Emergency lighting automation - why more businesses are adopting it



Emergency lighting is a critical part of facilities management. Lighting controls have become commonplace in many commercial environments over the last few years as businesses have switched on to the cost and eco-benefits of energy efficiency.


Emergency luminaires are required in all commercial structures, and they have to be strategically placed to cover the entire building. Emergency lights are already linked to building alarm systems so those “bug-eye” lights can show the way to the nearest exit in the event of an emergency or power outage.


IoT offers a number of advantages for emergency lighting management. Integrating IoT controls into your lighting system makes it easier to remotely control your emergency lights. IoT also can be used to detect faults in your emergency lighting, just as you would detect an emergency luminaire malfunction, which makes repairs faster and less expensive.


Installing intelligent LED emergency luminaires equipped with wireless capabilities may be the future of building automation. Using a programmable, wireless emergency lighting ecosystem, you can connect an entire building into a single building management infrastructure allowing full control of your emergency lighting from anywhere in the world.


What is the purpose of emergency lighting?


Emergency lighting is required to kick in for a minimum of 90 minutes when alarm conditions are detected. If your Emergency Lighting isn't fit for purpose and readily available when it is needed to illuminate areas of your building, you will be in breach of the The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.
