Dim Lights Below 80% Brightness
Modern LEDs are very bright and efficient, and it's easy to accidentally have more light than an area actually needs. In SimplySNAP you can set the initial level for a light to be less than 100% power. Dimming lights to 80% power can provide impressive savings with little to no loss of available lighting. Moving the default setting below 80% can save even more power.
Set Maximum Power Output
Decreasing the maximum amount of power available is another easy way to decrease power consumption. In SimplySnap you can set the high end trim level for a light to be less than the maximum available while still allowing users the same control over light levels.
Use Jitter to Eliminate Power Surges
When a traditional lighting system is switched on, every light on the circuit gets power at the same time. Each time this happens there is a surge in power usage that can affect your power bill.
The Jitter setting provides a means for phasing in lights over a number of seconds to help eliminate these expensive surges. Jitter is a delay setting, expressed in seconds, that powers lights in a random pattern over a number of seconds to limit the effects of power surges.
Use Schedules and Sensors to Dim or Deactivate Lights When They're Not in Use
The scheduling function in SimplySnap allows you to set schedules that dim or deactivate lights during a building's off hours. This is really helpful until circumstance dictates that someone be in that area during a non-standard time.
Sensors can support a lighting solution by temporarily activating lights when motion is detected, and then dimming them back to off when motion is no longer detected.
