Managing the natural and artificial light in space opens the question of when and how to implement stand-alone vs. interoperable light control systems. This one-hour course provides an overview of how to best utilize the benefits of natural light with proper daylighting strategies in conjunction with integrated control systems.

HSW Justification:
Daylight management is a key to occupant health and well-being in a building. Too much daylight causes visual discomfort, but access to natural light is the key element of human health. Shades contribute to overall occupant comfort in a facility, which contributes to occupant wellness. This course discusses the importance of properly daylighting a space and how shades play an important role.
