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.

Sensor Switch has announced the introduction of its Refrigerator Aisle Occupancy Sensor Kit (model # RA-KIT), which utilizes a specialized occupancy sensor to increase energy efficiency in refrigerator/freezer units used in retail environments. The Refrigerator Aisle Kit contains everything required for both detecting occupants within an aisle of commercial-style refrigerator/freezer cases and controlling the cases’ internal LED lighting.
Sensor Switch has added a WallPod Scene Controller to its revolutionary nLight Control System. The Scene Controller is a single gang, low voltage device that provides a convenient method of selecting one of four custom lighting control scenes for a room. Unlike most scene controllers that adjust only on/off and dim settings, the scenes run by the nLight WallPod Scene Controller can contain any of a multitude of settings available for the nLight devices within its zone.
