Acuity Brands offers solutions designed to exceed your imagination for performance, outcomes and ROI. We can bring lighting and HVAC under one common, fully configurable control platform — future-proofed to grow and adapt as needed.
For most buildings, HVAC and lighting are the two biggest energy users. Making campus buildings more energy efficient — through campus lighting controls and heating/cooling controls — can have a clear, positive impact on a university’s bottom line. Energy management strategies implemented through a unified, total building management system help to maximize savings.
Benefits of our total building management solutions include:
Advancements in technology make it easy to create a connected campus that leverages the internet of things (IoT). If you only need lighting control (now), systems exist that allow you to address lighting alone, such as automatic dimming or on/off with occupancy sensing. However, it’s best to choose a control system that is “future-proofed” to enable functionality expansion for control of other building systems, such as HVAC. The best control systems even make it simple to monitor usage and performance for real-time review and analysis.
