Located in Howard County Maryland, the Robinson Nature Center is a nature education facility situated on 18 acres.  One of only three LEED Certified Platinum buildings in the entire state, the center employs a variety of Eco-friendly methods for conserving energy.

The Challenge

Provide a lighting solution that could integrate with other technologies being installed.  It would also have to offer the flexibility to expand as the needs of the facility changed.

The Result

HS Tech Group was able to provide a solution that permits the staff to control the center’s exhibits as well as the lights from convenient centralized locations.  The system also reduces the amount of energy consumption while extending the life of the lighting fixtures.  This particular system was selected due to its ability to adapt and expand as the needs for the facilities evolve. As an example, we have an iPhone APP that will allow the center to control lights and exhibits from a PDA.
