What functions and features should a set of easy-to-use office intelligent lighting systems have?

Although the track of intelligent lighting is not overcrowded, it has already been shaken. Aside from all kinds of technical data, let's talk about today, what are the functions and features of a good intelligent lighting system for office lighting applications.

Scenario capability

Scenarioization is undoubtedly the core value of lighting solutions. The indoor lighting design solves the problem of how the user uses the space. The luminaire design should also be a weapon for the specific application scenario and for the lighting design to solve the scene problem.

Picture: Inside the famous movie "her", it shows the amazing artificial intelligence interaction technology. At the same time, it is worth mentioning that the office lighting scene is very beautiful. The working mode, station lighting and overtime mode are all excellent lighting. design example. So excellent office lighting control systems should be able to meet the needs of matching these scenarios.

The development of lighting control technology has enriched the lighting scene in the same space. From the initial single demand (lighting) single scene (lighting and extinction), to the overall control of the loop, to the current single point control dimming color, from "lighting can only be a whole" to "using the light as a Point, you can arbitrarily re-establish the development of a lighting scene, which fits the application needs of single-space multi-purpose and multi-scene.

For office space, the typical scenes are nothing more than the following:

All normal office

a small number of people working or working overtime



Meeting or video conference

Celebration of major events (various, now speaking of humanized office environment, celebrating employee birthday is also considered one of the scenes)


Dimming is the proper meaning of lighting control. In the original concept, many people almost equated dimming with lighting control. Although it is wrong, it can be seen that this is a consensus and need not be said.

However, the range of dimming, and whether the dimming is smooth, and the compatibility of the dimming system, is a technical high ground for all control manufacturers.

People do not like mutations without psychological expectations, so there must be stepless dimming, so the smoothness of dimming is the key to the light environment experience of "although it is difficult to make it clear, but the body is very honest." Whether it is suitable or not, it is related to the experience of dimming.

Photo: Still the classic movie "her", the office's natural lighting and artificial light part, combined with a very fashionable color design, the combination of light and semi-transparent materials, is a classic of color emotion application, and light light is obviously is not enough.

As for the color, it is even more. In the LED era, everyone likes to take 16 million colors to say things. It sounds awkward, but in realizing such a variety of colors, in fact, everyone has no technical barriers. The barrier is that the research and application of human psychology and color experience, if it really develops into the office, needs to be rich and colorful, which will become the final point of the future experience.

Localized interaction: staff induction

The remote control is a great invention that essentially solves the problem of a localized interaction.

Imagine this scene: In the cold southern winter, before going to bed at night, you have to get up and go to the bedroom door to turn off the lights, which is really painful! To climb out of the already warm bed, feel the cold and cold inside the room. If your luminaire has a remote control, you can avoid this pain.

But the remote control is still not a satisfactory product. Just look around and see how many remote controls we have at home. It’s a hassle to store and find.

Therefore, the current intelligent control tries to put various controls on the smart phone, because the mobile phone has become a body organ of modern people, and it can be used at any time.

But by turning on the mobile app control, the future is still going to be revolutionized by technological advances. This can be seen from the development of the game.

The control of office lighting allows the luminaire to sense the duty of the personnel. It is also a problem that can be solved at present. It solves the problem of energy saving and specific needs, and it is the future that the luminaire can communicate with people through specific actions.

The desire for daylight:

Daylight induction, constant illumination management and daylight simulation

For thousands of years, human instinct has been longing for the darkness of fear and darkness, which is the genetic code that has been written into the human body system. The desire for daylight is also presupposed in human genes. So the functional electrical lighting design has been following and simulating daylight, trying to create a daylight experience. The effectual electrical lighting design also draws inspiration from the infinite changes of daylight.

Figure: The positive influence of sunlight on people's physiology. We have discussed it in many articles. It is not here. The office environment with sunlight is a guarantee for people's happiness. However, here is how the artificial light source should be different from the sun. The problem of the angle of incidence of the time is matched.

In modern office buildings, the use of large-scale glass curtain walls provides a possibility for people who are sitting in the office to have a natural light. But uncontrolled natural light is very likely to affect the daily work of the office, so modern office lighting for daylight applications has been trying to find a certain balance between utilization and control.

In office lighting, the basic requirement for the interaction between electrical lighting and daylight is to meet the following two points:

Daylight sensing and constant illumination management

Daylight simulation

The former solves the problem of interaction between daylight and electrical lighting, ensuring reasonable and comfortable brightness control throughout the space.

Figure: Through the daylight sensing probe and constant illumination sensor, ensure that the office side of the office makes full use of daylight, and coordinates with the brightness of the whole house to create a comfortable office environment while saving energy. (Image source network)

The latter satisfies people's desire for full-spectrum natural light, and it is best to do it in conjunction with the human body clock.

Figure: The desire for daylight has been written into the genes of the human body. Our biological clock is also directly affected by light. Simulating the full spectrum of natural light in an indoor environment, changing the natural light timing, and even simulating the natural light illumination is a future development direction, and is also a product that many lighting manufacturers are trying to overcome.

Quick installation

The degree of easy access to the product, the price is one aspect, and the other aspect is the installation.

For users and construction units, any intelligent design challenges engineering construction habits. It's very simple, because in the original project, there is no need to consider the smart part, that is, at the beginning of the design and at the beginning of the construction, there is no preparation in advance. Everything is pre-emptive, and this is also the reason why it is not easy for smart products to enter the engineering field. The period of early intervention is very long and there is a lot of preparation.

Therefore, if you suddenly want to increase demand and say that lighting is intelligent, it is best not to make too many changes to the original habits and existing design and construction.

Figure: The intelligent lighting control system (below) that does not require pre-wired installation is much lower than the intelligent lighting control system (top) that needs to be planned and routed in advance. In practice, the decision-making cost and construction cost are much lower. The availability of intelligent systems is good.

Settings interface: WYSIWYG

Even in the engineering field, modern people who have been educated by smartphones and many mobile applications with great design and experience can be very demanding on the interface. Don't try to explain your product expertise with control complexity. The current trend is that the more fools the better.

Figure: WYSIWYG visual interface design, greatly reducing user learning costs.

Figure: Back-end ease of operation and clear logic are also important.

If your interface is well designed, manipulating fools can be done with some of the most instinctive human actions (please refer to children's games and adult mobile games), then your product goes a step further.

Figure: In terms of user interaction, the iPad is undoubtedly a great product. Even children under the age of 3 can rely on the most instinctive touch action to successfully complete user interaction, and the user can learn quickly.

Ubiquitous but invisible

In the field of lighting, there is a saying that is widely known: seeing no light. For intelligent lighting systems, omnipresent but invisible words may be the highest praise.

It hides the emotional needs of the human heart:





No burden

No interference

For a modern person who is lazy and versatile, what better thing to do than "She takes care of me in a meticulous way but does nothing for her?"
