Universal Douglas recently announced that its Dialog® Lighting Control Unit (WLC-4150-SC) has received the UL 2900-1 Standard for Software Cybersecurity Network-Connectable Products from the global safety science organization.
The Dialog Lighting Control Unit, a large touchscreen used for changing system settings, is an updated component to Universal Douglas’ Dialog System, a digital, centralized and programmable lighting control system for entire floors, buildings and large multi-building applications. The UL 2900-1 Standard, which is part of UL’s Cybersecurity Assurance Program, covers evaluations and tests of network-connectable devices as it relates to vulnerabilities, malware and software weaknesses.
“UL is the standard-bearer for product safety, and the organization’s expertise as it relates to IoT cybersecurity is world-renowned,” said Anthony Lee, product manager at Universal Douglas. “Universal Douglas is proud to earn the UL 2900-1 Standard for our Dialog Lighting Control Unit.
