Xicato is a leading company for the equipment of intelligent lighting systems in professional applications. Xicato is particularly useful in areas where the quality of light is important. Exemplary areas of application include the hotel industry, commerce, restaurants and public institutions.
In the cultural sector, good light is particularly important. Not only the protection of museum pieces by the right light but also the right staging are decisive for the success of a museum.
That is why the Stratas company mainly uses Xicato in their luminaire systems. Stratas is a Berlicher lighting manufacturer specialized in the field of museums and cultural institutions. Some of the most famous museums, with some of the most valuable cultural findings, are among Stratas' customers.
"We process high-quality and efficient lighting components from our partner XICATO, known for the highest color renderings (CRI 98) and appreciated for their reliability ."
In addition to the lighting itself, ease of control for museum staff is also important. Control via software is possible through Xicato. However, this is not usable with a large number of different users, who are often less technical without access to the software. Simple switches are therefore usually the most suitable and easiest way of control.
For this purpose, Xicato and Stratas collaborate with the technology company Senic from Berlin.
The switches of the Berlin company are also based on Bluetooth like the Xicato system and are therefore directly connectable and functional after simple configuration.
The special feature of the switches is the "energy harvesting technology". Although the switches are Bluetooth switches, they do not require a power supply or batteries. Just by pressing your finger on the switch, enough energy is generated to send the Bluetooth signal.
Thanks to the Xicato Bluetooth Mesh system, up to 100 switches can be placed freely within the building as long as one of the Xicato lights is within 20 meters.
This saves time and money in planning as well as in laying cables. In addition, you gain an unlimited amount of flexibility because you can place the switches in any location and on any surface, and you can change this afterwards.
Stratas appreciates Senic's switches for several reasons:
• work reliably with Xicato system
• are very easy to integrate
• have a classic, timeless design
• very good connection between switch and lamps
• need to be set up only once and then everything works
• can only be recommended in this way
"The switches work very reliably, are flexible to install, have a high quality and are very easy to use. We can therefore only recommend the switches." - Mr. Schneider-Moll
Senic's switches work as standard with all Xicato products and require no additional programming. The setup is easily done via the existing Xicato setup software.
Senic's switches can be obtained by contacting Senic directly and can be used throughout Europe. In case of special needs due to packing or commissioning of the switches, Senic is happy to help.
