How we control our lighting systems has a significant impact on how efficient they are in terms of lighting usage. Sure, LEDs are more efficient, but if you leave them on when they’re not being used, you’re missing out on a cost-saving opportunity.
At GreenBee Energy Efficiency, we can upgrade your lighting controls to help eliminate user error in energy usage. We have performed the following upgrades for lighting controls:
- Photocell – A photocell is a lighting control that operates outdoor lighting. It turns lights on when it gets dark and turns lights off when the sun comes up.
- Daylight Controls – Daylight controls work with dimming. They are commonly seen in warehouses where there are skylights and big garages. When the facility opens, and daylight comes in, we can dim the light to where the client still has enough light but is using the minimum amount needed. This way, lights are operating at maximum efficiency.
- Occupancy Sensors – These are sensors that are set up to sense when someone is in the room. With occupancy sensors, you’re being efficient by only utilizing lighting when someone is in the room and not wasting energy.
- Advanced Lighting Controls (ALCs) – ALCs are a way for a client to control all aspects of their lighting system using a tablet or a computer system. LED light controllers are useful because you can operate your system remotely, ensuring that you’re being as energy efficient as possible even if you aren’t on premise.
