ACTIVEAHEAD GENERATION 2
Find out why ActiveAhead is the ultimate wireless lighting solution!
Truly intelligent wireless lighting
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.
Future-proof solution with cloud connectivity
Lower building operation costs and increase peace of mind with advanced data analytics. Increase security and wellbeing for occupants through smart lighting logic.
ActiveAhead is designed for a data-driven future. It enables services that will improve performance and ensure spaces remain comfortable with round-the-clock monitoring and maintenance.

"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."
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. Then, 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
ActiveAhead Nodes – Standard or DALI
Always looking, always learning. ActiveAhead Nodes communicate to 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
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.
