Meet Your New
Human-Centric
Lighting 'mate.'
Via app-based 'map2match'
technology, mate. facilitates HCL
installations to create simplified
circadian rhythm LED lighting with
precise color and temperature
throughout a home. By Arlen Schweiger
FOR INTEGRATORS looking
to match their customers
with an LED lighting system
that suits them, an appbased
system might be their
new tech " mate. "
Based in Oklahoma City,
with background in control
and automation for well over
a decade, mate. is a solution
that can assist integrators in
their efforts to better, more
natural lighting to homeowners
who may be interested
in circadian/human-centric
lighting.
" During that time, we've
become really passionate
about circadian rhythms
and human-centric lighting, "
co-creator Jenn Upton tells
CE Pro. " One of the things
that we've really studied and
homed in on are identifying
tricky parts of tunable white
lighting before you can really
share it with the masses.
We've fine-tuned that, and
that's really where mate. was
born - our app bringing all
those solutions together for
12 | CE Pro October 2021
integrators. "
Custom integrators have
been hearing much more
about circadian lighting and
HCL in the past several years
as part of the industry's wellness
and biophilia push.
Upton says one of the
biggest features of mate.
is bringing everything into
a hardwired low-voltage
solution. With integrators
always looking for differentiators,
that could be a benefit
for reminding customers of
the reliability of hardwired
vs. wireless when it comes to
installation technologies.
" Right now you see a lot of
products on the market that
are wireless, and one of the
things that can trip up integrators
is that with it being
wireless, all the technology
has to be in the bulb, " Upton
notes. " And so what mate.
brings to the table, all of our
technology is built into our
app, so it can be a low-voltage
solution, and that solves
a lot of your problems. "
Instead of putting extra strain on the LED bulb, mate.
focused software intelligence in the app for hardwired
low-voltage lighting.
Integrators can learn more
at matecontrol.com about
why it's a big deal that mate.
and LED fixtures specialist
Environmental Lights have
separated the power conversion
electronics from the
light, maintaining the long
lifespan of the fixture. The
small amount of heat dissipates
into the ceiling, while
the power supplies continue
running at their full potential,
the company explains.
A second key feature
of the mate. app-based
platform, Upton says, is that
once hardwired low-voltage
in-ceiling downlights are
ready, the mate. app can help
owners dial in what might
otherwise be a real mess of
mismatched lighting color
temperatures.
" We built into our app
technology called 'map2match'
- where all of your
lighting can be profiled and
everything can be the same
color throughout the house,
so when you're looking
through your window it will
match what your outdoors
will look like to bringing the
sun in, " Upton explains.
The app facilitates " no
configuration " setup. During
a project construction,
hardwired installed lights
are set to full bright; upon
completion, activating
mate.'s solar scenes is easy
via the app. Scenes can be
edited within the app, and
enabled/disabled via a simple
rocker switch on the wall
gives owners the look and
feel they're used to for their
everyday lighting.
Mate. can further tweak
the color temperature to
account for influences like
wallpaper in a room, and
overall the map2match
tech ensures downlights,
under-cabinet lights and
tunable lamps all match for
color and brightness.
