Providence is a healthcare services provider committed to serving the communities surrounding their facilities.

Lighting in most parking garages continuously operates regardless of need, which wastes energy and contributes to peak demand during the day and generates adverse light pollution at night. To save on energy costs and reduce power consumption, Providence resolved to install LED lighting combined with day-lighting and occupancy-based control systems at its newly constructed parking structure serving a new outpatient clinic and ambulatory care center in Torrance, CA.
FSC Lighting custom-designed a series of luminaires with integrated high/low passive infrared, Title 24 compliant sensors. These luminaires operate at reduced levels during vacant periods in the parking structure and at full light output upon occupancy. Additionally, photocell sensors detect sunlight and shut down lighting during daylight hours, which saves money and prevents wasteful energy. As part of a comprehensive and innovative lighting strategy, FSC incorporated PowerPlus, its recently patented technology that transforms lighting fixtures into ports to power electronics, including IoT devices. Providence Health can now provide power to security cameras, WiFi hotspots, and even power parking guidance systems directly from their light fixtures. With PowerPlus, Providence’s parking structure is future-proof, with the capacity to power today’s devices and the readiness to adapt to tomorrow’s needs—whatever they may be.
The PowerPlus module enables your FSC Lighting fixtures to become a power source for your electronic devices and IoT connections. Simple, versatile and efficient—just plug in, power up and get connected.
From smart lighting sensors to asset tracking devices to WiFi hotspots, and so much more, we help you power what’s possible.
