Daylight Harvesting

How to configure a light level to daylight sensor with 'Identify Desired Light Level' method using the Lumos Controls mobile app?

Choose this method if the user clearly knows what Lux value is to be maintained at his workstation (area where he wants his desired lighting) but is unaware of the Lux value to be configured to the daylight sensor.

  1. Select the option 'Identify Desired Light Level'
  2. Place a lux meter at the workstation and note the reading
  3. Verify if desired light level is detected at the workstation
  4. If not, use the intensity slider shown in the app screen to adjust the electric lighting until lux meter placed at the workstation reads the desired level
  5. As the lux meter reads the desired light level, click on the 'Read' button to read the light level detected by the sensor at this point
  6. The light falling on the sensor and the light falling on the workstation will be different
  7. Enter the lux meter reading in the app
    1. This value is noted only for futuristic purpose to identify the light detected by the sensor when desired light falls on the workstation 
  8. Click on the 'Set' button and the value to be maintained by the sensor will be configured
