Wireless switches offer customers flexibility, options and ease-of-use

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (September 21, 2022) – Universal Douglas, leading manufacturer and provider of LED commercial lighting and controls solutions, has launched a new line of battery-powered Bluetooth switches for both new and retrofit applications. 

The wall station switches work with Universal Douglas Dialog Wireless Bluetooth equipment, do not have neutral requirements, and allow for new installation opportunities featuring a modern style. Each switch station features fully flexible buttons, which allow for ON, OFF and Scene commands to be broadcasted to the wireless lighting control system when activated. The switches come in the following four styles:

  • 8-button Switch (ON, OFF, Scene) - BT-8BTSW-B-A
  • 4-Button Switch (ON, OFF, Scene) - BT-4BTSW-B-A
  • 4 Level Station (High, Medium, Low, OFF) - BT-4LVLS-B-A
  • 4 Preset/Scene Station (Scene 1-3 & OFF)- BT-4SCNE-B-A

The new battery-powered wall switches are easily installed with no wires, installs in a standard 1-gang backbox, fit the standard ‘Decora’ style face plates, and are compatible with Universal fixtures, Douglas controls and retrofit kits.

“Universal Douglas continues to keep up with today’s fast-paced and technologically advanced world, where simplicity and ease-of-use is more important than ever,” said Anthony Lee, Director of Product Management for Lighting Controls. “Our new line of wireless switches provides customers with flexibility and options which is what the market demands today.”

The Bluetooth switches come with a 10-year battery life. For additional convenience, the switches are compatible with iOS 13+ applications, offering deck level programming and secured with a network key and 128-bit encryption. 

Universal Douglas is a manufacturer and provider of both commercial lighting and controls solutions, giving customers all that they need under the same roof.
