New sensor analyzes the color temperature of ambient light and directs indoor lighting to automatically match the detected color
Rockleigh, NJ – May 3, 2018 – Crestron, a global leader in commercial lighting control technology, announced today that it will unveil SolarSync (GLS-LCCT), its new daylight sensor with correlated color temperature (CCT) and a luminous intensity meter, at LightFair® International 2018, booth #3012. The world’s largest architectural and commercial lighting trade show and conference, LightFair will be taking place at McCormick Place, Chicago, IL, May 8 – 10.
SolarSync was designed to analyze the color temperature of the ambient light and direct the indoor lighting to automatically match the detected color when mounted outdoors or in an area exposed to plenty of natural light. This innovative sensor can drive indoor lighting to match the color and intensity of the sunlight throughout the day, or create artistic lighting scenes that make midnight feel like a sunny afternoon. SolarSync also has manual mode or inclement weather dead band settings to maximize the best lighting effect at all times with no effort.
“Tunable white has many benefits that have been directly linked to our health and productivity, and the idea of having an artificial light source to re-create the natural light has proven effects,” said Bill Schafer, Executive Sales Director, Crestron Commercial Lighting Control. “However, manual control has proven ineffective. Now, in addition to our standard time-based control, we now offer our SolarSync single point sensor, which reports back to your Crestron system to create a true reflection of the natural light outside.”
