Helvar creates intuitive and practical mobile applications for Android and iOS

ActiveAhead MobileApp

The ActiveAhead mobile application is available for optional fine-tuning of luminaire parameters. However, normal operation is not reliant on configuration by the mobile application or any other commissioning software. The application is available for approved mobile devices (iPhone 4s / iPad 3rd gen / Android 4.4 onwards) equipped with Bluetooth low energy. With the mobile application you can adjust the parameters of a single luminaire, group or network of luminaires. The features include among others configuration of light levels, timeout adjustments, grouping controls and configuration of daylight harvesting mode.

Downloads & Links

The Active+ Mobile application provides an option to adjust the automatic settings. To use this app you must have smart phone for the application running iOS (version 8.0 onwards) equipped with an LED flash, a luminaire fitted with an Active+ LED driver and the Active+ Sense. (Application may be used also in Android phones, see user guide for more information).
