LED strip lighting for stairs

Use Casesvg>

Brief: I want to have indirect lighting installed in my stairs.

Stairs always pose a certain risk of accidents. Good staircase lighting is extremely important because injuries can occur as a direct result of poor or no staircase lighting at all. LED strip lighting for stairs is an easy and modern way of achieving this.

Indirect staircase lighting offers a high degree of safety and discreetly embellishes the staircase and corridor. To achieve this the light must be sufficiently bright but must not dazzle.

Solution: Using Loxone LED strip lighting for stairs.

LED strip lighting for stairs can be easily implemented or retrofitted with Loxone. A Motion Sensor is installed above and below the stairs. Then, LED strip should be installed as desired, for example under each step, to the side of the stairs or under the handrail. An RGBW dimmer allows easy control of the RGBW LED lighting.

If the Motion Sensor detects movement, the Miniserver knows that it has to send a signal to the LED strip. In the given example we have created different lighting moods: because in the morning and evening we would like to have softer light than during the day. If you approach the stairs at night, the night lighting mood is selected.

Since Motion Sensors have been configured in a thoroughfare, the staircase lighting will be activated for two minutes once motion has been detected.

The example can, of course, be refined further. For example, the lighting times can be adapted or you configure certain moods which can be activated by a switch (e.g. cleaning mode = bright light, anti-mosquito mode = red lighting on summer evenings, etc.).
