COURSE #: SIGNIFY 01
COURSE NAME: Connected Lighting: Lighting Beyond Illumination
CREDITS: 1.0 LU/HSW
EXPIRES: 2021
DESCRIPTION: As LEDs continue to penetrate the lighting market in many application areas, it is legislated requirements for controls which will ultimately drive the adoption of LEDs for general lighting in commercial space. This seminar explores how controls will drive the value of lighting far beyond illumination to connect people to the very spaces they inhabit and enable “the internet of things” indoors and out. Discover how connectivity in lighting has brought about change to enable us to sense, anticipate and respond to the world surrounding by enabling location-based services and information retrieval.
