The solid brass fixture, which features leading-edge LED optics, uses high-speed Bluetooth technology to enable field aiming and dimming. “Hubbell Lighting has always been a leader in professional grade wireless control, and our innovative use of Bluetooth technology in Kim Lighting’s LightVault 8 is nothing short of brilliant,” said Scott Muse, President of Hubbell Lighting. Nearly 80 years of Kim Lighting's landscape lighting expertise, the latest developments in energy-efficient LED technology, and advanced wireless communications have combined to produce the most durable, versatile, advanced in-grade luminaire available anywhere—the LightVault 8. Available in May 2013, the luminaire will be available in 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. In addition to custom dimming and aiming using a Bluetooth-enabled iOS or Android device using Kim Lighting's LightVault 8 app, the light distribution can be customized using optional hex louvre, prism lens and spread lens filters.
