As lighting and control technologies evolve and automated shading becomes more common the collaborative input of architects, engineers, (lighting and interior) designers, contractors and end-users each have warranted responsibilities to the proper specification, installation, commissioning and maintenance of these systems to operate with long-term reliably for ROI in energy savings, human factors and ergonomics.

Digitally addressed ballasts, drivers and motors allow lights and shades to integrate seamlessly with fewer issues and challenges associated with traditional lighting and daylight controls. Properly implemented solutions offer many benefits, positively impacting students, workers, patients, guests and the elderly alike. This presentation helps attendee better understand why it isn’t business as usual ‘ with light controls and window shades.

The presentation is designed for architects, electrical engineers and lighting designers. While the course content is directed at commercial building applications, many of the principles can and are
applied to homes, hospitals, multidwelling units and assisted living environments.
