Our work in this area started some years ago and was developed from the concept that within a public building, where there are people; there is light and where there is light; there is a grid of lighting control sensors.
Lighting control sensors can be as simple as providing basic switching on and off of the lighting, but they can also be more advanced multi-sensing and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) enabled sensors that give significantly more features and feedback. Our Proxima sensors, aside from the typical lighting control capabilities (absence, presence, daylight & temperature) are also creating a BLE network capable of tracking other BLE devices in the space to enable new features such as space utilization, asset tracking, wayfinding, and targeted messaging. And now, with the emergence of Covid-19 – physical distancing. The data gathered by the sensor network is then presented to a cloud-based portal, where it can be interpreted and presented back via an online dashboard.
Amongst the many USPs, our Proxima system has, one of the key features is that is piggybacked on our DALI lighting control system installation. This means that in new office development, for example, each client space can be tailored during the fit-out stage can benefit from a Prolojik lighting control system and then opt-in or out of the Proxima Smart system analytics with the change from our standard PS432 Multi sensor, to our BLE enabled PS462 and the addition of the Proxima software required to drive the Smart functionality.
We collaborate with companies such as 299 Lighting, and work alongside the Building Consultancies to develop client specifications in these areas, and whilst we have been designing and delivering the Proxima system for some years, we have seen a big upturn in the recent months since Covid changed the way we all live and work.
Prolojik has always operated within the bleeding edge of the lighting control market and pushed the development of innovative solutions to provide the best and most relevant systems.
