Lighting Controls


Using a lighting control system can improve the quality of illumination as well as reduce energy consumption.  Control systems allow the use of light in the required place, at the right time and in the optimum quantity.

Flexibility is important when planning new lighting. In many healthcare buildings for example , the lighting requirement changes several times during the course of a day.

An intelligent and easy to manage installation with pre-programmed lighting levels, present scenarios or occupancy detection is very beneficial. It allows the lighting system to respond to the uses of the space and the needs of the user. This enables illumination in these types of premises to be utilised to the full.

A daylight linked control system can enable artificial light to complement daylight. On a dull day artificial light can illuminate a space that predominantly uses daylight when it does not penetrate.

Designplan can supply an energy efficient solution for any application; including dimming, presence-detection switches and daylight sensors. These additions can reduce costs by as much as 70% and avoid unnecessary energy being used.
