Solar Adaptive Shading

Most buildings today are over-lighted because lights are on at full intensity while there is already ample daylight in the space. This wastes energy, creates discomfort, and reduces productivity.

The Solution

Optimize daylight and electric light to save energy and create a productive, comfortable environment.

Hyperion™ solar-adaptive shading works to maximize daylight harvesting, which uses daylight sensors and dimmable fixtures to set and automatically maintain the perfect light level.

What is Hyperion?

Hyperion is an automated shading system that adjusts shades throughout the day based on the sun’s position. It maximizes good available daylight in a space while minimizing glare and solar heat gain.

How does Hyperion work with Quantum®?

Quantum is a lighting control system that has the ability to manage total light levels in response to available daylight. By combining effective daylight management with lighting systems that automatically dim overhead lights, electric light usage can be lowered to conserve electricity every day.
