Most facility managers are initially motivated to take up connected LED lighting to reduce energy costs. Based on the 2017 field study by the Design Light Consortium (DLC) in the US, network lighting control (NLC) systems can potentially produce an additional 47% of energy savings to an existing lighting system. Connected LED lighting is also an obvious way to meet sustainability compliance and the investment pays for itself. No brainer.
What is less understood however, is that the savings don’t start and stop with energy efficiency. If you’re in charge of an office or building, connected lighting can help you get smart about occupancy and the use of space as well.
