Lighting Control Systems
Lighting Control Systems
Lighting control systems generally refer to an intelligent network-based solution that incorporates communication between various system inputs and outputs. A true intelligent lighting control system will enable integration between lighting and other systems.
An intelligent lighting control system should be transparent and simple to operate. It will be capable of integrating with other building systems and allow for the system to be managed from a central location.
A centralised lighting control system has all lighting circuits in a space run to a central location. Devices such as touchscreens can be used to control centralised lighting.
Wireless lighting control systems consist of controllable dimmers and remote control light switches. This system is able to integrate mobile devices and some programming capabilities of a centralised system while communicating wirelessly to the processor.
Hybrid lighting control systems are a blend of centralised and wireless systems. Both wireless and wired devices are integrated into a system, allowing the two to communicate effortlessly.
Intelligent Lighting Systems
Intelligent lighting systems, or automated lighting systems, are lighting with automated or mechanical capabilities beyond those of traditional, stationary lighting. Kerfoot delivers intelligence to a range of premises including industrial, commercial and retail. This allows maximum lighting, management and energy efficiency, as well as increased security.
Intelligent lighting systems integrate full lighting controls using KNX and DALI protocols. The system uses absence / presence-detecting technology and daylight harvesting that allows on-demand, adaptive lighting. This ensures accurate lighting control and reduces energy consumption.
Lighting management systems are a part of the C-BUS control and management system, which controls the premise automation system.
The systems that Kerfoot supports are:
- Programmable 240V Sensors
Some of the benefits of employing intelligent lighting systems are:
- Increase in lighting efficiency
- Daylight harvesting
- Simplicity of use
- Absence / presence detector technology
- Increased employee comfort by providing the correct lighting levels
- Increased longevity of light fittings
- Flexibility in functionality
- Capable of interfacing with other systems such as:
- Digital layouts of your floor plan
- Centralised control of lighting
- Many variations of switches, sensors and touchscreens available to suit any architectural requirements
What does Kerfoot offer?
We supply a variety of light fixtures to accommodate your needs. We provide the accompanying control solutions, which range from keypads and touchscreens, to sensors and sophisticated systems that are capable of controlling all lights in a defined space. We offer services and support you from start to finish, from consultation and design to installation and management.
For decades, Kerfoot has worked closely with companies, business owners, engineers, architects and designers to design and produce lighting systems that are effective. In partnership with industry-leading providers, we employ the latest technology, highest quality components, and cost-effective approaches.
We understand that your business has its own unique requirements. That’s why we offer customisation to fit your lighting needs. Our experts will closely work with you to identify the exact system capabilities you require, and customise a system that meets those needs.
