The high toll our energy usage is taking on the environment has become a matter of widespread concern in recent years, leaving commercial building owners searching for ways to make their facilities more energy-efficient. Since lighting costs represent 40% of the average commercial building’s electric bill, the installation of a building illumination control system often serves as the important first step in improving the energy efficiency of these structures. In fact, when properly installed and effectively utilized, a building illumination control system can produce a 25% reduction in energy usage while providing a number of other valuable benefits. Advanced Control Corporation can install a building illumination control system in your South Florida commercial building that will deliver improved energy-efficiency, lowered cooling costs, and increased physical security while enhancing your facility’s tenant appeal.
Advanced Control can customize a lighting control installation to fit any size or type of facility, from small building solutions to large, multi-building facilities. Our wide variety of control options range 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 illumination control system that encompasses all the lighting circuits in your facility. Whether you are incorporating illumination control as part of your new construction project or retrofitting to mesh with your facility’s existing lighting circuits, Advanced Control Corporation’s building illumination control systems are certain to enhance the performance of any facility.
Your building illumination control system can encompass outdoor areas such as parking lots, garages, walkways, and signs, as well as indoor offices, cubicles, cafeterias, and storage areas. The indoor lighting control systems Advanced Control installs employ time and zone controls to turn off lights in building areas that are empty, relying on occupancy sensors to indicate whether people are present. Customized solutions can include scheduling, occupancy, and dimming controls as well as tenant override technology that gives tenants the capability to override HVAC, lighting, and temperature controls via their smartphones.
If you are looking for an affordable physical security defense to protect your assets, Advanced Control’s stand-alone lighting control installation is the ideal solution. Light level sensors turn on lights when daylight begins to dim, illuminating chosen areas such as entryways to dissuade unsavory intruders. Motion sensors and light level sensors use smart technology to detect when an individual or object has entered an area, triggering lights to illuminate the area and chase off unwelcome visitors. With its low installation price and minimal operational costs, this commercial building lighting installation option is an extremely popular loss prevention measure for building owners on a budget.
For larger commercial and industrial buildings that need a fully automatic lighting control installation, Advanced Control offers optional Fast Ethernet-based lighting control that shares data between controllers at lightning-fast speeds, making it ideal for applications where a photo sensor or switch is used to control branch breakers located in several different panels scattered throughout the facility. A number of enhanced options are available including an integral web server to provide ready access to panel status and configuration screens. For those building owners that prefer to keep a close eye on their property, Advanced Control can set up an alarm notification service that will instantly notify you of any alarm condition via an automated message on your cell phone, pager, or email.
