Lighting Automation

Lighting Automation is the discipline of creating automated changes in lighting levels to affect mood, emphasize architecture, illuminate art, and influence action. Automated lighting from Vantage can be described like the rising or setting of the sun. As light gradually, imperceptibly moves across the landscape our senses are heightened and we see earth with new perspective.

Architects and lighting designers have long understood the power of light and its ability to define, highlight, and transform architecture. To manipulate light in such a way as to simultaneously evoke subtlety and complexity requires a serious understanding of light.

Lighting automation from Vantage provides professional designers with the tools to fully implement their designs and users with the full enjoyment of their luxury spaces.

LED Lighting Control

LED lighting offers many advantages over traditional lighting methods for certain applications. LED lighting offers energy efficiency, longer service lives, and increased durability over incandescent lighting. LED lighting may also provide design capabilities that are difficult to accomplish using incandescent or compact fluorescent lighting including directional distribution of light, dimming without color change and a broad range of color availability. For these and other reasons, LED lighting is becoming more common in a variety of luxury living spaces. Selecting the proper dimming system for LED lighting control is critical for customer satisfaction.

Why the recent increase in the use of LED lamps?

Perhaps their greatest impact is in the dramatic color effects enabled by this digital and dynamic lighting tool. But great progress has also been made in producing brilliant white lighting effects as well. Because they're highly efficient, long lasting, durable and inherently controllable, LED’s are enabling both new and traditional applications of light. LED lighting systems already illuminate famous buildings, bridges, retail shops, television studios, theater stages, hotels, casinos, hospitals, restaurants and celebrity-filled nightclubs around the world. For example, the Empire State Building is frequently illuminated in red, gren or blue LED lights to commemorate holidays or special events.

Why is LED Lighting Control Important?

As LED lighting usage grows and LED sources expand from accent lighting into general illumination, it is more crucial than ever that LED light bulbs are dimmable and controllable. In the home, at a minimum, consumers expect their light source to act like an incandescent bulb, which means it is fully dimmable. In addition they increasingly expect the full spectrum of color control. Commercially, dimmable lights are critical for both energy savings and increased productivity. Marine applications rely on LEDs to keep the use of generated power to a minimum.

Dimming products must support LED dimming performance that meets or exceeds customer's expectations throughout the complete architectural dimming and color range.
