The Internet of Things: Lights, HVAC, emergency, WiFi, elevators, even refrigerators are becoming connected. In this episode of The Lighting Controls Podcast, Mike Skurla, Chief Product Officer at Radix IoT, LLC, talks about how to take advantage of this developing market–and where lighting control fits.
The DALI Alliance recently extended DALI-2, which standardizes interoperability and control of LED drivers and sensors, with a version that more finely addresses the needs of the Internet of Things, which calls for individual device addressability, connectivity, and two-way data exchange.
The Lighting Controls Association now offers EE203: Lighting Controls and Energy Codes: California Title 24, Part 6 as a new course in its popular Education Express program.
Craig DiLouie, LC, CLCP recently had the opportunity to interview Martin Mercier, Marketing Manager, IOT/Connected Systems, Cooper Lighting Solutions. The topic: how electrical distributors can position and sell networked lighting controls.
In this episode of The Lighting Controls Podcast co-produced by the Lighting Controls Association and NAILD and sponsored by Toggled IQ, Gary Meshberg, LC, CLCP, LEED-AP, vice chair of the LCA and director of industry and market engagement for Digital Lumens/ENCELIUM, explains how to overcome reluctance to adopt advanced lighting controls.
On January 1, 2023, the 2022 version of California’s energy code—Title 24, Part 6 of the Building Standards Code—takes effect, superseding the previous 2019 version. In terms of lighting controls, the numerous changes include various clarifications and tuning along with two major provisions requiring occupant-sensing in offices larger than 250 sq.ft. and demand-responsive lighting controls. Designers and specifiers need to understand these changes before they begin working on code-covered new construction and alteration projects that will go out for permit in California in 2023.
The Zhaga Consortium is launching the global Zhaga Smart City Sensor Awards to address the needs of cities that have installed Zhaga-D4i certified streetlights.

The new incarnation of the Commercial Buildings Tax Deduction offers a strong incentive to stretching energy efficiency in new buildings and modernizing existing buildings. In new buildings, it incentivizes more detailed design and the most advanced control options. In existing buildings, it incentivizes a wide range of lighting and advanced control options that, when coupled with available utility rebates, can substantially reduce initial cost that remains the largest inhibitor to investment in reducing operating costs via energy efficiency.
Here’s the scenario: you are a lighting controls designer working on a project with a BAS that uses BACnet…
