“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.
The electrical contractor Electrio’s main aim was to minimise the wiring and cabling due to the restrictions of a listed building and implement a more flexible lighting control solution.
“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.”
