Intelligent lighting control achieves savings through reduced energy consumption, ease of use and maintenance and more accurate maintenance. Automated, sensor based control solutions reduce the need for manual user interaction while keeping lighting conditions ideal where needed. In addition, presence data can be utilized to monitor and optimize space use. Connected lighting also allows access to diagnostic information and wireless communication keeps wiring simple.
The appropriate level of intelligence must be selected on an application-by-application basis. The possibilities and needs of a parking garage, open-plan office, traditional office, production hall and factory yard area, both in terms of lighting and other systems, are usually very different. Technical spaces are a good example of spaces where intelligent control is rarely justified. However, for example, a timed shutdown makes sense so that the lighting of a rarely used space is not forgotten on.
In an open office, the use of space can change on a daily basis, in which case the presence information automatically provides good working lighting for the workstations used. This saves energy by turning the lighting on only the necessary areas and on the other hand ease of use is emphasized when the user does not have to worry about manual lighting control.
Energy can also be saved by utilizing natural light as part of the lighting: based on the light sensor, LED lighting complements the light output from natural light to a value suitable for work.
Color temperature controls can affect users' alertness, and colors can make it easier to find a free parking space, for example.
In a wireless mesh network, devices communicate directly with each other and, when necessary, forward messages to devices that cannot communicate directly due to distance or obstacles. In such a network, there is no need for a base station through which all communication takes place. Connecting to the Internet is done through a gateway. If the remote connection is particularly critical, it is important to ensure that there can be several gateways, so that the failure of one gateway does not prevent the use of the remote connection.
AD-Lux has years of experience in various lighting solutions. Contact us and we will present our views on the best lighting solution right at your premises!
Philips EasyAir - easy and adaptable
The EasyAir system brings benefits in energy management. The lighting is on only when needed and where it is really needed. Energy savings are significant; the combination of presence detection and daylight detection can save up to 50%. EasyAir wireless sensors are ideal for office, industrial or outdoor use.
EasyAir - components
AD-Lux AD-Linear luminaire
With EasyAir control unit. Standard delivery with 2m connection cable 3x1.5S. Also ask about other connection methods and luminaire models!
EasyAir - software
We also offer commissioning as a service! The commissioning device is connected to the headphone socket of the Android mobile device and the luminaire is connected via an infrared link. Alternatively, NFC can be used if the controller is within reach. With Philips Field Apps, luminaires can be grouped and set control values for backlighting and work area lighting.
Chess mymesh - secure and scalable
lighting control system
Mymesh is a unique network protocol designed to be particularly secure, durable, and scalable, making it perfect for professional use. It offers a wide range of options to connect, control and manage thousands of devices simultaneously. Mymesh makes construction, maintenance and safety very flexible and efficient because it is easy to install, manage and analyze.

Wireless mymesh button. Silicone shell. Estimated battery life 10 years. Room control: on / off and dimming Central control: on, forced off, emergency
Wireless mymesh sensor, motion and brightness. Silicone shell. Luminance information can be used to utilize natural light as part of lighting. Estimated battery life 10 years.
Input unit with four top inputs. For connecting other systems and devices.
An Internet gateway to connect a mymesh solution to the Internet.
Mymesh - software
We also offer commissioning as a service! The deployment device connects wirelessly to the mymesh network and the iOS mobile device. The application creates the floors and rooms of the building where the devices connected to the network are dragged into the grid. The standard functions correspond well to the basic operation; dimming levels and duration of motion detection retention.
Mymesh Management System (MMS)
With a cloud management solution, you can monitor, control and customize your lighting. For example, data on energy consumption, lamp burning times and presence detectors can be used to optimize space use and anticipate maintenance. To take advantage of the cloud management solution, the system must be connected to the Internet!
