lighting control systemsBrief Introduction To Lighting Controls

A great lighting design means having an excellent controls design. When it comes to lighting, lighting control systems take on a crucial role. It allows users to automatically or manually switch the lights on or off and adjust the light output up or down with a dimmer.

This basic feature could be used to provide these advantages for the lighting owner. These include the flexibility to satisfy the user visual needs as well as pave the way for automation so energy costs can be reduced and sustainability can be improved. Over the past few years, lighting controls have changed significantly and included two more capabilities. They can now adjust the light source color and produce data by measuring and monitoring.

Benefit #1: Visual Needs

Lighting controls allow its users to adjust the intensity of at least one layer of lighting in a certain space. It means it could alter the space appearance and facilitate varying functions of the space. It can also alter the area’s mood and atmosphere, reduce glare, and boost user satisfaction by allowing users to use their lighting.

Benefit #2: Energy Management

By lowering the On time, zoning or intensity, lighting controls could reduce both the demand as well as the energy consumption. Based on the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory study, famous lighting control methods produce between 24 to 38% average lighting energy savings, which lowers building operating costs.

Due the strong energy savings, most of the state commercial building energy codes need a wide array of controls in new buildings. In an existing construction, the ability to control LED lighting results in an excellent pairing with controls, combining to lower energy costs.
