We are a lighting service contractor that installs and maintains lighting systems and controls. I would like to be able to offer a system that can monitor light levels using a proprietary web portal as a valuable addition to our lighting system upgrades. When our customers purchase “Lighting as a Service” (LaaS) we could then offer guaranteed light levels over time and have a tool to verify. Please let me know if you know of a system that can accomplish this.
Measurement of light levels post installation of the new LED lighting system. The measurement post installation from day one is the delta. We want to measure the depreciation of the ambient light over time.
LED lighting performance and depreciation is tested and warranted based on tests LM79, LM80 that project the useful life of the system. Most systems useful life is considered ended when the system's light output depreciates by 30% (L70).
Manufacturers offer warranties on their LED lighting products based on these tests and project the useful life based on burn hours or calculated years of service. By installing a measurement tool during the installation of a new LED lighting system, that will measure the light levels real time from the first day of installation and over the projected life of the system we could verify the light levels are within the L70 requirement.
