Hubbell Building Automation’s NX app in beta testing
By Renée Francoeur
November 11, 2015 – Hubbell Building Automation says the free NX room setup tool smart phone app is now fully functional and has been released in beta. With this, both iOS and Android phones and tablets can be used to set up NX Room Controllers via Bluetooth radio.
The NXBTR Bluetooth radio module plugs into any available SmartPort connection in the room and can be left permanently installed to allow ongoing control capability, Hubbell says. Or a single module can be moved from room to room for one-time setup.
Once the NXBTR is plugged in and the app started, an automatic discovery occurs and displays all the NXBTR radios in range. An intuitive five-bar signal strength indicator aids in determining the appropriate room.
During the beta period, it is necessary to contact the HBA Technical Services department to obtain the app. The company says it will make an announcement when the app is available for open download from the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store.
Hubbell Building Automation is a provider of occupancy sensors and lighting controls.
