Helvar says it is ‘taking a revolutionary step in its offering’ with a new hybrid lighting control solution that combines its wireless Helvar ActiveAhead and wired Helvar Imagine solutions for ultimate design flexibility.
The international lighting technologies company, which ‘specialises’ in intelligent and energy-saving lighting solutions, says that the ability to select the most suitable lighting solution for each space is ‘paramount in ensuring optimal lighting conditions for occupants’.
CEO, Adel Hattab, said: “We at Helvar believe smart buildings can be smarter than they are today. At the same time, buildings should be better designed for the people using them, and more sustainable in the way that they operate. The challenge is to make sure buildings can adjust to occupants’ changing needs throughout their lifespan. Choosing technology shouldn't be confined to initial design, as this choice will determine whether buildings can adapt dynamically over time. We are very proud of our recent innovation — linking Helvar’s two industry-leading lighting control systems together to future-proof smart buildings around the world. Our hybrid solution sets a new standard for intelligent, scalable, and adaptive lighting control.”
Helvar says this hybrid lighting advancement ‘empowers designers, consultants, and specifiers to utilise its entire lighting control offering, ensuring adaptability for future needs through unparalleled system flexibility’.
Matti Vesterinen, director, Wireless, added: “Hybrid lighting controls are not merely a fusion of wired and wireless; they represent a paradigm shift in the lighting industry. Helvar’s hybrid lighting controls seamlessly combine the best of both worlds — the wireless expandability and simplicity of Helvar ActiveAhead, and the immense scalability and flexibility of wired Helvar Imagine solutions. This integration opens the doors to limitless design possibilities, and ensures that the technology powering our spaces evolves alongside our ever-changing needs."
As lighting sensors are typically the densest sensor network in a building, the lighting specialist says that intelligent lighting can offer further valuable building insights such as real-time occupancy and energy data, leading to an improved understanding of how to optimise spaces. Thet Oo, director, Wired, at Helvar, explained: “By connecting with Helvar Insights, Helvar adds an additional layer of intelligence to its lighting control solutions. Refined data and valuable insights can then be utilised for seamless interaction with other building systems.”
