The Opportunity

Residential Realty Group recognized the need for updated wall sconces and controls at the entrance areas to the buildings at the Stoneridge Condominium complex. The goal for this project was purely aesthetics and lighting is an important component to keeping a property looking it’s best. Fresh, new light fixtures can make the difference.

Bay Lighting Solution

Outdoor wall sconces from Progress Lighting were selected for this project with lamps provided by SATCO. Bay Lighting also ensured that new photocontrols were a match for the selected fixtures. A total of 14 wall sconces and controls were installed by Bay Lighting.

The Benefits

The end result included beautiful, aesthetically pleasing outdoor wall sconces with new, more sensitive photocell controls. Based on light levels, photo controls are an easy way to automatically have your outdoor lighting power on automatically. LED A19 lamps by SATCO qualified for an instant rebate, saving $77 on 14 bulbs.

    Emergency lights typically have a battery back-up that will operate the light in the event the power goes out, regardless of if there’s a generator for back-up power. Exit signs can and should also have a battery, especially if the building doesn’t have generator. Often during fire department inspections, they check that your emergency lights are operational, both with and without power. Emergency lights must be kept properly maintained to meet all federal and state requirements, so when installing new ones or updating old ones, should you just change the battery or replace the entire fixture?

These include for interior lighting, exterior lighting, and emergency lighting.
