Lighting control systems
Lighting control systems allow a range of lighting system inputs and outputs to be controlled from a central device. This enables the provision of the optimum level of lighting at the place and time it is needed.
- Time of day.
- Sunrise and sunset.
- Occupancy levels.
- Daylight levels.
- Combination of factors.
The main advantage of installing a lighting control system is that it enables the control of single or multiple lights from a single device, rather than having to be manually or locally controlled. This enables complex pre-sets to be designed depending on the conditions required, and helps to maximise the energy savings that can be made.
