Scolmore’s Click Smart control system halves the installation cost for trade association

When Penicuik-based SELECT, the Scottish trade association for electrical contractors in Scotland, needed to update its 10-year-old building management system, it was facing a substantial outlay. But Scolmore came to the rescue with its Click Smart RF Wireless Control System.

Click Smart RF Wireless Control System was installed with little disruption to the original electrical system, providing an adaptable means to control lighting. The Click Smart home automation system suits


refurbishment and new build projects and can be used to update an existing wiring system to provide added security, energy saving, comfort and control. It offers simple and flexible installation and

easy programming, with its unique one touch centralised control panel allowing lighting, shutters, blinds, gates, latches and garage doors to be set and adjusted. The RF system comprises wireless transmitters,

receivers and combined units. No cables or wall cutting is required as the receivers can be installed behind light fittings or into installation

oming in at around 50% less than SELECT’s original budget, Scolmore’s

boxes and the transmitters are powered by battery.

All lighting in the training

centre, boardroom, conference rooms, canteen, rest rooms and reception area at SELECT is now controlled using JA-83P PIR sensors, switching via a RFSA-66M 6-channel multifunction switch receiver in the plant room. Signal has been boosted using RFRP-20/B

signal repeaters around the site. The RF Touch control panel is mounted on the wall in reception to give a general overview and to act as a central control point for the system. Installer, James McCartan of John Noble

Electrical Contractors Ltd, said: “The management team at SELECT were faced with a potentially significant expense to replace the original smart system – installed more than 10 years ago – with

an updated version, so to be able to deliver a solution that came in at 50% under the planned budget was a great result all round.” John McGhee, SELECT Head of Resources, said:

“The new system has saved us money on the initial significant installation cost, and in addition we will also benefit from ongoing savings with a more cost- and energy-efficient system.” TV venue throws down the lighting control gauntlet to CPE

One of the last working Victorian Potteries in the UK, famed as the venue for BBC Two’s Great Pottery Throw Down, has a new lease of life following a refurbishment which included new lighting controls from CP Electronics.

centre of excellence, providing training and education to the community, with a particular emphasis on traditional British craſtsmanship. With the use of a Prince’s Regeneration Trust grant, the building has become a community hub incorporating the old traditional Burleigh pottery built in 1888, with a series of business support and educational units. A key requirement of the project was to grant building managers greater


control over energy consumption. Integral to this was the installation of CP’s standalone presence detectors. Consulting engineers at E3 cited CP Electronics as a preferred provider of lighting control in its performance specification, to satisfy the requirement for presence and absence detection throughout the building. A variety of passive infrared (PIR) and microwave presence detectors are being used – including CP’s high bay PIR detectors and compact flush mounted microwave detectors which sense movement in multiple areas of the building, activating the lighting accordingly. The intuitive nature of CP’s lighting controls led to them being

referenced in the performance specification for this job. Due to the ageing facility, contractors had to ensure they remained compliant with building regulations and with such a complex mechanical brief, all parties involved in the project wanted to make the electrical stage as simple as possible.

The transformation of Middleport Pottery included energy saving presence detectors from CP Electronics.

Hugh Griffiths, who oversaw the mechanical design of the

refurbishment for E3, said: “We wanted to have a pragmatic lighting control solution installed in the building to enable energy savings over time. We regularly specify CP’s products due to the simplicity and reliability they bring to complex jobs of this nature. “Their products are designed to be discrete and blend into the authentic

interior of the building, while providing an excellent level of control for building and facilities managers.”
