Contactless Lighting for life 2.0
One thing that corona-virus (COVID-19) has taught many people is to follow a stringent hygiene routine. This includes covering the face with masks, regularly washing or sanitizing hands, disinfecting everything and opting for contactless services and products.
By following these precautions, slowly and steadily, people of India are coming out of their cocoons and joining back their workplaces and also being open to meet families and friends in a small gathering. Though most individuals are following the self-imposed practices; however, contactless products is a category wherein the need to adapt to new technology will be required. Though this technique has existed for years in the form of contactless payment, voice activation devices, telehealth, etc. yet in both offices and homes, it hasn’t entirely been adapted.
Hence, let’s look at this essential element, contactless lighting that will be preferred in life 2.0 primarily because switches, button panels, pull cords, touch screens, etc. are often used by over one person.
For this, companies like Havells dedicated their engineering and technology team towards developing products with touchless features. The company is working towards upgrading the LED lights, a preferred source of illumination because of its benefits like energy efficiency, ergonomics, and convenience.
The feature-rich contactless LED lighting will soon be available with inbuilt occupancy sensors, a photo-sensor for daylight based dimming, scheduling on/off, dimming, tunability and will also be controlled and monitored with remote control. The new form of smart lighting will also allow precise deployment, which will make having LEDs at home even more economical.
Furthermore, individual luminaries will be controlled directly using the network powered lighting controller and configurations. This will enable managing every single area conveniently with a click of the mouse.
Some other advantages of contactless lighting are-
– Reduction of operating costs
– Optimization of energy consumption, e.g., of up to 80% for lighting
– Better lighting quality by controlling- light level, spatial brightness, color output, set local light preference
– Requires no centralized planning or control
– Allow preventive maintenance which will thereby, lessen the cost
– Maximize integration and space utilization with the use of a networked lighting control system
So, with benefits galore, let’s make a switch to contactless lighting as this change will not only safeguard us from COVID-19 but also any other ailment.
