Wireless Lighting Control Seminar

  • Royal Glenora Club 11160 River Valley Road Northwest Edmonton, AB, T5J 2G7 Canada (map)

Wireless Lighting Control examines the many wireless protocols lighting control manufacturers are implementing today along with their benefits and detriments to our already crowded wireless atmosphere.  These new technologies, along with their communication, are becoming vastly more popular and well adopted in the commercial space; one strictly dictated by a constantly evolving energy code.  This presentation explores these protocols and offers helpful compliance paths to ease the daunting task commercial consultants face with the newest release of ASHRAE 90.1 2016.

Learning Objectives

  • Become aware of the wireless communication protocols available to manufacturers of controls and how they differ.

  • Discuss the benefits of wireless communication from an installation, scalability, and reconfiguration perspective.

  • Discuss various system reliability and security related measures.

  • Discuss ways wireless lighting control can aid in the compliance of ASHRAE 90.1 2016.
