Advanced LED Lighting Controls
For commercial buildings
Advanced lighting controls take LED functionality and energy savings to the next level. While controls features have become more sophisticated, they are now easier to install and operate. In addition to producing an average lighting energy savings of 47 percent over facilities without controls*, advanced controls offer non-energy benefits, such as traffic sensing, space utilization and energy tracking.
