Instead of just sitting back and telling you how awesome smart lighting is, we are going to actually take you on a little tour and show you first hand. No, no – you can stay in your seat for this one. This tour is going to be all digital as we take a look at how other businesses are killing it with their smart lighting. Let’s go!
Depending on your business, your lighting needs can greatly vary. For Madison College, there was a whole campus full of buildings to worry about! That’s a lot of lights to go around turning on and off and on and off every day. Not to mention their utility bill!
The good news? With a Lutron/Vive solution, the college saved energy, improve their lighting, and enhanced the overall learning environment. Classrooms got wireless occupancy sensors. Vive wireless hubs helped network parts of the campus together – streamlining controls and reducing energy costs. And if the controls worked for a business the size of a college, you know it is scalable enough to handle everything your business can throw at it!
Lighting isn’t just a human need --just look at what the Vivarium at the Princeton Neuroscience Institute was able to do with its Lutron Quantum total light management solution.
The Institute houses animals for its massive research operation, both of which have very specific – and sensitive – light requirements. Lutron’s solution is helping protect animal welfare in this case, while successfully meeting the needs of the Institute.
Smart lighting isn’t limited to just indoor applications. Smart lighting can be used for outdoor areas as well, like what the City of Amsterdam is using for one area in the city.
What did the city decide to go with while renovating the area? 144 LED street lights – each with individual IP addresses – that can be set for different events, the weather, or put in a dimming, energy saving mode.
But despite how the adage goes, it doesn’t take a village to set up smart lights. All it takes is a quick phone call to yours truly! We’re always here to help you further integrate smart lighting into your business plans, no matter how big or small your custom integration project is.
If these impressive lighting solutions haven’t convinced you how your business could benefit, then well, we saved the best example for last.
Say hello to the luxury yacht, Lady Lola. With Vantage on the job, an InFusion control platform helped unite all of the onboard lighting, blinds, curtains, and sheers. These can be controlled from multiple locations on the ship, as well as through iPads.
Phew! What a whirlwind of examples, huh? Yachts, colleges, municipals, it really seems that a lot of different types of businesses are starting to catch on to how great of an investment smart lighting is.
We’re eager to agree – and we are sure you are eager to get started on your own smart lighting project! Give us a call today, and we’ll gladly talk to you about all the ways that smart lighting can improve your business.
