Green Solutions

Energy Code Compliance

ILLUMRA products facilitate compliance with California Title 24 and ASHRAE 90.1 Daylighting and motion sensors are designed to save energy by turning down lights automatically.

The Salt Lake City International Center office building implemented required motion sensors using ILLUMRA products.

Material Savings

ILLUMRA Self-powered Wireless Controls are environmentally friendly because they reduce the amount of materials used during electrical installations for renovations and new construction.

ILLUMRA reduces the need for the following materials:

  • copper wire
  • dry wall
  • switch boxes
  • conduit

The controls operate without batteries, thus saving the materials, energy, and waste from battery manufacturing and disposal. Material savings is an important part of completing a green electrical installation and self-powered wireless controls help to accomplish that goal.

A common electrical project where materials can be reduced is installing a new light switch in an existing home or building. In the past, a job like this required fishing wires through the wall, installing conduit, or tearing a hole into the wall and fixing the hole afterwards. All of these techniques require extra materials, special tools and time; all of this can be avoided through the use of self-powered wireless technology.

Energy Savings

Wireless controls can be placed virtually anywhere and control any device that is within range. This flexibility opens up the opportunity for energy savings that was not available in the past.

To accomplish energy savings in an existing home or building, a system of self-powered wireless controls can be installed to decrease the amount of energy used from lights, HVAC units, and devices that draw standby power.

Self-powered wireless motion sensors can be used to turn lights and other devices off when a room is unoccupied. Self-powered wireless temperature sensors can be used to set heating or air conditioning to an "economy" setting. A master switch can be used to stop current from entering devices that draw standby power and easily ensure lights, fans, and other devices are off when exiting.

Whatever the application, ILLUMRA Self-powered Wireless Controls make it easy to implement a cost-saving energy mangement system.
