Key Quotes:

  • A lighting control is a larger (though not necessarily more complicated), automated way to control lighting, to give the user more capability of control of his lights over regularly turning them on and off.
  • You don’t even necessarily have to think about your lighting controls working. It just does it for you. We’re trying to achieve seamless integration with constant connectivity.
  • It can be as easy as turning on a light switch and it can be as complicated as having certain light fixtures turn on on certain days or at certain times or at certain light levels.
