Overview

Properly illuminating spaces makes them productive; it makes people feel good, buy more, stay longer, and even see things that might have gone unnoticed. And the ability to control the light in a space makes it sustainable, more reliable, and manageable. Xicato engineers light that makes spaces shine. Our various types of light have set the standard for color consistency, quality, and reliability. We bring the same passion for perfection that we’ve long applied to engineering light, to developing and deploying Bluetooth controls systems that are not only easier to install and configure but also provide operational savings and true reliability. Planning, installation, commissioning and verification services round out our offering. We make the implementation and use of controls simpler and we take responsibility for making sure your installation gets done right. We’re there from start to finish.


Light

For over a decade, Xicato has engineered and developed the industry’s most reliable LED modules that lighting designers recognize as the highest quality light available. Xicato’s patented spectral options, Artist, Beauty, Designer, Standard, and Vibrant, are unmatched for their color rendering, color maintenance, dimming performance and reliability. With multiple form factors, a broad range of LES, CCT and the industry’s leading color rendering, Xicato delivers the light for interior and exterior environments.

About Our Light Types

  • Artist - Virtually indistinguishable from halogen light.
  • Beauty – The most flattering light for a range of skin-tones, it balances the accurate color discrimination of daylight with the comfortable warmth of incandescent. An excellent choice in the beauty and hospitality industry.
  • Designer - Outstanding color rendering with high efficacy allows luminaires to meet the most stringent codes and standards for both energy efficiency and light quality.
  • Standard – The original high efficiency, excellent color rendering light source from Xicato. Used in virtually all illumination environments.
  • Vibrant – Higher color gamut enables people to see colors, hues, and tones, particularly for whites, reds, and blues, that simply aren’t visible under halogen light. It’s an outstanding choice for retail merchandising
 

About Our Light Sources

  • XIM – Is the only fully integrated, intelligent light module. It integrates the light source with the driver, Bluetooth beacons, and a wireless control system in a single unit.
  • XTM –The low profile, cost-effective source is Zhaga compatible and available in a range of LES sizes and CCTs across all Xicato light types.
  • XLT - Xicato Linear Tape is a flexible, adhesive-backed tape solution designed for cove, display case, under-cabinet, and other low-density linear applications.
  • XCA –This is the standard LED light source for XTM and XIM platforms. It provides the highest degree of flexibility for luminaire designers while still delivering Xicato’s color quality, rendering, and reliability in a variety of light types.



Controls

Xicato’s Bluetooth (BLE) lighting controls are designed to provide a superior range of control and monitoring and to reduce the implementation and maintenance costs at any site. Tens of thousands of nodes can share a single, highly secure network, and there can be tens of thousands of networks.

Interoperable and Scalable - Buildings are IoT epicenters with a variety of protocols in use from Bluetooth to Zigbee and they are the foundation for everything from building management systems to open communications networks. Xicato has designed for interoperability and scalability. As a result, our lighting controls work with a broad range of lighting, network, and management systems throughout a building and across entire sites.

Faster, Simpler, Cost-Effective - Xicato’s Bluetooth lighting controls can be installed and commissioned in hours or days, rather than weeks or months. Without expensive wires, hubs, or dedicated control gear, commissioning can take place without disrupting people. Fast, responsive performance and powerful features such as groups, scenes, schedules, and sensor control are easily within reach, even for smaller shops and spaces.

Reliable by Design - Without wires, connectors, hubs, and central controllers, Xicato eliminates the possibility that one of them will fail and take down the entire system. Xicato’s distributed Bluetooth lighting controls ensure that there is no single point of failure. Fully Automated Lighting delivers flexibility and savings Lights can be individually programmed to respond to manual commands or time of day, but the power of Xicato’s lighting controls are fully revealed when switches and schedules are combined with occupancy (motion) and ambient light (lux) sensors. Automation provides the ability to minimize energy consumption, meet government regulations, operating budgets, and to create a comfortable, convenient environment for people.
