Lighting is an essential provision for workplace safety, poor lighting may affect employees’ health and performance, and even result in fatigue, falling or tripping. A good lighting not just improves productivity but also helps to improve employees’ feeling of well-being. On the other hand, it is important to note that lighting accounts for 40% of all electricity used in office buildings and it would be a waste if the lighting stays on when there is no one around.
Corridors are the vital network inside offices for people to move around and they can also be part of the functional spaces too, for examples, displaying artworks or awards, therefore, they must be optimally illuminated to ensure safe orientation and movement, as well as for corporate image and employees’ well-being. On the other hand, corridors and stairways are only occasionally used, meaning that keeping them lit continuously consumes unnecessarily high amounts of energy. However, sadly to say, the vast majority of today’s corridors can’t make adjustment to the lighting, other than to just turn them on or off.
Energy costs are another problem in today’s corridor lighting systems, the lack of energy efficacy and control for conventional lighting system in corridors brings significant challenges.
Intelli-Corridor: The Answer to Corridors’ Needs
The Intelli-Corridor lighting system offers a new generation of lighting to give employees a better working environment while at the same time save a great amount of energy for business owners.
First, the Intelli-Corridor system incorporates LEDbay’s DL12 or DL15 series of LED downlights, which deliver comfortable and shadow-free light, and they are flicker- and glare-free light. These are important for eye protection and the feeling of well-being, as well as for corporate image.
Second, with the smart sensors that installed together with the LED downlights, the Intelli-Corridor system can turn light into full brightness automatically upon detection of the movements and then turn light into half, 30% or 10% of brightness after the dwelling time, and eventually turn off the light completely if there is no further movements detected. The LEDbay’s smart sensors also come with the daylight harvesting feature to maximise the energy savings.
Third, the Intelli-Corridor system comes with the “corridor” function which allows all lights at the same corridor to be turned on, dimmed down, or turned off simultaneously, regardless where the movement is detected - from left, from centre, or from right. This ensures the maximum safety and security of the areas, especially for night or after-work hours.
Lastly, with LEDbay’s eco-friendly, power-efficient, and long-lifespan LED products, businesses enjoy not just great energy savings but also maintenance ease in the long run. With our “lighting on demand” technologies, you get full control of your lighting systems, as well as your electricity bills.
