Adaptive Lighting Systems

The lighting control strategy we’re reviewing today is a low-hanging fruit when it comes to energy savings, especially when we talk about smart lighting systems. Much simpler both in concept and implementation than occupancy sensing or daylight harvesting, scheduling still aims to do pretty much the same thing — eliminate unnecessary lighting usage. But since no sensors are involved, it doesn’t allow luminaires to respond to certain changes in the environment. Instead, it makes them perform in accordance with a predefined schedule.

In a lighting system employing the scheduling strategy, luminaires can automatically turn on, turn off, or dim at certain times of the day. And that’s it. As straightforward as the entire concept is, even simple lighting schedules can produce tangible benefits in spaces with predictable occupancy — offices, classrooms, retail sales floors, etc. The most basic use case involves lights automatically turning on just before the expected arrival of occupants, and turning off at the end of standard operating hours within a given space. Going further, luminaires can be set to dim (e.g., by 50% after normal business hours), and stay at that level for the next hour or two before shutting down completely. During that time, the cleaning crew can do its job, or the employees can perform various maintenance tasks, such as restocking, which do not require above-average light levels that we usually see e.g. in the retail segment.

Patrick Deschamps

Laurence Rocher-Brassard

Patrick Deschamps, father of a 10-year-old girl, was recently appointed Vice President of Commercial Sales at Contact Delage.

While still a CEGEP student, Patrick launched a small lawn mowing business. As he worked on the sales and marketing side of his business, he realized how much he loved it. For the next two years, he worked at a car dealership, but his schedule was incompatible with his family life. Patrick then returned to studies in international trade.
