How Energy Audit Software Can Almost Completely Automate Your Commercial LED Lighting Audit

We look at how energy audit softwarecould be the number one competitive edge for your LED lighting retrofit work.

So your client is going green (or whatever color they want their lights to be) and you’ve got your big LED lighting audit to organize. Ordinarily, here’s what you’d need to get started:

  • 4 pencils
  • 2 reams of paper
  • 3 notebooks
  • 1 project management qualification
  • Knowledge of optics, electrical engineering and design
  • Some screws to stop your head from spinning

We kid of course, but a commercial LED lighting audit is a big job with many moving parts and many people trying to move those parts. With this complexity comes a lot of things that can go wrong, and it can be daunting for even seasoned lighting professionals. Even the overwhelming benefits of a commercial LED lighting retrofit can seem not worth it in the face of the sheer complexity of a lighting audit.

There is however a modern solution at hand in the form of automation. This doesn’t quite mean robots will screw the lightbulbs in for you, but it does mean the normally complex lighting audit processes can be simplified in almost every aspect of a commercial LED lighting retrofit.

Let’s have a look at some of the ways energy audit automation can help with the common problems of a commercial LED lighting retrofit. Note, for the purposes of this article, we use the terms “energy audit” and “lighting audit” interchangeably.

  • Eliminates mistakes and inaccuracies – No illegible handwriting, no bad photocopies or faxes; all information is typed out and available for review by all involved – instantly.
  • Increased productivity – Our app provides you with predefined selections for lighting that suit your existing fittings. That means no guessing as we have already done the work to determine the best lighting solutions for your unique needs.
  • Easily integrate on-site photographs – All photos are stored in the lighting audit  app (and cloud) automatically, and assigned to their respective sectors and fittings- that means no missing email attachments or incomprehensible filenames.
  • Multiple auditors can work on the same project – With everything safely centralized in the cloud, multiple auditors (from anywhere in the world) can drop in on any job to check progress. No missed emails and no lost communications.
  • Look good in front of the client – Showing a client your comprehensive, automated energy audit system from a tablet is a heck of a lot more impressive than your chicken scratch on a notepad. It also exponentially aids in helping your client visualise the changes from their LED lighting retrofit. [1] 
  • Allows multiple stakeholders to participate for consistency – Everyone in the energy audit chain can participate – suppliers, consultants and contractors all have input, meaning nobody in the audit chain gets those unpleasant surprises. This full engagement from all parties allows for consistency and transparency throughout every audit.
  • Eliminates the need for clipboards, notepads and pencils – This improved, automated energy audit software all fits in your pocket on your mobile phone or tablet. All information is stored securely in the cloud ensuring no loss of work from a misplaced handwritten page.
