CHALLENGING TIMES FOR COMMERCIAL LIGHTING CONTROL
Commercial lighting control systems have grown over the last 25 years and developed a mature and sophisticated range of solutions and integrators capable of delivery on specified needs.
A significant challenge the industry now faces is these aging systems are quickly becoming obsolete due to changes in security needs in commercial buildings; widespread use of ICN (Integrated Communication Networks) as a shared services platform for all building systems; and proliferation of sensor arrays, data collection and trending analysis.
What is clear is that a new generation of commercial lighting control system is needed to meet these challenges. One that is secure out-of-the-box, based on open communication standards like DALI and ethernet, and which makes ongoing system maintenance simpler, faster and easier.
