Case Study

The Peterborough office of Her Majesty's Land Registry is a non-ministerial department of the Government of the United Kingdom, created in 1862 to register the ownership of land and property in England and Wales. It reports to the Department for Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy.  

Times are changing and buildings across Great Britain are having to catch up. Over the last two decades, we have seen the introduction of energy efficient LEDs that have made fluorescent fixtures obsolete. The LED revolution is in full swing, but we are just at the very beginning of the smart lighting revolution.  

Having full control over the light output and having smart functionality built in can lead to endless possibilities. At home and at work.  

In HM Land Registry’s case, the property had recently replaced outdated PL/CFL tile fittings with a modern LED solution in our Endurance LED. Whilst the Endurance was much brighter and crisper, staff started to complain about eye strain and headaches.  

This was a problem that obviously needed immediate attention and that is where our OCTO smart lighting system comes in. Enabling individual control of the Endurance, the building operators and staff where now able to dim each individual panel to better suit the time of day and eliminate the problems that staff had frequently raised.  

Not only where they able to find a solution to the brightness problem, OCTO also allowed them to save on energy costs as OCTO provides the functionality required for time-based control by delivering varied output throughout the working day and ensuring lights are off out of hours.  

The benefits of OCTO did not stop there. They also leveraged the ‘Gallery’ feature which enables users to control the lighting in any environment from images they have taken. By simply indicating where the luminaires are in each image, users can switch the lights on and off, dim them and change the colour temperature with simple, easy to remember gestures making for a great user experience.  

OCTO completely transformed the Peterborough based arm of Her Majesty’s Land Registry. Providing full control of light output, the ability to set timers and group OCTO enabled products together to cater for specific requirements of a certain space, the possibilities are truly endless with OCTO. The system is easy to use, hassle free and continues to evolve. Meaning the system will continue to get even better post purchase.
