Signify replaced DHL’s traditional fluorescent T5 lamps with nearly 800 Day-Brite CFI FBY energy-efficient LED high-bay luminaires. Sensors embedded in the fixtures can help detect available daylight or the lack of presence or motion in an area of the facility, and automatically reduce the amount of electrical light needed, further conserving energy.
DHL’s warehouse managers can now wirelessly control their site’s fixtures with Interact’s cloud-based software. For instance, they created 75 different groups of luminaires throughout the facility and can customize the light levels in each of these zones. They can tailor settings according to the needs of different customer programs and deliver the ideal light to support employees’ tasks across the site.
“This pilot has quickly delivered on a number of fronts,” continued McNutt. “The building is consuming roughly 53% less energy than it did prior to the connected LED lighting system installation – exceeding our goal of saving one million kilowatt hours annually. We have also had tremendous feedback from our employees on having lighting that is tailored to their work environment.”
