Light Control Is a Key Step for Energy Saving

Autor: Eliška ze Spectoda, 27. 6. 2023

Efficient use of light is a significant factor in reducing energy waste. With modern systems such as Spectoda, we have new ways to save energy with lighting control. This is thanks to automation, intensity control or time scheduling.

Optimisation through Sensors

Smart lighting control systems like Spectoda can save energy by using various sensors.

For example one that detects human movement and only activates lighting when necessary. This effectively eliminates unnecessary lighting of empty spaces. The lights can also react to the presence or absence of people in the room. It will switch on and off depending on whether the room is occupied or not.

Sensors can also be used to measure the intensity of natural lighting in a given space. Based on this information, the system adjusts the light intensity to match the current needs. If there is sufficient daylight, the system automatically reduces the intensity of the lights or switches them off completely. 

This automation minimises energy loss caused by lighting in unused areas.

Purposeful Lighting and Intensity Control

The Spectoda system allows you to control the lights individually and in groups, so you can target lighting only where it is needed. For example, in a factory you don't needlessly shine over machines that people are not working with, and similarly in offices you can adjust the lighting to the areas and desks that are currently being used.

The ability to control the lights separately and in segments also allows you to adjust the brightness of the lights according to specific requirements of different types of jobs. This ensures ideal comfort for employees and reduces energy waste in the long term.

At the same time, the system simply adapts the lights to the new conditions or switches them off/on all at once.

Time Management and Planning

You can define the time intervals when the lights are to be switched on or off. For example, in the evening when you are getting ready to leave, you can set the lights to automatically switch off after a certain time since you last moved. This way, automation prevents energy from being wasted if you just forget to turn the lights off manually.

Efficient light control is essential for energy efficiency and sustainability. Investing in such systems not only brings energy savings, but also increases the comfort and well-being of workers.
