Greenvity Communications and Mitsumi Electric have expanded their collaborative relationship to include development and manufacturing of a complete Internet of Things (IoT) turnkey solution with cloud and mobile apps for low voltage LED lights in outdoor applications. LED lighting OEMs and ODMs can transform conventional low-voltage outdoor lights into energy-efficient smart lights with controllability for turning on/off, dimming and color temperature mixing to enhance the aesthetic of the environment in all weather conditions.
This innovative smart LED solution is feature-rich with capability to control lights from anywhere in the world using mobile apps (Android and iOS) along with zone grouping and scheduling. The intelligence and communication of the IoT turnkey solution is powered by Greenvity’s GV7013 system-on-chip (SoC) with powerline communications (PLC) and an embedded 8051 microcontroller for lighting control. The GV-LED-Mini-DP kit is now available from Greenvity and customers can use Greenvity’s cloud and mobile apps without license fee.
The IoT turnkey solution for low voltage LED lights consists of Greenvity’s IoT Hub board (GV-Controller-S), Smart LED Controller module for low voltage LED (GV-LED-Mini), IoT cloud and mobile apps (Android and Apple’s iOS). The GV-LED-Mini is a small form-factor module that can be integrated into various types of low voltage LED lights from decorative lights, parking lot lights, and landscape & deck lights. The solution can support from 12 volts up to 30 volts for low voltage LED lighting. The IoT Hub is equipped with ARM9 microprocessor and WiFi with application software that enables cloud and mobile app connection.
“We are pleased to collaborate with Greenvity to develop and manufacture this innovative IoT turnkey solution for low voltage LED lighting products for outdoor lighting,” said Fujio Furukawa, Mitsumi’s senior vice president and chief executive of Electronic Device Business HQ. “Combined with Greenvity’s chip, software, cloud and mobile apps, Mitsumi offers world-class manufacturing capability to enable high volume production with unmatched quality.”
“The IoT turnkey solution from Greenvity and Mitsumi for low voltage LED lights is currently available and in production stage,” said Hung Nguyen, CEO of Greenvity. “We provide a complete solution – modules, software, mobile apps and IoT cloud – with a new level of controllability that enables customers to significantly reduce time-to-market and development costs for energy-efficient, smart lighting applications.”
