Abstract

Lighting control equipment is reviewed with respect to its role in the building application. The elements of a control system include the light controller, sensor, and communicator. Each type of equipment has a best use that depends on the specific control strategies and application. The applications discussed are retrofit, renovation, and new construction. The simplest controls are best used in retrofits where installation costs must be minimized. In new construction the most sophisticated controls can be cost-effective.
