Jasco Products, Avi-on Labs and CSR Announce World’s First Bluetooth Smart Lighting Control Platform Powered by Avi-on™


Jasco Products Company, GE licensee and leader in home automation, lighting and security products sets a new standard in wireless lighting automation with a complete ecosystem of GE branded Bluetooth lighting controls. This easy to use system provides direct and simple scheduling and control of lighting from your smartphone or tablet while utilizing mesh network technology behind the scenes for maximum range and reliability.

“Jasco has developed a complete ecosystem of Bluetooth Smart lighting controls powered by Avi-on and CSRmesh, the only of its kind on the market,” said Cameron Trice, CEO of Jasco Products. “With Avi-on providing leading edge software development and support, Jasco is delivering a game-changing wireless solution to all of our major retail partners, a solution that doesn’t require a hub or even a wireless router – you simply control and schedule your lights directly from your smartphone or tablet. With the Avi-on, CSR and Jasco partnership, we are able to bring products to market with unprecedented speed, low cost, and superior ease of use, while maintaining our usual standard of high quality and long term support.”

The platform includes plug and play firmware, iOS and Android mobile applications, a secure cloud service, and a pre-certified module based on the CSR 1012 chipset. The platform enables real-time dimming, one-touch setup, grouping, schedules, timers and multi-user controls all from an easy to use mobile app.

“The ability to replace wires with software will transform the lighting and construction industries worldwide,” said Eric Miller, CEO of Avi-on. “Avi-on has delivered a simple, scalable and proven controls platform at an affordable price, and we are excited to move forward in partnership with Jasco Products.”

Jasco’s GE branded lighting controls use CSR’s Bluetooth Mesh technology to allow an almost unlimited number of Bluetooth Smart enabled devices to be simply networked together and controlled from a smartphone or tablet. Jasco’s full line of GE branded products will ship this summer and will include “smart” switches, dimmers, an outdoor timer and a smart plug which will give consumers complete control of virtually any standard home lighting device or appliance.

“CSRmesh is transforming the smart lighting and home automation markets by offering the perfect blend of security, performance and ease of use that is needed to drive broad consumer adoption,” says Anthony Murray, Senior Vice President, Business Group at CSR. “CSR is thrilled to support the GE branded product line from Jasco Products and Avi-on.”

Jasco will present the full line of GE branded connected home products at the National Hardware Show in Las Vegas from May 5-7. Attendees can see the Bluetooth lighting control ecosystem powered by Avi-on and CSRmesh at Jasco’s booth #4515 (Central Hall, LVCC).
