Lighting Control


SAHMRI DALIcontrol lighting system – View case study.

Never before has it been so important for commercial buildings to be energy efficient.

DALIcontrol is a complete building-wide digital lighting control system built on the DALI standard. DALIcontrol lighting systems are scalable, from single room control to complete buildings and provide a uniquely flexible approach to floor plan control. Easy to install, configure and integrate, coupled with the savings and energy-efficiency benefits that DALIcontrol delivers, it’s a smart choice for commercial lighting control.

No building can be too green and as we enter a new era of energy efficient building ratings and government legislation. Specifiers, consultant occupants, tenants, and facility managers can all benefit from the many advantages of a DALIcontrol lighting control system in the commercial office space.

Nilsen specialises in DALIcontrol lighting control systems and its integration with building management systems. DALIcontrol lighting gives commercial clients the opportunity to integrate their lighting control with emergency and exit lighting, as well as security and HVAC systems on one network. In short, commercial clients will have the ability to simply and effectively monitor the building’s services status at all times.

Nilsen also has the ability to design software for DALIcontrol protocols, and provide seamlessly engineered services including documentation, commissioning, installation and testing.
