Light management application and function

Motivating factors for planning, installing and applying light management systems are as varied in each individual case as the electronic systems available on the market. Common reasons are:

  • an increase in lighting comfort,

  • lighting customisation,

  • multifunctional rooms, adaptation of light to lighting tasks,

  • energy savings,

  • health promotion,

  • an increase in efficiency, and

  • compliance with applicable rules and regulations.

To achieve the respective targets, it is important to select the matching functionalities. These in turn depend on the utilised technologies to a great extent. In terms of decision making, it is therefore important to consider the framework of application-specific user needs as well as the technical details of the electronic components. This introductory section is therefore intended to outline the referenced framework while subsequent sections (chapter  ff.) describe aspects of technical solutions.
