What is the Internet Access Bridge and what does it do?

A HALO Home Internet Access Bridge (Bridge) connects your local Bluetooth Mesh network to the HALO Home Cloud service. The Bridge enables you to:

  • Use your mobile phone to access your local network from any location in the world
  • Connect to an ever growing list of control options, such as Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant.
  • Automatically resync the time of your network in the event of a power outage, daylight savings, etc.
  • Maintain the time every day to improve the accuracy of sunrise/sunset schedules
  • The Bridge acts as another node on the Bluetooth Mesh network. This means that if you lose internet, all your lighting devices, accessories, and schedules will continue to function normally
