Welcome to LEDs Magazine’s Connected SSL & Controls newsletter for Nov. 14, 2022. As our Mark Halper has observed many times, the road to fully connected, intelligent lighting and controls has been long and winding. As integrated lighting and building systems continue to slowly gain traction, we have seen some companies focusing on the additional energy-savings benefits of connected SSL and controls and decarbonization over the data-enabled applications. And we should see even greater gains with improved, next-generation SSL products applied in thoughtful designs. Still, larger lighting companies moving ahead with connectivity lately have been hiring for expertise outside the lighting sector, demonstrated by Europe’s Glamox and Fagerhult, as LEDs has reported. Executives like CEO Astrid Simonsen Joos, with communications and information technology experience, may establish common ground between lighting companies and pure-play IT and service providers.

Don’t forget to register for upcoming webinars on leveraging LED attributes in well-designed systems to properly address blue light, light trespass, and optimized placement of light, as well as the interplay of linear lighting and wireless controls for elegant color-changing effects. They will also be available on demand. And our colleagues at Smart Buildings Technology have an excellent virtual event program scheduled for this Wednesday, Nov. 16, that you should attend if you have a need for new insights from leaders in the architecture, engineering, construction, and ownership and operations sector.

Please stay in touch about content we publish and to propose contributed articles.
