Even when dimmed to such a low level, fixtures appear to be on, making the store feel “open for business,” and making the ceiling of the office space bright. , colorcoded diagram or list of control ideas) to the client and/or the owners, and they are bound to wonder about the bottom line. Perform a simple, rough economic analysis for the conceptual design. Note that 30 percent to 45 percent of a building’s electricity bill is typically for lighting. And 30 percent to 35 percent of the cost of a building is for the mechanical 46 Advanced Lighting Controls systems and envelope architecture.

When sensors are visible, they should be attractive enough to help assure acceptability by occupants of the building. Photocells Photocell controls respond to changes in ambient light. When the ambient light level falls to a user-determined level, lighting is switched on. When the ambient light increases to a user-determined level, lighting is switched off. Insofar as outdoor safety and security are concerned, a photocell control is superior to a time control because it can respond to overcast 24 Advanced Lighting Controls conditions during daylight hours.
