Clint_s Controls Corner Logo Each month, our Lighting Controls Department Manager, Clint Conley, offers insight and advice about lighting controls. Clint, a licensed professional electrical engineer, brings over 15 years of construction, engineering, and lighting controls experience to the table. He takes the often confusing topic of lighting controls, and presents information in a straightforward and concise manner.

Lighting controls technology is advancing at a fast pace. The latest in sensor technologies is increasing the ability and value of integrating the lighting control system with other systems, such as security systems, mechanical systems, and other systems that can provide detailed data on how occupants are utilizing spaces.
UL has published a white paper that highlights these uses, and details information about current sensors on the market today and the standards by which the sensors are tested. The goal of these standards is to ensure that all sensors provide predictable and reliable operation for the life of the lighting control system.
