Luminaire Ancillary

Stop Wasting Electricity

In the past large buildings wasted huge amounts of electricity. Lighting was often left on in empty rooms, corridors and stairways for long periods of time. In large towns and cities, it is not uncommon to see buildings with their lights switched on all night. This is due to forgetfulness and can prove to be a very expensive oversight. Modern technology can overcome this problem and big savings are possible. (continued below)

Efficient Control Of Lights

In our luminaire ancillary section are a range of electronic switches and controls. They allow complete management over the lighting on the inside and outside of a building. They save energy by switching off lighting when not required. Then only re-activating when it's needed. They can help with security. They can switch on lights at dusk and help prevent burglaries. But, it's the convenience gained by using these products that's the main benefit. Because they are fit and forget products.

Automatic Lighting Sensors

The PIR is the most common detector in use today. They turn on lights all over the UK. They activate lights on small driveways and large industrial estates. The remote photocell sensor is also popular. It switches lights on at dusk and off at dawn. Other controls include PIR occupancy switches. They check areas for people and turn off lighting when none are present. Occupancy switches with automatic dimming will adjust internal lighting. It will adjust according to external natural light levels. There are also radio remote controls available. And, other luminaire ancillary items.

Installing Lighting Controls

Most of the lighting sensors are easy to install. Because they're wired into existing circuits. They're designed to retrofit or are suitable for new installations. Some PIR motion sensors may need extra wiring. The amount of extra wiring will depend on the distance between the sensor and the light. In most cases, sensors are close to light fittings. That will mean minimal extra work.
