OT Electric can install outdoor lighting with a wireless switch in the house to control the outside lighting and add as many remotes as are necessary. You can turn lights on and off from the safety of your car as you pull into your driveway. In addition, we can add as many security lights, either motion or switch, to any property to make it more secure at night for you to walk and deter people looking to possibly rob your home in the dark.
Although lighting control solutions have been proven to significantly reduce lighting energy consumption, many parts of commercial building market have been hesitant due to cost, complexity and applicability. However, new wireless technologies are eliminating these concerns, while expanding the lighting control capabilities.
Removing the wires
A new generation of lighting control systems is reducing cost and eliminating complexity concerns by removing the dedicated control wiring.
Instead of placing controls where wiring permits, building owners are free to place controls where they are needed to improve building performance. As the needs of a space change, changes can be made at any point, or new devices and control strategies added, simply by reprogramming.
Once a wireless network is established, that network can grow to cover an ever-expanding area at a low additional cost. Additional sensors, switches and lights require minimal labor and disruption, and utilize the same wireless control system without the need to add a new control infrastructure.
Lighting control manages and automates the delivery of the correct amount of light, where you want it, when you want it. Lights can automatically turn on/off or dim at set times or under set conditions, and users can have control over their own lighting levels to provide optimal working conditions. A lighting control solution automates and simplifies cost- and energy-saving strategies such as below.
Turn on/off and dim lights at specified times during the day—for example, automatically turn lights on at the start of business hours, and off after workers leave at night.
Detect when a room is occupied, to automatically turn lights on when someone enters and off (or dim) shortly after they leave.
Use photosensors to detect levels of natural lighting, and automatically dim lights when sunlight is streaming into windows. This reduces energy use and provides consistent lighting levels.
Utility companies frequently offer their customers incentives to encourage them to reduce energy consumption, especially at times of peak usage or when retail energy prices are high. Lighting control solutions can automatically respond to these events and reduce energy consumed by lighting to pre-set levels.
No matter how urgent any electrical repairs seem, it’s never okay to attempt to handle them on your own. Trying to take care of electrical problems without professional training is extremely dangerous. If you or someone else isn’t hurt during your attempt, there’s still a chance that you’ve left something undone that poses a huge risk to you, your home, or your family. In fact, faulty electrical wiring is the number one cause of house fires in the United States, according to the National Fire Protection Agency. So in order to make sure that your home is safe, always rely on a professional for any electrical services.
Circuit breakers that keep tripping, a flickering light on the back porch, or an exhaust fan that just won’t work properly—all of these are common problems homeowners face that have something to do with their electrical systems. But figuring out where the problem is stemming from can take a lot of work. Our OT Electric technicians will find out exactly what’s causing the problem, and what other problem may be happening—or beginning to happen—for the same reasons. Then we’ll nip them in the bud.
