App-Free Pairing for Single Room Controls

Jul 26, 2021, 00:10 AM by Acuity Brands

Last August, SensorSwitch™, an Acuity Brands®, Inc. (NYSE: AYI) company, introduced the Just One Touch (JOT) wireless solution, which enables single touch pairing of JOT-enabled controls, luminaires and other lighting controls capabilities without the need for 0-10V dimming wires, mobile apps or additional software.  JOT-enabled products are integrated with a Bluetooth® radio to wirelessly control switching, dimming, daylight harvesting and detection. 


Designed with contractors in mind, the JOT-enabled wireless solution shortens the installation and pairing process: lighting fixtures and controls are quickly installed without using dimming wires, and pairing each device or fixture is as simple as inserting the pairing tool into a pinhole and then pressing and holding any button for six seconds. Once paired, each fixture will be fully functional and individually dim down to 10 percent brightness. 


“This simplified process makes it so much each easier for contractors to provide capabilities typically reserved for larger spaces. JOT-enabled products are ideal for small commercial spaces such as indoor new construction, renovations and retrofit projects such as private offices, conference rooms and classrooms,” said Tommy Harris, Vice President at Acuity Brands Lighting. 


JOT wireless app-free pairing technology features: 

  • Wireless dimming and switching without the need for 0-10V wires 

  • Product pairing without having to use mobile apps or laptops 

  • Convertible neutral-to-ground for wall switches 

  • Occupancy and daylight sensing to aid in code compliance 


The JOT-enabled product portfolio includes a variety of wall switches and sensors with dimming, occupancy and daylight harvesting capabilities that are compatible with a wide selection of JOT-embedded lighting fixtures available in troffers/lay-ins, panels/strips, downlights and wraparound styles. The CPX™ LED Flat Panel from Lithonia Lighting® is now offered with JOT-embedded controls and is the perfect choice for budget-conscious schools, commercial office, and retail footprint projects. These lighting fixtures can be configured to suit the needs of the space and aid with simple code compliance and energy efficiency.
