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.
Lighting control systems can be programmed to adjust lighting output based on factors, including:
- 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.
