One of the UK’s biggest shopping centres has become one of the most intelligent shopping and leisure destinations in the world following the installation of a new state-of-the-art (lighting) control system.
Located in Stone, Kent, Bluewater is amongst the UK’s largest shopping centres with over 330 shops within 155,700m2 of space and over 13,000 parking spaces. After careful research, Mymesh was the protocol of choice to make the entire mall smart and adaptive.
In addition to the Bluewater parking, Mymesh was installed in the Bluewater Guildhall in to remotely control 145 RGBW lights, provided by ACDC lighting – part of the Zumtobel group. Before all lighting controllers where delivered, Chess successfully tested the DALI Type 8 fixtures with Mymesh controllers and remote control functionality.
The 145 fixtures were installed by G.A. Harper Ltd. and on the 22nd of November 2019, after all the nodes were commissioned, Chess remotely set all colours at the Bluewater Guildhall, right from our HQ in the Netherlands. A unique event concerning the amount of RGBW lights that were simultaneously controlled.
For the jolly December month, the colour was set to pink but any colour can be picked to create the right ambience.
