Strategies in environmental lighting design

  1. Replace the Incandescent light with compact Fluorescent light. It not only help reduce the energy cost, also prolong the life of light fixture.
  2.  Add dimmer – If you dimme the 10% of light you double the life of light fixture. 
  3. Add occupancy sensor – the sensor detect both motion and heat change. When there is no occupancy, the lighting will auto matically turn off.
  4. Add Photo sensor near the window – the preset sensor will read the light level of environment. The lighting will turn on only when the day light is not bright enough.
  5. Increase the switchs- so you can switch only those light you need.
