One of the surest ways to reduce energy consumption for lighting relates not to the fixture, but to electronic controls that turn off or dim lights when conditions allow. Combining different control technologies allows building managers to carefully tailor lighting conditions to the requirements of specific spaces. A variety of control technologies are available, offering solutions for a wide range of applications and spaces.
These simple, inexpensive sensors ensure that lights only operate when a room is occupied. Easily added to existing lighting, occupancy sensors are ideal for areas that are not in constant use, such as restrooms, storage areas, and conference rooms.
Daylighting controls regulate lighting based on available sunlight, dimming or turning off lights when the level of natural light allows.
The ability of users to individually adjust lighting levels in their own workspaces improves comfort, increases productivity, and reduces energy consumption.
