Replace your timers and photocells with a Wireless Telematics Lighting Controller and you will:
Save Time and Hassles – reduce time spent resetting timers or replacing photocells.
Save Money – by using less electricity, bulbs, and ballasts.
Make your tenants happy – by going “green” and having the lights turn on and off correctly.
As a facility manager you probably have your hands full dealing with the day-to-day operation of your facility. You do not need the added hassles and bother of changing timers and dealing with photocells. With the WT LCMS you can eliminate those hassles and use your valuable time to focus on more important matters. You can also save money and energy with the WT LCMS.
How does the WT LCMS eliminate the hassle of resetting timers and dealing with photocells?
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. No hassles, no worries. 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.
The WT LCMS saves money and energy by making sure your lights turn “on” and “off” at the right times every day.
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.
How does the WT LCMS make property owners, tenants and customers happy?
The WT LCMS makes everyone happy because:
- The owner/tenants are saving money and energy.
- The customers are happy because the lights are no longer on during the day. They are also happy that the lights are on when it is dark.
- The owner/tenants are using “green” technology and reducing their carbon footprint which makes them look good to the public.
- The owners/tenants are reducing their liability risk – instead of relying on a maintenance person to reset the timers as it gets darker earlier, the WT LCMS automatically adjusts to earlier sunsets.
- Owners will be happy with the energy efficiency improvements that they must disclose in California under AB 1103.
