A BRIGHTER FUTURE


Anthony Parkinson of Ansell Lighting, explains why smart lighting can have a positive impact on the health and wellbeing of employees.


As many workers gradually make their return to the office environment, what has become clear is that employers have had to reimagine the role of the office in the lives of their employees. This change in attitude encompasses both how often the employee is expected to be in the office, but also how the office is designed and configured to create a safe and productive working environment. A crucial and sensitive part of reintegrating employees into the office environments is to safeguard their mental health. Office design and layout is an integral part of this process.

Not every office space will be occupied all the time and, if it is, it is unlikely to be at full capacity. Enabling lighting systems to be automated and well planned, the functionality offered by smart lighting is in tune with those changing needs. The technology offers businesses optimum control over energy use and huge cost saving benefits.


Ideal for use in public and commercial buildings, industrial spaces, hospitals and schools as well as in outdoor areas such as pedestrian underpasses and car parks – the benefits of smart lighting will be felt anywhere where lighting requirements change with the time of day and according to the movement of its users.


One of the key benefits of automated systems such as OCTO is that it eliminates reliance on human intervention and offers FMs complete control over lighting settings at the touch of a button. The time lighting is in operation, the output level the luminaires are set to, the colour temperature and the different ‘scenes’ or combinations of lamps in use can all be fixed according to specific requirements. Whilst the installation of intuitive motion sensors as well as presence and absence detection
