Applying Wireless Technologies to Connected Lighting as a Catalyst for the Internet of Things
This course will explore how we use wireless controls to meet controls strategies and how wireless controls can provide a stepping stone into the connected world of the Internet of Things. We will look at the history that has brought lighting and controls to the point they are at today and discuss why wireless is now being seen as a leading solution for connected lighting applications. We will cover the most commonly used wireless control technologies and the basics of how they work in order to understand proper application and design. We will look at triggers in our controls application that may require Information Technology (I.T.) personnel involvement as well as what information I.T. may need to assist with addressing access and security concerns. Finally, we will discuss the role that wireless connected lighting is playing in the Internet of Things with real world examples of how it is being used today.
•Participants will gain an understanding of how the quest for energy savings has driven the evolution of lighting and control approaches towards a connected wireless platform, including the benefits of implementing wireless lighting controls over traditional lighting controls
•Participants will gain an understanding of the different types of standardized wireless controls technologies and learn important basic practices to ensure that wireless control operation is optimized
•Participants will gain an understanding of when it may be necessary to involve Information Technology (I.T.) personnel and how to address access and security concerns
•Through examination of industry trends, participants will gain an understanding of how connected lighting is being used in the implementation of the Internet of Things (IoT) and will learn important criteria to assist in future-proofing system selections
