In a November 2016 article by Forbes, “When LEDs Are More Than Lights, Buildings Become Smarter,” they claim operating costs are a concern for all building managers.

With 2022 around the corner, it is fair to say that this statement still remains true.
Smart lighting withholds a variety of benefits. From improving indoor air quality, tightening facility security, and even helping factories run more efficiently.
Learn why you and your property managers should install smart lighting in your next big project on Long Island or in the tri-state area.
5 Things You Should Know About Smart Lighting:
- How Does It Work?

- What Is The Cost Of Smart Lighting?
- Your average LED will add about a dollar to your energy bill each year, compared to about $7 per year for a comparable incandescent. That means a single LED will save you about $6 per year over an old-fashioned bulb like that. Moreover, LEDs are designed to last for decades, paying dozens of dollars for one upfront was a sensible long-term investment (cnet).
