Webinar: Avoiding Networked Lighting Control Deployment Pitfalls

July 29, 2021 @ 11:00 am – 12:30 pm

1.5 IES CEUs & 1.5 AIA LU-HSWs

Networked Lighting Control (NLC) systems have gotten simpler and easier to install and commission. Even so, these are still systems with a variety of parts that must be installed correctly for the NLC to work properly. In this presentation, we’ll review a research project where four different NLCs were installed on one floor of a large office building. The presenter was on-site to observe the installation of some of these systems and documented problems that arose. We will review some of these “issues” as well as solutions that will help you to avoid these types of pitfalls on an NLC deployment — whether that’s for a retrofit or new construction project. Before we begin, the presenter will show some examples of his lighting design work. He’ll also pull up the software for a wireless NLC system installed at UC/Santa Cruz – “live” – so that attendees can see what typical NLC software looks like.

Date: Thursday, July 29h, 2021
Time: 11:00 am – 12:30 pm
Speaker: Steven Mesh, LC, IES
Tickets: Complimentary

Learning Objectives:

  • Showcase effective Lighting Case studies
  • Watch a live software demonstration for a wireless Networked Lighting Control system in a real project at UC/Santa Cruz. Review typical features of the front-end software for these types of systems, and learn how they can help achieve huge energy savings.
  • Investigate how to avoid NLC deployment pitfalls by reviewing a research project where the speaker was an on-site observer during installation. Address issues that came up, and discuss how to avoid unnecessary mistakes when doing lighting control projects.
  • Compare installation issues that may arise between wired and wireless NLCs.
