A lighting control system is an intelligent network-based lighting control solution that incorporates communication between various system inputs and outputs. This system uses one or more central computing devices. Lighting control systems are widely used on both indoor and outdoor lighting of commercial, industrial, and residential spaces. Lighting control systems serve to provide the right amount of light where and when it is required.
Lighting control systems are employed to maximize energy savings, satisfy building codes, or comply with green building and energy conservation programs. Lighting control systems can also be referred to as Smart Lighting. There are many categories of systems: centralized, distributed, standardized, wireless, stand-alone, and wall switch to mention a few.
