If they’re distributed throughout an indoor space, occupancy sensors can give facility managers detailed information on activity patterns over time. Lighting management software can store this information, and offer tools to analyze and report on trends and tendencies. With system-wide lightpoint control, managers can fine-tune dimming schedules, dropping light levels to the minimum required for safety and basic visibility in areas when they’re not being used, and boosting light to the recommended levels when they are.
Highly energy-efficient LED lighting and intelligent, targeted delivery of lighting based on occupancy patterns can save businesses an astonishing 80% or more on energy consumption over conventional lighting systems with basic controls. This helps business achieve aggressive green building goals, including certifications that can net businesses lower energy costs, tax breaks, and other advantages while enhancing the building’s brand and total value.
