The security guards have fewer security issues when everything is illuminated
Building automation services like lighting controls can help save a business money by creating an energy efficient area that complies with all regulations. Using a centralized control, the lighting system is managed from a single source. The centralized source means there is only one person managing the facility making it efficient and organized. Building automation services such as lighting can absolutely help with energy efficiency, cost savings, and convenience. Automated lighting incorporates motion sensors. When an employee or customer enters the area, the lights automatically come on. This eliminates the need for manual switches and helps to reduce overall energy consumption. When there is no more movement in the room, the lights automatically turn off. These motion detectors can also be used with HVAC system controls. Another great thing about automated lighting is the security features. Lighting controls can be programmed to turn on or off at designated times. This can be perfect for outdoor lighting and security. When you can maintain a consistently well-lit area, security is no longer a huge problem. The entire parking lot looks like daytime now, even at night. The security guards have fewer security issues when everything is illuminated. Many smart automated lighting systems can also be remotely controlled using an app on a smartphone, tablet, or computer. Three months ago, I decided to update my business with integrated lighting controls and I have been able to save about 20% each month. The changes were expensive, but it won’t take very long to recoup that money when the savings each month are so high.
