NCAEE Chapter Meeting – Smart Affordable LED Lighting System Lessons and Application


January Meeting 

Join us January 25th with Phil Korest and his experience selecting and using a smart LED lighting system 

I’ve been looking for an LED lighting system that is flexible, smart and affordable as long as I’ve been an energy manager (and before!).  Trust me, hitting all three is hard, especially the affordable part.  I wanted it for public spaces where the lights had integrated sensors, I didn’t have to worry about batteries dying, and I didn’t have to run special wires for dimming or sensors.  Well I found a system that ticks all those boxes and is very affordable not much more than a standard light.  These lights communicate wirelessly and are configured either by a switch or a phone app.  This wireless communication allows for creative grouping and dimming strategies that would be very difficult to implement with a wired system.   
In this meeting, I’ll share a little bit about the system, how it works, strengths and weaknesses and an estimate of the additional savings that the sensors can save.  


Please RSVP below so we know approximately how many are attending.
