Lighting control strategies for the garage include:
- Task Tuning: Good lighting design provides the appropriate light levels for the occupants’ requirements. The Adura Lighting Control System can trim reserve capacity to save energy and money. At the Kaiser Center Garage lights are task tuned to 70 percent when the space is occupied, and reduced to 20 percent when unoccupied or there is adequate daylight.
- Daylight harvesting: Adura’s system uses photocells that communicate through the wireless mesh network, controlling lights in the garage in response to changing light levels and raising or dimming the lights as needed.
- Occupancy Detection: The Adura system responds to the real-time use of the garages. Strategically placed occupancy sensors insure that not only occupied areas are lit (as is the case with ordinary motion sensors), but areas ahead of pedestrian or vehicle traffic are illuminated as well. This predictive response is enabled by Adura’s intelligent networked solution.
