Lumishore’s new range of Smart Lighting products can be controlled from the boat’s MFD or the user’s personal smart device. Lights that can be controlled include Lumishore’s underwater lights, marine-grade CRBGW downlights, mood lighting and IP68 strip lights and accent lighting. In addition, a range of Smart Drivers will enable integration with third-party approved products such as name boards and entertainment systems. Smart Lighting LEDs are built with cold and warm white, as well as red, green and blue LEDs in each light allowing the system to create an infinite number of hues, customized to suit a particular mood or atmosphere. This enhances boat aesthetics for a variety of leisure and safety conditions.
At the heart of the innovative system is the compact Lumishore ‘Black Box’. Plug and play compatible with an MFD or Lumishore display via Ethernet cable, it does not use the bandwidth of the NMEA backbone and can be easily upgraded by an SD card. Lumishore’s MFD partners include Garmin, Raymarine, Simrad and B&G, with others to follow.
The Lumishore interface panel features a simple to use palette wheel for color selection, horizontal slide bar for quick adjustments to lighting intensity, control of lighting across multiple zones with optional presets, and the ability to choose from pre-programmed effect modes like strobe, sweep or cycle. In addition, Lumishore’s unique ‘Sound-to-Light’ mode makes for the ultimate party accessory, pulsing lights to the beat of any song currently playing on the MFDs built-in media player. The white balance can be tuned for different functions such as reading, dining or simple waking up. The system has the capability to switch ambient mood lighting in specific zones or the entire vessel, through an intuitive drag and drop menu and also to create lighting ‘scenes’ based on the user’s preference.
“Lumishore is not only creating the finest LED lighting solutions on the market, we are also creating the atmosphere,” says Eifrion Evans, CEO of Lumishore. “As boats become more and more integrated, owners are looking for the same level of flexibility and value from their on-the-water lighting and entertainment systems as they get from the systems they have in their homes. Our Smart Lighting delivers, providing customers with the most features, an easy to use interface, and a highly competitive price.”
Suitable for all marine 12- or 24-volt systems, the Lumishore Smart Lights are EMC compliant to the highest standards and IP67 rated for use in the harshest of marine environments. To learn more about Lumishore’s LED lighting and camera products visit lumishore.com.
