As we get increasingly aware of the need to reduce our power consumption, the use of LED lighting and lighting control systems has become a very popular means to do this.

However, the use of LED lighting indoors during daylight hours means that unnecessary and wasteful consumption continues to exist. This is especially true in corporate environments where workspaces need to have to have a higher level of light availability during these hours. As a result organisations are now looking to further reduce the use of artificial lighting (and therefore power consumption), by making optimal use of natural lighting during daylight hours.

Lutron’s GRAFIK Eye QS is a system that provides an easy and efficient way to control both electric light and daylight – by adjusting lights and shades for any task or activity at the touch of a button. Sensors attached to the system can allow it to adjust the shades and lighting to utilise available illumination and reduce consumption.

Some key features of the Lutron GRAFIK Eye QS Main Unit are:

Control up to 16 lighting zones and up to 3 shade zones in conference rooms, restaurants, home theaters, classrooms, and more
Directly compatible with occupancy/vacancy and daylight sensors to make energy savings easy. Works as a single room control or part of a larger light control solution.
GRAFIK Eye QS with EcoSystem® allows for direct control of Lutron digital fluorescent ballasts and LED drivers with no interface
Connect Lutron shades directly to GRAFIK Eye QS main unit for seamless integration of daylight.   Adjust shades and lights separately or simultaneously.
