                    Stand alone lighting control

                     

                     

                     

                    Value proposition

                    Main Drivers
                    • Make savings controlling lighting consumption in the most simple way!

                    Solution in brief 
                    • A simple yet efficient solution to optimise the lighting in buildings and offices using stand-alone electronics that provide simple automatisms based on three main parameters, alone or combined:
                      - time > timers devices
                      - intensity > dusks 
                      - presence > movement detection

                    Value proposition
                    • Compared to a traditional manual switch , here are typical energy savings a customer can achieved:
                      - Timer: potential savings up to 50% (stair-case)
                      - Dusks: savings can reach 50% (especially if combined with timer) 
                      - Presence detectors: savings can reach 90% (outdoor application)

                    Differentiation factors
                    • For advanced indoor presence detectors - office PIR and/or building automation PIR -, heating/ventilation can be adjusted accordingly.
                    • For outdoor pressences detectors, outdoor lighting is turned on only when needed: upon the detection of movement but also only when the ambient light level is below a preset level. A light sensor in the PIR prevents the light from turning on if the daylight level is high enough.
                     

                    Main Energy Efficiency characteristics


                    Timer
                    • Placed between a light switch and the lighting device, the timer turns off the light automatically after a preset time.
                    • A socket outlet is connected to a timer (mechanically like a toggle switch) and is activated for a preset time only after the timer is pushed. Devices are no longer forgotten to be turned off.

                    Dusk
                    • A simple Dusk switch is inserted in the lighting circuit. For the advanced application with a timer, the timer is also inserted in the circuit.

                    Movement detection (PIR)
                    • Indoor PIR: A standard switch is replaced by a movement detector; lighting is turned on/off automatically upon detection of movement . For advanced PIR (office PIR and/or building automation PIR), heating/ventilation can be adjusted accordingly.
                    • Outdoor PIR: Outdoor lighting is turned on only when needed: upon the detection of movement but also only when the ambient light level is below a preset level. A light sensor in the PIR prevents the light from turning on if the daylight level is high enough.
