Are you in control of your energy use? With LED technology and lighting controls, you can easily take the reins and transform your office into an energy-efficient space. In this post, we’ll show you just how simple it is to take charge of your lighting with lighting controls.
What Are Lighting Controls?
Gone are the days of leaving the office and wondering whether you turned off the lights. With lighting controls, you can take advantage of the flexibility provided by advanced technology such as dimmers and occupancy sensors. A variety of options are available not only to save energy, but to create different lighting levels for different spaces in your building. Below you’ll find some of the most popular options for lighting controls.
Dimmers allow you to adjust the light intensity in any space. You can easily take a room from full brightness to a gentle glow, changing not only the lighting, but the ambiance. With today’s technology, you can invest in a smart lighting system that allows you to control your dimmers remotely or schedule when lights should be dimmed. This is great for rooms with natural light that don’t need much artificial light during peak times of the day. By adjusting your lights and scheduling your lighting needs, you’ll save energy and money.
Motion Sensors and Photosensors
Exterior motion sensors turn on lights whenever they detect movement, which is great for saving energy. These motion sensors often come with a photosensor, which stays turned off when it senses daylight and powers on at night. Patios and sidewalks are common places where these lighting controls are used.
Occupancy sensors are ideal for indoor spaces such as conference rooms, employee lounges, restrooms, and stairwells. These sensors turn on when someone enters the room and turn off a few minutes after they’ve left. To detect the person, the device uses infrared (heat and motion) and ultrasonic (sound) technology.
Timers are great for businesses that operate during standard hours. You can set your lighting to be on or off at specific times, ensuring your lights are never left on by mistake. Timers can be used for interior and exterior lighting, keeping your business well-lit and safe around the clock.
