Lighting Hardware & Software


MeshTek lighting hardware and software quickly transforms existing commercial or residential LED lighting fixtures into IoT smart lights without expensive research and development. This enables existing or future LED lighting products to be locally controlled and scheduled using the same Bluetooth mesh technology that currently powers over 100K smart LED lighting devices. MeshTek lighting products include everything you need to commission, control, and manage large lighting networks.

LED Lighting Controllers

MeshTek LED Lighting Controllers provide a plug-and-play solution for connecting various LED products to the Internet of Things. Simply wire one of our analog or PWM controllers between an LED driver and LED load to achieve on/off control, brightness control, scheduling automation and more.

What makes MeshTek great for LED applications? Every MeshTek Lighting Controller features our patented HyperLux Technology, maximizing the LED driver's performance in multichannel lighting devices (e.g. a standard multicolor horticulture luminaire with RGBW diodes, where each channel is able to consume 100W of power).

The HyperLux Advantage

  • High LED driver utilization, leading to a lower system cost as multiple drivers or a high power LED drivers are not required
  • Maximum light output for millions of color combinations, up to 4-times more in 4-channel LED driving schemes (compared to standard LED driving scheme)
  • Significant reduction in number of luminaires or LED drivers to achieve similar brightness for each of million color combination possible
  • Significant cost savings in space utilization, installation, and maintenance of a lighting device

In existing multichannel LED driving schemes with a 100W LED driver, there are limitations on how much power can be pumped through each LED string. Each LED string is limited to a certain power level, such that combined power through all LED strings doesn't exceed 100W (e.g. 25W limit for each LED string illustrated below).

In this case, the 100% utilization of the LED driver occurs only when each LED string is carrying 25W simultaneously. In all other cases, the LED driver utilization drops significantly. Moreover, the maximum lumen output possible from each LED string is always going to be limited by how much power is set for that string given the total available power of the LED driver.

In the example below, even when each LED string can carry 100W, the standard driving scheme can pass a maximum of 25W, thus limiting the lumens equivalent to 25W.



Our innovative HyperLux technology provides a critical solution for LED manufacturers. A specific software algorithm running on a MeshTek Lighting Controller drives RGBW channels (or any multichannel LED strings) with maximum power carrying capacity. In the illustrated example, all 100W can be passed on to each LED string or a combination of LED strings from a limited 100W LED driver. Therefore, the LED driver utilization is 100% with maximum lumens output from each string.
