Today, light management – also known as smart lighting – provides a growing list of advantages. Further energy savings. Adjustable light levels and selectable ambient color. Easier use with automation. Even constant lumen levels long term.
LEDs in light management
As powerful energy-savers with special characteristics, LEDs are key to light management applications. Did you know that LEDs actually extend their lifetime when frequently switched on and off? Plus they generate high energy savings when dimmed and are easily connected to intelligent control lighting systems.
Implementing smart lighting
Typically, light management features are integrated into decentralized or centralized control systems. Choosing the latter requires a wired or wireless communication system. Microcontrollers and sensors are also essential to light management because they enable:
- Connectivity to bus systems such as
- DALI, DMX, KNX, etc.
- Connectivity to sensors
- Programming of intelligent light features tailored to your requirements
