smart lighting

• What is smart lighting?

Intelligent lighting refers to the use of computers, wireless communication data transmission, spread spectrum power carrier communication technology, computer intelligent information processing and energy-saving electrical control and other technologies composed of distributed wireless telemetry, remote control, telecommunication control system to achieve intelligent control of lighting equipment. It has the functions of intensity adjustment of lighting brightness, soft start of lighting, timer control, scene setting, etc.; and achieves the characteristics of safety, energy saving, comfort and high efficiency.

 

• What is an intelligent control system?

Lighting intelligent control system is an integrated system of advanced technology, which uses computers, network technology, wireless communication data transmission, power carrier communication technology, computer intelligent information processing, sensing technology and energy-saving electrical control and other technologies to achieve intelligent control of lighting equipment.

This system is able to monitor the power supply in real time and automatically adjust the voltage and current of the circuit to improve the unbalanced load and extra power consumption in the lighting circuit. It also has the functions of light brightness adjustment, light soft-start, timer control, scene setting, etc., and can automatically adjust the lighting parameters according to the change of ambient light. Intelligent lighting control system usually consists of a control centre, sensors, smart bulbs and smart switches, etc. Through the linkage and collaboration between these devices, it achieves efficient, energy-saving and humane lighting management. In addition, it features easy installation, cable saving and safe use, and can be linked with the fire protection system to improve management and reduce maintenance costs.

 

• Smart City Lighting

Intelligent city lighting refers to the use of advanced scientific and technological means and information and communication technologies to enhance the efficiency and intelligence of urban lighting systems. This kind of lighting system can not only provide high-quality lighting services, but also achieve the goals of energy saving, environmental

protection and intelligent management and other objectives. Intelligent city lighting has become an important part of urban construction and sustainable development functions and features.

Intelligent city lighting system has the following functions and features.

  1. Energy saving: intelligent lighting system adopts energy efficient LED lighting technology, which can significantly reduce energy consumption and achieve energy saving effect. In addition, the system can also minimise energy consumption through intelligent dimming, intelligent sensing and other functions while ensuring the lighting effect.
  2. Environmental protection: The intelligent lighting system helps improve the environmental quality of the city by reducing energy consumption and carbon emissions. At the same time, the system uses intelligent control and management to reduce light pollution, protect the ecological environment at night, and improve the human environment quality.
  3. Intelligent management: Intelligent lighting system realises intelligent monitoring and remote management of lighting facilities through sensors and network technology. The system can monitor the working status and energy consumption of the lighting equipment in real time, find faults and carry out maintenance in a timely manner. In addition, the system can also carry out intelligent dimming, intelligent lighting scene settings and other functions according to the demand, so as to improve the efficiency of urban management and the level of intelligence.
  4. Data application: Intelligent lighting system can collect a large amount of lighting equipment and environmental data, which can be used to optimise the lighting scheme, refined energy consumption management and smart city construction. At the same time, the system can also be interconnected with other intelligent systems of urban infrastructure to achieve data sharing and comprehensive use.

 

• Municipal lighting

  1. Lighting of landscape

It needs to be based on the specific situation of the landscape and some features to design, such as hard landscape and soft plastic landscape lighting to do a whole design specifications, so that the park and lighting can be better together.

The so-called garden hard landscape, that is, buildings, roads and river surface, etc., while the garden soft plastic landscape means green or flora, etc., these are the most important landscape garden.图片1 1

  1. City square night lighting

This type of lighting project, in the design of its role from the provisions of the beginning, must adopt a scientific approach to the design of the lighting programme. Generally the use of simple and light-hearted lamps and lanterns colour, but the shape must be designed beautifully, and then in accordance with the design of the layout to install, so that the entire city square and the environment naturally blend together.图片2 1

  1. Building architectural lighting

In the building building lighting project is, need in accordance with the reconstruction of artificial services to build to design, such as the use of clothing, food, housing and transport and other types of themes, to reflect the image of the landscape of the building. For example, there is a landmark building, or the great front and so on. And when doing lighting, the layout should be reasonable, can be the characteristics of the building and the structure of all are reflected.图片3

  1. Commercial building lighting

Commercial services building lighting project needs to be designed according to the role of commercial areas, characteristics and types of aspects, from the comprehensive aspects of the consideration, and storefronts, outdoor billboards, and other areas of the scenery are constructed out of the unified planning of the commercial area, to achieve uniformity and harmony of the lighting effect.图片4

  1. Road and bridge lighting

In the road and bridge lighting project, must ensure that the normal operation of roads and bridges. At the same time, for the bridge used on the street lamps, wall-washing lamps, etc. must be carefully planned, effective lighting of roads and bridges to reflect the beauty.图片5

 

• What are the potential environmental benefits of smart lighting?

Intelligent lighting can have a significant impact on the environment by using sensors and smart controls to adjust the amount of light needed at any given moment. By intelligently regulating the light levels in homes, offices, and public spaces, we can prevent unnecessary energy consumption and reduce carbon emissions.

One of the primary benefits of intelligent lighting is energy savings. By only providing the necessary amount of light, intelligent lighting systems can significantly reduce the amount of energy consumed. This not only saves money on utility bills but also helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Another environmental benefit of intelligent lighting is the reduction in light pollution. By controlling the brightness and direction of light sources, intelligent lighting systems can reduce the amount of light that is wasted and directed towards the sky. This not only helps to conserve energy but also reduces the impact of light pollution on the environment.

Intelligent lighting also has the potential to improve air quality. By reducing the amount of energy consumed by lighting systems, we can also reduce the amount of pollutants released into the air. This can have a positive impact on public health and reduce the overall environmental impact of lighting systems.

In addition to energy savings and reduced light pollution, intelligent lighting systems can also help to conserve natural resources. By using LED lighting, which has a longer lifespan and requires less frequent replacement, we can reduce the need for frequent replacements and the associated waste.

Overall, intelligent lighting has the potential to significantly reduce the environmental impact of lighting systems. By using sensors and smart controls to regulate light levels, we can conserve energy, reduce light pollution, improve air quality, and conserve natural resources. By implementing intelligent lighting systems, we can make a positive impact on the environment while also improving the quality of our lives.
