Professional lighting

Build a robust and stable professional lighting platform that will last

Tailored wireless connectivity solutions for professional lighting

As a leader in low power wireless connectivity for the IoT, we provide a comprehensive portfolio of short- and long-range wireless options tailored for the optimal professional lighting solutions. Whether you are looking to build a proprietary- or standards-based professional lighting platform, Nordic Semiconductor is your ideal partner and offers the full range of hardware and software required, supporting all major protocols and current global standards. Examples include Bluetooth Mesh, Thread, Matter, and KNX IoT.

Nordic's wireless connectivity solutions for professional lighting offer maximum design flexibility to meet your application needs. We can help you develop your own mobile app using Nordic's nRF Mesh and nRF Sniffer for Bluetooth LE apps.

There is also the option to use third-party, Nordic SoC-based hardware modules and software tools from our trusted Nordic-certified Design and Solution Partners, helping you get faster to market.

Seamless interoperability with latest Bluetooth standards

Our products support the latest Bluetooth standards for professional lighting, including Bluetooth NLC and Bluetooth Mesh 1.1 featuring DFU over mesh. Both guarantee seamless interoperability across a growing ecosystem of multiple professional lighting vendors.

Multiprotocol solutions for enhanced adaptability

Certain multiprotocol SoCs employed for Bluetooth Mesh can flexibly extend support to non-Bluetooth protocols like Matter and KNX or other standard or proprietary protocols. The only change required is a re-configuration in software, which can be seamlessly executed even after deployment in the field.

Integrating connectivity networks

Nordic also helps customers build bridges, gateways, and routers that can combine any type of connectivity network required, including cellular IoT (both LTE-M and NB-IoT), low power Wi-Fi, and Thread, locally or with the cloud (nRFCloud).

Wireless protocols for Professional lighting


Nordic Semiconductor is a leading provider of low-power wireless communication solutions, utilizing decades of ultra-low-power wireless expertise to maximize Wi-Fi’s low-power potential in various applications including home automation, smart lighting, and other IoT devices.

Bluetooth Low Energy

Want to add Bluetooth Low Energy (Bluetooth LE) connectivity to your product? We offer high-quality BLE SoCs, Bluetooth Low Energy chips, and BT modules with ultra-low power consumption and protocol stacks, ensuring excellent interoperability.

Bluetooth Mesh

Want to add Bluetooth Mesh connectivity to your product? We offer the complete solution for building Bluetooth Mesh products; feature-rich SoCs, a qualified Bluetooth Mesh stack with samples, and a mobile app for interacting with the mesh network.

Bluetooth Direction Finding

Want to build a product based on Bluetooth Direction Finding? We offer high quality SoCs capable of all angle-of-arrival (AoA) and angle-of-departure (AoD) roles in Bluetooth Direction Finding.


We offer the complete solution for building Thread and Matter products; feature-rich SoCs, a qualified mesh stack with samples, and a topology monitor.

2.4 GHz proprietary

2.4 GHz flexibity and simplicity


Matter provides a shared foundation on which to build an application. The goal is to have interoperability between devices and ecosystems.


KNX IoT Point API is a framework that integrates KNX building automation systems with IoT. Thread is used to connect KNX devices and systems to IoT applications via a low-power wireless mesh network, providing reliable and secure communication.

Range extenders

The range and link robustness of Nordic nRF52 and nRF53 Series SoCs fulfill the requirements of most applications and use-cases, but sometimes adding a range extender/RF front end module (FEM) is the correct choice.
