RIDI light management in practical application
Light management has to be used according to demand and made as easy as possible for the user. The operator of the lighting system focuses on efficiency and the connection to a building management system. The user sees the tasks of light management more in terms of convenience and health. These different approaches have to be linked for the individual application solutions to allow implementation of the optimum light management system.
The applications range from a floor lamp as the smallest unit to the illumination of an entire building and can be divided into different sectors depending on the area of use and the intention of the illumination.
RIDI offers lighting solutions for offices, schools, sports halls, industrial facilities and retailers. Naturally, special solutions and cross-brand solutions can also be implemented within the RIDI Group.
Solutions for individual rooms
Wireless with RIDI Smart Control
RIDI Smart Control allows luminaires to be controlled very easily via an intuitive and highly visual user interface on a smartphone or tablet. The attractive app turns lighting into an experience and can be used for nearly all brands of the RIDI Group.
The control modules of the RIDI Smart Control establish a network between the luminaires, allowing the user to select the luminaires from anywhere. Interconnecting the luminaires with an additional control line is not necessary, the existing network line is sufficient. Communication between the components is based on Bluetooth technology.
Tapping and swiping in the app switches and dims the luminaires, creates groups and forms scenes. Depending on the features of the luminaires, the colours (RGB) or the shade of white (tunable white) can be changed.
Existing wall switches can be expanded in the “Smart Switch” function, i.e. the wall switch is used to switch and dim luminaires and to call up scenes.
RIDI Smart Control offers a fast and simple way of controlling light: only a small module is installed in the actual luminaire and no switches, gateways or networks have to be in place. The end user only needs to download the free app “Casambi” to their device from the Apple App Store or from Google Play.
Advantages of RIDI Smart Control:
- Easy installation
- No control lines
- Intuitive app control
- Up to 128 modules in one network
- No additional gateways required
- Free app
- Control via Bluetooth
- DALI or 1-10 V converter
“Plug and play” with DALI
One main feature of light control systems for individual room and floor lamp applications is that they can be operated directly after installation without much programming – just plug and play.
The multi-sensor integrated into the floor lamp or a master luminaire controls the light according to demand and switches the lighting ON or OFF automatically, depending on user presence. Manual operation via switches or remote control is possible at any time.
Additional slave luminaires, which are connected to the master luminaire via a DALI control line, are automatically controlled through a broadcast process and do not have to be addressed.
For individual personalisation of the illumination, specific parameters of the light control, e.g. the trailing time, can be set with a PC software and a special programming remote control.
This allows even simple systems to be easily and flexibly adapted to local conditions and user requirements.
RIDI Group uses DALI Actilume and DALI-ECO for all brands.
- Constant light control
- Motion detection
Komplettlösung mit RIDI GREEN BOX
RIDI GREEN BOX is a complete package of square recessed luminaires for M625 or M600 module system ceilings for office renovation. The boxes are available as sets of 4, 6 or 8, depending on office size and desired luminaire arrangement. Each set includes a master luminaire with daylight or motion sensor and 3, 5 or 7 slave luminaires. The T16 lamps in colour temperature 840 are integrated and have already been lit for 100 hours, allowing the lamps to be dimmed immediately after installation. LED technology with RIDI TUBE is particularly efficient and sustainable. The LED version of the RIDI GREEN BOX also already contains the lamps.
Order, unpack, install: the simplest way to illuminate efficiently and save energy!
- Office renovation made easy
- Complete boxes in sets of 4, 6 or 8
- Daylight and motion sensor in the master luminaire
- LED technology with RIDI TUBEs is particularly efficient and sustainable
Solutions for multiple rooms
Light control systems for multiple room or large room applications feature a variety of options for adapting the lighting to user requirements.
Depending on the system, the lighting can be controlled via panels, remote control or conveniently via a touch panel.
Optional multi-sensors with integrated light sensor and motion detector can achieve a high energy saving potential. For this, the lighting system can be divided into partial areas as groups with own sensor systems. Commands to the entire system are still possible at any time. The system can be programmed with a special software.
RIDI Group uses DALI-ECO and DALI Digidim for all brands.
- Constant light control
- Motion detection
- Lighting scenarios
Light control systems for industrial applications with protection rating IP20 or IP54 are easy to integrate into the RIDI LINIA continuous lighting systems. The special RIDI LINIA modules include the required control components as well as the sensor system and are easy to integrate into the continuous lighting system with great flexibility.
RIDI uses the correspondingly adapted VLM-SEN modules for industrial applications within the RIDI LINIA continuous lighting system.
- Constant light control
- Motion detection
For specific application areas such as hallways, side rooms or other pass-through rooms, RIDI uses a high frequency motion detector specifically for diffuser luminaires.
The compact, innovative and high quality HF motion detectors are integrated behind the luminaire tray, fully concealed. There are no visible attachment parts, allowing the luminaires to present their design to the user unchanged.
Motion detectors can be adapted to the usage conditions with individual setting options
- Sensitivity adjustment
- Hold time
- Brightness control
Tunable White / Human Centric Lighting
Light has an effect on our wellbeing, defines our day and night rhythm and has been proven to influence our powers of concentration. The focus here is on people, their health and the influence of artificial light on their well-being. The spectral composition of artificial light and the illumination level are based on the course of natural daylight, trying to imitate it as far as possible.
These parameters are crucial to whether the light has an activating or relaxing effect on the human organism.
RIDI Group uses the Tunable White control for this across all brands.
Tunable White Basic
Tunable White Basic is the starter version with the following features:
- Manual white-white control for colour temperature
- Brightness dimming
- Manual control of the lighting system with 2 buttons for brightness control and colour temperature control
DALI Tunable White Plus
Die komfortable Tunable White Plus Steuerung kann individuell programmiert werden und läuft automatisch ab.
- Automatische Weiß-Weiß-Steuerung in Abhängigkeit der Tageszeit
- Programmierung mittels Smartphone-App möglich
- Zirkadiane Lichtszenen mit entsprechenden Farbverläufen und Beleuchtungsintensitäten
- Kann auch manuell bedient werden
RIDI light management for everyone
Quality in production is paramount for RIDI. Special checks and tests are carried out both before and during the production of LED lamps. It goes without saying that the luminaires also have to comply with strict quality guidelines. Quality by RIDI comprises the entire vertical integration and RIDI is committed to meeting the highest requirements.
LED lighting makes a significant contribution to sustaining our beautiful planet. It not only cuts energy costs, it also reduces CO2 emissions. RIDI products, including LED lamps, have a long service life and allow simple and environmentally friendly disposal. There are no residual substances such as lead or mercury. LED is the economical and ecological light of the future.
