A good lighting design will also incorporate a lighting control system. Controls play a critical role within a building infrastructure to improve efficiency and reduce energy consumption.
A well-designed system will enable end users to either manually or automatically turn the lights ON and OFF using a switch and/or adjust light output up and down using a dimmer. Lighting levels can also be monitored and altered with the use of a photocell which automatically dims and maintains light levels according to ambient lux levels. In addition, presence detectors can be installed to ensure the building operates at the optimum energy efficiency when it is unoccupied.
Ensuring the ambient lighting needs of an employee are met by adjusting the intensity of one or more layers of lighting in a space; the lighting control system can:
• Change space appearance
• Facilitate different functions of the space
• Alter atmosphere and mood
• Reduce glare
• Provide the end user the ability to manage the lighting set up
