International Dark-Sky Association (IDA) Recently Certified the Sunrise Technologies Outdoor Wireless Dimming Controller as Dark-Sky Approved
Boston, MA, September 1, 2020 International Dark-Sky Association (IDA) recently bestowed the prestigious Dark-Sky Seal of Approval for Sunrise Technologies WALI wireless parking lot controller. This advanced LED wireless dimming controller, along with the previously IDA approved Dimulator, are ideal for minimizing glare, reducing light trespass, and protecting the night sky against light pollution. Leo Smith, the Northeast Regional Director for IDA says “We are very excited to have the WALI wireless LED dimming controller as part of our Dark-Sky friendly products. Many utilities and municipalities can meet their state and federal mandates to conserve energy while greatly reducing light pollution. We strongly suggest that anyone who is responsible for street and area lighting consider the Dimulator or WALI as one of their dimming controllers.”
The WALI (Wireless Area Lighting Interface) product is an advanced wireless photocontrol used for dimming and scheduling parking lot and campus area lighting applications. Because of the ease of deployment, it provides facility managers tremendous flexibility for lighting control, both pre-scheduled and manual override using their mobile devices such as cell phones or tablets.
The Dimulator™ (Patent #9210746) series is a group of outdoor LED twist-lock photocontrols with environmentally friendly dimming capabilities. This ANSI C136.41 compliant field adjustable light control has multiple dimming schedules and dimming levels that can be easily set/changed in the field. Adaptive features are available.
Ken Lloyd, GM of Sunrise Technologies says “The WALI product line continues to expand Sunrise’ portfolio of advanced products that offer customers more innovative solutions”.
