Lighting control systems for your office

Spending the majority of their time inside an office space means that many office staff struggle with a range of medical issues. From insufficient lighting causing eye strain, headaches and migraines, to the simple germs and bacteria that quickly spread when people work in such close proximity to one another.

Lighting control systems for your 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.
