Craig DiLouie, LC, CLCP recently interviewed Gary Trott, VP of Intelligent Lighting and IoT Platform, Cree for an article for the October issue of tED Magazine, the official publication of the NAED. The topic: connected lighting’s potential role in the Internet of Things.
Below is Craig DiLouie, LC’s contribution to the March 2017 issue of tED Magazine. Reprinted with permission. The lighting controls revolution features three notable trends promoting integration of control with light. The latest commercial building energy codes promote complex control schemes. The LED source is highly controllable. And sensors and microprocessors have become miniaturized. Just […]

Internet of Things technology and smart buildings continue to appeal to the commercial market. What makes the IoT worthwhile is when we connect networks and sensors to computing systems that converts data into information that enables action without intervention – creating new value and making the systems actually intelligent. Technology management leader Quest installed IoT […]
mindSHIFT, an IT outsourcing and cloud services provider, selected SmartCast® Power over Ethernet (PoE) LED lighting by Cree, Inc. integrated with a Cisco network for the build-out of its cloud mounting services facility in Long Island, N.Y.

This short video, produced by the Lighting Controls Association at the 2015 LIGHTFAIR event, introduces the building industry to Cree’s SmartCast lighting control technology with a field-adjustable correlated color temperature (CCT) feature. Click here to learn more.
Typical automatic lighting control applications involve an input device, such as a photosensor, interacting with a power controller, such as a switch. In some cases, these components may be integrated into the same device, as in the case of a wall-box occupancy sensor. In other cases, the components are installed separately, as in the case […]
The Lighting Control Innovation Award was created in 2011 as part of the Illuminating Engineering Society’s Illumination Awards program, which recognizes professionalism, ingenuity and originality in lighting design. LCA is proud to sponsor the Lighting Control Innovation Award, which recognizes projects that exemplify the effective application of lighting controls in nonresidential spaces. This month, we […]
