Avi-on is proud to announce the release of Avi-on Pro, simple Bluetooth Mesh lighting controls that are easy to install, easy to change, and easy to live with.
With Avi-on Pro, you can program and control your entire home, office, building, or landscape using bulbs, fixtures, wireless and wired switches, sensors, and other lighting products from major brands and installers.
New! Basic or Pro Features to Fit Your Needs
The Avi-on app allows you to program lights, switches, and sensors using the same control system--indoors and out. There are two levels of accounts: Basic and Pro.
> In general, the features in Basic* include instant set-up, secure login, schedules with sunrise/sunset, and countdown timers.
> The features in Pro* are designed for managing whole building, home, office, and landscape installations. Depending on your product's manufacturer, Pro Accounts includes all of the Basic features plus some or all of the following additions: device favorites and sorting, grouping, schedules and scenes for devices plus groups, and/or transitions.
> With both Basic and Pro, there are device-dependent features such as dimming and/or color-changing. Purchase of the "Avi-on Remote Access Bridge" or RAB gives you global access and 24/7 clock synchronization using the Internet, plus optional compatibility with Amazon's Echo and Dot in certain regions.*
The Avi-on app allows you to manage and control any Avi-on compatible device. With Avi-on, you can control and program your network with no wi-fi hub or gateway required. All schedules and settings are saved on the local devices, and they work as programmed with or without the Internet or your phone nearby.
Avi-on compatible devices include the following products:
• GE Brand Bluetooth Switches and Dimmers
• Avi-on Indoor and Outdoor Switches, Fixture Adaptors, Controllers and Remote Access Bridge
• ERP LED Drivers
• SPJ Flexlink Outdoor Controls
• More coming soon…
Why a login and password?
Avi-on is designed for multi-device networks, and users who care about security. Your password-protected account allows only authorized users to program your network, enables many users to control many devices with a single account, and provides instant settings recovery if you lose or change phones.
How does "Instant Set Up" work?
Once you have powered your Avi-on compatible device by plugging it in or wiring it, set up takes only a few moments. Stand near the powered device(s). Download the app and register your account and password.
From the app's dashboard, press the "Big Plus" button to add your first device. Avi-on's Bluetooth Mesh technology will list any Avi-on devices that are in range, and invite you to add them to your account.
Once qualified devices have been added, you can instantly use your Basic or Pro features to control and program individual devices or groups.

What's New in Version 1.6.0
1.6.0 is a major release requiring a firmware update to access two new sets of features: Avi-on Basic and Avi-on Pro. Depending on your product, Avi-on Basic includes free upgrades such as “On at Last Dimming Level” and “Updated Scheduling.” Avi-on Pro products may offer scenes, favorites and sorting, and/or transitions.
Great customer support. I had the same issue with crashing after the new update and new features. Avi-on was quick to respond and help. After uninstalling and reinstalling, everything is working properly. I especially like the new feature that remembers the dim level when the timer turns it on and off. That was something I was looking forward to from when I first purchased this product. Thanks Avi-on.
Upgraded phone app without issue but now app crashes upon attempting to open
Attempting firmware update as instructed but unable to even start because phone app is crashing upon opening application. Have installed on 2 iPhones (6 and 7) and iPad Air with same results :(
Update- Support responded, recommending a solution that resolved the issue.
Happy it is resolved and pleased with new features.
Internet down? No controlling your lights! Devices disappear randomly too- last night the switches were not there, just the add a device screen this morning they are back- yes, local Bluetooth devices dependent on a server infrastructure and connectivity is someone's idea of a good design- which means putting these where they're out of sight/reach is a horrible idea- you will need to press the buttons. Going to ditch these for a competitor's device that works locally.
Broken with the new update, Bluetooth icon doesn't even blink. No more lazy, out the go.
