Combining lighting control systems in the office

Lighting control systems can help to create the right amount of light in any space. For offices this can be very important to establish, as your staff are likely to spend a lot of time in the workplace. Incorrect lighting can lead to eye strain, headaches and migraines, which increases the level of absenteeism and increases stress. As a result, you should seriously consider the lighting control system, and maybe even combine different options, to achieve the perfect lighting results.┬áHere at Walker Electrical, we are Preston’s leading electrical experts.

What are the different options for combining lighting control systems in the office?

Lighting control systems for your office can include:

  • Dimmer switches- offering far more flexibility than a regular on/off switch, the dimmer switch is a great option for offices. Lights can be dimmed to an appropriate level, to make it much easier for employees to have control over the level of light in a room. This can prevent eye strain and headaches from occurring.
  • PIR sensors- another form of lighting control is PIR motion sensors. These automatically switch on when any motion is detected, and will switch off once it has stopped. The advantage of this type of lighting control system is that lights in your conference room, or corridors will not be left on when they are not necessary. So you wont be wasting money and electricity illuminating spaces for no reason.
  • Electric blinds- while this might not seem lighting related at all, having control over your blinds, in any room, is very beneficial. Natural light is the best form of lighting for any space. And using natural light can bring many improvements for your staff. However, it can also cause glare. So electric blinds, or automated blinds, can be the perfect solution. Your blinds will track the suns movements and respond appropriately.

Using a combination of these options can help to ensure that the light level is optimal.
