Lighting controls allow homeowners to control lights, ceiling fans,
and small appliances from anywhere in the home, without the
need for new wiring or expensive master controllers.
Lighting controls can be integrated into a home for single room,
multi-room, or whole-house systems. The intent of this course is
to discuss the role of lighting in design, and more specifically,
how lighting controls can impact the lives of occupants and
performance of a home, including enhanced energy efficiency.
