As an informed commercial building owner, you are aware that a building light control system is the first step in improving the energy efficiency of your facility. Building light control systems are customizable, offering a plethora of components and capabilities that can be combined to create different degrees of control. While this flexibility allows for the creation of lighting control systems that are specifically crafted to meet a facility’s needs, it also means that there are many systems on the market that do not offer complete and total functionality. When choosing a building light control system in Palm Beach for your commercial building, make sure you select a system that takes into consideration a number of factors, including the occupancy status of your building spaces, your tenants’ needs, the security status of your building, and the degree of control you are seeking.
Lighting control can be applied to indoor areas such as offices, cubicles, cafeterias, and storage areas as well as outdoor parking lots, garages, walkways, and signs. There is a vast range of lighting control available, starting with basic lighting control systems for lighting and equipment switching that are ideal for use in facilities where time-of-day control is managed from a time clock. For the greatest degree of control, you can choose to install a fully automatic lighting control system that encompasses all of your facility’s lighting circuits, using a building automation system to integrate them as a part of a centralized building management system.
Since a significant percentage of the energy consumed by commercial buildings is used to provide lighting in unoccupied areas, the light control system you choose should include time and zone controls, allowing you to turn lights off according to scheduled occupancy times. To address intermittently empty spaces, your lighting control system can employ motion sensors and other occupancy sensors, relying on them to indicate whether people are present and switching the lights on or off accordingly. Your customized lighting solution can include tenant override technology, a smartphone based override module that will allow your tenants to override HVAC, lighting, and temperature controls.The best building lighting control solutions give you command of scheduling, occupancy, and dimming controls over all the lighting systems in your building.
You can choose to implement a networked or stand-alone solution. Networked solutions are available that employ Fast Ethernet-based controls, ideal for larger commercial and industrial buildings; available enhanced options for these larger systems include integral web servers that provide ready access to panel status and configuration screens, and automated alarm notification services. Stand-alone lighting solutions use motion sensors and light level sensors to provide an affordable physical security defense capable of protecting your assets. When daylight fades, 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.
