Are you looking to cut expenses across the board, from the management of their factories and buildings to the efficiency of their manufacturing lines and the amount of energy and water they use? Almost everyone
Are you looking to cut expenses across the board, from the management of their factories and buildings to the efficiency of their manufacturing lines and the amount of energy and water they use? Almost everyone knows the cumulative benefits of leaner operations when given time. With several green projects planned for the future, business will also need to reduce their carbon emissions and waste of resources.
Specialised lighting solutions are the best options. This is because:
Energy-efficient lighting is the next logical step in building management in residential, commercial, and industrial settings. And LED illumination is gradually engulfing these as well.
- Energy Efficiency & Lifespan: LED lights use less power and last longer than incandescent and halogen bulbs. They may last up to ten years and use just 70% of the energy of traditional incandescent bulbs.
- Workplace and industrial facilities benefit significantly from these lights because of their high Colour Rendering Index (CRI), allowing them to display objects’ true colours.
- Regarding financial potential, CFL lights are LED’s closest rivals. They are also more energy-efficient and cost less per unit than the other more expensive options. On the other hand, LED lights have a far longer lifespan than CFL bulbs, which means their expected costs are lower over time. As a result, they have become the industry standard in intelligent lighting.
The Operation of Intelligent Lighting Systems
There are three main components to an LED luminaire: a light source, driver and heatsink. The heatsink is used to keep the working portions of the driver excellent. This means that the IoT can control and integrate these devices via wireless networks (IoT).
Smart LED lights can communicate with one other, providing user-friendly statistics and diagnostics. ii. Data-friendly interoperability To communicate with the intelligent controller or monitor, each light has a unique hardware address that it uses to transmit data.
The third option is to add a motion sensor to an existing light fixture, which has become a common practice in the construction industry. These are known as “occupancy sensors,” used to monitor human activity in space.
How does this benefit the end-users in the end?
Specialised lighting solutions save businesses money in the form of lower utility bills.
- End-users can change their energy use in real-time because of the abundance of data accessible. Motion sensor lights can be turned off or dimmed in vacant areas if there are fewer personnel in the workplace. The intensity of the light may be adjusted if there is an external change in natural light from outside the windows, such as clouds or the sun’s angle. Compared to typical lighting methods, this eco-friendly approach can save as much as 30% on power usage.
- Predictive Maintenance: Preventative maintenance may increase the life of your bright light fixtures. You can tell when a light fixture is about to fail based on the information that has already been provided. When a light fails, it can impact efficiency and light output statistics. As a result, you may correct issues before they become too expensive to fix. It is also possible to combine intelligent lighting systems with the building’s HVAC and fire alarm systems, making it easier to keep track of the whole structure.
- The intelligent controller may schedule when and how many lights should be switched on automated lighting systems based on working hours. The illumination in your workplace may be adjusted to match the hours of operation, saving you money on electricity.
- In addition, wireless LED lights may be activated via geofencing, where an administrator’s smartphone position triggers the lights to switch on or off. Just as they get within a mile of the workplace, building management or front desk administrator might turn on the business’s lighting and cooling systems.
