The User Experience of Smart Lighting Control

Smart lighting control systems are often associated with data analytics, human centric lighting, code compliance and responsible energy use, but ultimately it is the user experience that defines the success of a lighting installation. When user experience is thoroughly evaluated and included as part
of a proper systems set up, lighting can improve satisfaction and engagement, promote desirable work behaviors, and achieve the intent of smart lighting technology.

Color Metrics and TM-30

CRI has been found to have a few shortcomings when discovering the true color rendering and appearance of objects in the space, thus the need for a new, more specific metric, known as TM-30. We will discuss the differences in both CRI and TM-30, how to apply them effectively in your color sensitive projects, and when they should be considered most. The objective of this course is to solidify the understanding of color saturation and fidelity and explore ways to implement this knowledge
