Easy to install, the plug-and-play Intellect fixture control system features self-commissioning capabilities, which locate, assign, auto-group and auto-zone all light fixtures in the space and set lighting levels based on a pre-determined logic without expensive wiring or commissioning. It utilizes local and cloud control for advanced lighting control, including 0-10V dimming, occupancy sensing and daylighting strategies. Intellect is ideal for retail spaces, restaurants, hospitality spaces, offices, classrooms and open spaces up to 100,000 square feet.
