Comparing and Selecting a Lighting Controls
Event Description

This intermediate-level class will guide designers, engineers, and other specifiers in selecting a lighting control system during the early design process and keeping that design on track as the project develops. We will discuss using the DesignLights Consortium’s Qualified Networked Lighting Controls product list as a tool to help you narrow options down. Attendees will depart this training session with a greater understanding of the types of decisions they need to ask their clients for input on and the types of design considerations they need so they can achieve an operable, maintainable, and efficient control system.
