For custom integrators selling lighting, getting property access at night to conduct an in-person lighting demo can be challenging. That’s why FX Luminaire now enables dealers to create a nighttime lighting demo from anywhere with the innovative new Night Mode feature from the lighting fixture provider’s My Design tool.
Night Mode is a simple editing tool that lets you design renderings with illustrative night lighting. It shows essential details like direction, intensity and more to assist dealers in effectively simulating nighttime aesthetics even if they can’t set up a proper demo for clients.
According to FX Luminaire, the process is easy to develop a professional proposal in only a few clicks with the online resource.
Integrators can snap a picture of any landscape, then turn on Night Mode to reveal the effects of landscape lighting in their design and wow prospective customers. The simple steps from FX Luminaire, using My Design:
- Turn on Night Mode: Transform your landscape design with a single click.
- Edit Light: Modify the lighting aspects applied to a fixture, including beam adjustment, beam spread, and beam intensity.
- Toggle Light On/Off: Select one or more fixtures to easily add or remove lighting effects.
- Navigate Your Design: Use Zoom to get a closer look at your lighting design along with Navigate to quickly pan across the screen.
- Additional Features: Stay in control with functions like Darkness plus multiple selection tools and icon sizes.
“We focused on speed to design and simplicity with My Design and Night Mode. Using simple tools, professionals of all technical skill levels can present illustrative lighting concepts to their customers in a fraction of the time compared to complex and expensive software,” says Scott Allison, web development manager at FX Luminaire parent company Hunter Industries.
My Design & Night Mode Facilitate Lighting Jobs for Various Skill Levels
The company adds that because My Design requires no technical expertise, the design process and intuitive interface is highly manageable for beginners yet powerful enough for experts.
Using any device in the cloud, integrators can access Night Mode to impress customers … and grow their lighting fixture business, FX Luminaire suggests.
FX Luminaire rolled out the My Design tool almost a year ago, in April 2021, for 24/7 access so integrators could access it on- or off-site, from their showrooms, vehicles or elsewhere.
With My Design, distributor outside sales reps can provide on-the-spot design tips and recommendations to customers; designers can produce detailed, visually stunning design proposals; and integrators/contractors can generate part lists for faster, more accurate ordering and even use the lighting design as an install plan for their crew, according to the company.
