Lighting Controls

Lighting control systems are more important than ever. Not only does light control help conserve energy, but we’re learning more and more about how indoor environments affect our behavior and enhance everything from productivity to learning. When you want to take advantage of lighting control advancements without a complete retrofit, ControlByWeb presents an ideal solution.

Drop-In Lighting Solution

Advanced lighting control systems are often integrated with a larger building automation system and are typically installed in new construction. For retrofits that cannot afford a total overhaul, our programmable I/O controllers are great drop-in solutions.

Our customers have used our I/O devices for things like remote switching, light scheduling, security lights, light timers, and much more.

Inputs that are compatible with digital signals from push-buttons to analog signals from photocells can be used to dim or switch lights on and off in many intelligent ways. Because our customer’s needs vary so widely, so, too, do our solutions.

What You Can Do

Lighting Schedules

Controlling lights based on a schedule is useful for nearly any commercial building but can also be useful in residences and other buildings or structures, like parking garages.

Manual Light Control

The simple act of controlling a manual input such as a switch or a button from a control panel is used to control lights in everything from sports complexes to churches.

Commonly Used In:

  • Security
  • Parking Garages
  • Sports Complexes & Stadiums
  • Office Buildings
  • Churches
  • and more!

Common Lighting Automation Problems

Problem X Icon
Expensive Control Systems

Lighting control systems get expensive, and often integrate with building automation systems installed in new construction. Retrofitted projects are very pricey.

Problem X Icon
Simple Solutions Lack Functionality

Most affordable I/O modules are overly simple and lack programmability, scheduling, and the flexibility needed to adjust to variable needs.

Problem X Icon
Limited Technical Skills

Drop-in solutions can quickly become complicated when I/O modules or PLCs require coding skills to create a viable solution, which limits access to efficient controls.

Case Study: Parking Garage Lane Light Control

Parking Garage Lights

One of our customers specializes in solutions which improve revenue for property owners and 21st century convenience for drivers. Parking garages in the US are a $10 billion industry that will rely heavily on technological advancements to improve profitability over the coming years of slow projected growth. Our products paired with our customer’s solution offers streamlined operations and attracts discerning customers.

Their proprietary cloud-based data acquisition and reporting system helps parking garage owners and operators know where they stand, and their control system automates nearly everything. As they developed their automation, they turned to ControlByWeb with a very specific need: lane control.

Each morning, the rush to work takes over parking garages across the US. More lanes are needed coming into a parking garage in the morning. In the afternoon and evening, more lanes are needed going out of a parking garage. To schedule the lights that label each lane’s purpose, our customer found an ideal partner in ControlByWeb.

Our commitment to simple solutions and low pricing allows them to focus on other meaningful developments for their customers rather than developing their own hardware for this specific task.

It might seem simple, and it is, but it’s also very important. By having flex lanes that accommodate schedule-based demand, parking garages can operate lean and provide their customers with a faster parking experience. In our busy, schedule-driven society, time is money and drivers know it. With the I/O experts at ControlByWeb, our customer can focus on what they do best: innovating for their customers and for busy drivers nationwide.
