Gateways translate between protocols, and allow existing DALI wired products to be used in a non-DALI wireless ecosystem.
The second approach is wireless DALI, where devices communicate using existing DALI commands, carried over a wireless medium. The DALI devices form the wireless network, and there is no need for translation between protocols. Wireless DALI enables the same set of lighting-control features that are available in DALI-2 and D4i.
Our Blog article explains how the DALI Alliance is addressing the need to constantly enhance DALI with emerging capabilities to support the relevance and growing adoption of the protocol in an IoT world.
