The metal halides were replaced with energy efficient fluorescent lighting. The hangar is now illuminated with better lighting and color rendering. The brighter white light reflecting off the white floors has improved visibility around and under the aircraft.

The Kanepi Wireless Control system was installed on the fixtures," being able to manage the lights is key"said Steve King, Director of Maintenance, Cox Enterprises, Inc. 

"The bays have 40 fixtures per bay and we are now able to wirelessly turn on ten or twelve fixtures at a time instead of the entire bay, saving even more energy. It has made it much easier to control security at night. The motion sensors are set to security mode, if one motion sensor goes off the edge lighting around the hangar turns on. Safety has improved, we are no longer stumbling around in the dark looking for a switch."
