Networked lighting control is an important emerging trend in lighting control. However, installation of these systems may be more complex than traditional solutions. In response, the Lighting Controls Association has created a generic troubleshooting guide for networked lighting control systems, currently available free as a downloadable V1.0 beta version.
The goal of this document is to enable personnel to address issues that may occur in the field. It’s not intended to replace troubleshooting instructions from specific manufacturers, and it should be noted that manufacturer solutions are highly individualized. The focus of this guide is on generic issues with common equipment types, including hardwired and wireless wall switches and dimmers, occupancy sensors, light sensors, luminaire controllers, and gateways and servers.
Currently, this document is available as a protected XLS spreadsheet. Simply scroll down to review issues, additional symptoms or indications, possible causes, prescription, and additional notes and comments.
