The newly constructed building is giving Dr. Batra double the amount of space for her business.

LED parking lot lighting is becoming more popular by the day.

Wayne County Lightfest Uses LED Display To Communicate With Customers

Posted by Jesse Cameron on Dec 14, 2017 1:32:57 PM
Westland, MI is home to Wayne County’s Lightfest where it is home to the largest holiday light show in the Midwest. Visitors pay a small fee or donate a toy, on certain nights, to gain access to the light show. Visitors then enjoy over 100,000 lights and nearly 50 animated themed displays as they stroll through the property in the comfort of their own vehicles. With lines that get lengthy for such an attraction, the Wayne County Lightfest has implemented a 16mm LED display from Electro-Matic Visual to keep things running smooth.

With a high interest, the Lightfest often has a respectable line. While customers momentarily wait in line, the LED sign gives the customers information on the $5 fee, cash only, hours of operation and more. The information that the LED display communicates allows the line to move faster and more efficient, making the experience for everyone much more enjoyable.

The LED Sign from Electro-Matic Visual is actually the same design as our trailer demo, but with a custom wrap. This enables the Lightfest to have flexibility where they want to put their sign during peak hours or when trying to inform the community of the open date. Considering this is a seasonal operation for Wayne County Parks, they are able to transfer the sign to other events in the spring, summer and early fall.

Wilson Town Center Receives Big Rebate on LED Lighting and Sees an Impressive ROI

Posted by Jesse Cameron on Dec 14, 2017 1:19:20 PM
Wilson Town Center is a premiere power center located in Wyoming, MI that features some impressive tenants including: Best Buy, Bed Bath & Beyond, Marshall's, Michael's, Subway and many more. The large property had traditional lighting and was expensive to operate. Wilson Town Center made the switch to LED lighting with Electro-Matic Visual to reduce operating costs, improve customers’ experiences, and overall safety.

Electro-Matic Visual was prepared for replacing a total of 55 fixtures that needed to be replaced with high quality LED parking lot lighting. The LED parking lot fixtures now illuminate the 230,506 square feet that Wilson Town Center resides on. Wilson Town Center previously had (40) 10,000 watt metal halide fixtures that were replaced with (40) 270 watt LED parking lot lights. In addition, they replaced (15) 400 watt metal halide lights with (15) 120 watt LED parking lot lighting fixtures. In both cases, they are seeing increased lighting levels and significantly reducing their energy usage.
 
The benefits don’t stop there. Wilson Town Center’s energy provider gave them a $17,000 rebate on the LED parking lot lighting fixtures to help cut initial costs of the fixtures. Also, Wilson Town Center was given an additional 20% off since Electro-Matic Visual builds all of their LED fixtures in Michigan. Wilson Town Center will see immediate financial benefits on their energy usage and will see an ROI of just over one year!

Taco Bell in Mt. Pleasant, MI Uses New Full Color LED Display to Gain Competitive Advantage

Posted by Jesse Cameron on Nov 15, 2017 4:21:40 PM
 
Taco Bell of Mount Pleasant, MI upgraded their signage with an 11mm Fusion LED Sign from Electro-Matic Visual. Taco Bell is constantly changing their menu, promoting value deals and adding new products. Having an LED sign promoting 24/7 and creating exposure to passing traffic increases their success with any of their product or menu offerings.

Taco Bell’s new 11mm Fusion LED is extra appealing with how they integrated it with the back lit Taco Bell static sign. Typically, we see LED signs that are stacked below or above a back lit cabinet and here we see this great looking LED sign stacked next to the Taco Bell sign cabinet, creating a very simple and clean looking sign.

The Fusion LED Display from Electro-Matic Visual gives Taco Bell the opportunity to display eye grabbing, full color content to promote the $1 Morning Value Menu, $5 Crispy Chicken Quesadilla Box, online ordering options and much more, giving them a competitive advantage over dull static signs. 
 
Creative, full color, content helps this Taco Bell stand out from sorrounding competition. Attractive, short, but to the point messages allow passing traffic to be more attracted to the LED display and better chance they stop in.

Electro-Matic Visual's Smart Wireless Lighting Designed to Improve ROI on LED Lights

Posted by Jesse Cameron on Sep 13, 2017 3:30:16 PM
 
Smart lighting is designed for ultimate energy efficiency and is a great compliment to LED lighting. Smart lighting wireless controls are the next big step to further benefit from LED lighting. Electro-Matic Visual’s wireless controls and application experience can enhance energy savings with LED lighting. These wireless controls allow dimming profiles to optimize energy consumption with lighting requirements and is just one of many ways smart lighting can optimize your ROI on LED lighting.

Smart lighting also includes motion-sensing controls and when integrated correctly with LED lighting the savings can be even more substantial. Motion sensing can be paired with wireless on/off control to automatically turn off individual lights or sections of lights. Motion sensing is also an ease of mind technology. Since the lights are turned on with motion and turned off with lack of motion, you no longer need to worry about shutting down after the day or setting up timers.

Smart lighting allows you to get numbers and reports on current draw, hours of usage, voltage functions and other data so you can see what areas you can improve on to maximize your lighting efficiency for your application.
