Kessil WiFi Dongle
OverviewThe Kessil WiFi Dongle is the simplest, most reliable wireless lighting option in the market. Used together with the best-in-class A360X, the WiFi Dongle’s small frame plugs into the fixture’s K-Link port, and gives users the ability to remotely control a wide array of features through Kessil’s intuitive app. The Dongle is able to control dozens of lights from one reliable signal, thereby minimizing signal interference and leading to a faster, more reliable connection.
One Signal. Minimal Interference
Why have a tangle of wireless signals for every light when you could only have one? Together with K-Link cables, the WiFi Dongle controls dozens of lights from one signal. This minimizes wireless interference, leading to a faster, more reliable connection.
The WiFi Dongle has passed long-term, in-depth field testing and antenna optimization to ensure reliability and efficiency. And with an extension cable, the WiFi Dongle can be easily relocated to the optimal location,perfect for retailers and canopy users.
Ease of Service
By keeping the light and its wireless capabilities separate, users can upgrade to the latest WiFi technology without replacing the entire fixture. This modularity also makes it easier to troubleshoot, further saving time and upgrade costs.
The app gives users access to advanced manual controls and program customization, as well as the ability to sync groups of lights. Features include full color control, acclimation, lunar cycle, weather effects, and more!
