Cost Savings

In a hospital setting, maintenance and cost savings are two important factors to consider when it comes to lighting. LED lights with the mate solution can provide significant cost savings over time due to their energy efficiency and long lifespan.

  • 50-60% energy savings compared to standard LEDs
  • Fixtures lasting up to 30,000 hours more with the mate solution
  • Saving a significant amount of energy and money on replacement bulbs and electricity costs over time

Savings with mate control:

  • Small facility (50,000 to 100,000 square feet): $45,000 to $90,000 per year
  • Medium facility (100,000 to 250,000 square feet): $81,000 to $405,000 per year
  • Large facility (250,000 to 500,000 square feet): $202,500 to $810,000 per year

CASE STUDIES

Melanie Segar, the ACC Care Center Administrator, stated, "ACC will be incor-porting many of the lighting solutions piloted in this project as best practic. es in terms of fall risk, sleep enhancement, and non-pharmacological ap-proaches for behaviors related to dementia."
- DOE STUDY ON "TUNING LIGHT IN SENIOR CARE"

"It is a great gift to be able to make a perceptible improvement to the well-being of our residents through light. Moreover, the simulated daylight pat-tern also has a positive impact on our staff.”
- RALF PASCHOLD, CARE HOME MANAGER, SV GROUP

"I think the science is pretty robust," said Figueiro. "Staying in the hospital makes sleep worse. We now have enough scientific knowledge about the impact of a robust light/dark lighting pattern on health to do better than what we're doing in healthcare facilities. There is no reason not to deliver cycled light to any patient in any facility."

FAQ's

  • What is map2match?

    Circadian lighting within the spaces you spend most of your time is fundamental to maintaining a healthy daily rhythm. Matching the color temperature between downlights, accent lighting, and other fixtures from different manufactures is vital, but nearly impossible as the light changes throughout the day. With mate’s map2match™ technology, selecting each light profile is simple and color matching all tunable fixtures is automatic.

  • Why hardwired and not wireless?

    The lighting industry had to start somewhere with tunable lighting, but can we all agree that hard wiring control to a fixture is always better when given the opportunity? We offer this hardwired solution to manufacturers. Less hardware, more hard wired.

  • Why is low voltage a better solution for lighting than high voltage?

    LED bulbs themselves are a low voltage solution. By using low voltage wiring and power, the heat exchange is dramatically reduced thereby significantly increasing the longevity of the fixture.

  • What is Circadian Rhythm or Human Centric Lighting?

    Circadian rhythm can be defined as your internal body clock which helps to manage both physical and mental wellbeing. Human centric lighting mimics the sun’s color change throughout the day to simulate that of the outdoors.

  • Is this a subscription?

    No. We want to help everyone find their daily rhythm and knew removing a monthly subscription would be a big step in the right direction.

  • What if I want to adjust the brightness of my lights manually?

    All light dimming and color can be manually adjusted within mate. When using our rockers, the room can be physically switched, removing power to the fixture.

Why are Power Designs Moving to 48V?

To deliver “more” requires more power to be delivered. More power typically is constrained by size and/or weight restrictions. This is why a growing number of industries are moving to higher-voltage, 48V distribution versus conventional 12V distribution.

WHAT FLORENCE NIGHTINGALE CAN TEACH US ABOUT HEALTH

Our understanding of how these benefits of light are delivered has advanced dramatically in the past two decades. Up until the end of the last century, it was assumed that all responses to ocular light exposure were mediated by the rods and cones we use to see, located at the back of the retinae.
