Lighting control in the classroom

In a classroom, controls should ensure that students receive the best possible light to stimulate learning. At the same time, the system should offer different scenarios, save energy, and be easy to understand and use for both the caretaker and the teacher.

People often move in and out of the classroom even outside lesson time; someone may have forgotten their hat, someone else wants to check the windows are closed. In order to prevent lights from switching on and staying on during these brief visits, switching on of lights should be controlled manually, while switching off should take place after a set time. In addition, there are always windows that let in natural light. The system should provide more light further inside the room, and by having several luminaires with sensors, the room will covered both in terms of presence and the amount of natural light entering the room.

Lighting control from a human perspective

In the classroom, the teacher controls the lighting. Today’s AV technology with various kinds of smart boards or a traditional whiteboard requires different light settings, while exams require yet another type of lighting. Simple scenario selection enables the teacher to change the lighting according to the different activities going on in the classroom and the focus of attention. All this helps to improve the learning experience.
