Casambi was founded in summer 2011 by Timo Pakkala, CEO, and Elena Lehtimaki, CTO, with the belief that smartphones and wireless technologies can fundamentally change the way we interface with everyday objects around us. Timo and Elena have a long history of creating innovative software solutions both in Nokia as well as in start-ups.
The Casambi solution is based on Bluetooth Low Energy, the state-of-the-art wireless technology and the only low power wireless technology in all modern smartphones, tablets and even smart watches, making it the only mainstream and future proof low power radio technology in the world. Bluetooth Low Energy was developed at Nokia Research Center where both Timo and Elena worked. That’s why Casambi has had the unique advantage in realising the potential of Bluetooth Low Energy early on. Casambi started the development of the solution before there were any Bluetooth Low Energy devices on the market.
Today Casambi is the clear leader in modern wireless lighting control solutions based on Bluetooth Low Energy. Key aspects of the Casambi solution are great user experience, high performance and scalability from basic individual fixture controls to industrial scale solutions with cloud based remote control, monitoring and data logging.
Casambi’s business model is to be a technology and solution provider for our partners. Casambi technology can be integrated into fixtures, LED-drivers and even with the LED-modules, creating an optimal solution in terms of ease of installation and functionality with minimal additional hardware and deployment costs.
