementation of this presence-aware lighting innovation provides significant energy savings while maintaining exceptional levels of occupant comfort. OR Technologies has built its controls platform using a massively scalable asynchronous communication framework to enable rapid deployment of plug & play and low-latency lighting control products.

“We are proud of our partnership with OR Technologies in this extremely exciting application area. What is exceptional in this partnership, is that it took a very short time for OR Technologies to integrate Wirepas Mesh as a part of their product suite and platform. This intelligent range of lighting controls is a promising development with a great future”, Wirepas CEO, Teppo Hemiä says.

Wirepas Mesh is a wireless, low-power IoT network protocol that can be used to connect, locate and identify lights, sensors, beacons, assets, machines and meters in cities, buildings, industry, logistics and energy – with unprecedented scale, density, flexibility and reliability. It can be used on any radio hardware and on any frequency band without the use of repeaters.
