We're working on a house with 300 EcoSystem down lights. The way EcoSystem operates, in the event of a loss of power to the EcoSystem bus, seems suitable to a commercial setting but not residential. Does anyone have an effective strategy for dealing with this?
Here's the problem. Our client has a battery / inverter back up system with limited capacity. They want to be judicious about what loads they use in an emergency. We can set emergency levels for each individual EcoSystem drivers in the HWQS software. During an emergency, if power is maintained to the lighting circuits and lost to the Eco bus, the lights will come on at the pre-programmed levels. That's all great for managing load, but terrible if people are sleeping in bedrooms. This mode of operation seems much more suited to the environment where EcoSystem comes from, commercial, where, in the event of a loss of power, occupants are generally exiting the building, and certainly not sleeping.
Anyone have a good idea, other than programing the emergency levels to 0% in bedrooms?
