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.

Most lighting control systems on the market today are advertising seamless integration with other building systems. Lighting controls are integrating with Building Automation Systems (BAS), temperature control systems, fire alarm systems, security systems, and others. Integration has great promise to enhance the built environment, and is advertised to operate flawlessly. However, in practice, the reality of these new technologies, once implemented, can be considerably different. To get the most out of these systems, it is necessary to balance the actual needs of the facility and operations with the complexity of the systems. The more complex the system becomes, more potential exists for operational problems that will limit the usability of the system.
