Lighting ControllersLighting controllers change from customer to customer depending on their needs and the idea they have of how the lighting should operate.
For example Crestron have a very comprehensive range of wall switches and motion sensors for controlling lighting. Not only can the make-up of the switch be changed to suit each location and function, but the style of the switch can be changed from white plastic to stainless steel, brass, nickel or almost any other material and design, to suit all tastes.
Smart Lighting ControlThe lighting control "engine" which does all the hard work of controlling the light levels is usually a fast processor which has to provide instant response to all commands or there is a risk of the customer not feeling that the system listens to him, leading to frustration and eventually rejection.
LoxOne Systems provide lighting control using modular controllers and a typical house would have between 6 and 12 or more controllers. This type of control is very robust since failure of one of the controllers will not prevent the others from continuing their work.
The Advantage of Intelligent Lighting ControllersThe beauty of programmable lighting controllers is that changes can be made to lighting schemes without huge and costly changes to the house itself. In some cases these changes can be done remotely using the internet to download the new scenes or lighting scheme and it can be installed and tested without a visit to the home, thus reducing cost and preserving the privacy of the home.
