The wireless lighting control systems reduce 70% of the installation labor compared to the more traditional wired networks. Additionally, making any adjustments to the wireless system is quick. Repositioning sensors and controls, and adding control locations can be done effortlessly with these systems, reducing the labor costs.
How the Wireless Lighting System Works
The conventional automatic lighting control system uses an input device that interacts with the power controller. The input device can be a photosensor. However, the current control system uses radio waves to communicate with the power controller.
The wireless lighting system consists of luminaire controllers, which are also called dimming modules. A junction box hosts the modules, input devices, sensors, and management devices, such as gateways and servers.
The sensors have a wireless transmitter that communicates with the gateways to send a message to a server. The server then communicates with the controller to adjust the luminaire’s status.
All devices connect via a programmable network. However, the setup methods are different depending on the manufacturer. The communication between the devices also depends on their signal range. The range should be within close proximity.
How to Install the Wireless System
You can get design templates that can help you to install the wireless lighting system with minimal effort. The templates have a simple design that aligns with code compliance.
Additionally, the templates are a part of the electronic tools that are fast and reliable, enabling you to use just basic project information. The app that you use to carry out the installation vests you with the commissioning capability.
So, you will install and commission the wireless lighting control system without any third-party assistance. Thus, you will end up saving money and time.
Given the convenience that the wireless lighting control system offers, it might be time to make changes. To Learn how wireless lighting control systems work watch the video below:
