Intermatic unveils ARISTA Advanced Lighting Control System

Aug. 6, 2021
With a modular design and wireless components offering flexibility and ease of installation, Intermatic says its ARISTA Advanced Lighting Control System brings simplicity and smart technology to commercial lighting installations.

Intermatic Incorporated on Aug. 5 announced the launch of its ARISTA Advanced Lighting Control System, a customizable smart lighting platform that supports commercial and municipal buildings up to 10,000 ft sq.

The company contends the system "empowers installers of all technology backgrounds to integrate impressive, code-compliant functionality in a wide range of lighting control applications."

“ARISTA offers the best of both worlds – a dynamic smart lighting solution for building owners and a simple, easy-to-follow setup process for contractors,” explains Eric Eronen, product marketing manager at Intermatic.

Eronen continues, “A suite of modular components lets users customize ARISTA to meet their project needs while intentional design decisions, like battery-powered sensors and secure Bluetooth 5.0 mesh networking technology, remove barriers during installation.”

Intermatic notes the ARISTA system combines a range of lighting control devices, including occupancy and vacancy sensors, daylight harvesting sensors and in-wall control switches, with an intuitive mobile platform to maximize energy efficiency and increase occupant comfort.

The feature set includes area-specific lighting control and scheduling, and dimming and sensing capabilities. The system’s built-in real-time clock (RTC) also allows users to set schedules without the need of a gateway.

Using the ARISTA app and Bluetooth technology, installers can configure components, customize lighting schedules, and adjust settings based on natural light levels via smartphone or tablet.

“The biggest headache electrical contractors face is getting smart controls to talk to each other during setup,” adds Eronen. “ARISTA’s simplified workflow and Bluetooth mesh networking technology takes the guesswork out of installation, all without needing to connect to a Wi-Fi network.”

Per quotes in a product press announcement, Intermatic notes the ARISTA system "can be tailored to fit commercial projects of all types" and "delivers a wealth of helpful features," including:

  • Simple, Adaptable Components - ARISTA makes it easy for installers to combine components (e.g., occupancy sensors, timer controls, daylight harvesters) into a connected system to accommodate unique project needs.
  • Easy Smartphone Control - Use the ARISTA app to breeze through installation and commissioning, and manage settings once setup is complete. Add new users and set permissions based on access needs.
  • Limited Wiring, Battery Power - Battery-operated sensors and wireless communication streamline setup. Installers do not need to run 0-10 V wire from control or luminaire to the switch.
  • System Longevity - Reconfigure the ARISTA system at any time by adding or removing components. This offers value and flexibility as tenants turn over in commercial spaces.
