As part of View, the Vimar approach to the IoT for smart homes and buildings, the company has forged an important partnership with Philips Lighting, the world leader in lighting.
Previewed by both companies during the Light & Building 2018 exhibition in Frankfurt, the partnership witnesses the introduction of Vimar to the Friends of Hue programme, launched to extend the Philips Hue ecosystem to include more options for consumers in controlling their smart lights.
Today, the technological experience and design of Vimar, at its absolute best in its range of residential series, combines with wireless technology to provide smart control designs for the Hue lamps by Philips Lighting.
The new Vimar commands - which will be available from the last quarter of 2018, in line with the Philips Hue development plan - are based on an Energy Harvesting technological motor and ensure that the user has full control over the wireless lamps. Thanks to power harvesting technology, they are also environment-friendly, with no batteries required.
Characterised by a design in line with what by now become the much-admired stylistic standards of the Italian company, the new devices are available within the three main residential series by Vimar - Eikon, Arké and Plana - to ensure a look that is a perfect match for the energy and data sockets and the full range of different flush-mounted devices in the Vimar catalogue.
For over 70 years, Vimar has been managing the energy of all kinds of buildings, from small apartments to large office blocks or shopping centres, and from prestigious villas to bed & breakfast establishments or large hotels. And it is in this highly dynamic technological setting that, thanks to View and the partnership with Philips Lighting, the company places itself in the front line when it comes to innovation, offering the market a wide range of solutions that blend in perfectly with any architectural environment and can be adapted to complement any living styles.
