This course is designed to teach you all the features and benefits of LED lighting. It will go into depth on which systems work the best with LED lighting, the components of an LED system, and how they differentiate from a normal lighting system. It will also explain the efficacy and reliability of an LED system, how it will save you money and time.

Learning Objectives:
1. Describe the features and benefits of LEDs as a general illumination light source, and the applications that are best suited to LEDs

2. Explain the components of an LED system and how each of these components must be compatible with one another to ensure efficient, effective, and reliable operation

3. Compare existing control types and standards to identify the differences between power line, 3 wire, and low voltage control (analog and digital)

4. Recognize LED drivers as a critical component in LED lighting systems and identify their important characteristics

How Lighting Affects your Health, Safety, and Wellness

Course # AIA 1.0 LU/HSW / Not formally approved with IDCEC at this time.

November 4th – 11 am – 12 pm EST

Course Description: Navigating architects on how light affects our environment regarding our health, safety, and welfare. A few of the themes are circadian focused lighting, flicker, glare, lighting and safety, lighting and perception, color temperature, and the impact of poorly designed lighting in our exterior environments. Attendees will gain knowledge of valuable lighting design facts which can be implemented in their future designs.

Learning Objectives:

1. Understanding the potential health implications of our built environment. How well implemented Circadian lighting and the positive effects it has to sync our biological clock and showcasing relevant applications. Conversely, how flicker and glare should be avoided, and the potential health implications such as headaches, eye strain, and fatigue.

2.  On the safety portion of this presentation, we discuss the importance of following codes, ordinances, and mandates as well as following the lighting recommendations (the IES lighting handbook). We also discuss the perception of safety and what can be done to enhance the perception of safety in our public spaces.

3. How different lighting strategies in the same space can create a different perception for the user and their comfort. We address public vs. private space, larger spaces vs. smaller spaces, and how lighting can help elevate the human experience.

4. Providing guidelines and recommendations to architects and designers so they can avoid any of the negative implications of poorly designed lighting in architectural environments while enhancing the spaces for their intended user experience.

News & Updates

BTA is now BOCA TECH AND AUTOMATION

You might be asking yourself, “Why is BTA changing their name after nearly 20 years in business?”. Well, to tell you the truth, we had been thinking about changing our name for years to better match our broad technology footprint, but it seemed there was never a good time to do it. We also wondered how important it was relative to the effort it would take to execute a name change. Then the pandemic hit. While tragic in so many ways, it immediately enlightened us as to what having the word “theater” in our name really means for web searches and our ever growing social media footprint. We could not have planned an experiment on this grand of a scale if we tried. When everyone immediately stopped searching for movie theater tickets, our web search results related to theater dropped off too. And when all of this “digital noise” went quiet, we found that our actual message was a lot more effective! This is why we think now is the perfect time to take this over searched term out of our name and execute the plan we’ve had in our back pocket for the past five+ years!
