When we talk about lighting control systems, many will think of it as some luxury asset that looks more impressive than helpful; however, the reality is much different.
Lighting control systems offer considerably more in terms of Security, Energy savings, and efficiency. It’s an essential piece of technology that is more and more needed nowadays to use in our buildings, offices, and stores.
So how can lighting control systems be practical? Why install Lighting Control Systems? And why do we need to install them in our facilities?
A lighting control system is an automated system that controls the light fixtures in a building. The control system typically uses some form of input to determine the desired lighting level and then adjusts the output accordingly. This means it can turn on/off the light, dim it, increase its intensity, etc.
The types of inputs can be time-based, occupancy-based, or manual.
Time-based allows a light adjustment based on an Astronomical or chronological time; it relies on the time of the day, the season, the weather…etc. Occupancy-based sensors use ultrasonic or infrared technology to detect whether an area is occupied and adjust the light accordingly.
While manual input uses a combination of all or some of these inputs to adjust and control the lights. It uses wireless devices, programmable schedules, voice control, etc.
