TEDx Göteborg

Have you ever been to a big concert, tempted to post a picture online or perhaps call a friend, only to end up experiencing the lack of connectivity on your cell phone? Communication between wireless electronics is dependent on frequencies – a finite natural resource – and thus something we cannot take for granted. Our co-founder Niclas Norlén is a restless and energetic person who describes himself as a frequency nerd dedicated to making things work. In an era where an increasingly large amount of home electronics and physical devices are becoming wireless, a.k.a. ”The Internet of things” within the tech world, Niclas is eager to improve our society by using frequencies in a more efficient manner. In addition, there are both economical and environmental incentives in this: creating a world where resources can be utilized more effectively by enabling better communication between devices – and thereby reducing energy consumption.

Upon completing his engineering degree, Niclas began working at Ericsson and in 2002 he started his first company. Frequencies and communication are what he knows best and have been a recurring theme in his work. In 2008, he started LumenRadio and developed a method for enabling different electronic devices to coexist smoothly, using frequencies in a more effective and dynamic way. Ultimately, this can facilitate the transformation into so-called ”smart devices” where different wireless units can communicate with each other. His company has received global attention and collaborated with both Hollywood productions and the music and arts festival Coachella.

At TEDxGöteborg, Niclas wants us to get to know his best friends – frequencies – and how we can use them in the best way possible. Because the electromagnetic spectrum of frequencies we use for wireless communication is limited and can in fact run out, our ability to simultaneously connect units is also limited. In his talk, Niclas will give attention to the possibilities frequencies offer for the future, especially when utilizing his buddies in a better way. A larger number of units could then communicate and be more easily connected at the same time, whether it be wireless lighting, lampposts, refrigerators, ventilation systems – or perhaps a couple of thousand cell phones at a big concert.

Winners used LumenRadio products

Last week the Nordic IoT Hackaton took place in Malmö and we are happy to announce that the winners of this years Intelligent Buildings track used parts of our Better World kit in their solution.

The team called Invisual created a solution that, based on the data from people presence sensors, can highlight windows that are most suitable for a rescue team to enter the building. In case of people trapped inside the building an internal light system could be used for routing of rescuers. The system can show the firefighters whether there are people left in their building, where they can be found, and how to access the building.

Se the video that a video summarizes the Nordic IoT Hackaton here:

LumenRadios products in a BREEAM Outstanding building

The first Swedish building to achieve BREEAM Outstanding is Torsplan 2. In this building Swegon launches their unique IoT (Internet of Things) enabled climate control system for HVAC with LumenRadio’s reliable wireless connectivity. BREEAM is a globally leading certification system that is considered the most demanding system for the environmental assessment of properties. Read More

LumenRadio is today making CRMX SuperNova available for public download on the product site www.crmxnova.com. SuperNova is an RDM controller and management tool that is free to use with LumenRadio’s CRMX Nova RDM products. SuperNova allows the user to visualise the entire lighting network, receive instant feedback from and communicate with RDM enabled devices, and easily set up and change anything from DMX addresses to transmitter frequencies. Click here for more information on all the functionality in CRMX SuperNova. The public release of CRMX SuperNova is done after thorough testing both internally and externally. To make sure both CRMX Nova RDM units and CRMX SuperNova were stable enough for use by professionals, the products were tested by an external lab to ensure full RDM compatibility and function. After a clean test report, the products are now openly available to order and download. The independent test report will be made available in the near future.

LumenRadio participated in PLDC (Professional Lighting Designer Convention) on the 29-31 of October. During the convention LumenRadio had ongoing live demonstrations of CRMX wireless light controls for lighting designers and manufacturers.Many visitors were amazed by the previously unseen possibilities offered by CRMX in robust wireless light controls with instant feedback from connected fixtures. CRMX SuperNova especially raised some eyebrows by visualising the lighting network in realtime with interactivity. More than a few lighting designers wanted to specify CRMX for current projects, which we were happy to help them with.LumenRadio would like to thank all those who visited our demonstration at PLDC. Next chance to see CRMX technology in action will be at LDI in Orlando on the 19-22 of November. We’re at stand 1053 and you are more than welcome to visit us for a demonstration.
