Daylight Harvesting

How does Closed Loop work?

If Closed Loop is chosen as the daylight harvesting mode, the daylight sensor will be configured with a particular light level (in 'Lux' or 'V') using any of the three closed loop methods. The aim of our 'Closed Loop' technique is to maintain this light level.

The daylight sensor measures the light falling on it at regular time intervals called Sensitivity. The sensor sends triggers to its associated light devices if the light level detected by the sensor has a deviation from the configured light level. With Tolerance, the sensor will not send triggers right away when a variation is identified but only when the variation is higher than the allowed range.

When the associated light devices receive sensor triggers, their intensity is increased or decreased within the configured Fade time in such a way that the light output matches with the light level configured to the daylight sensor.
