Although lighting control solutions have been proven to significantly reduce lighting energy consumption, many parts of commercial building market have been hesitant due to cost, complexity and applicability. However, new wireless technologies are eliminating these concerns, while expanding the lighting control capabilities.
Removing the wires
A new generation of lighting control systems is reducing cost and eliminating complexity concerns by removing the dedicated control wiring.
Instead of placing controls where wiring permits, building owners are free to place controls where they are needed to improve building performance. As the needs of a space change, changes can be made at any point, or new devices and control strategies added, simply by reprogramming.
Once a wireless network is established, that network can grow to cover an ever-expanding area at a low additional cost. Additional sensors, switches and lights require minimal labor and disruption, and utilize the same wireless control system without the need
to add a new control infrastructure.
Lighting control manages and automates the delivery of the correct amount of light, where you want it, when you want it. Lights can automatically turn on/off or dim at set times or under set conditions, and users can have control over their own lighting levels to provide optimal working conditions. A lighting control solution automates and simplifies cost- and energy-saving strategies such as belows.
Turn on/off and dim lights at specified times during the day—for example, automatically turn lights on at the start of business hours, and off after workers leave at night.
Detect when a room is occupied, to automatically turn lights on when someone enters and off (or dim) shortly after they leave.
Use photosensors to detect levels of natural lighting, and automatically dim lights when sunlight is streaming into windows. This reduces energy use and provides consistent lighting levels.
Utility companies frequently offer their customers incentives to encourage them to reduce energy consumption, especially at times of peak usage or when retail energy prices are high. Lighting control solutions can automatically respond to these events and reduce energy consumed by lighting to pre-set levels.
LG Lighting is designed as a wireless-embedded system, which users can control wirelessly by simply inserting a compact communication dongle into the driver. By adopting ZigBee®, an open wireless protocol, the system not only works seamlessly with devices that use the same protocol, but also integrates with the control systems of solution providers like DaintreeNetworks.
