While you might not realise it, lighting has a considerable impact on how your building operates, and in more ways than you might initially think. Poor lighting can result in wasted energy, a loss of money, and even an unhappy workforce. But how do you efficiently manage the light in not just one room, but an entire building? How do you offer more control over your team’s working environment? Lutron Quantum could be the answer you’re looking for.
What is Lutron Quantum?
Quantum is a complete lighting control and energy management system that ties a wide range of lighting controllers, motorised window shades, digital ballasts and LED drivers, and sensors together on a single, easy-to-use application. In short, Quantum gives you access to every light or source of light in your building in one place.
Good for your people, and your bottom line.
We all know that a workplace needs to be well-lit, but did you know that lighting is one of the most significant ambient factors in work efficiency? In scientific terms, it’s called human-centric lighting, and there have been thousands of hours of study monitoring its effects and applications in office and working environments. The result of all these studies? Lighting matters.
With Quantum, you can create beautiful, dynamic spaces that adapt to meet changing needs — like bright, daylight-like lights for bustling offices with lots of space, or warm, inviting hues for collaborative meetings and to foster engagement. Good lighting design allows people to work and feel their best, and your business will reap the benefits.
And while productive teams are a business’ greatest asset, saving money and doing your part for the planet are a couple of bonuses you shouldn’t turn down. Quantum can lower your energy outputs by adjusting lighting to the needs of each individual area. Is one of your rooms empty? A lighting sensor can be used to automatically turn the lights off. Is it a bright sunny day outside? Quantum can open your blinds and dim the lights to make the most of natural daylight. Sounds like a pricey system? It’s not. Through the use of Quantum’s smart controls, you could see a return on investment in as little as three years, and it could save you thousands of pounds over its lifetime.
Element29 are adapting
In our previous blog, we covered how we were attempting to operate as usual with increased safety precautions — this is no longer the case. Following the government’s clear advice and restrictions, we are changing the way that we work. Any on-site work has been placed on hold until we are told it is safe to proceed and return to standard operation. But this doesn’t mean we’re closed.
We’re still open for virtual consultations, to chat over the phone, and to plan your project down the line. So if you’ve been dreaming of a new home cinema, you’re looking to turn your new-build into a smart home, or you’re planning to increase workplace productivity and energy efficiency, contact us today.
