Welcome to LEDs Magazine’s Connected SSL & Controls newsletter for April 10, 2023. From a personal perspective, I can appreciate that sometimes the most important concerns with delivering functional indoor spaces involve the outdoor conditions and daylight, which can be out of our control…to a point. In a recent magazine issue, writer Alex Pluemer explored how responsive LED lighting and hardware can be combined with software-driven building controls, shading, and even glazing treatments to balance electric and natural illumination and the associated indoor climate conditions for occupants. It’s highly interesting to me as I have access to an office space with lots of windows, but the ability to fine-tune our experience based on changing daytime conditions would be a level up from where we are right now.

Also in this issue:

  • Lighting Controls Association education director Craig DiLouie encapsulates several ways to begin with networked lighting controls.
  • We’ve also highlighted an excellent information resource from the LCA as one of our trusted media partners. If you’re running into NLC questions and need a little more general guidance, visit the linked page for a helpful guide on common issues.
  • Browse timely and targeted content from Endeavor Business Media colleagues on smart buildings, decarbonization, and a use case on progress toward net zero goals.

Daylight harvesting, lighting controls, and window technologies can work together to improve energy savings and maximize natural resources for illumination and heating and cooling.
Shifting views from lighting as an ongoing cost that should be minimized to viewing it as a tool that can produce organizational benefits beyond delivery of lumens will define the value of networked control systems.
In a blog extended from our editor's weekly newsletter column, CARRIE MEADOWS explains why the industry can't separate energy and cost concerns from innovation and evolution in lighting.
