Indoor commercial lighting control
Brilliant on the inside
Today, fitting a commercial building with an indoor lighting control system benefits building owners and occupants along with facility management companies. For instance, thanks to intelligent indoor lighting control light levels can be individually adapted to meet occupants’ needs. A lighting control system can also help save energy by automatically switching off the lights when no one is present. Further, a smart lighting system recognizes when a lamp is about to fail and directly notifies the building management system (BMS). This eliminates the need for random lamp checks, which reduces manpower and costs.

Smart sensors for enhanced lighting control
Equipped with smart sensors that collect data from the environment, today’s lighting control systems can do more than just illuminate a space. Their new capabilities include analyzing room occupancy to maximize office space utilization and measuring air quality. In the future, sensors will be capable of even more. That’s why your indoor commercial lighting control designs must be future-proof.
Highlighting the challenges
In the exciting field of indoor commercial lighting control, designers must overcome a number of challenges. The most significant ones are:
- The cost and complexity of today’s solutions
- Uncertainty of customers’ willingness to pay for Internet of Things in lighting
- Securing the flow of data and keeping hackers away
Thankfully, you can easily overcome these barriers by sourcing the right semiconductor solutions and having the right partner by your side.
