How to design an automatic lighting control system:


Automated lighting control can be designed in several different ways for a kitchen workspace. LIMENTE SMART SENSOR 511 turns on the lights whenever light is needed. The lights stay on as long as you stay within the sensor’s detection distance. The detection distance is, on average, 1-2 m, but depends on the installation environment and the detected movement. The lights turn off with a small delay to make sure lights don’t turn on and off unnecessarily. In a larger kitchen, it’s advisable to use several sensors to ensure a sufficient detection distance. You can connect up to four PIR presence detectors to one LIMENTE SMART SENSOR 511 system.

The lighting in a kitchen workspace can also be automated to respond to a wave of a hand. LIMENTE SMART SENSOR 512 reacts to hand movements under the sensor. Move your hand under the sensor and the lights will turn on or off, or even brighten and dim, respectively. The small sensor can installed, for example, in the bottom of an upper cabinet.

Automatic lighting control can also be used in, e.g., a breakfast cabinet. The lights turn on automatically when the cabinet doors are opened. Use LIMENTE SMART SENSOR 512 to implement automatic lighting control in your breakfast cabinet. The sensor can be used as a door switch, so the system turns on the breakfast cabinet lights when the door is opened and light is needed.The lights stay on as long as the cabinet door is open.
