Hubbell Lighting has announced the launch of Kim Lighting’s LightVault 8, billed as the first outdoor LED luminaire controlled using Bluetooth wireless technology. The solid brass fixture, which features LED optics, uses high-speed Bluetooth technology to enable field aiming and dimming while offering control from a user's iPhone, Android or tablet.

Representing a new family of LED in-grade luminaires, the LightVault 8’s Bluetooth connectivity has allowed Kim Lighting to keep the LED light engine completely sealed from the ingress of water, dust, mud and debris. The luminaire is available in different versions to support spot, wall-wash and narrow flood in-grade applications; multiple color temperatures; up to 2,500 lumens output; and flat-lens, half-shield, eyeball, rock guard and directional marker-style housings.

The LightVault 8 runs cool to touch (less than 40 degrees C) and the LEDs have a life in excess of 100,000+ hours. In addition to custom dimming and aiming using a Bluetooth-enabled iOS or Android device with Kim Lighting's LightVault 8 app, the light distribution can be customized using optional hex louvre, prism lens and spread lens filters. The in-grade luminaire moves 15 degrees in any direction and offers variable dimming to 20% in 1% increments.

The Bluetooth-enabled LightVault 8 expands Hubbell Lighting’s collection of wireless products. To learn more or view demos of the mobile apps, visit:
