Lighting Controls

Even if your lighting system is up to date, lighting controls can further increase efficiency by making sure your lighting is being used effectively. There are many types of lighting controls, matching your system with the correct one can increase efficiency by up to 60%. Some controls include:

  1. Occupancy Sensors: Controlling light systems using sound, motion and heat sensors, they are most applicable for in areas with sporadic use (restrooms) and can result in 35-45% savings
  2. Dimmers: Dimmers allow adjustment to lighting levels, ranging from very bright to near dark. Perfect for all indoor applications, dimmers can are up to 20% more efficient than the standard toggle switch
  3. Photo Sensors: Photo Sensors make use of daylight to control lighting (daylight harvesting), allowing natural lighting to take up as much of the lighting load as possible. Photo sensors are most effective in on/off applications for outdoor lighting and can save up to 60% in energy use
