WHY LIGHTING CONTROL?
Lighting is the largest single consumer of electric power in a typical building, often exceeding 30% of the total energy cost. The main function of an intelligent lighting control system is to provide light where and when it's needed and to reduce lighting in unoccupied areas.
By controlling lights during non-occupancy periods, energy costs associated with lighting can often be reduced by over 50%. That's why lighting control is so important. In addition, lighting control helps defer replacement costs of lamps and ballasts by reducing the number of annual burn hours.
Many building codes now require the use of lighting controls to reduce energy consumption. Meeting such requirements, while still creating a comfortable and productive workspace, often requires an intelligent lighting control system.
