A component of building energy efficiency is the integration of Legrand’s Wattstopper Digital Lighting Management (DLM) system. DLM is a distributed control system that automatically maximizes lighting levels and energy efficiency throughout a building.
Simplicity: The DLM technology platform provides control infrastructure at every switch, outlet and lighting load for energy performance. Built on open standards, DLM makes control points accessible in real time, from anywhere in the world. Engineered for customers from designers to installers to end users, DLM is a solution delivering the customer experience on the road to a net zero future.
Efficiency: Today’s lighting management systems include room controllers, occupancy and vacancy sensors, switches, daylighting sensors, dimmers, plug load controls, lighting control panels and integration capabilities that provide control of dimmed and switched loads. A DLM system provides real-time data on energy usage, which can be adjusted for optimization and efficiency.
Flexibility: An advantage of DLM is its building block architecture and open platform system that allows for integration with other systems. There are no wire nuts, strippers, or pliers needed. Once the products are installed, it takes just a couple of minutes to connect all the devices. When a controller is connected to a switch and a room sensor, the system knows what it’s connected to, how to behave, and configures itself with best practices developed by Wattstopper.
Scalability: DLM can be used for stand-alone control of individual building spaces, or for centralized control of a floor, a building, or an entire campus that is also BACnet protocol compatible. BACnet is a communications protocol for building automation and control networks for applications such as heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning control (HVAC), lighting control, access control, and fire detection systems and their associated equipment.
