Event description
The bright way for architects and design professionals to earn up to five AIA Learning Units in a single day.

About this Event

Join Cloud9 Smart, along with the leading producers of smart lighting, at the beautiful Savant Experience Center in SoHo for a deep dive into the world of smart lighting.

Presenters from the cutting edge of the lighting world will share industry insight, upcoming innovations, and best practices for specification. Tailor your schedule across six sessions, and gain AIA Learning Units across the whole day.

Breakfast and lunch will be served, with drinks and coffee available throughout the day. Please also join us for the reception afterwards. Light fare and libations will be served with a musical accompaniment as we unwind after a busy day. This popular part of our event is a great time to relax and connect.

We are happy to answer any questions, or to help you create a personalized schedule. Reach us at architects@cloud9smart.com.

Light and Wellness: Design Ramifications of Circadian Lighting in the Built Environment

(1 AIA LU|HSW)

Sessions: I, 2, 5, 6

This course will explore the human evolution of circadian rhythm, along with the health implications of circadian disruption and how light impacts the circadian system. Implementation of capable systems, design considerations, and a conceptual discussion of applications will follow.

Learning Objectives

  • Define circadian rhythm and how it impacts the human body’s sleep/wake cycle
  • Identify the five controllable lighting parameters that have a circadian impact.
  • Differentiate between the two primary circadian metrics and use the Circadian Stimulus calculator to determine successful design for circadian entrainment.
  • Execute four lighting design techniques to create a circadian focused solution.

WELL Designed Lighting Controls

(1 AIA LU/1.0 GBCI CE Hours)

Sessions:1, 4, 5, 6

Lighting and controls improve the built environment not only through energy efficiency, but by improving comfort, well-being, and productivity.

The WELL Building Standard understands the importance of lighting and controls toward improving the built environment for people. This session reviews the WELL Building Standard v1, and shows how proper lighting, daylighting, and controls contribute to WELL certification.

Learning Objectives:

  • By reviewing the WELL Building Standard v1, you will be able to explain its purpose and structure.
  • After analyzing the Light Features 53-63 of the WELL Building Standard v1, you will be able to describe the requirements to meet each of the features.
  • By comparing the LEED v4 and WELL Building Standard v1, you will be able to identify key lighting related overlaps among the two building rating systems.
  • Through examination of a real world WELL Platinum Certified project, you will be able to describe how the project achieved most of the Light Features in the WELL Building Standard v1 Light Concept Area.

Next Generation Residential Lighting & Controls

(1 AIA LU|HSW)

Sessions: 3, 4, 5

This course introduces participants to the latest technologies available for easily controlling intelligent lighting fixtures. It also explores the impact WRGB and tunable white LED technology how on an occupant's circadian rhythm cycles. Other topics include user interface considerations, energy management, and high vs low voltage control.

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants learn the history of lighting and lighting controls. "How did we get here?", "What were the challenges faced by designers, engineers, integrators, electrical contractors and home owners?"
  • Participants learn the features and health benefits of next generation lighting fixture LED technology. There's more than "wow factor, there's real science behind the benefits of circadian rhythm lighting temperatures.
  • Participants gain a basic understanding of the technology behind "driving" and wiring high performance, intelligent LED fixtures.
  • Participants learn the benefits of the latest user interfaces that strip out all of the complications formally associated with keypads, touch screens and apps by stream lining the user experience.

Tunable White: How you can minimize risk and satisfy your clients

(1 AIA LU|HSW)

Sessions: 2, 3, 4

Guiding participants through the different types of light spectrum control. This course will discuss the color tuning abilities of tunable white fixtures and their design challenges, and conclude with ways to reduce risk and meet your client’s sequence of operations requirements.

Learning Objectives:

  • The different types of light spectrum control
  • The color tuning abilities of tunable white fixtures
  • Design challenges
  • How to reduce risk and meet client’s sequence of operations requirements on color tuning projects

A Guide to Low-Voltage, Intelligent LED Lighting Systems

(1 AIA LU|HSW)

Sessions: 1, 2, 3, 6

LED lighting is now the solution for commercial and residential spaces. It allows for greater sustainability as a part of the built space, both in terms of large-scale environmental impact, and locally for occupants. We will compare and contrast the methods for delivering power to LEDs, and review how a low-voltage, DC distribution system topology is implemented.

Learning Objectives:

  • Explore the differences between topologies of line voltage and low voltage: POE and low voltage cable. How existing line voltage can retrofit with fixtures that have the driver on board versus low voltage (POE and 18-2) systems.
  • Identify the components of a low-voltage, DC system design for intelligent LED lighting; Understand the characteristic differences between remote driver and on-board drivers and the effects on room occupants of intelligent vs. passive systems.
  • Learn the importance of a coordinated system that includes power, fixtures and control from a specification and component standpoint. Explore interior design benefits for various stakeholders from aesthetic, wellness, and usability perspectives.
  • Examine the future of low voltage power distribution via the benefits of these systems including, tunable white light, energy and efficiency from the perspective of both environmental and project cost.
