Member News: mwConnect Adds Bluetooth® NLC Certification to its Award-Winning TruBlu Control Platform

SACRAMENTO, Calif., March 18, 2024— mwConnect (formerly McWong International), a leading innovator in wireless mesh technology, has achieved Bluetooth® NLC certification for its TruBlu wireless mesh control solution.

The Bluetooth Networked Lighting Control (NLC) standard, introduced in late 2023, is the first full-stack standard for wireless lighting control. Specifically designed to meet the scale, reliability, and security demands required in commercial settings, Bluetooth NLC enables multi-vendor interoperable wireless lighting control systems and unlocks the potential for mass adoption of wireless lighting control. By adding standard specifications to the individual device layer on top of the Bluetooth mesh (communication layer) and Bluetooth Low Energy (LE) (radio layer), Bluetooth NLC standardizes performance and functionality operations for six device profiles: occupancy sensor, ambient light sensor, energy monitor, scene selector, dimming control, and lightness controller. mwConnect’s new certification means the company offers the most comprehensive listing for Bluetooth NLC, with products in all six profiles. Bluetooth maintains a searchable database for qualifying products.

“We’re delighted to reach this new milestone for our flagship control solution,” says Stephen Zhou, Executive Vice President, mwConnect. “With this new NLC standard, a project team can select from a range of product choices with the certainty that each device will operate seamlessly with every other, regardless of manufacturer. This is the next natural evolution for us in achieving true interoperability and providing the marketplace with the highest degree of flexibility.”

mwConnect is exhibiting at this week’s LEDucation in New York City at booth AH 2815.
