How Luminetworx POE LED lighting works. Power over Ethernet (PoE) LEDs use cost-effective Ethernet cables to deliver power from a POE switch to power the LED light fixture. By using networking equipment for your lighting system, you experience major installation cost reductions and ongoing energy savings. Because PoE LED lighting runs on the network, it can be integrated with other technology systems – both new and existing – to transmit data about occupancy, climate, traffic patterns, etc.
Network Lighting Control
PoE allows each LED light fixture in your facility to act as a standard plug-and-play device (using an RJ45 connector) with its own individually addressable IP address – no electrician is needed for installation. Each fixture can be independently controlled and managed remotely through the Wireless network. Sensors in the POE LED network create a truly smart lighting system that collects information about the environment and communicates it back to a cloud controller so that adjustments can be made in real time.
Because PoE LED lighting is connected to your network, it can integrate with other building systems, like your emergency and exit lighting. If a fire alarm inside your facility is pulled, the lighting system can be designed to automatically illuminate the pathways leading toward the closest and safest exit. Because all Luminetworx POE LED lighting systems are connected to a UPS (long life battery backup system) Based upon the events occurring inside the building, the illuminated pathways can change in real time to communicate up-to-date exit information and remain lit for more than 120 minutes in the event of a power outage. In place of a specialized, secondary emergency lighting system, Luminetworx PoE LEDs can provide important emergency lighting during a power outage.
Color Temperature Control
The Luminetworx PoE LED lighting system allows for color-temperature adjustments. From warm to neutral to cool – adjustments can be made with the simple push of a button. This can provide greater flexibility in work areas, increase occupant satisfaction, improve visual comfort and productivity. Additionally it can help you achieve nearly any color of white for the ambiance you’re looking for. Additionally the Luminetworx POE LED lighting system can be placed into Circadian Rhythm mode to allow the physical, mental, and behavioral changes that follow a daily cycle. People respond primarily to light and darkness in an organism’s environment. Sleeping at night and being awake during the day is an example of a light-related circadian rhythm. Circadian rhythms are found in most living things, including animals, plants, and many tiny microbes. The study of circadian rhythms is called chronobiology. By implementing Circadian Rhythm in the Luminetworx POE LED lighting system in adult care and hospital environments can have profound results on the health of the patient.
Third Party Integrations
By integrating the Luminetworx PoE LED lighting systems with your AV and security/life safety systems, you can reach a whole new level of control and customization. In conference rooms and boardrooms, lighting levels can automatically adjust based on what’s happening inside (a videoconference, use of a projector, etc.). And room users can set individual lighting preferences so the room can adjust lights accordingly when that user books the space. When integrated with fire and security systems, lights can come on or turn off in certain areas based upon activity and alerts. The Luminetworx PoE LED lighting system sensors can also help identify the location of occupants during an emergency.
LEDs are much more efficient than other types of lighting, which reduces your energy costs from the very start. But the PoE LED lighting system is even more energy efficient, minimizing the inefficient power-conversion stages that occur in a traditional AC-powered environment for LED lights. So in order to better understand how space is being used, energy consumption per fixture can be monitored, along with lighting energy usage on specific floors or certain areas of a building. Integrated sensors can further control lighting expenses by dimming lamps during certain times of day, or turning them on and off according to occupancy levels or daily schedules.
Low voltage power from a PoE switch is transmitted over existing Ethernet cables to operate the led lights (PoE LED Lighting). And while high volumes of data are sent and collected to allow for management of the lighting system. Integrating an LV Energy Systems (Luminetworx) connected lighting system using Power over Ethernet (PoE) technology into the IoT is an ideal way to meet sustainability goals and realize financial savings from space optimization and employee productivity.
