This article by Craig DiLouie, LC, CLCP, published in the March 2018 issue of ELECTRICAL CONTRACTOR, describes the latest developments in lighting control software.
“Software enables technicians to start up and program the system, including creating control zones, incorporating control points (nodes), assigning these nodes to the zones, establishing schedules and control profiles (sequences of operation), creating users/access levels, and calibrating sensors. It also enables operators to manage the system, including changing control profiles (e.g., temporary changes based on holidays or special events), and may provide users some control of local lighting. If the networked control system is centralized, the software may record and display energy use and other variables, such as occupancy and backup data and event logs, and generate service notifications.”
