Dear Project Manager-
I would like to explore the possibility of using a lighting control system. There are times when office staff works long hours and researchers sometimes need to be in the building on nights and weekends. Often, they leave the lights on which increases my electricity costs. I would like to be able to program the lights on a schedule and if the staff needs to work outside that schedule, they could request a change with our maintenance staff ahead of time. Could you please look into this and provide me with some potential options?
Answer Discussion 6
We are extremely excited about the decision of building a district energy system, the decision will elevate the relevance of not only this project but the whole building complex throughout its entire life cycle. The commitment to a green campus is exemplary and it will serve as a role model for new developments not only in this area but across the country.
Relative to your question about generating your own power, this is a topic that requires more investigation. I will start by saying that the three major sources of energy in the United States are fossil fuels (coal, natural gas, petroleum), nuclear, and renewable energy. We are excited to think about the implementation of renewable energy and the impact it will have in the environment. We recommend looking into three options: 1) solar energy, 2) hydropower, and 3) wind energy. We would like to set-up a time with you and a team of experts to evaluate our options and make a decision that suits your needs. A great idea and great leadership exhibited by your firm to go green.
Sincerely, Project Manager.

I cordially greet you, I hope you are well, regarding the lighting control system we have several alternatives to save energy and costs on these, I fully understand that there are personnel who work until late at night and I agree with you to implement a system that takes care of this problem, controlling the light properly not only improves the experience, but also helps to save energy by using light when and where it is needed most, it also adds security. My recommendation is the following, true lighting control encompasses much more than curtains and dimmers. Lighting management systems and equipment can make lighting a vital and vibrant part of any space. Daylight sensors, for example, can automatically adjust blinds, shades, and high beams to maintain a perfect appearance throughout the day, while occupancy sensors can ensure lights are never left on when a room is not. be used. The lighting control is simple and scalable; it can be integrated into the Internet and have control over it.
If you have any other questions, please let me know I am at your service
Thank you very much and greetings. P.M

Dear Mr. Owner,
I am glad you are meeting this situation, leaving lights on a 24/7 basis does not only generate a large bill, but it contaminates the environment. Before suggesting some programs that schedule the electricity, I would like to suggest incorporating in the building sensors in the lights that are used in transitional spaces and in office areas where staff work. These sensors can be programmed to activate after work hours. Another option is to automatize the office using software and programming. Having mentioned the previous, below I will provide various light control software systems that are best rated in 2021.
1. WAGO Lighting Management: is a system that aids in the reduction of energy consumption through the preconfiguration software that plans and operates the light system. It has the flexibility of having virtual rooms that activates and deactivates light sensors.
2. Control 4: is a system that aids in the control and interaction of lighting through the automatization of switches, dimmers, and lightings. This will assist in reducing electricity costs and fulfilling the need of controlling lights.
