Daylight harvesting control solution

Daylight harvesting systems reduce energy consumption by using the natural daylight that is available to offset the use of artificial lighting. This is made possible by the implementation of smart lighting control systems, which can dim or switch electric lighting in response to the changing availability of daylight.
