UC Davis Institutional-Level Adaptive Controls for Exterior Lighting

02/24/2014

The Institutional-level Adaptive Controls for Exterior Lighting system incorporates exterior light points — pathways, building perimeters, parking lots, and roadways — into one smart, wireless system.

Originally launched as a pilot study, this system has since been installed for over 1,600 luminaires at the University of California, Davis.

LED Linear Retrofit Solutions and Advanced Lighting Control Systems for Small Commercial Retail Applications

Linear fluorescent lamps account for 83 percent of installed lamps in the California commercial sector per a lighting market characterization performed in 2014. LED lighting products are receiving attention for their potential to replace fluorescent lighting, reduce energy use and improve lighting quality in a variety of indoor commercial applications, including offices, classrooms and retail stores. LED alternatives to linear fluorescent lighting products fall into three main categories: linear retrofit lamp solutions, linear retrofits for troffers and dedicated luminaires.
