Intelligent lighting control
It is a known problem that the light is on down the hall or in the courtyard – even after the end of working hours. It can be described as waste where the light and energy consumption have no practical function.
It is possible to automate switching on/off based on a number of parameters such as:
- Time – if switched on outside of production then the light is switched off
- Movement – turn on the light if movement (PIR sensor)
- Schedule for the animals’ feeding times – if, for example, night lighting is required, it will be possible to turn on the lights at the right time and during the desired period.
- Time of year and weather – with light control (snooze relay), turning on/off lights can be made more efficient and lights in production will only be on when necessary
Time of year, weather and normal working hours can of course be combined so that you achieve the greatest possible efficiencies and greatest savings in energy consumption. This can be relevant for all lighting systems, but especially older systems that have not been converted to LED.
