Lighting Control Plan Helps Company Achieve Maximum Savings
When engineering firm Glumac moved into a new building it made a point of enacting a lighting control practice that not only saved it money, but that improved its workspace for its employees. This was achieved by using a combination of Lutron's wireless Quantum Total Light Management system allowing switches, photocells, and vacancy/occupancy sensors to be placed anywhere in just seconds and Lutron's Hyperion solar-adaptive automated window shade system which brings outside daylight levels of up to 10,000 foot-candles down to a pleasant 25 foot-candles indoors and prevents glare.
