WattStopper has added network capability to its self-configuring Digital Lighting Management (DLM) lighting control product line, enabling remote management of lighting controls throughout a floor, a building or an entire campus. This major product line expansion also includes two new DLM digital photosensors for automatically switching or dimming up to three zones of lighting in daylit areas, new DLM lighting control panels, and powerful new dimming features for DLM wall switches. Economically priced DLM controls generate the highest return on investment of any building-wide lighting control system.
Digital Lighting Management is a distributed control system that automatically maximizes lighting energy efficiency within each controlled space. A DLM local network can include room controllers, occupancy sensors, personal controls, daylighting sensors and interfaces. Now, each local network can be equipped with a BACnet-compatible network bridge for remote control by a building automation system (BAS) or a browser-based user interface on a PC, PDA or smartphone. Remote control options include the ability to change sensor settings and system parameters, establish normal and after hours schedules and monitor power consumption of lighting and plug loads in real time.
WattStopper’s open protocol network solution is both rugged and easy to implement, as it builds on the bottom up architecture of automatically configured local networks. This design minimizes setup time and ensures that the controls will continue to operate even if the network connection is disrupted. System integrators can add DLM to existing building networks without the need to run additional wiring, and can address devices as familiar BACnet objects.
The addition of lighting control panels, along with new daylighting and dimming solutions, ensures that DLM offers the flexibility to address the control needs of all types of spaces throughout a commercial facility.
