The Value of Smart Lighting Controls for Business

The Value of Smart Lighting Controls for Business

Controlling light in offices and large facilities can give you many benefits. Not too many years ago, you had few choices for lighting systems. Companies had to utilize skylights and choose between standard fluorescent or incandescent fixtures with simple switching controls. However, the 21st Century business has many more options including smart lighting controls. Let’s look at what this technology is and what it can do for your company.

What is Smart Light?

Instead of using standard switching circuits (like single pole, three-way, and four-way switches) Smart light is specifically designed to give you maximum lighting efficiency. It uses the most efficient form of lighting and can automatically turn lights on and off, dim the lights, or add supplemental light to just about any situation. Using sensor and computerized technology, your lighting controls can be programmed to do many things.

The Importance of Wireless Technology

One of the biggest problems with 20th Century lighting systems was the wired technology they used. For example, every kind of switch had to run to the light source. With today’s wireless technology, you only need to connect your lighting to the power source and a receiver, transmitter, or sensor in series with the light. This gives you the power to turn lights on and off, and dim them from anywhere, thanks to wireless systems.


Installing wireless lighting controls is easier than hard-wired systems. You have very few limits on where you can place controls and lights can be operated automatically. There’s no need to tear down walls or go through a lot of trouble to hide cables anymore.

Network Lighting

With smart systems, lighting can have its own network, and all the components may communicate with each other. Lighting professionals can design and install customized systems to give your company any kind of lighting that it needs.
