To ensure malls always make the best possible impression. KNX provides seamless integration and lighting transitions with DALI systems via a DALI gateway which is compatible with many manufacturers’ LED lights and theatrical equipment.

  • Retail outlets

Retail stores require very specific control features and need easy-to-operate and flexible lighting control systems that can be adjusted to seasonal changes.

Such systems are also purpose-designed to dim large numbers of lights and will heighten any desired architectural lighting effect.

  • Public areas

Lighting Control solutions in larger or multi-storey shopping malls often utilize natural lighting levels to further cut energy costs. Such systems also serve as a single integrated pre-programmable platform via which to control air conditioning, escalators/lifts, security, irrigation and more. This gives building management staff far more flexibility in monitoring their system.

  • Back of house

As storage, utility and rest rooms are used intermittently; sensors are an excellent way of maximising lighting energy efficiencies and minimising electricity bills.
