Lighting Control or Systems


What is Lighting Control?

Today everyone is in a “green mode”.  We at Architectural Video Systems, Inc. have products that can save you money on your electric bill by installing Lighting Control Components or a System.  These offer  convience, security as well as energy savings.  Lighting control is the ability to regulate the level and quality of light in a given space for specific tasks or situationsControlling light properly not only enhances the experience, it helps to save energy by using light when and where it is needed.


The Benefits of Dimming

In the average home, most light controls are a simple on/off switch, rather that a dimmerThis means that whether it’s the middle of the day or it’s nighttime, your fixtures are putting out the exact same amount of light.  In fact, light switches are one of the few appliances that only have two settings - on and off.  Through dimming, users can control the quantity of light their fixtures provide to fit specific tasks, moods, or situations.  This not only improves the experience, but also saves wasted energy in the process.

Daylight Harvesting

In addition to managing electric light, regulating the amount of daylight that enters a space is an important aspect of light control.  By using shades in conjunction with dimmers, we can create the perfect balance between the two sources of light to save energy and create an inviting enviroment.


Total Light Control

True light control reaches further than shading and dimmers.  Light management systems and equipment can make lighting a vibrant and vital part of any space.  Daylight sensors, for example can automatically adjust shades and overhead light to maintain the perfect look throughout the day, while occupancy sensors can ensure that lights are never left on when a room is not in use. 


More sophisticated systems like the RadioRA 2 can store personalized settings for multiple lights, allowing you to completely tailor the lighting scheme in any room.  Selecting a scene is as simple as pressing a single button.  The system can also be programmed to transition between scenes at different times of the day.  If your are building a new home and want to incorporate lighting control at the front end.  We need to work with your architect/builder and electrical contractor to disign a system for you.
