Attend Lighting Control Education Events with Wattstopper Products

It’s more than just a well-lit room. Lighting controls today include the integration of energy-saving, code-complying technology that transforms the space and keeps the well-being of the space’s occupants a top priority. 

Wattstopper offers a variety of webinars and events throughout the year to keep you informed of the latest developments in lighting control technology, and provides you with the resources to integrate these solutions into your building system. Our offering includes topics like commercial lighting controls, human centric lighting, automated shading, energy code, WELL building standards, and more. 

Some of our featured courses are AIA CES-approved and are valid for 1 LU|HSW credit. 

New events coming soon!

How do you know networked lighting controls meet IoT cybersecurity standards? Gain a baseline understanding of networked lighting control security measures that will help you ensure your specified networked lighting controls meet your client’s security requirements. As IoT devices, networked lighting controls can carry security risks and vulnerabilities that expose networks to hackers. Take the first step in building your knowledge of cybersecurity standards for NLCs with this Networked Lighting Control Security Basics AIA while earning one continuing education credit (1 LU/HSW). Join us on Tuesday, June 15th at 1 p.m. CST as we discuss the current IoT cybersecurity vulnerabilities and how networked lighting controls are protected.

The International Energy Conservation Code (IECC 2018) is one of the most widely adopted energy codes in the US. In this 1-hour session, one of Legrand's energy code experts, Harold Jepsen, will review the lighting control requirements of this important energy efficiency standard. Each provision is presented with the core requirements, applicability to specific building space types and requirement key exceptions. He will also address the upcoming release of IECC 2021.

Tunable white lighting technology is defined as the ability to control a light source’s color temperature output. It is also referred to as variable white, dim to white, hybrid white, or custom temperature lighting and is referenced as a key aspect to human-centric lighting design. In this 1-hour course, Christian Groom, Product Manager for Wattstopper’s Human-Centric Lighting offering, will walk the audience through several aspects of this new technology including: current solutions in the market, practical applications and “how to” info in the specification of tunable light projects, pairing of tunable Lighting with Controls, and creating an energy-code compliant sequence of operations.

How do we make buildings healthier and move beyond simply “less bad” in the built environment construction projects? In this 1-hour course, Joe Gohn, National Sales Director, will review the Fitwel Certification System developed by the GSA and CDC and administered by the Center for Active Design. Fitwel is organized around specific incremental changes that will foster a healthier workplace. In the built environment today, this rating system can be applied to Multi-Tenant, Single-Tenant, or Commercial spaces. Lighting and Lighting Controls play a key role in any Fitwel project.

Lighting and shading go hand in hand, but how do you design the best integrated system to take advantage of natural daylight? In this 1-hour session, shading expert Dawn Stuckey will speak to the variety of options for lighting control and shade systems and tie it all together to design the best possible daylighting strategy.

Product transparency has moved from the sidelines to the mainstream in recent years, with manufacturers across a wide selection of product categories publishing Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs), Health Product Declarations (HPDs), Declare Labels, and other forms of transparency documentation. In this one-hour moderated panel, we will review why project teams should be seeking out product transparency documentation for high performance buildings, provide an overview of EPDs, HPDs, and Declare Labels and how manufacturers can use them to improve products. We will also discuss how the industry is collaborating to advance product transparency through efforts such as the Living Product 50 and A&D Materials Pledge, and databases such as mindful MATERIALS.

Known as the most ambitious and stringent certification available to the built environment, the Living Building Challenge can seem out of reach. In this 1-hour session, our building rating system expert, Joe Gohn, provides an easy to understand look at the LBC and its lighting control opportunities.
