Cadiant Touchscreen Controls

The Cree Lighting Cadiant Touchscreen Control's skylight and tablet application is a perfect testimony to innovation and execution in the world of IoT and smart lighting technology. Over several years the Cree Lighting engineering team developed an innovative, unique lighting array that can simulate a real skylight from clear skies, to cloudy, down to the movement of the sun in the sky throughout the day. Before releasing the product, the Cree Lighting engineering team brought in Lithios to develop a consumer facing tablet application that could match the years of innovation in the lights that it controls. The Cadiant Touchscreen Control's tablet integrates directly with Cree LIghting's world-class lighting systems to offer complete and advanced controls in a seamless, easy-to-use interface.
