Michael McHale Designs is interested in re-thinking what chandeliers can do. Our Bushwick Collection of chandeliers, pendants and lamps are designed to utilize tech such as Amazon Alexa on board. They can also be wired to be compliant with Power over Ethernet ("POE") standards, so that they can be wired in simply by plugging in an ethernet cable to the wall or ceiling.
Chandeliers with Alexa (or Google Home) on Board
The Bushwick Collection is our take on glitterbox chandelier lighting. Interlocking frames hold a double-wall of astonishing, high-quality crystal. They are astonishing fixtures on their own, but they are designed so that your Amazon Echo Dot or Google Nest Mini device may be installed directly into the light itself. Doing this does a number of things:
- Hides all unsightly plastic boxes, transformers, and wires.
- Places the smart microphones and speakers of your home in the preferred position favored by sound professionals: in the middle of the room.
- Puts the LED feedback lights of the Alexa Echo Dot or Google Nest Mini unit behind a double wall of crystal for a beautiful effect.
- When used with smart bulbs, allows you to turn the lights on and off using only voice commands.
Power over Ethernet Decorative Lighting
Power Over Ethernet (or "PoE") has become an increasingly popular electrical standard for new commercial and hospitality constructions. Instead of standard 110/220 volt wiring, low voltage ethernet cables provide power to everything.
But this system can only work for PoE-ready appliances and devices. Up until now, there hasn't really been much in the way of PoE decorative lighting.
Michael McHale Designs is pleased to announce that we have adapted our innovative Bushwick Collection of chandeliers, pendants, and lamps specifically for PoE use. These gorgeous glitterbox lights are designed to contain technology onboard, and are therefore ideal for PoE adaptation. When ordering, please let us know your PoE voltage requirements, and we will deliver fixtures to you which will be plug-and-play. Just plug in the attached ethernet cable and you are ready to go.
