ERCO Light Finder app: Inspirational product search with added value

Lüdenscheid, 13 March 2016. ERCO understands digital light as the fourth dimension of architecture. In other words, the luminaire is a lighting tool with a practical purpose, enabling the user to design and model space. By introducing the new Light Finder app ERCO has launched an intuitive planning tool with product search functionality, helping you get into lighting design using LED technology. Each search additionally offers visual inspiration and basic knowledge for qualitative lighting design.

Are you planning to illuminate an interior or exterior space, objects in the room or on the wall? Does the light need to be warm white or neutral white and be dimmable? The detailed requirements in the field of architectural lighting design vary hugely from project to project. ERCO’s Light Finder aids the creative process of designing the right lighting concept from the very first step. With space- and application-oriented graphics, the intuitively operated tool guides architects, designers and builders quickly to the ideal LED lighting solution. The app stores data offline on any iPad, making it particularly helpful when there may not be a reliable data connection.

An inspirational planning guide

With an in-depth planning section, the Light Finder satisfies all the requirements of creative architectural lighting based on precision photometrics. Step by step, the interactive planning tool takes the user through up to ten criteria ranging from general questions through to specific details, aided by easy to understand graphics. These, for instance, define spatial zones, types of lighting, luminaire shapes, mounting details and lighting control systems. At the end of this process, the tool provides an overview of suitable ERCO LED luminaires including technical data and product features. In addition, the user can download tender documents, 3D and planning data for light distribution, and image material for further planning. The search results can then be saved in a personal myERCO archive and shared with other project participants.

Interactive graphics offer light knowledge

To consider the various design options and light effects of ERCO digital lighting tools, the user can swipe to access additional information on various issues. Swiping right takes the user to an extensive photo archive with images of ERCO lighting projects from around the world, demonstrating how designers have solved the relevant lighting issue in the field. A left swipe retrieves basic knowledge on perception-orientated lighting design. The interactive modules allow the user to view different solutions that meet his requirements. This makes the app a knowledge base with different dimensions for creative and technical designers as well as for ERCO sales consultants.
