Have you ever wandered through a city at night and noticed entire office floors where the lights are burning brightly, but there’s no one there? Or been inside a building during the day and wondered why every single light is on, yet the space is filled with sunlight? It’s not a small problem. Wasted energy is hugely expensive for homes, businesses, governments, and the planet. And yet the solution is remarkably simple.
A sensor of improvement
Using sensors and switches to manage lighting control is not new. The energy savings this creates are already enforced through building codes and incentivised through government or utility company rebates.
What is new is that Signify has made the entire process simpler and more convenient by integrating sensors right into lighting fixtures. Both lighting and sensors are installed in one go, reducing time and costs. More importantly, this enables the sensor to measure lighting in the precise area illuminated by that fixture, providing far more granular wireless control over individual luminaires and groups.
