As technology develops, control systems need to evolve to suit new expectations. The rise of smart phones has meant that control companies have had to introduce applications for such devices in order to remain ahead of the curve. As such, Cooper Controls has introduced a new range of smart phone applications alongside the new iLight EG2 Ethernet Gateway for control of residential, commercial and hospitality lighting systems using both wired and wireless network devices.


The iLight lighting network allows smart phones and tablets to automatically synchronise with the system, so that the most up-to-date information is always available. Users can rest assured that their network is secure thanks to password protection, and multiple users are able to use the same network with varying permissions. Another great aspect of the system is that the EG2’s built-in web server is great for anyone who is always on the go. Network control is possible from any computer, meaning that users can remotely operate the controls and engineers are also able to quickly access the iLight network without always needing


to be onsite – meaning the inconvenience of any maintenance is greatly reduced. Anyone interested in trialing the network can download a free of charge demo from the iTunes App Store.


DANLERS is one of many companies


that are tackling the reduction of energy costs for end users. The company’s Passive Infra-red occupancy switches have recently been used in a number of installations, with the PIR ceiling surface- mounted plug-ins significantly reducing energy bills and carbon emissions. For one recent project, DANLERS


products were specified by contractor Procomm Site Services, who were delighted with their potential; “It was important for Procomm to identify potential energy savings. Not only do DANLERS PIR controls offer significant energy savings to our clients, but, if replacement sensors are required, the product’s split installation system enables sensors to be quickly and easily installed without specialist installers, saving time and money”. Harvard Engineering is also putting


energy efficiency at the forefront of many of its products, and has recently teamed up with LED traffic signs manufacturer


One2See Signs to launch a LeafNut controlled system. This provides local authorities with the ability to control and monitor internally illuminated LED signs. The system increases energy savings, and signs can be turned on and off by the authority. LeafNut’s unique reporting feature accurately predicts lamp failure, further reducing costs associated with unexpected maintenance disruption. The system has been trialed by


Westminster City Council, where LeafNut was originally installed to manage the street lighting infrastructure. Following the initial success of the trial, Westminster chose to roll out the new system across other areas of the City, including Arlington Street, Pall Mall and Carlisle Street. Surrey County Council has also introduced the LeafNut system,
