Crownstone’s indoor positioning hardware uses your mere presence and proximity to control lights and devices in the home or office environment. Crownstone also provides indoor positioning to businesses on its hardware-as-a-platform.
Switch on lights and devices via the app or at set times.
Set your (LED) lighting to a desired dimming position.
View the energy consumption per device in real-time.
Crownstones react to someone presence or proximity
Automatically dim the lights when it gets dark outside. This even works with your regular light switch.
Your existing light switches will continue to work!
Bluetooth Low Energy positioning can be fairly accurate. It all depends on the number of Crownstones you use! See in this video clip below how we move a smartphone in a miniature house from room to room and you see how the picture moves accordingly.
The Crownstone is a device with many functions. If only picking one function, it already compares favorably to the competition:
