Save on Energy
Less hardware, More hard-wired. When the lighting industry introduced LED’s to the market, that was only half of the low voltage solution. High voltage wire is still being used to supply LED’s power. Today, we offer the full package; the light fixture, low voltage power and lighting control saving you impactful energy costs.
Find your Daily Rhythm™
Automatic solar scenes adjust both the color and dim level of your lighting to match the sun’s sequence leaving you with an improved daily rhythm. Change your light, Change your day.
What is map2match?
A light fixtures’ color temperature is fundamental in finding your daily rhythm. But what happens when your ceiling downlights are right where you want them, but your under counter lighting and over counter pendants are all different color temperatures? With our built-in map2match™ technology, selecting each light profile is simple and color matching all tunable fixtures is automatic. And the best part, not only are your lights now tuned to the outdoor color, but so will your circadian rhythm.
Why hardwired and not wireless?
The lighting industry had to start somewhere with tunable lighting, but can we all agree that hard wiring control to a fixture is always better when given the opportunity? We offer this hardwired solution to manufacturers. Less hardware, more hard wired.
Why is low voltage a better solution for lighting than high voltage?
LED bulbs themselves are a low voltage solution. By using low voltage wiring and power, the heat exchange is dramatically reduced thereby significantly increasing the longevity of the fixture.
What is Circadian Rhythm or Human Centric Lighting?
Circadian rhythm can be defined as your internal body clock which helps to manage both physical and mental wellbeing. Human centric lighting mimics the sun’s color change throughout the day to simulate that of the outdoors.
Can I do a hybrid system?
Yes. If you have an existing control system, mate can be a stand alone lighting control system.
Can I run this on google?
We do have a Google assistant plugin for the Android users of the home. However, an Apple iPad is required for the home server that mate runs on.
What is Apple homekit?
HomeKit is a software framework by Apple, made available in iOS/iPadOS that lets users configure, communicate with, and control smart-home appliances using Apple devices. We built our backbone on homekit because of its stability and security measures for our daily users with mate.
Is this a subscription?
No. We want to help everyone find their daily rhythm and knew removing a monthly subscription would be a big step in the right direction.
What if I want to adjust the brightness of my lights manually?
All light dimming and color can be manually adjusted within mate. When using our rockers, the room can be physically switched, removing power to the fixture.

Thanks so much to the amazing team who created this app, it’s a real game changer.
I’ve just started using this app. I already have quite a few HomeKit devices and this connected immediately and is better than the home app. I really love it.
If you have HomeKit, this app is a must. Apple leaves most of their automation creation up to third parties and this is the only app I’ve found that works perfectly to connect them all into one app. The interface is minimal and pleasing to the eye.
So easy to set up and manage. Never thought I would be able to integrate my home like this without spending thousands! Game. Changer!
This is a life-saver, thank you. It makes everything so easy.
This App is amazing! It makes life so easy and efficient. I love how I am able to make all of my home devices communicate through this easy to use App. mate is a life saver!!!
Beautiful, easy to install and use and such fun! I feel so empowered that I can control everything in my home when I’m not even there!
Absolutely gorgeous, I’m in awe! Very user friendly!
What a beautiful interface. So easy to use!
