Easy to install and provision

The Wirepas mesh networking software running in each emergency lighting luminaire creates a network autonomously, without human intervention. So no special skills or knowledge are required to set up and configure a Wirepas network. A standard electrical contractor or technician can do it.

On installation, a node broadcasts its presence to every other node within range and makes links with them. Each luminaire only connects directly with the luminaires closest to it. But – here’s the clever bit – every node (luminaire) acts as a repeater, receiving messages and passing them on to a neighbor until they reach their destination.

A Wirepas mesh network can consist of thousands or millions of nodes, all connecting themselves autonomously to their neighbors and operating as a network without any intervention from an engineer or technician.

In most cases, just a single gateway is required to provide access for all luminaires to a corporate network or to the internet. So the extra installation overhead on top of the task of installing the luminaires themselves is normally very small.
