Wired Solution for Single & Connected Spaces

WaveLinx CAT

Simple. Code-Compliant. Scalable.

WaveLinx CAT is your distributed wired lighting control system for single room and connected spaces that helps significantly reduce the building’s energy consumption from a single room/space to a whole building using category CAT5 cable for applications that require occupancy-based, daylighting, or manual light control. The devices automatically discover each other and self-commission. A secure mobile application provides the ability to customize installations for your education, office, and healthcare applications.

Simple to Install

All CAT devices feature two RJ45 connections that are used to provide power to the devices and to control them. Each set of daisy-chained devices forms a single room and can be controlled by the wallstations that chain. Zoning, keypad button programming and sensor settings can be changed quickly via the WaveLinx apps and Bluetooth Programming Interface. 

scalable controls


Scalability makes WaveLinx the ideal commercial lighting solution for small to large indoor and outdoor applications. Use CAT devices to control the lights of each room, and then use WaveLinx Area Hubs and WaveLinx Area Controllers to connect your spaces and take advantage of WaveLinx Area Controller's advanced features. 

Connected Spaces Solutions

Wired and Wireless Solution for Connected and Hybrid Spaces

For larger-scale projects for which wired and wireless need to come together as a hybrid system, the solution is to connect WaveLinx PRO and WaveLinx CAT to the WaveLinx Area Controller.

WaveLinx Area Controllers communicate with wireless devices using PRO protocols over 802.15.4 radio and wired devices via a WaveLinx Area Hub. WaveLinx Area Controller allows you to scale to multiple rooms on an entire floor. WaveLinx CAT devices connect via CAT5 cable or WaveLinx PRO devices via 802.15.4 radio.
