This course will explore how we use wireless controls to meet controls strategies and how wireless controls can provide a stepping stone into the connected world of the Internet of Things. We will look at the history that has brought lighting and controls to the point they are at today and discuss why wireless is now being seen as a leading solution for connected lighting applications. We will cover the most commonly used wireless control technologies and the basics of how they work in order to understand proper application and design. We will look at triggers in our controls application that may require Information Technology (I.T.) personnel involved as well as what information I.T. may need to assist with addressing access and security concerns.
