Controlling light not only enhances the experience, improves visibility, but it can also result in up to 70% reduction in lighting costs. Below are other key applications about lighting control that may help your business.
Lighting Controls are perfect for a variety of settings
The latest products in lighting controls provide flexibility for numerous environments. These controls can be scaled from a single room, entire floor or a portfolio of skyscrapers. The controls also provide the flexibility to provide zonal and fixture-based control. This will enable building managers to adapt work space to meet today’s works environments. Settings where lighting control applications can be applied include:

Lighting Controls can increase efficiency
By upgrading the controls on your lighting system, you can automatically save energy by using occupancy sensors that will automatically turn on or off depending on whether the room is occupied. Daylight harvesting using photo-sensors, can detect natural light levels and adjust your lighting accordingly to save energy. By using sensors for occupancy and daylight harvesting, you can dim or turn off lighting when it is not being used. Turning the lights down by just a small percentage will result in energy savings without forfeiting the room’s light levels. The use of lighting controls can help create the perfect balance between natural and electric light and create an inviting and energy efficient environment.
