Is an inefficient lighting system driving up your energy costs? If you are still using old-fashioned, individual light switches and controls in your commercial building, the answer is yes! Increasing numbers of commercial building owners are taking charge of their utility costs by installing modern lighting control solutions in their facilities. These solutions centralize control of all the lighting systems in a building, using an automated control system that can turn off lights in unused areas of the facility. Since 30% to 40% of a typical commercial building is unoccupied at any given time, switching to one of these modern South Florida commercial lighting systems can make a significant difference in your monthly operating costs.
Advanced Control Corporation can install a commercial lighting system that will increase your building’s energy efficiency, lower your operating costs, and decrease your environmental footprint. Commercial buildings of all types can benefit from one of these lighting solutions, since they can be incorporated as part of a new construction project or retrofitted to a facility’s existing lighting circuits. A vast range of control is available, from a basic control system for lighting and equipment switching, ideal for use in facilities where time-of-day control is managed from a time clock or centralized building management system, to a fully automatic lighting control that encompasses all of your facility’s lighting circuits.
Advanced Control ‘s South Florida commercial lighting systems employ time and zone controls that turn off lights when the building is empty, relying on occupancy sensors to indicate whether people are present and switching the lights on or off accordingly. Your commercial lighting solution will give you command of scheduling, occupancy, and dimming controls over all the lighting systems in your buildings. Tenant override technology, a smartphone based override module that grants tenants the capability to override HVAC, lighting, and temperature controls, can be included as part of your customized lighting solution. Lighting control can be applied to outdoor parking lots, garages, walkways, and signs, as well as indoor areas such as offices, cubicles, cafeterias, and storage areas.
Advanced Control’s lighting control systems are available as networked or stand-alone solutions, and are appropriate for facilities of every size. You can easily manage even the largest lighting systems with optional Fast Ethernet-based control that harnesses the openness of your building’s existing Ethernet backbone to share data between controllers at blistering speeds. Enhanced options are available on larger networked lighting systems, such as an email alarm notification service that automatically notifies assigned users of an alarm condition through their computer email program, pager or cell phone, and an integral web server that provides ready access to panel status and configuration screens. Our larger systems seamlessly coordinate with Powerlink network area controllers (NACs) to provide a host of special control capabilities, such as auto load shed/restore, stepped dimming, demand control, and integration with other equipment.
Stand-alone lighting solutions from Advanced Control use motion sensors and light level sensors to provide an affordable physical security defense capable of protecting your assets. When daylight begins to fade, light level sensors turn on to light individual areas, such as entranceways, chasing off most unsavory intruders. Motion sensors detect when an object or individual has entered an area, illuminating the area to ward off unwelcome visitors.
