If you don't control both the lights and the shades,
you're only getting half the benefit.

  • Protection from heat and glare.
  • Measurable energy savings.
  • An open architecture that permits the use of any industry-standard component (dimmable ballast, lighting sensor, or occupancy sensor).
  • Easy and cost-effective configuration.

Seven Smart Strategies

SolarTrac: Automatically adjusts roller shades to adapt to sun and sky conditions.

Occupancy Control: Automatically turns off fixtures when they're not needed.

Smart Time Scheduling: Switches or dims lights for any resolution, from a whole floor to an individual light fixture.

Daylight Harvesting: Automatically dims artificial lights to take advantage of natural sunlight.

Task Tuning: Eliminates wasted energy by setting light levels to suit a particular workspace.

Personal Control: Controls light levels through a web browser or desktop software.

Variable Load Shedding: Automatically sheds lighting loads to respond to utility costs or demand-response signals.
