Our Lighting Control Solutions
Lighting controls come in many forms and, if done correctly, can be customized to fit any organization’s needs, but not all lighting controls are made equal, and without a solid strategy, you may not reach your desired savings once implemented.
Many lighting control strategies layer multiple controls to achieve the desired energy savings and owner requirements. Action Services Group customizes your strategy and controls to address occupancy comfort, visual needs, and energy management.
Here are a few of the different types of lighting controls, from simple to advanced, that can be customized and layered to fit your organizational needs.
These simple but powerful sensors ensure that your lights are only on when someone is occupying a room. This lighting control can easily be added to an individual fixture or an entire room. They are perfect for areas that are not constantly in use; individual offices, storage areas, conference rooms, restrooms, and stairwells. They can even be used in parking lots, garages, and in wall packs!
There are a lot of building designs that are perfect for implementing daylight harvesting controls. These controls automatically adjust your lighting based on the available daylight coming through your windows. As the sun rises and sets, or cloud cover and inclement weather happen, these lighting controls maintain the predetermined light levels for the given space.
Astronomical Time Clock
Often used for safety reasons where the lighting must be on at specific times during the day and night. This lighting control is pre-programmed with specific light levels and based on the date and time of day. Think after-hours safety lighting or parking lot lighting automatically set to come on at dusk.
Trim and Task Tuning
These lighting controls offer a wide range of use. The controls set the maximum lighting level based on set requirements in a particular room or even zone. The task tuning then analyzes the needed light in each space and dims certain areas based on conditions. This is great for large areas that have multiple functions, like an open concept office that needs dimmed lighting over the area containing your computers.
Networked Lighting Controls
Networked lighting controls are a more advanced system that links multiple luminaries, spaces, and basic lighting controls together. These networked lighting controls combine your LED lights, controls, and data to create a more flexible system that can be controlled from a central location. These advanced systems often include things like blue tooth mesh and AI interfaces to improve your overall energy management and savings.
