Wireless Lighting Control – ActiveAhead Generation 2
Find out why ActiveAhead is the ultimate wireless lighting control solution!
Truly Intelligent Wireless Lighting Control
Self-learning with enhanced comfort
Wirelessly networked ActiveAhead Nodes use a smart algorithm to learn how the space is used. The luminaires collect data from their own sensors as well as from the other luminaires which surround them. They also respond to the amount of natural light in the space.
Due to its intelligence, the lighting level remains optimal for the user and it continuously adapts to possible changes.
Energy efficient buildings
Compared to an LED-based switched luminaire, ActiveAhead takes comfort to a totally new level while offering substantial energy savings.
In addition to increasing the lights in a predictive manner, the Nodes dim the lights in a smart way depending on the space usage, thus helping to save energy.
Simple and fast installation
Luminaires fitted with ActiveAhead are extremely easy to install. Just fix the luminaires to their intended position and switch on the mains. No control wiring, programming or configuration is needed.
Optional customisation and grouping is possible using the ActiveAhead mobile app. Continuous learning means that the system adjusts lighting automatically, without the need for any manual re-configuration.
Learn more about ActiveAhead
The self-learning, future-proof wireless lighting control solution ActiveAhead was selected for Ramboll Headquarters to cover the office floors. It is also used throughout the parking garage, providing impressive energy savings. There are a total of around 3000 ActiveAhead Control Units installed on-site.
"As we wanted all building systems to have state-of-the-art technology available, we selected Helvar’s wireless, self-learning and future-proof lighting control solution ActiveAhead."
"One of the smart building features of the Helvar system is that it enables us to collect occupancy data for all spaces. This helps us understand how our building is used and it’s in line with our smart building ambition."
"Our staff have been really happy with this steady level of lighting and when they’ve been told that the lighting system is actual adjusting itself based on daylight, it has pleased them further."
"As we changed the layout of our office from a small-room office layout into an activity based open plan office, we wanted the lighting level to be the same in all areas when people move from one place to another. At the same time, we also wanted to be able to control the lighting system based on personal needs."

How to configure ActiveAhead in a Parking Garage?
This super simple step-by-step guide shows just how easy and fast it is to configure ActiveAhead using the ActiveAhead app!
ActiveAhead – Choose your setup
Choosing the right setup for your project is easy. Based on the space and luminaire types, select the Node and the corresponding suitable LED Driver. Where applicable, simply choose the sensor and a possible holder for it. For spaces such as meeting rooms, add the wireless control panel and you’re good to go. If necessary, fine-tune the configuration on-site using the ActiveAhead mobile app.
1 Choose your Node
Always looking, always learning. ActiveAhead Nodes communicate with each other through Bluetooth Mesh network, predicting where light is needed next. An ActiveAhead Node starts learning from the moment it’s powered up and it never stops.
2 Choose your Driver
ActiveAhead Drivers – Freedom or DALI
The Helvar LED Driver offering is designed for energy efficient, long lasting, high quality and professional lighting applications. When selecting a DALI system, you can bring your DALI light fittings into an ActiveAhead network to give them the power to learn and predict.
3 Choose your Sensor
Work with ActiveAhead Node and ActiveAhead Node Advanced products. ActiveAhead Node Sense has inbuilt sensors.
Stick on and start
With no wires or cables, this optional self-powered Panel sticks straight to the wall and is ideal for meeting rooms. It speaks to ActiveAhead Nodes, so you can select from four different lighting scenes.
