ECs: Take Control of Your Renovation Lighting Control Installations


“Efficient and effective” is any busy electrical contractor’s mantra.

Especially these days, when chronic labor shortages combined with high demand for LED retrofits has contractors desperate to get the job done – fast – and without time and revenue killing callbacks to fix a “not-right-the-first-time” installation.

For lighting control systems to be “efficient and effective,” they need to be easily installed (that means staying below the ceiling), meet all relevant codes, and work seamlessly from the moment they’re activated – so you can move to the next job.

That’s why we created nLight AIR, a secure, high-performance wireless lighting control solution that connects indoor lighting systems on one platform. It’s especially well-suited for spaces – like older buildings or hospitals -- where wiring is cost prohibitive and time consuming, or for retrofits where running wires can be complex.

Just look at all you get with the complete nLight AIR package:

  • nLight® AIR-enabled LED luminaires (equipped with eldoLED® LED drivers). Each luminaire comes with a multi-function sensor that detects and shares motion and daylight data via integrated radios. And since it’s factory integrated and tested, the nLight AIR platform is deployed automatically with each installed luminaire.
  • Wireless battery powered wall switches, which can be remotely managed via the CLAIRITY™ app. Batteries used in the rPODB switches are designed to last for 10 years under normal usage and conditions.
  • A mobile configuration app, CLAIRITY, for quick and easy startup. The app enables complete configuration of nLight AIR devices, with the ability to use default or customized occupancy and daylight sensor settings, wall switch configuration and sequence of operations.

nLight AIR marks a big step forward in lighting control systems. In the past, commercial lighting integration could be difficult, as it required the contractor to connect disparate systems, software and networks. Naturally, that could give contractors (and their clients) lots of headaches, with lengthy and difficult installations and frequent maintenance calls.

But now, installation is as easy as disconnecting line voltage from the old fixture and connecting line voltage to the new LED fixtures, since they have embedded sensors.

A key thing to remember is that because nLight AIR systems are deployed using the building's existing wiring, it reduces your installation costs, keeps your crew beneath the ceiling plane -- and accelerates payback for the building owner/manager.

And since nLight AIR is A+ Certified, you can confidently select and implement the system with the realization that it will be both compatible and chromatically consistent.

What could be better than that?
