Go Green With Technology

Automated Shades

Electric smart shades can help lower cooling costs in the summer and heating costs in the winter. Which means, depending on the season, you could save 10% - 30% on heating and cooling costs.*

Shades help increase privacy and enhance security - while protecting furniture, fine art, rungs, and wood surfaces from harmful UV rays. This will extend the life of these items, saving more money.

Dimmers

Every time you dim the lights, you save energy. For example dimming the light by 25% saves about 20% of electricity and the bulbs will last longer too; adding to the savings.

* Actual savings may vary depending on use and application. Stated savings based on dimming (4) 75W incandescent reflector lamps (rated at 1500 hrs each, costing $1.75 per lamp or 3000 hour halogen bulbs costing $3.35 per lamp) by 50% (perceived light level corresponding to 40% reduction in power level) for 5 hrs per day with electricity cost of $0.104/kWh.

Occupancy / Vacancy Sensors

An occupancy/vacancy sensor turns lights on and off automatically based on whether someone is in a room or not; saving up to 20% lighting energy.* Therefore, a sensor is ideal for rooms where lights are left on unintentionally, such as a child's room or a break room.

Daylight Sensors

Daylight sensors automatically dim the lights when there is enough daylight coming into a room.

Temperature Control

Temperature Control helps save on heating and cooling costs. Setting back the temperature when a room is unoccupied can help you save up to 16% or more*

Small Appliances

Many electronics, such as A/V equipment, computers, and TVs continue to pull electricity even when they are turned off. This standby power can amount to up to 10% of a building's electricity usage.
