Automate lighting control using KNX presence and daylight detectors
“I want to save energy by automating my school’s classroom lighting. The system also needs to be flexible and easy to expand and upgrade.”
Solution in brief
Control room lighting automatically according to occupation and natural light
Solution applicable to all buildings
The solution is built around presence detectors linked to switching actuators, and features a push- button control for use in manual mode. The entire system is connected via KNX open bus to facilitate extensions and upgrades.
Thanks to the presence detectors, lights are automatically switched on when a person enters the room if natural light is below a preset level. Lights are automatically switched off when no movement is detected in the room and the preset time delay has passed.
In manual mode, lights can be switched permanently on or off. Switching the system on in manual mode restarts automatic presence and natural light detection mode.
Benefits for End Users
> Use up to 20% less energy by aligning lighting use with room occupation (based on DIN V18599 or EN 15232 reference buildings)
Benefits for professionals
+ Flexible for easy upgrades and extensions
+ A source of new business opportunities
+ Lower, more predictable maintenance costs
