Best lighting control strategies
Lighting control Strategies- Offer better control and energy savings

Today’s lighting systems are smart and controllable. Lighting control devices manage and automate lighting as per the user’s needs. Increasing demands for energy savings and versatility to support visual needs have given lighting control greater importance. The lighting control system utilizes distinct control strategies to satisfy the energy codes and standards, which provides the minimum acceptable energy usage for the buildings. Getting control over the fixtures in a facility using sensors, schedules, and dimmers dramatically save on maintenance costs and energy consumption.

Smart Sensors: Applications, Benefits, and Working

It’s a sensor-driven era. Smart sensors do enhance the capacity to observe and report on the world around us. They perform in almost all sectors to make human life easy and much better. Adjusting lights to the tune of moods, turning on devices including water heaters, ensuring security, tracking devices, and many more are just a few to name so. On a bigger scale, sensors enable greater visibility into business processes and workflows, identify employee work patterns, and determine environmental conditions of facilities. Thus, sensors also allow enterprise management to monitor, control, and improve operational efficiency.

Future of lighting is human-centric
Human-centric Lighting is the Future

It isn’t a surprise if a luminaire glows only to illuminate a space. But it is a surprise if it light-up a space to make occupants feel comfortable, be it for working, reading, or sleeping. Human-centric lighting (HCL) is the future of lighting and is surprisingly transforming the way light behaves to boost people’s circadian rhythms. Unlike primitive lighting systems, HCL employs tunable bulbs, controllers, drivers, gateways, and app interfaces.
