Next-generation lighting: the emergence of PoE for lighting and controls
Historically lighting controls have always had a singular responsibility—manage the lights. Additionally they have largely operated over electrical circuitry (a combination of high- and low-voltage wires) that is costly, sometimes complicated, and often difficult to commission and operate.
