Adaptive, or multi-level, lighting controls maximize the efficiency, life span and amenity of LED lighting in indoor and outdoor applications, giving LED technology an advantage over other sources. LEDs’ tuning and dimming capabilities make them well suited for use with scheduling, daylight harvesting and occupancy controls. Wireless networked lighting control systems provide the greatest degrees of flexibility and control, sending and receiving signals from point to point. This connectivity allows facility managers to pre-program lighting communication points, make real-time adjustments, and receive maintenance alerts, all from a mobile device. This presentation will offer case study findings from indoor and outdoor networked LED lighting installations, including end-user feedback and energy savings data that demonstrates an up to 90% reduction in lighting energy use over incumbent systems, depending on application type and occupancy patterns.
