Guide to IoT Lighting Applications
August 2020 <REVISED INTERNAL LINK>
The Guide to IoT Lighting Applications provides a high level overview of how lighting systems will support the Internet of Things (IoT) and impact on smart buildings and other applications.
It will look at a variety of scenarios providing guidance on each along with insights into some of the benefits and challenges associated with the development of connected lightingDownload
Guide to Wireless Lighting Systems
Wireless technologies have revolutionised how we interact with the world in our daily lives. We expect to access the internet wherever we go and we love the convenience of being able to access content wherever we are, or interact with devices remotely.
The Guide to Wireless Lighting Systems will illustrate how wireless technology is revolutionising the lighting industry by unlocking additional benefits, and indeed enhancing the overall user experience. There has been so much confusion within the market regarding wireless technology and we felt that as the Lighting Industry Association (LIA) we should attempt to demystify some of the jargon and expand on the benefits and possible weaknesses of wireless technology.Download
The Light Source Guide
The Light Source Guide aims to provide an introduction to the key lamp types available, with the objective of providing as much information as possible for the reader, whether they are new to lighting or even an experienced engineer or designer.Download
Lighting Control Guide
The Lighting Controls Guide is issued by the LIA to provide an understanding of the subject, help with terminology, an appreciation of the benefits, and information on how to gain expert and reputable advice.
The aims of this guide are:
Lighting Control: Mini Guide
The Lighting Control:Mini Guide provides an overview to lighting controls and describes the main benefits of a lighting control system.
The principal benefits of lighting controls are:
This guide describes each of these benefits and addresses central management and integration with other building control systems.Download
Lighting Control: Mini Guide - Combining with Emergency Lighting
In many lighting installations the lighting serves a dual purpose, with luminaires operating as normal building lighting in normal conditions, plus in an emergency, some of them illuminate to provide escape lighting. The LIA Mini-Guide to Combining Lighting Controls and Emergency Lighting outlines designs for a lighting installation that will serve both purposes without compromise.
The Lighting Control: Mini-Guide - Combining with Emergency Lighting includes sections on self-contained emergency luminaires and centrally supplied emergency luminaires and describes normal operation, emergency operation, and emergency testing.
It concentrates on the use of DALI control gear because energy efficient buildings call for dimming and DALI is the most widely used standard for dimming control, and the DALI standard is unique in that it includes specific provisions to realise dual-purpose lighting in a vendor-independent manner.Download
Lighting Controls: Mini Guide to Building Regulations Part L (2013) Compliance
TheLighting Controls: Mini Guide to Building Regulations Part L (2013) Compliance explains how lighting controls can be used to meet all of the requirements of the Building Regulations, Part L(2013), which came into force in April 2014. The regulations require a significant increase in lighting efficiency, for which Lighting controls will play a key role. The guide is mainly concerned with compliance with Part L2 – i.e. with buildings other than dwellings. Part L1 deals with dwellings and its controls requirements are addressed at the end of the guide.Download
