Prolon Controls selects LumenRadio's MiraMesh for their new wireless building automation offering

Prolon Controls, a Quebec-based leading player on the North American market for Building Automation solutions for medium-sized Commercial Buildings, recently launched their new solution TREE-COM. The new product allows customers to add wireless communication as an extension to Prolon’s already well-established portfolio of controllers, thermostats, sensors and control panels – creating solutions that are significantly easier and more efficient to install and commission. It also eliminates one of the hurdles of retrofitting more energy-efficient and flexible solutions into existing buildings – the dreaded (and expensive) exterior wiring!

The product offers seamless backward compatibility to all existing Prolon controllers and can hence be offered as a bolt-on option on a project-by-project basis. Integrators and installers have been giving the product great reviews, especially in applications involving hard-to-reach devices and retro-fit installations. A lot of time can be saved through avoiding difficult wiring that can be replaced by a wireless link – and the un-esthetics of wiring also becomes a non-issue.

Regarding their choice of MiraMesh for the development Brian Galardo, R&D Director at Prolon Controls, comments:

“We needed a solution providing reliability, scalability and superior indoor range. Our use case involves controls, not just sensor data collection, which means reliability and latency become important – something other technologies struggle to provide in challenging radio environments such as offices and retail spaces. LumenRadio also supported us well throughout the full product development cycle – both during firmware development and hardware certification.”

Peter Lindkvist, Business Area Director Building & Industrial Control Systems at LumenRadio, also adds: “TREE-COM is an excellent example of the kind of solutions our technology can enable. Our ambition is to be equally reliable as the cable, while also offering a much more simple and efficient installation and commissioning procedure. We promise our customers Wireless Without Worries, and within the HVAC & Building Automation space we provide just that in a very unique, yet convincing way.”
