Architects & Lighting Design
Replace your timers and photocells with a Wireless Telematics Lighting Controller and you will:
Save time, save energy, improve energy efficiency, and reduce time spent resetting timers or replacing photocells.
Provide your clients with precise and accurate control with confidence and reliability.
The LCMS, with two functioning and independent channels can control two electrical circuits on different schedules independent of each other. For example:
- Landscape Lighting
- Recirculation Pumps
- HVAC Units
- Charging Station
With the WT LCMS, you set it and forget it. It just works. You don’t have to reset it for daylight savings time changes, sunset/sunrise changes, or power outages. It knows your GPS location and changes the lighting schedule daily according to your precise GPS location—automatically. If the power ever goes out at your facility, it alerts you immediately via text or email. When the power goes back on it tells you that, too.
If you have a photocell then you may be monitoring the lights from time to time to make sure the photocell is not dirty, degraded, or failed. Eventually the photocell will have to be replaced (usually every 3-5 years) which requires scheduling an electrician, meeting the electrician at the property to give access to the photocell and circuit breaker, and locking up after the work is done. You are spending time doing tasks that you do not need to do with the WT LCMS.
How does the WT LCMS save money?
The only day a timer is right is the day you set it. Because sunrise/sunset times change every day, your timer could be wrong by more than two minutes the next day, 15 minutes in a week, and an hour in just one month. That means your lights may be “on” for an hour while it is still light outside—that is wasting money on electricity and bulbs and ballasts. On a related note, if you rely on a maintenance person to reset the timers you are risking lights on during the day, or worse yet, no lights on in the dark.
Photocells get progressively worse as time goes on until they eventually fail, all the while wasting energy and money. The LCMS eliminates that problem by automatically turning lights on and off at the right time every day.
