Lighting controls have been in place for decades ranging from simple switches to fully integrated solutions that can interface with various building devices for additional capabilities. The implementation of these controls has largely been complex from a design point of view and labor intensive due to the pulling and re-routing of high and low voltage wiring. With all high technology solutions, evolution occurs and improvements in how to communicate and connect has produced another incredibly efficient means of providing control solutions for lighting. Additionally it offers a platform to continue generating cost savings and improve efficiency continually.
