Connected technologies opening up opportunities for contractors says Philips Lighting
New wireless connected lighting technologies are anticipated to transform thousands of car parking garages in cities, shopping centres, apartment buildings, hotels and transport hubs across the country, many of which currently utilise conventional
With the introduction of point-to-point wirelessly controlled LED lighting solutions from manufacturers including Philips, car park owners, operators and contactors now have a viable solution in comparison to fixed output fluorescent battens, that ticks the boxes – lighting plan flexibility, light source efficiency, switch and light control possibilities, ease of installation and commissioning.
Designed for efficiency and total control
There are two key design aspects that differentiate the latest batten lighting options for car park lighting from common conventional car park lighting; luminaires are designed with inbuilt sensors for occupancy and daylight detection and wireless capabilities for additional functionality and controllability*
With wireless capabilities built into individual luminaires, car parking spaces can be easily divided into specified ‘zones of light’ by carefully positioning presence detectors that are wirelessly linked to the luminaires near by so that lighting is effectively ‘one step ahead’ of pedestrian and vehicle access.
As an example, the Philips GreenPerform batten with G2 Actilume Wireless, utilises the ZigBee wireless communication protocol, which means up to 50 adjacent luminaires can be wirelessly programmed into one zone. It is important however to remember that the size, shape and location of zones should be designed to match the occupation and routing density of people and cars allowing optimum balancing of comfort and safety with energy savings.
