About Lighting Controls
Lighting is a system, with the light source as one component. While ceratin types of controls have always been used, they are becoming a larger consideration in the commercial market.
Controls are important for overall energy efficiency, but the transition to LED has not been easy. Many already-installed controls are incompatible with LED, so any switch requires both the lamp or fixturea and the control system to be reevaluated.
Dimmers are ubiquitous in both commercial and residential settings. They contribute to a change of mood, and are important for energy efficiency. Not all dimmers are compatible with LED or fluorescent/CFL technology, which is why many LED bulbs and fixtures have dimmer compatibility lists.
Fan Speed Controls
We carry a full line of fan speed controls in both slide and rotary types. These can be used for variable fan speeds. Some of our fan speed controls can also be used to control the light source.
Light switches are one of the most common electrical components, and one that everyone uses on a daily basis. We have a large number of variations of the common light switch, from decorative ones to commercial grade, offered in a wide variety of colors and options.
Occupancy sensors are growing in popularity. They turn light sources on and off based on movement of people in the room. They are common in bathrooms and utility rooms in commercial buildings that may not get a lot of traffic. Why ask people to flip a switch when they don't know when the next person will enter the room? Occupancy sensors are great for these types of areas.
Photocontrols can turn a light fixture on or off based on the amount of daylight present. With low levels of outside light, the fixtures are turned on. Not all photocontrols are compatible with LED, however.
Timers can be set to turn light sources on and off depending on time of day. They can work with one light or entire systems. There are a number of types of time controls, from mechanical to electromechanical to entirely digital.
Wallplates are another extremely common form of electrical component. While they do not directly control the light source, they are required for making the control look complete. They cut off access to the interior of walls, increasing safety and security. We carry a wide variety of wallplates, from emergency use plates to stainless steel to Lexan, all in a range of gangs and types.
