Making Lighting Systems Smart
Large buildings are required to have adequate lighting, especially along exit routes. Lighting systems must be maintained to ensure proper lighting at all times. Failure to comply with local and federal regulations regarding lighting can lead to hefty fines and possible closure.
Buildings Are Required By Law To Maintain Proper Lighting
Keeping up with lighting requirements can be extremely difficult in large buildings. This is especially true for buildings with multiple types of lighting including incandescent, LED, fluorescent, and halogen bulbs. When bulbs go out, it can take building managers a long time to figure it out. Once the problem is detected, changing bulbs in a crowded building creates a number of challenges. It’s clear that building owners need a better solution.
Mint Controls’ lighting system includes IoT sensors. These sensors collect and transmit large amounts of data on lighting fixture health, bulb condition, location, and more. This data is sent to the cloud where analytics are applied. Potential problems are detected in real-time, allowing them to be addressed before they are able to create a problem.
Our system makes it possible to know exactly when bulbs will burn out as well as the exact location of the fixture requiring maintenance. This makes it possible to schedule predictive maintenance and solve a number of problems before they become a much bigger issue.
Our system works with every type of bulb, even when buildings contain multiple types. Real-time alerts are sent the moment a problem is detected.
Optional Features Add Value And Security To Our Lighting System
In addition to equipment health and maintenance issues, our lighting system is available with optional motion sensors and lasers to track the location and activities of every person in the building. This allows easy and accurate monitoring visitors and employees at all times. Relevant information can be viewed at any time from any location in the world. All that is needed is a smart phone, computer, or laptop.
Our smart lighting system can be used to help improve the security of large buildings. Optional features enable the system to detect gunshots. Motion detectors and lasers are used to determine the exact location of the gun. Our system can be tied into other systems to activate emergency alarms, sprinkler systems, and lock down specific areas of the building. This feature is ideal for locations where security is important such as hotels, schools, convention centers, and concert halls.
