This short video, produced by the Lighting Controls Association at the 2011 LIGHTFAIR event, introduces the building industry to Sensor Switch’s nLight Digital Lighting Control System. nLight is the first lighting control system to cost-effectively integrate Occupancy-based, Daylight-based, Time-based, and Manual control methods. Requiring no centrally hardwired equipment, nLight provides facility managers with the ability […]
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 use of lighting controls in nonresidential applications. In this award’s first year, eight projects were recognized with an Award of Merit, with one further recognized with a Special Citation Award. This month, we will explore the role that energy-saving lighting controls play in the U.S. Department of Energy’s Research Support Facility at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, a net-zero-energy office building.
