The value of automated emergency lighting testing

Emergency_Lighting.jpg

Today, facility managers and building owners are entirely responsible for the emergency lighting within their properties, whether that is within a single building or spread across multiple premises on an extensive estate. This includes ensuring emergency lighting systems work correctly, are maintained in full working order and meet strict emergency regulations.

Testing emergency lighting across a large multi-site estate can be a laborious task for even the most proficient facility manager, however, it is an absolute necessity for social housing facilities.

In fact, the law dictates that housing associations must complete monthly and yearly functional and duration testing of emergency lighting systems in accordance with BS 5266-1: 2011.

The UK Standard BS 5266-1: 2011 requires emergency lighting to be checked on a regular basis and results to be logged by the person responsible for the building. In addition, any ineffective emergency lighting must be repaired within a reasonable time and changes recorded.

The expense of manually testing emergency lighting in social housing facilities can be considerable, especially when you take into account the requirement for qualified engineers on site. It can also cause significant disruption and the potential for human error remains.

Advancements in wireless lighting control technology continue apace, bringing a number of innovative features and benefits that have eliminated such issues, including the ability to automate emergency lighting testing.

Wireless lighting control systems, and more importantly automated emergency testing functionality, represent a significant leap forward for emergency lighting. Such advancements mean instead of sending an engineer to a building to conduct mandatory tests on emergency lighting, housing associations can now remotely complete all tests from the comfort of their office on a desktop, laptop, tablet or even a smartphone.
