The connected luminaires include IoT sensors that provide easy access to data, energy savings, sustainability, and personal comfort. Each luminaire can be uniquely identified by an IP address, allowing them to be individually monitored and controlled, with data managed via the centrally hosted Interact Office software dashboard.
“We wanted a wireless solution, which we saw as advantageous in changing lighting controls and lighting strategies, with minimal disruption to the occupants and the daily activities. This was in the interest of improving patient wellbeing.”
The use of sensors coupled with Casambi allowed to adjust different lighting requirements of users and spaces – leading to a 36% saving as compared to a conventional lighitng system without automation. The low cost of wiring and the system itself makes it very attractive at a ROI of less than 2 years.
Interact lighting – Connected Lighting Case Study, with this strategic objective in mind, the EDEKA construction department has paid particular attention to its ultramodern flagship store in Gaimersheim – with an imposing glass facade, varied shop architecture and wide ranging appeal.
“The creative process began by making one important decision: the use of a single color, light blue, to create a homogeneous background that gives importance to the content and not to the container” said architect Massimo Adario.
“…Casambi, as a truly wireless lighting control solution, is the only way to go, when a 500-year-old building has to be respected but updated to be functional.”
“And by getting connected, it becomes possible to expand beyond a single application – lighting control – to other exercises such as motion detection and indoor positioning services.”
Although the debate on which metal is the most suitable is subjective to individual specifications and project limitations, we hope to have shed some light on the benefits and drawbacks of both copper and aluminum busway trunking conductors that will aid your future decision making.
Nowadays, lighting can be much smarter, responsive to the surrounding conditions (presence of people, daylight), and more flexible to support changing functions, layouts, and individual choices for better lighting. Smart lighting controls add to the well-being of people and enable further energy savings.
As lighting design itself becomes more and more entangled in the technology, and as human-centric lighting takes the lead in future projects, the responsibility on the lighting designer is not only on the visual but on the function as well.
