Sensor Switch® Mobile App

Programming in a Flash!

Save time on the job with the Sensor Switch® Mobile App, an easier and faster approach to sensor configuration than push-button programming.

The mobile app uses your smartphone’s camera flash or Bluetooth® technology to configure settings on VLP-enabled Sensor Switch occupancy sensors, photocontrols and luminaire-embedded sensors. Set occupancy time delay, trim values, photocontrol options and more with this visually intuitive tool.

Visible Light Programming (VLP)

Use for 6-8 ft. range

Use the camera flash on your mobile device to transmit a sequence of flashes to change the setting on your sensor. Programming occupancy sensors and photocontrols has never been easier than with the VLP app.

Bluetooth® Wireless Programming

Use for up to 100 ft. range

You now have the ability to program multiple sensor settings using Bluetooth wireless technology, eliminating the need to use a lift or get out a ladder. Now all programming can be done from the ground using the app's Bluetooth® technology.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • 1. If I can program multiple sensors at the same time, that seems like a network. What am I missing?

    The Sensor Switch mobile app allows the user to select all sensors in Bluetooth® radio range and que them up to set options. Once you push those options the app will connect to each selected sensor, one at a time, and configure it.
  • 2. Are Bluetooth® programmable sensors via Sensor Switch available as discreet devices?

    Today, Bluetooth® programmable sensors are offered in select industrial high bay products. More will be released in additional platforms in the future but is not currently offered as a discreet device to ensure compatibility.
  • 3. Do I still have the option to use push-button programming on VLP-enabled sensors?

    Sensor programming using the Sensor Switch mobile app does not eliminate traditional push-button programming. The mobile app is an alternative option that helps overcome the complexity of push-button programming and reduce time on the job for contractors. All VLP-enabled products are programmable using both the Sensor Switch mobile app or the traditional push-button method.
  • 4. What is the default PIN code?

    There is no default PIN code. Upon installation, you will be required to set the PIN code. If your application exceeds 500 fixtures, you can process an RFD requesting a pre-set PIN code.
  • 5. Why do I have to login to the Sensor Switch mobile app?

    A login gives you the benefit of being able to save profiles. We want to be able to help you remember things like PIN codes and typical configuration settings that may be associated with particular jobs and application spaces.
  • 6. What is the difference between the Sensor Switch Mobile App versus the Acuity VLP Mobile App?
