Light Management System

Energy-efficient lighting management systems ensure there is just the right amount of light when and where you need it. They are reliable and easy to use, provide safety and security, reduce expenses and are code compliant, sustainable and environmentally friendly.

Smart Lighting System suitable for Every Space

Passages

The passages make for the prime areas in your commercial or private space. It is the path through which everyone passes and where impressions are made. Our equipments include motion sensors along with automated lighting both of which can be predetermined and set accordingly.

Wardrobes

Wardrobes, although basic are where your day begins from. The setting of these personal spaces sets your tone and mood for the remainder of the day. We equip these with special lights which is not only automated but also focused in order to show and offer you exactly what you might need.

Staircase

Staircases, although built for convenience are a good opportunity to elevate in style. We incorporate motion sensors, lighting and other functionalities here. All of these are automated so you need not worry about hunting for switches in the dark any longer.

Energy efficiency is the need of the hour and every construction shares a common responsibility of conserving energy and thereby the environment. We provide products and services that abide to this requirement by providing solutions that make buildings more energy efficient and reduce energy wastage. The benefits of Lighting Management Systems include:

Energy Savings

LMS systems can result in energy savings of more than 30% reducing building operating expenses by 10% or more.

Economic Savings

Reduced lighting and energy usage results in reduced operating costs hence saving money.

Code Compliance

This system adheres to the European standard 15193 which is a major standard for defining energy efficient lighting systems used in building codes across the world.

Sustainable Building Practice

Lighting Management can be used in green building projects as energy-efficient solutions that can also enhance the comfort of the occupants.

Light Management Strategies refer to the basic method that will be used to control lighting systems. This will include automatic operation of the lighting, taking into account the needs of the space’s occupants.

Occupancy based control
1. Occupancy-based control

Lighting is switched on and off in response to the occupancy of a particular area. It is not dependent on time intervals or scheduled periods but responds to the individual usage of a controlled area.

Vacancy based control
2. Vacancy-based control

Lighting is switched on and off in response to an area becoming vacant. It is not dependent on time intervals or scheduled periods but responds to the individual usage of a controlled area.

3. Scheduled control

Lighting is managed according to time schedules based on when buildings are occupied and closed.

4. Dimming control

Lighting levels are adjusted to achieve the required lighting effects or appropriate light levels for the various activities of the occupants.

5. Light level control

This strategy involves adjusting the light output level in a number of ways to achieve specific objectives. The main types of light level control include:

    Day lighting control system
  1. Daylighting (daylighting setpoint)
    In areas inside buildings that receive abundant natural light, this strategy uses the light to supplement and replace the use of artificial light.
  2. Tuning (lighting profile)
    This approach uses the adjustment of lighting levels to achieve appropriate light levels for the various activities of the occupants. For instance, an individual engaged in drawing or reading will require a higher light level than someone who is shelving merchandise.
  3. Lumen maintenance
    This strategy focuses on maintaining an even level of illumination throughout the lifespan of the lighting systems lamps. To do so, it relies on reducing initial light levels at the outset of the lifespan, and gradually increasing light levels as lamps age.

Lighting management technologies refer to the actual device that will be used to implement a specific strategy and the methods which device will use to operate.

1. Occupancy sensors

Occupancy sensors use a variety of technologies to detect occupants and send appropriate signals to area lightings.

  1. PIR technology
    Passive infrared technology detects occupancy by reacting to infrared energy sources - such as the human body - in motion. By identifying the difference between such energy sources and the background area, the sensor can locate occupants and signal lights to turn on. To operate effectively, PIR sensors require a direct line-of-sight view that encompasses the coverage area.
  2. Ultrasonic technology
    This type of occupancy sensor utilizes Doppler signalling to detect occupants. The sensor emits ultrasonic sound waves that bounce off objects in the area covered and then measures the amount of time it takes for the wave to return. When there is movement in the areas these sound waves will return to the sensor’s receiver at different frequencies resulting in occupancy detection. This technology is ideal for applications where the sensor would not have line-of-sight views of occupants or where activity levels may be low.
  3. Dual technology
    Occupancy sensors that employ multiple sensing technologies are usually referred to as ‘dual technology’ or hybrid devices. They generally use PIR and ultrasonic technologies, where lighting is turned on when both technologies detect occupancy, and remains on as long as at least one of the sensing technologies continues detecting occupancy.
  4. Daylighting setpoint
    The light levels rise above a pre-set level. This setting is adjustable and can be overridden. It is available in all our ceiling sensors. This function is activated by default.
2. Time base switching

These mechanical or electronic devices turn lights on or off after a specified interval. The interval can be varied to meet the needs of the occupant, usually from brief periods of five minutes up to intervals as long as 12 hours.
These switches can often replace conventional wall switches without the need for any additional wiring.
Practical uses for time base switches are areas that are used frequently but only for short periods of time, such as utility or control rooms, storage areas and library book stacks.

3. Dimming controls

For personal control of work areas, users can choose remove controls that switch lighting on, off, or dim light levels.
These types of control are particularly useful for task tuning, since the individual user can match their required light level to their specific work tasks.

We use the most appropriate products for every lighting management project.

1. Switch Sensors - A simple economical solution

This solution is ideal for single or multiple areas and includes switch sensors that work on 100-240 Vac. These switch sensors are available in occupancy mode and vacancy mode and use PIR, ultrasonic or dual technologies. Additionally these also have the daylighting setpoint feature which keeps the lighting OFF when the natural light level rises above the preset level, a feature which is adjustable.

2. BUS | SCS Systems - complete solution for lighting management

This solution can manage a floor or a whole building. Equipment and lighting features managed by actuators or dimmers communicate by means of BUS. The installation can be designed, monitored and supervised on a PC using our software suite.
Our BUS/SCS system is compatible with all types of lighting features, including Dali.
