TLC Integration has developed and patented an integrated control systems, here in Reno, NV, which regulates and optimizes a building’s environment by integrating lighting, power and temperature controls into one central automation unit that is managed via computer. This system can also be accessed remotely via the internet.
Additional components have the ability to provide stable, surge-free power which protects costly equipment. It also has the capability to see if someone was in a room or building, as well as precisely when and where. These components can recommend installation and control of efficient electric lighting when needed.
Our integrated control system turns off the lights when a room is unoccupied
The system works most efficiently in conjunction with additional elements provided by TLC, such as automated skylights to provide daylighting light transitions, and LED lights are the most energy efficient lighting to date.
TLC Integration Systems Key Elements
Light Harvesting -Utilizes available sunlight through daylighting systems to fulfill the light level requirements. Electric light can augment light levels only when necessary.
Occupancy Sensing -Prevents the use of electric lighting when a space is unoccupied.
Time-Of-Use – Utilizes time of day scheduling for the opportunity to change the lighting level for different functions. For example, a room may be set to provide 50-foot candles when occupied; however, only 25-foot candles are necessary for unoccupied or custodial functions.
Solar Powered Sun Shade Control -With the use of a motorized shade and shade control switch, the end user has the ability to turn off the sunlight when necessary and the TLC Integration Systems Panel can then re-open the shade when light is required.
Light Level Control – This controls electric lights through dimming applications.
Daylighting -A natural lighting system that brings in full-spectrum, natural daylight to a building’s interior. It provides maximum color perception, enhances object definition and is easier on the eyes. Daylighting is also cooler, containing half as much heat per unit of illumination as artificial light sources.
