MeshTek Labs, a Dallas-based IoT company, announced a partnership with California Lightworks, a Canoga Park, California-based company, on a smart lighting mesh network running more than 2,000 devices.
The deployment sits inside a 52,000-square-foot greenhouse handling horticultural products. The network includes AI and edge-computing tech, Bluetooth enabled two-way communication, and MeshTek’s “RealSchedule,” which places the lighting schedule within the light fixture.
“Meshtek Labs’ proprietary and patented networking and management platform, proven simplicity and control are at the grower’s fingertips,” said Swapnil Bora, CEO of MeshTek Labs, in a statement. “Our industrial grade BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) mesh IoT platform provides the ability to control the environment by managing the light spectrum for maximum growth, by filling in light where there were shadows and by allowing the operators to easily and quickly control and change schedules as needed. Built in AI and edge-computing and connectivity revolutionizes networking and control of devices.”
