LIghting Control

A Vantage control system keeps the lights and motorized shades in this space in sync to create a balanced, more natural lighting effect. Sensors monitor the amount of natural sunlight available and set the shades and fixtures accordingly. For example, if there’s enough natural light, the Vantage system signals the light fixtures to turn off. Several lighting scenes were programmed into the system, including setups for formal daytime dining, formal nighttime dining and casual dining. Engaging a scene via an AMX touchpanel or Vantage keypad not only sets the lights but brings the ideal dinner music to the space.
