How a smart Emergency Lighting System can enhance your building, making it safer

The world we live in is changing as a result of the Internet of Things (IoT). In order to understand precisely how we interact with products, services, and our environments, we are currently connecting and monitoring complex streams of data.

One major advantage is that having access to such powerful technology can enable improved safety standards because people can now remotely install, manage, and operate entire emergency lighting systems with the click of a button, or the touch of a screen.

Emergency lighting is crucial in both residential and commercial structures for a safe exit during an unplanned emergency. Such fittings serve as a vital fail-safe and guaranteed source of safe lighting in situations where an emergency evacuation may be necessary.

Let's look at the top 3 benefits of implementing smart Emergency Lighting into your workplace below:

1. Improved safety

In the commercial and industrial sectors, emergency lighting plays a crucial and life-saving part of safeguarding your workplace. Emergency lighting will offer illumination in the event of a main power supply breakdown for whatever cause, allowing occupants to safely exit the building by providing clear directions to the nearest safety exit route..

Therefore, any emergency lighting employed for serious situations must be efficient and fit for purpose. Emergency lighting must be properly maintained and tested on a regular basis in order to be effective too. Intelligent or "smart" emergency lighting can offer even more reliability and clarity as they can identify whether the issue is with the battery, light source, or charger from the dashboard overview.

2. Self charging capabilities

With any smart emergency lighting there will, in most cases, be a rechargeable battery that is included within. This meaning that outlets are able to charge when the main power source is there, and lighting turns on automatically when the main power supply is not present.

An excellent self-charging feature on intelligent emergency lighting systems makes sure the battery doesn't overcharge while still providing an adequate illumination source.

3. Self testing capabilities

An autonomous self-testing function is a characteristic of an intelligent emergency lighting system. They have a microprocessor chip inside that can be configured to carry out several tests to ensure that the backup battery and bulb are operating as they should.

This function eliminates the requirement for manual testing of an emergency lighting system, reducing the possibility of human error greatly. Although normal site upkeep is still necessary, this reduces the amount of time needed to carry out routine testing.
