Legrand, North & Central America and Lumileds recently announced a partnership agreement that will bring to market a simple to integrate and easy-to-install plug and play solution that delivers high quality tunable-white light.
The Internet of Things (IoT) has become the talk of technologists everywhere, on every product level imaginable. Lighting is no exception. Understanding why this is such an energetic field requires thinking beyond conventional control and connectivity models. The integration of smart features opens the door to intelligent utilization of data and energy that cannot be achieved using closed, localized technologies that cannot be accessed beyond their limited utilitarian functionality.
Craig DiLouie, LC, CLCP recently had the opportunity to interview Jonathan Cartrette, Systems Architect, Wattstopper/Legrand for an article that will be published in 2019 for ELECTRICAL CONTRACTOR. The topic? Lighting and cybersecurity.
This month, we will explore an innovative installation of LED lighting and controls at Love Sculpture at Sakura Lake Sports Park, Weihai, China.
Lutron Electronics recently reimagined its Residential Experience and Training Center in the Decoration and Design Building in New York City. Nearly three times the size of Lutron’s former New York City space, the new Center is intended to offer a design destination for the tri-state area specification community and their clients.
This educational video, produced by the Lighting Controls Association at the 2018 LIGHTFAIR event, introduces the building industry to McWong International’s IoT-ready and Bluetooth-enabled programmable LED drivers.
Legrand’s DALI digital sensors (FDP-300 Series) were the first products developed as part of Legrand’s partnership within Philips Lighting SR (System Ready) Certified Program. These sensors can be programmed locally using the Legrand Sensor Configuration app or remotely using 3rd party controllers with DALI 103 and 303 functionalities. These sensors enable connected intelligent lighting (when paired with a 3rd party controller) for many outdoor applications and ensure substantial savings in energy and maintenance costs.
In September, California passed SB-327, a cybersecurity law that will affect manufacturers of Internet of Things (IoT) and operational technology (OT) devices.
The DesignLights Consortium recently updated its technical requirements for networked lighting control systems to qualify for listing in the organization’s Qualified Products List for Networked Lighting Control Systems, which is used by a growing number of utilities to quality products for rebates promoting this technology.
This article at Eaton’s THE SOURCE website provides an insightful look at how connected lighting can facilitate space optimization.
