Mount Kelvin Mesh - Technical foundation

Mount Kelvin Mesh is a fully wireless system based on Wirepas and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE in short). The main principle behind Wirepas is mesh networking, meaning the wireless devices form connections with all other surrounding devices, forming a tightly knit web that does not have a single point of failure. The messages are sent from device to device over radio, more specifically a 2.4 GHz radio similar to Bluetooth.

Mount Kelvin is always delivered with a cloud-connected gateway, which enables updates, monitoring, configuration, and controlling to be done remotely from anywhere in the world. Cloud connectivity also enables third party integrations to HVACs (heating, ventilation & air-conditioning) and BMSs (building management system). In effect, Mount Kelvin turns the building into a software platform which improves over time as new features and options are added, without the need to replace the electrical infrastructure when new functionality is rolled out.

The wireless structure of Mount Kelvin makes it especially well suited for retrofits as the wireless devices either need no cabling or utilize the existing power cabling.
