Advantages of Central Monitoring
A central monitoring system monitors all individual components of an emergency lighting system, and gathers all collected information to a single location. This makes monitoring the system fast and easy, no matter how complicated the location is. The system also records data about performed tests. Central monitoring systems can be customised to fit the location perfectly.
For example: depending on the chosen sysem, the user could select a suitable time for an emergency light to perform an independent battery test. If this light detects a problem, it would inform the central monitoring system. The system writes down all information about said test into a log file, and reports the issue to maintenance personnell via selected contact method, such as email. Maintenance could then locate said luminaire from a map view, and take the necessary actions.
