Lighting and Lighting Control

Learn about how today’s energy-efficient lighting systems can enhance your building and save energy costs.
Lighting can be a significant operating expense for existing buildings. It is also a key element in a building’s ambience, enhancing the visual comfort and productivity of occupants. 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.

 

Types of Lighting Technologies

Occupancy Sensors

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.

 
Daylight Harvesting

Daylighting controls regulate lighting based on available sunlight, dimming or turning off lights when the level of natural light allows.

 
Addressable Systems

The ability of users to individually adjust lighting levels in their own workspaces improves comfort, increases productivity, and reduces energy consumption.

 
Networked Lighting Controls

Advanced control systems network multiple fixtures together and blend control strategies based on the space, including occupancy sensing, daylight harvesting, task tuning, and dimming.
