Sweep Timer Savings

Note: The virtual sweep timer is a custom feature that is not available by default in Manage. This is an Admin enabled function; either contact your facility administrator or Enlighted Support to enable the Sweep Timer function.

For buildings that already have installed basic measures to curb lighting energy loads, such as sweep timers, the Enlighted system goes beyond the basic measures to capture deeper lighting energy savings.

The Enlighted sweep timer instance can be scheduled in areas where automatic controls are already in place. The savings from the system are not calculated during these periods unless occupancy is detected. These periodic, programmed, sequential sweeps ensure that fixtures are turned off as soon as activity in an area diminishes. When there is occupancy during these periodic programmed sweep timings, Manage will start taking energy credit for realized energy savings by deploying occupancy sensing, daylight harvesting, and task tuning functions.

Refer to the following tasks:
