Global market demand for intelligent controls highlighted | 29 June 2012
A study by Pike Research, entitled ‘Intelligent Lighting Controls for Commercial Buildings’, has found that there is global demand for intelligent controls within commercial properties.
Pike Research discovered that owners of properties within retail, hotels, office space and transport are after more intelligent control systems. They are particularly interested in sophisticated lighting controls; an industry which is said to have entered a strong period of growth.
Sacbee.com reported on the research, stating: ‘New technologies emerging in recent years have enabled a wide range of innovative strategies, from room-level intelligence of occupancy and daylight sensing to building-wide coordination of a fully network system.
‘These new strategies are beginning to gain broad acceptance by building owners and managers at the same time that building codes and regulations are increasing mandating greater efficiency in buildings.’
What’s more, it seems that the innovations in recent years surrounding wireless controls for lighting have helped increase demand – in addition to the more competitive prices being offered for dimmable/LED lights. With property investors likely wishing to make the most of their portfolio, it’s perhaps no surprise that advances in the lighting industry have caught the eyes of global property moguls.
In fact, Pike Research confirmed that more and more, property owners are beginning to accept technologies like daylight sensing systems and lighting networks that reach through entire buildings, Pikeresearch.com revealed.
