Lights are omnipresent within every facility and surrounding built environments, with their placement providing an unrivaled vantage point to perceive the activities beneath them. When static lighting becomes connected and intelligent, packaged sensors enable systems to become dynamic and responsive.

We will discuss how lighting is undergoing a rapid transformation as LEDs become the top source of light in buildings. This is the single most important driver for the growth of Bus-based lighting controls and their convergence with IT Networks and integration into the Building Internet of Things (BIoT).

Intelligent sensors will further enhance the intelligence and control capabilities of HVAC, access, fire detection, intelligent evacuation, and other building systems. These advanced systems will include indoor positioning systems using Visual Light Communications (VLC) and other embedded beacon technologies to track the movement of people, equipment, and inventory within a facility.

Learning Objectives:
1. You’ll learn about the latest trends in smart lighting for the Smart Building market.
2. You’ll learn about how to prepare for connected lighting installation projects, the different strategies required for new installations vs. retrofit.
3. For experts and newcomers alike, you’ll learn about how modern smart lighting integrates with sensors, IoT, edge computing and building automation systems to add value to owners, facility managers and occupants.
