Webinar: Taming Controls Complexity

September 1, 2022 12:00 PM ET

Challenges with configuration, commissioning, and maintaining control settings over time have slowed progress towards integrated lighting and building system controls. Overcoming such challenges can enable energy savings, adaptive lighting for occupant alertness and wellbeing, and better space management in buildings. This webinar will explore some practical solutions to address controls complexity, including development of a clear and concise sequence of operations, the use of controls narratives, and online tools and templates to make these solutions more accessible.

Webinar participants are eligible for one (1) IES Continuing Education Unit (CEU).
