    A private school in Atlanta, Georgia uses Wavelinx Lite from Cooper Lighting Solutions to give a multistory parking garage a cost-efficient safety makeover

     

    The Lovett School, founded in 1926 by innovative educator Eva Edwards Lovett, sits on 40 hectares of forested and riverfront land in Atlanta, GA. With 1,600 students, and full educational and extracurricular programming, the school’s parking garage is in heavy use.

     

    The school wanted to upgrade their parking garage, maximizing the sense of security onsite, while lowering the impact the parking garage lighting had on neighbors – without increasing their electricity bill. Being free of cybersecurity concerns was also a priority.

     

    For this, a networked motion sensor system that offered full flexibility on lighting levels and duration was an ideal solution.

    They opted to install Cooper Lighting Solutions Top Tier and Galleon luminaires with WaveLinx Lite motion sensors. This allowed them to group luminaires together and raise lighting levels for a whole area, eliminating scattered dark areas.

     

    “The WaveLinx Lite system has allowed us to control the site lighting to meet the needs of the school. The grouping feature allows us to adjust lights that directly impact neighboring homes while still maintaining ideal light levels throughout the structure to maintain safety.” said Brian Holtzapfel, Director of Plant Operations, The Lovett School.

    The entire system was operational out-of-the-box, without any programming required."

    Cooper Lighting Solutions’ WaveLinx Lite offers the ability to customize installations with a secure downloadable mobile application targeted at office, education, and parking garage applications. So, after installation, the team only had to download the Wavelinx Lite app to create groups, explore additional features, and have complete oversight of the entire project.

     

    The whole system was operational out-of-the-box, without any programming required. Thanks to its simple interface, ability to expand the system in the future , and a clear return on investment, the operations team at The Lovett School is confident WaveLinx Lite was the right choice for them.
