PoEWit Technologies, manufacturer and designer of smart PoE lighting and custom AV network solutions, has announced the arrival of its Crestron SIMPL driver. The free driver enables PoEWit PoE lighting to be managed from a Crestron panel and is included in new or existing Crestron schedules.
PoEWit’s cloud-based outdoor PoE Security Lighting can be powered-on dimmed, providing a home perimeter ambiance, and increase to full brightness when motion detectors are triggered, helping to deter intruders and enabling security cameras to record in high-resolution color. Their Power Over Ethernet Pass-Through feature, allows PoE to power downstream security cameras, PoE motion detectors, or other outdoor PoE lighting.
“All of PoEWit’s smart lights can be individually controlled and programmed to automatically react to events, from security threats to power outages,” says Dusan Jankov, co-CEO of PoEWit. “With the Crestron driver, PoEWit’s PoE lights can be added to key locations such as stairwells and hallways, providing a lit pathway with just a single Cat6 cable.”
In the event of a power outage, security cameras and lighting will continue operating uninterrupted when a Crestron installation is equipped with a PoEWit Emergency Lighting Controller (UPS Built-in) and a PoEWit Switch. Secondary cameras can be programmed to power off and non-essential lights can be programmed to dim, extending battery life until utility power is restored.
“PoEWit Network Switches use enterprise-grade Layer 3 chipsets, so they’re the fastest in the industry and can be configured with the PoEWit App. They’re also compatible with Crestron NVX,” adds Jankov.
