The benefits of lighting control systems
Lighting control systems do more than illuminating homes, hotels, and offices. They can boost productivity, save money, lower carbon emissions, respond to occupants, complement design and enhance the usability of a building.
Ecological and cost – It goes without saying a building that is more environmentally efficient doesn’t just better the planet, it saves you money and, for commercial locations can improve CSR records to boot. Lighting uses 20% of the electricity generated in the United Kingdom. Non-domestic lighting is reported to be responsible for around 24 million tonnes of CO2 a year.
Having a better control of your lighting can reduce costs by 30-50% and significantly reduce carbon emissions at the same time, while new lighting technologies can reduce energy bills by as much as 80%.
Low maintenance – As technology and engineering has progressed significantly over the last few decades, many are surprised to find the kind of innovations lighting control systems now offer.
Tablet and smartphone apps are a more frequent sight, but lesser known innovations, such as wireless switches, are equally as beneficial. Designed to control appliances and lights without the need for complex cabling systems, these signal-based controls are revolutionising how people light their homes and businesses.
Design – The days of clunky design and bulky tech are over. Today, lighting control system panels are crafted to blend in as seamlessly as possible with the design schemes and layout of a building. These developments, paired with an ongoing commitment to craftsmanship, offer even greater options to users. From antique brass to sleek modern finishes and even transparent panels, lighting control systems can enhance the design of a room in more ways than light alone.
Security – Few people know that lighting control systems can be integrated into any existing domestic or commercial system, such as CCTV, security and even blinds.
‘Holiday modes’ allow lighting control systems to mimic the usual usage of light (and even blinds) in the home or office when it is unoccupied.
Better lighting – One of the most popular benefits of lighting control systems is probably the most obvious – the improved use of light throughout a home, business or leisure establishment.
Mood-appropriate lighting can be set depending on the time of day, or even year (ideal for those familiar with the lows of Seasonal Affective Disorder), social occasion or simply, the requirements of the occupant.
