Lighting plays an important role in the built environment to provide safety, security and comfort. Lighting can be classified into a number of groups including:

  • Functional lighting 
  • Task specific lighting
  • Feature or architectural lighting
  • External lighting
  • Emergency lighting.

The energy consumption associated with lighting has been reduced dramatically since the introduction of LED lighting. Further reductions are possible through appropriate control of lighting to ensure that spaces are not illuminated when unoccupied.

Lighting Control can also enhance the comfort and wellbeing of a space through ensuring that the lighting is appropriate to tasks carried out in the space or controlling the colour temperature of fittings to match the circadian rhythm of occupants.

atBOS Lighting Control is appropriate for any scale of building, and includes control hardware and software.

  • Suitable for domestic and commercial buildings 
  • Can be installed in new or retrofit projects
  • Can control any type of lighting system
  • Flexible user interfaces including wired and wireless switches, web based UI and smart phone app
  • Third party hardware can be integrated as required using a variety of interfaces.


- Wireless communication means that lighting system does not require separate communication cabling

- Mesh devices only require power so can operate from the lighting circuit using the unswitched live

- Devices can be easily integrated into existing systems to take control

- Wireless energy harvesting switches improve the ability to retrofit the system



- Single technology platform for all building functionality

- The same occupancy detection sensor is used for controlling all services in the building, not just lighting

- Link the control of lighting to the control of external shading in order to optimise level levels in a space

- The Atamate HAZETM light switch can be used to control other systems such as boosting the heating, opening natural vents or lowering blinds



- Low first cost due to wireless nature of devices simplifying the installation and reduced commissioning period

- Wireless energy harvesting switches improve the ability to adapt the system and improve its longevity

- Mesh communication means multiple smaller devices so no complicated wiring centres are required saving cost and space.

- Data gathered by platform can be used to create value through improving building management

Examples of Lighting Control strategies

atBOS uses a range of pre-programmed strategies to control lighting in a building. These range from simple zone based occupancy detection to daylight linked dimming and variable colour temperature to improve circadian rhythm. The approaches used depends on the function of the building owners and requirement of its occupants

Control strategies include:

  • Occupancy based control, this uses passive infrared (PIR) sensors and also the space CO2 level to detect long term occupancy and prevent switching becoming a nuisance.
  • Can incorporate ambient light levels to adjust artificial light levels according to the level of daylight
  • Can integrate the control of shading to improve space comfort by preventing glare and/or overheating whilst maintaining appropriate light level
  • Lighting can be linked to a calendar or booking system so that lighting scenes are set up for specific functions in specific spaces at specific times of day
  • Can control light fittings which are dimmable, non-dimmable and also colour changing (Red-Blue-Green, RGB)
  • Can control lights with variable colour temperature to suit circadian rhythm.
  • User interface can be any light switch - rocker, push button, halos - or web based control through smart phone or web browser
  • Completely configurable via Responses - this can be used to program any lighting circuit to be triggered to any sensor input.
  • Atamate HAZETM switches are a multi-function interface used to control services including lighting
  • The industry standard protocol used allows the inclusion of energy harvesting devices including wireless switches that can be installed anywhere and use only the power the switch produces itself.

Lighting Control Interoperability

atBOS software is flexible and can control most lighting devices using the following methods:

  • Simple relay control
  • 0-10v dimmable control
  • Leading edge/trailing edge dimmers
  • Mesh wireless communication
  • Industry standard protocols such as DALI or DMX.
