STANDARD has helped many companies realize energy efficient solutions through lighting upgrades. Building upon our experience, we have developed a unique wireless lighting control system to help companies meet current energy codes and reduce energy consumption.
How does the system work?
Every application requires a controller, because without it, the switch is not connected to anything. The controller is the brain of the lighting system; it is connected to the light source and tells the light source what to do: ON/OFF/DIM. One controller is tied to one circuit; meaning that you will need one controller per circuit installed in the room.
Switches, occupancy sensors and photocells communicate wirelessly to the controller to build an integrated system. Before building your system, here are a few questions you should ask yourself:
- Do you want to add switches without fishing wires through walls?
- Do you want the lights to automatically go OFF when the room is vacant?
- Do you want the lights to automatically go OFF when there is enough natural light in the room?
Once you’ve determined your goal, select the right products for your needs.
In order to facilitate your STANDARD wireless lighting controls installation, we built several instruction videos to guide you through programming as well as others to help you test the correct functioning of your system. Read Learn how to program STANDARD wireless controls to know more.
Our wireless switches are easy to install and are ideal for any hard-to-wire areas with textured walls (i.e. glass, wood, concrete, etc.). They are convenient for all retrofit projects. They provide a non-invasive installation; there is no alteration of wallboard or hard ceilings necessary, contrary to wired switch legs. The switches are battery-free and operate by harvesting kinetic energy, which makes the system maintenance free.
Occupancy sensors offer you peace of mind and an Automatic ON, Automatic OFF. They are ideal for areas where the traffic is sporadic and they ensure lights are turned OFF when they are not needed. Therefore, adding an occupancy sensor can help you can gain 35 to 45 % in energy savings.
The photocell monitors the interior light level of a room. When there is a lot of natural light coming into the room, the photocell wirelessly communicates with the linked controller to turn the lights OFF.
