Lighting has a considerable impact on our working and living spaces, either helping fashion environments that create the right mood or causing discomfort or disruption when we get it wrong.
Lighting management systems (or LMSs) help facilities management teams to ensure that the lighting environment is always optimised to the needs of occupants, and caters to their needs. Their advanced lighting control features improve the aesthetics and productivity in living and working spaces, creating a human centric lighting (HCL) environment which increases productivity even more and decreases stress levels for the inhabitants.
But LMSs also optimise another increasingly critical parameter of lighting performance — which is the consumption of electricity. Since lighting accounts for 45% of the annual electricity used in office buildings, this can mean saving up to 60% or more of your energy costs, contributing to numerous credit categories for LEED® certification. The application of several features and technologies contribute towards reducing consumption — such as dimming, motion sensing, daylight harvesting, ambient light sensing, and much more. Intelligent software helps generate a real-time view of lighting and power usage, and helps maximize energy efficiency by remotely adjusting shading, lighting, HVAC, and other equipment. Room lighting control allows a high degree of personalisation and customisations according to the applications — so we can create extraordinarily complicated lighting scenes, store them as presets and then change them with the touch of a single button.
