GE Indoor Lighting Controls Solutions

Indoor Solutions

GE's interior lighting control solution is scalable, highly flexible, and has stood the test of time. From a single space to multiple facilities, from simple schedules to advanced energy management systems...our solution can be easily designed and tailored to address your lighting control needs.

GE Remote Control system consists of modular components, which the user configures to his application's needs. The basic low-voltage wiring allows flexible switching of any lighting loads, grouping of lighting circuits for common control, providing a strong foundation for automation. Simple 'Softwiring' in the panel can create lighting groups. To add the automation, users can use a timeclock to turn ON or OFF a group of lights, which have been Softwired together. Individuals wishing to stay late would simply turn their individual areas back on.

Level 1A, takes this simple automation to a new level, plus allows for simple and cost effective migration to more features in Lighting Control's other intelligent systems.

Features and Benefits

  • Relay grouping for common control - simple, low-cost functionality. Circuits can be Softwired in groups for common control and reconfigured as the building layout changes without affecting line voltage wiring
  • Master ON/OFF with individual override - allow a group of relays to be turned ON/OFF as a group while retaining the ability to override an individual load.
  • Blink warn - Critical functionality to protect occupants and reduce complaints when automatically turning off lighting.
  • Migrate - to more complex lighting control systems through simple intelligence card interchange

LightSweep™ Modular Solution

LightSweep is a highly scalable lighting control solution based on relay panels, sensors and software. Energy reduction schemes include ON/OFF switching and constant dimming based on time schedules, occupancy sensing or daylight harvesting. LightSweep can be integrated with building management systems (BMS) and linked to the "Smart Grid".


  • Modularity - Easier to meet specification, potentially improving price competitiveness (avoids "over spec"); CAT5 connectivity
  • Simple Design - Snap-in modules and relays, plug-in connectors enable easy factory or field installation, quick field replacement, and simple upgrades or expansions
  • Scalability – The system can be scaled from a very simple stand-alone controller, programmed using the push-button feature to a very complex system deployed across multiple buildings or facilities, accessible via Internet
  • BACnet - Easier to integrate with 3rd party products (e.g., field devices, BMS, security systems). BACnet controller is a fully programmable device allowing custom programming for very complex applications
  • Customization - Custom zones, scenes and pre-sets based on user's preferences: conference rooms, multi-purpose rooms, etc.


  • Cost Savings:
    • Reduce energy bills by utilizing only when needed
    • Expands the fixture life by running either at lower output or fewer hours, this also reduces the maintenance cost
  • Comfort Level:
    • Adjust light levels to reduce glare
    • Pre-programmed scenes for conference or specialty rooms
    • Constant output for entire lamp's life
  • Security & Safety:
    • Intrusion deterrent – lighting activated by motion sensors and integrated with security system
    • Emergency lighting control – activated upon loss of normal power
