Lighting control enables occupants and facilities managers to regulate both the quality and quantity of light within a given space. While newer technologies have greatly expanded the offerings available to building designers, there are a number of variables that must be considered, including building codes, energy efficiency of the systems, and impacts to a building’s occupants. This presentation will provide an overview of lighting control options, and how they can be utilized to meet code requirements, enhance a building’s energy performance, and positively impact interior environments.
- Attendees will recognize energy efficiency code requirements, including both the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) and ASHRAE 90.1, and understand their impacts on a building’s occupants.
- Attendees will evaluate appropriate uses of lighting controls, and determine areas where these control systems may have a negative impact on the health, safety, or welfare of a building’s occupants.
- Attendees will utilize lighting systems to enhance interior environments for occupants by incorporating lighting scene controls, occupancy/vacancy controls, dimming systems, and daylight harvesting systems.
- Attendees will recognize options to integrate building systems for enhanced control. Integration of fire alarm, security, BMS, and lighting can create a safer and more function environment for occupants.
