The Northwest Lighting Network recently published an article about the potential of luminaire-integrated lighting controls.
From the article:
While traditional lighting control strategies can yield considerable benefits, Luminaire Level Lighting Controls (LLLC) show promise of both easier installation and commissioning and deeper energy savings beyond other lighting controls.
The Design Lights Consortium will publish a Qualified Product List in early 2016 for Advanced Lighting Controls, and a special designation on the list will report whether the product meets the LLLC specification. In the wild west of lighting controls, this list should help trade allies to select controls systems with the appropriate and cutting-edge capabilities, and install and commission those systems with new training materials from manufacturers, the Design Lights Consortium and an advanced lighting training coming to the Northwest region in 2016.
