Sensor Switch Adds Scene Controller to nLight System

February 9, 2009

The versatile device cost-effectively integrates occupancy-based, daylight-based, time-based, and manual control methods. Facility managers can install one comprehensive system without the limitations of centrally hardwired equipment.

WALLINGFORD, CT /BUSINESS WIRE/ -- Sensor Switch, an industry leader in lighting-control products and innovation, has added a WallPod Scene Controller to its revolutionary nLight Control System. The Scene Controller is a single-gang, low-voltage device that provides a convenient method of selecting one of four custom lighting control scenes for a room. Unlike most scene controllers that adjust only on/off and dim settings, the scenes run by the nLight WallPod Scene Controller can contain any of a multitude of settings available for the nLight devices within its zone.

For example, besides adjusting the dim level of a room, an nLight scene could also adjust the room's occupancy sensor time delays, change the photocell set point, and/or disable all sensor indicator LEDs. In addition to initiating a local scene to be run, any of the WallPod Scene Controller's buttons can be programmed to function as an on/off switch, activate a remote global profile, or signal an occupancy time delay sweep.

nLight is the "first lighting control system to cost-effectively integrate occupancy-based, daylight-based, time-based, and manual control methods." With nLight, facility managers install one comprehensive system without the limitations of centrally hardwired equipment. Compared with traditional control systems, nLight delivers increased energy savings and occupant convenience with lower equipment and installation costs, providing a quick return on investment.

Since its founding in 1987, Sensor Switch has been an industry leader in lighting control innovations, focusing on engineering-advanced products and technology that cost-effectively delivers energy efficiency, as well as convenience. Our experience and wide breadth of occupancy sensors, daylighting controls, and our nLight control system ensure we can provide reliable solutions for any application or building type. All Sensor Switch products are proudly engineered and manufactured in the U.S. at the company headquarters in Wallingford, CT.
