Emergency lighting systems have to help achieve safety. The correct functioning thereof can only be ensured by systematic control and maintenance.
The main objective of emergency lighting is to ensure a safe exit from facilities in case normal lighting is off (EVS-EN 1838). Pursuant to legislation in effect on the territory of the Republic of Estonia, emergency lighting shall be installed in establishments providing accommodation; in medical, nursing and special treatment facilities/institutions; in facilities of the gathering of large groups of people and/or in public use, incl. pre-school child care institutions and educational institutions; office buildings; industrial buildings and underground, incl. multi-storey, garages (§36 section 2, 3 and 4 of Regulation No. 54 of the Minister of Economic Affairs and Infrastructure as of 01thJuli 2015). Pursuant to standard EVS-EN 50172, emergency lighting shall be maintained and checked on daily, monthly and yearly bases, and the results of maintenance and control shall be fixed in writing in a reproducible form.
Nowadays a traditional approach to the checking of emergency lighting is most widespread, which is accompanied by a large loss of human, monetary and time resources.
The methods of performing checking depend usually on manual testing and may be very easily left undone. It may often become complicated for the owners of emergency lighting systems to find a competent specialist and time for checking the system, pay for the work of the specialist, duly fix the results of checking and interpret legal standards.
The shortcomings of traditional checking can be avoided by automating the checking activities. It is crucial that automatic management systems perform checking in a reliable manner and allow to record and save the times of all errors and the entire operation.
