Create a Smarter Facility with Networked Lighting Controls Technology

Applications for Commercial Building and Campus Renovation Projects

Conversations about fundamental systems in the facility are taking center stage for renovation projects. When lighting is involved, there’s an opportunity to include digital technologies such as networked controls. This will result in reducing a facility’s Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), which greatly benefits from smart building technologies to drive efficiencies of core building systems.

The nLight lighting controls platform creates a smart wired or wireless network within a space or facility.

It evolves with building and business needs to support connection with additional systems while controlling, monitoring and integrating with the lighting and building management systems (BMS). Read more about this innovative product.

One way to spearhead innovation is to install a low bandwidth connection across a building, which enables businesses to capitalize on many opportunities for improvement derived from building data. By providing real-time business insights to address challenges like customer relationship management, maintenance predictions, and product/service intelligence, IoT solutions are offering a more complete picture to stakeholders (Forrester, Use IoT To Link Physical Operations And Digital Business”, 2018). According to Forrester, “IoT creates new data about the physical world that all companies can use to boost digital processes.”

In the recent ARCVIEW, authored by Jim Frazer from ARC Web, Frazer states “Acuity Brands’ nLight® software and hardware suite is designed to offer a dramatic new approach to project planning that addresses the total cost of ownership (TCO) and sustainability objectives for all stakeholders, while helping projects to be delivered on-schedule and under-budget.”
