Grand Union Housing Group Rolls Out Automated Light Testing
Innovative automatic monitoring technology from Vericon Systems, a leading provider of innovative building management systems, is helping Grand Union Housing Group to realise the true benefits and efficiencies of emergency light testing without the need for manual intervention.
It is also helping to provide the Milton Keynes-based housing provider with even greater assurance that it is complying with relevant health and safety legislation, as well as saving money.
As part of the roll out, Grand Union has installed more than 650 of Vericon’s EmeRed devices across 55 buildings in its housing portfolio, including in some new build specifications. EmeRed monitors the performance of every light and automatically transmits the results to Vericon’s online portal. This gives Grand Union complete visibility of the status of individual lights in a single building, as well as performance trends across the entire estate.
EmeRed reports a range of different factors to ensure the lighting is always on the top line, such as battery degradation and energy consumption. It also measures the life outstanding in each battery to ensure they are replaced before an emergency occurs and automatically reports any potential failures or problems.
