The wireless area controller (WAC) is the main component of the WaveLinx wireless controlled lighting (WCL) system. WaveLinx eliminates the cost and complexity of typical wireless control system commissioning while providing a flexible and reconfigurable topology for on the fly space adjustments. The WaveLinx system meets modern code and utility requirements, delivers energy and cost savings, while enabling buildings to become smart buildings. The WAC coordinates between the WaveLinx smart and connected mobile app and various WaveLinx devices to create communications and a building ecosystem that provides out of the box functionality and leverages Eaton's patent pending automatic code commissioning features. Using standard based wireless mesh compliant topology the WAC communicates to various WaveLinx standard based devices to provide area, lighting zone configuration, monitoring and control.
