Let’s go!

Westfield Stratford
Chess Uk started the installation of Mymesh at Westfield Stratford, one of the largest shopping malls in Europe. Most areas are controlled via microwave sensors, grouped together. Monitoring emergency is part of the setup. Via Lumitel® light level settings are controlled, emergency testing is monitored, as is reporting on status and exceptions. This is a huge project containing over five thousand micro BLCs! Truly a magnificent project!

Camden Hill Lawn Tennis Club
Chess Uk finished a project in Camden Hill. They worked together with Hoare Lea to design a Mymesh solution for the tennis hall that is capable of expanding to control and monitor all the other facilities as well. The old controllers in the light fittings were replaced with a small wireless module, and the bulky central unit in the central control cabinet was replaced with a small interface and some key switches.

During the commissioning the light levels on the courts were calibrated to meet Class I (750lux average) for matches and class II (500lux average) for training. For each Court, the lights are triggered by movement detectors, while a central clock will dim and then switch the lights off after closing.

The main benefit of this installation is that it runs independently and hardly needs any outside intervention.

New functionality: Unwanted Presence Prevention
This week’s app update brings a new feature called Unwanted Presence Prevention. It is meant to prevent persons from hanging around and causing a nuisance building locations such as staircases or hallways -.

In case an unwanted presence is detected, the lamp(s) will start blinking at a high hence unpleasant frequency. This serves both as a warning for residents and as an irritating signal to unwanted persons to leave. As soon as the absence is detected by the sensor, the alarm modus stops.

The alarm modus can be enabled in the room settings and the maximum presence time for visitors can be adjusted by a slider. The alarm modus is available for the micro BLC microwave with 2.14.6 firmware.
