Dim Down Sensor Selection Guide
For WBS Technology Emergency and Non-emergency lighting
WBS dim down sensors can save up to 80% off your electricity bill by dimming down the lights in common areas to 20% brightness when no one is around. This is achieved by installing smart wireless sensors in common area lighting to detect movement triggering the lights to illuminate to 100% brightness.
WBS dim down energy-saving sensor solutions can be categorised by these three types:
Light fittings located at points of entries are fitted with transmitters to detect movement and wirelessly trigger the light fittings in the vicinity with wireless receivers to illuminate. This solution is the most commonly used solution as it provides the highest level of pathway visibility for tenants/pedestrians.
2. Standalone Dim Down Sensor Solution:
Standalone dim down sensors detect movement and dim down independently.
- Small areas without daylight
- Small storage areas without daylight
- 1-2 car garages without daylight
3. Standalone Dim Down with Day Light Sensor Solution:
Standalone dim down sensors with daylight sensors detect the amount of light in the area, enabling them to turn off completely when enough daylight is illuminating the area. Once it’s dark, the light operates at 20% brightness when no one is around and at 100% brightness once someone enters the area.
- Fire stairs with daylight
- Corridors with daylight
- Common areas with daylight
- Small areas with daylight
