IoT Connected lighting systems provide challenges as well as opportunities for the Design Team and Owner. Lighting has the ability to take on a key role in developing a connected space. Ardra Zinkon is currently serving as the Co-Chair of the IES IoT Connected Lighting Committee developing a Design Guide for the Industry. She'll be co-presenting on the topic next week at LEDucation in New York with two of her committee colleagues, Jered Widmer and Paula Ziengenbien.
Tec Studio president, Ardra Zinkon has been elected to serve as Co-Chair for the newly formed IoT Connected Lighting Committee for the Illuminating Engineering Society. Ms. Zinkon developed the initial outline for the committee with the goal of creating a Design Guide as the initial publication of the organization. This Technical Committee will research and develop best practices and standards that
encompass connectivity in the built environment through the implementation of lighting products and lighting equipment. The guide will be applicable to multiple market sectors including: Smart Cities, Hospitality, Retail, Education, Corporate, Healthcare and Transportation.
