Lighting designers must consider many factors when specifying lighting systems and lighting controls for their designs. In addition to considering the type of lighting fixture, they must also take into account daylighting, lighting controls, codes and standards, and other factors. To ensure these systems work as efficiently and effectively as possible, commissioning new systems (along with ongoing commissioning) is vital for success.
Challenge: Provide exceptional illumination within energy-consumption limits and dark-sky guidelines.
The new ceiling-mounted solar-powered occupancy sensor (PIR) for Bluetooth lighting control systems is maintenance-free, freely positionable, highly flexible and easy to install.
Engineers working on laboratory and research projects are tasked with balancing state-of-the-art systems, budgetary concerns, occupant safety, sustainable performance, and other factors including electrical, power, and lighting.

This presentation examines a real life example of this financing method and demonstrates its vast potential to the energy retrofit marketplace.
Hospitals, clinics, and similar facilities are among the most demanding an engineer can tackle—the technology is evolving rapidly, hospital managers are increasingly budget-conscious, and assist in saving lives.
Hospitals, clinics, and similar facilities are among the most demanding an engineer can tackle—technology is evolving rapidly, hospital managers are increasingly budget-conscious, and assist in saving lives. Here, electrical, power, and lighting challenges are addressed.
To ensure complex systems function as intended, a formal commissioning process needs to be established.
