Austin, TX –Hubbell Building Automation announces that the free NX Room Setup Tool smart phone app is fully functional and currently released in beta. With this, both iOS and Android phones and tablets can be used to set up NX Room Controllers via Bluetooth radio. Hubbell Building Automation is a provider of occupancy sensors and lighting controls with a strong commitment to innovation.

The NXBTR Bluetooth radio module simply plugs into any available SmartPORT connection in the room. The NXBTR can be left permanently installed to allow ongoing control capability. Or a single module can be moved from room to room for one-time setup. Once the NXBTR is plugged into a SmartPORT outlet and the App started, an automatic discovery occurs and the App displays all the NXBTR radios in range. An intuitive five-bar signal strength indicator aids in determining the appropriate room. Selecting the radio module you want starts an automatic discovery of all connected NX devices such as Room Controllers, Occupancy Sensors, Digital Smart Switches, and Daylight Sensors that are installed in the room.

Bluetooth radio has become the standard for short range wireless communication between all types of devices. With this, Hubbell Building Automation's NX Distributed Control system offers maximum flexibility for wireless set up.

During the beta period, it is necessary to contact the HBA Technical Services department to obtain the App. We will make an announcement when the App is available for open download from the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store.
