This class introduces attendees to lighting controls and control strategies that save energy. Various strategies are explained such as occupancy and vacancy sensing, daylight harvesting, scheduling, lumen maintenance dimming, adaptation compensation, tuning, demand response, architectural dimming and direct occupant control. Examples of switches, relays, continuous dimming and step dimming are discussed as well as inputs including time clocks photo and occupancy sensors and demand response triggers. Sensor location and device settings such as sensitivity and time delay are explained.
This class is eligible for continuing education units from the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and the Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI).
