I did Lighting Maintenance for a couple of our "Prior To Take-Over" Bank customers. Did this off and on for a couple years, until there wasn't enough time to deal with it.
This was maint. on both Parking Lot lighting and the ATM area lighting (known by the slang assembly bill name of "AB-244", which is more accurately "California Financial Code Division 4, Section 13000 - 13080").
Went through and replaced lamps (+ Ballasts if necessary), plus cleaned up fixtures - inside and out.
Verified proper time clock operations. Checked on lighting contactors - repaired / replaced when necessary.
Also designed and installed many Lighting Control Systems - which controlled interior lights, exterior lights and exterior signs - all independently.
For scheduled maintenance, a monthly check was normal. Instructed the BM / CSM / BOM to contact me if any crucial lighting failed.
Billing was around $45.00 / hr + parts (not too bad of a deal for them!!!).
In your situation(s), the impact of non-functioning lights would need to be figured, then suggest a routine schedule.
The ATM lighting is such an important item for FAs, it needs to be monitored somehow and faulty lighting needs to be fixed ASAP!!! (like that day!).
Some suggestions for monitoring lighting levels, in areas where life safety or high security is crucial:
- Lumen Monitors - alerts someone when a certain footcandle level is not achieved,
- Back-Up luminares - if any fixtures fail, an aux. one will automatically light,
- Load current sensors - if total load current drops below a certain level, someone gets alerted,
- Cycling lamp sensors - records and alerts events where lamps begin to cycle off and on, such as HPS lamps do when nearing their life end.
Others can suggest much better ideas than this!
BTW: "BM" = Branch Manager, "CSM" = Customer Service Manager, "BOM" = Branch Operations Manager, "FA" = Financial Association.
