Prolojik Indigo: A Revolution in Wireless Lighting Control

“There is a way to do it better. Find it.“

This is how Thomas Edison used to motivate his staff, by suggesting that whatever they were working on, there is a better way to do things and it is incumbent upon them to find it. This philosophy is how his teams were able to achieve so much and eventually apply for US patent 223,898 (granted on January 27, 1880) for an electric lamp using “a carbon filament or strip coiled and connected to platina contact wires”. It was an evolution of older ideas, not anything new.

Alessandro Volta demonstrated the glowing wire known as the ‘Voltaic Pile’ in 1800, and other types of lights were coming to fruition, but Edison believed that there was a better way, and used materials such as carbonised bamboo for filament. He dreamed of lighting so cheap and so efficient that “only the rich would still use candles”. He persisted in finding a better way.

Doing It Better

In the dynamic landscape of contemporary lighting control solutions, Prolojik takes a similar approach to smart lighting systems.  Prolojik Indigo offers a comprehensive suite of products designed to lower costs, enhance flexibility, and empower users – designed to “do it better” if you will. “It” being cost-effective, easy to commission lighting systems for small spaces.

There had to be a way to do it better, and that is where Prolojik Indigo was conceived. Initially introduced through the award-winning Prolojik Go, the Indigo product range has evolved into a family of cutting-edge lighting controllers, in-luminaire interfaces, sensors, and edge gateways, presenting a fully wireless, mesh system with a seamless App-based setup and commission.

Prolojik is a leading innovator in intelligent lighting control solutions, leveraging cutting-edge technology to create sustainable, user-friendly systems that enhance the modern workspace experience.

Awards and Recognition

Prolojik Indigo has garnered industry acclaim for its design and technical innovation, clinching prestigious accolades such as the 2018 Lux Control Product Award and the 2019 RedDot Design Award, with judges for the latter commenting that [Prolojik] “Go convinces with clever and innovative functionality that enables particularly easy handling and versatile configur­ability.” The system’s uniqueness extends beyond appearance, with numerous groundbreaking innovations embedded in every aspect of its design.

Key Features

Bluetooth Connectivity

Prolojik Indigo harnesses the power of Bluetooth 4.2 and 5.0, delivering enhanced performance and security. This enables seamless communication between devices, laying the foundation for a robust and secure wireless network.

Mesh Technology

The system utilises Bluetooth mesh technology to build wireless networks among several devices, facilitating the sharing of commands and reporting of system data. This interconnectedness enhances the overall efficiency and responsiveness of the lighting control system. It also makes the system easy to use and re-commission if required.

Comprehensive Functionality

Prolojik Indigo offers a wide array of functionalities, including daylight regulation, occupancy control, scene control, and emergency testing and reporting. This versatility makes it an ideal choice for a diverse range of applications, from healthcare and education establishments to laboratories and commercial office spaces.

Electrical Contractor-Friendly

Designed with the installer in mind, Indigo empowers electrical contractors by providing full control. The Indigo local Lighting Control Modules (LCMs) can be easily installed, commissioned, and signed off within the intuitive and free App, putting the control back in the hands of the professionals. Prolojik remains on hand with a range of ProCare contracts available should clients require it.

Robust Security Measures

The system prioritises security with AES-128 encryption, ensuring data integrity and system security from mesh to application to cloud. This support for secure client-managed systems reflects Prolojik’s commitment to safeguarding sensitive information.

Cross-Platform Compatibility

Prolojik Indigo’s free App is available on both Apple AppStore and Google Play and is compatible with Android and iOS devices. The system also supports over-the-air updates, ensuring users always have the latest features and enhancements at their fingertips.

Configurations and Flexibility

Prolojik understood the importance of adaptability when designing the Indigo range, offering various configurations to suit lighting schemes and ceiling designs. Whether through the Bluetooth meshed pluggable DALI LCM named Go or the in-luminaire and in-line versions, Indigo adapts to diverse requirements.
