About this Webinar: In this webinar you will learn and understand how it is possible to achieve super energy efficiency by designing to use the most advanced LED lighting technologies and lighting controls systems.


You will be taken on a journey of discovery of technologies such as Power over Ethernet (PoE), Visible Light Communication (VLC) and Indoor Positioning Systems (IPS).


Philip will also take an in depth look at how daylight can be utilised in architectural projects to enhance energy efficiency in combination with daylight harvesting technology and be combined with Bluetooth Mesh technology or Casambi control systems.


Finally Philip will demonstrate how daylight calculations can be manually performed in Relux Desktop and how we can optimise the use of daylight in building projects.
