Over the past few years, the lighting industry has evolved dramatically. Lighting is no longer just about what the luminaires look like in the ceiling, it’s now about what those  luminaires can do.

With the innovation of LED lighting luminaires, lighting solutions have been able to move past traditional line voltage infrastructure and instead use low voltage lighting technology to drive smarter, more efficient and fully controllable lighting solutions.

Powering lighting fixtures with nothing more than a CAT 6 network cable or speaker wire, low voltage lighting technology is now able to deliver revolutionary lighting systems that provide a better lighting experience for residential, commercial and hospitality buildings. 

Why lighting has moved from a hardware perspective to software-focused

The innovation of low voltage lighting means the digital perspective of lighting is what matters. No longer is it just about just the physical hardware of a lighting luminaire and how it fits into a space, it’s about what the software behind what luminaires can do.

Now don’t get us wrong, the physical aspect of luminaires are of course still important - but there’s now more to successful lighting solutions than just the luminaire itself. The software behind a luminaire provides real added value to the end-customer, delivering superior lighting experiences for both residential and commercial properties. 

Low voltage lighting software is behind tunability, complete lighting control, flicker-free dimming, human-centric lighting applications and many other features that transform the lighting experience.

How Colorbeam’s low voltage lighting is driving that change

Colorbeam has developed a complete lighting system that offers superior lighting experiences, and easier installation, than traditional line voltage lighting solutions.

Through the use of low voltage infrastructure and our patented GATEway processor, we have been able to develop a lighting solution that completely transforms the lighting experience for both residential and commercial properties. 

While we have a wide range of world-class indoor lighting and outdoor lighting luminaires, it’s the software behind this hardware that truly makes our lighting solutions stand out. That’s because our patented GATEway processor allows for human-centric lighting applications, unlimited scene setting, flicker-free and dlawless dimming and complete tunability of light.

What can low voltage lighting do?

Through specifically designed software, low voltage lighting gives designers, builders, business owners and high-end homeowners more control and tunability over their lighting systems. 

Here are just a few of the top benefits that residential and commercial properties can realize from the use of Colorbeam’s low voltage lighting solutions.

Flicker-free dimming: Homeowners and business owners can use low voltage lighting technology to dim their luminaires perfectly to zero flicker-free, allowing them to create an environment they dream of accomplishing at the exact time they want to achieve it.

Tunability: Our lighting solutions are highly flexible, allowing luminaires to be lowered to any kalvin and any time. This has applications in mood setting but also human-centric lighting, in which our GATEway processor can mimic the sun’s natural light patterns to enhance the overall health and wellbeing of the end-user.

Complete controllability: Colorbeam’s low voltage lighting solution is compatible with third-party control manufacturers, allowing end-users and designers to transform spaces and environments through lighting at the simple click of a button from any device that’s connected to the local network.
