bilevel-5The Lighting Controls Association recently published a whitepaper I wrote about a new California Lighting Technology Center (CLTC) study on bilevel occupancy sensors.

CLTC studied control strategies in eight private offices and found that combining occupancy sensing and bilevel switching produced the highest energy savings—about 50% more than using an occupancy sensor alone. These are dramatic savings—even higher than manual-ON sensors.

Check out the whitepaper here.

It is the only guide that highlights the most spectacular illuminated buildings, bridges and other remarkable sites in and around the Big Apple—and gives credit to the lighting designers who create all those magical and memorable sights of New York nights. From architectural masterpieces to the cutting edge of everything hip and trendy, if it has that special glow you can be sure NIGHTSEEING will show you the way to go.

Whether you are a first-time or frequent visitor to the city, a seasoned New Yorker or a lighting enthusiast, the one guide you will definitely want to have on hand is the new 2009 NIGHTSEEING Map with this self-guided walking tour: Lights, Camera, WALK. A Night Walking Guide to the Most Spectacular Lighting Designs of New York City.

IESNYC invites you to pick up a free copy at:

The Center for Architecture, 536 LaGuardia Place, NYC
GL Lites On Showroom, 511 West Canal Street, NYC
Times Square Information Center, 7th Ave, between 46th/47th Street

Lighting.com was founded in the 1990s and has since endeavored to serve as a portal for the lighting community. I buy advertising in their newsletter for one of my clients. But all the email addresses for my contacts are no longer working, emails to their general box go unanswered, the phone’s disconnected, they didn’t exhibit at Lightfair, and otherwise the site doesn’t appear to be updated. Does anybody know the story?
