Wireless Lighting Control System
Preliminary Technology Assessment
What is This Technology?
This technology enables switches, ballasts, fixtures, and sensors from a variety of manufacturers to communicate as a single system by using wireless area controllers. The technology promises significant energy savings by enabling building operators to tailor lighting control to building characteristics and occupancy patterns in a way that is more easily reconfigured, and more cost effectively implemented than incumbent technologies offering similar levels of control.

Why is GSA Interested?
Lighting accounts for roughly 30% of total energy consumed by GSA buildings. Previous studies have shown that innovative lighting technologies have the greatest potential of any single building technology to substantially decrease the overall energy use of GSA’s portfolio.
