Both natural and artificial light have a significant influence on the well-being of humans.
Suitable lighting can have a positive effect on consumption behaviour and work performance.
Lighting is therefore becoming increasingly important as a building automation parameter.
In addition to the right choice of lamps and fittings, another important aspect is the control
of different lighting scenarios.
Lighting control = energy saving
Without a lighting controller, the lighting in a commercially used building, e.g. an office building or a school, is switched on in the morning and switched off in the evening. Since artificial light is used throughout the day, 100 % of the energy costs result here. The following lighting strategies make extensive energy savings possible with the employment of automated lighting:
- A Central switching off
- B Time-dependent lighting
- C Daylight-dependent lighting (daylight-dependent light control/constant light regulation)
- D Presence-oriented lighting
- E Combination of all the above
By the use of suitable light control strategies, integrated into an integral building automation, significant energy savings can be achieved while at the same time increasing comfort and well-being inside the building. The energy saving can be maximised by the combination of different strategies.
