Monitoring and Management
Monitor, manage and control all environmental and AV presentation systems throughout the building. View precise lighting levels, temperature and shade positions in every room graphically and quantitatively from any touchpanel or PC. Monitor and track current and historical energy consumption and intelligently manage resources. Control every light, shade, audio/video source and display device centrally and globally on a single platform. Ethernet connectivity enables LAN or Webbased system control and management, and sends email advisories about pre-determined events such as automatic loadshedding due to high levels of energy usage.
AV and Room Scheduling
Managing energy consumption and realizing real cost savings must extend beyond lighting and thermostats. Significant electrical energy waste results from AV and IT equipment left on when not in use. Integrated within a Crestron control environment, even personal workspace devices such as computers, printers and desk lamps can be programmed to automatically shut down. Crestron AV distribution systems feature syncsensing to automatically turn off displays and projectors when no active source is detected. Even Crestron touchpanels “go to sleep,” drawing less power when not in use.
Only Crestron RoomView® enterprise management software provides robust reporting and a single view of every AV, IT and environmental device throughout the building. Schedule rooms using MS Outlook® directly from Crestron touchpanels integrated with Microsoft® Exchange Server. When a room is scheduled, thermostats can adjust, and lights and AV equipment automatically turn on prior to the start of a meeting. If the meeting is rescheduled, or after the participants leave the room, all settings and equipment can return to “vacancy” levels.
Simple one-touch dimming of individual lights and groups of lights puts you in absolute control. Set the precise lighting scene for maximum productivity and security. Conserve energy, reduce overall carbon footprint and save money by presetting light levels to 90 percent.
Automation features, such as built-in motion detection and occupancy sensors, turn lights on only when a room is in use, and schedule lights to turn off after business hours to reduce light pollution.
Schedule thermostats to set back the temperature when rooms are not in use, after hours and during weekends and holidays. Control rooms or zones independently so the HVAC system is heating or cooling only those areas that are occupied, not the entire building.
Shades and Drapes
Daylight harvesting uses natural light to illuminate conference rooms and common areas such as lobbies, atriums and dining rooms, using electrical light only when necessary for task or fill lighting. Schedule shades and drapes to rise when a meeting is scheduled; gently lower to reduce glare when the projector is turned on.
Intelligent control manages all environmental systems to achieve maximum energy savings without compromising comfort or convenience, balancing the need for light with climate control.
Use direct sunlight in the winter to naturally warm a room; lower shades to reduce solar heat gain in the summer to keep the room comfortable without using air conditioning.
