  • This is part 1 of a two part course titled Architecture for Light. The course - as a whole - examines design considerations for creating built environments which embrace light.

  • In this session, physical characteristics of outdoor space will be discussed alongside the importance of pedestrian reassurance. Our RP-43 discussion will walk attendees through thoughtful examples and the ground-breaking illuminance recommendations of pedestrian applications. Spoiler alert, you may achieve better results using less light.

  • With design and reassurance at its core, this session will walk you through LP-2, describing pedestrian vision, lighting design considerations, and the design process for outdoor pedestrian spaces.

  • IoT, Connected Lighting, Smart Lighting, Smart Buildings are all terms that could be used to describe this topic and it certainly can it be confusing. This presentation will delve into and summarize the recent IES Lighting Practice LP-12-21 to make sure that it is easy to understand. During our journey we will clarify the necessary terms around IoT, understand the value of the problems that connected lighting can solve, discover different use cases and their benefits. This presentation will also explain the technologies used in connected lighting and the applications they are used in. We will outline how to specify connected lighting throughout the project life cycle. The course will explain cybersecurity requirements as well as integration and customer acceptance. Finally, the course will highlight the future state of connected lighting.

  • An introduction to the interconnected concept of synergistic systems through IoT connectivity within the built world.

  • An overview of the capabilities of tunable white luminaires, differing light spectrum controls, and the related design challenges.

  • This webinar will look back at the background of circadian metrics, and look forward to the opportunities and challenges facing the future development and implementation of circadian metrics in the built environment.

  • Did you know the IES has an “official” method to measure light? This webinar will show you a few of the adopted methods for correctly measuring lighting in the field.

  • Providing a successful lighting design for a modern industrial facility is a complex task and in common with other lighting applications, the LED revolution is having a major impact. However, there is a lack of readily available advice for industrial facilities wishing to update their lighting technology to deal with the wide variety of applications found in an industrial environment. This session will discuss some of the basic issues relevant to industrial lighting from the recently issued ANSI/IES RP-7-17 Recommended Practice for Lighting of Industrial Facilities, with emphasis on the efficient replacement of legacy lighting by the appropriate LED system. This includes the establishment of a suitable maintenance program to ensure that issues such as lumen degradation, particularly dirt depreciation, lifetime issues, and lamp replacement scenarios are addressed in a timely manner. The session will end with a brief discussion of some aspects of lighting health and safety in an industrial environment.

  • This webinar examines the components and guidance resident in the current version of the standard. Additionally, we’ll discuss proposed subject areas for the next version of this exciting initiative.
