Hi Manny,

I'm curious, why is your facilities department looking to replace Lutron? We 
are being asked to look at them as a lighting control solution on our campus.


Thanks,

Mike

Subject: [WIRELESS-LAN] Anyone have experience with wireless lighting and 
contol systems?


Our facilities department is looking to upgrade some of our lighting 
infrastructure to use lower power LED light fixtures.  One of the proposals is 
to replace all the lighting and the existing Lutron lighting control system 
with a relatively new Eaton WaveLinx wireless lighting system.



Unfortunately, the vendors who came in couldn’t even explain what spectrum(s) 
the infrastructure would run on.  A quick review indicates that the controllers 
operate on WiFi or wired LAN for control access and 802.15.4 for communication 
(@ 2.4MHz) between all the various devices (dimmers, switches, occupancy 
sensors, lights, etc).  Each controller currently operates as a standalone 
since they still don’t have a centralized management environment and they’re 
single user access only.



We’re particularly concerned about any potential interference issues that might 
arise within our existing and future wireless environments.  I was wondering 
whether anyone has any familiarity with this or similar environments and 
whether you’d be willing to share your thoughts and experiences on them.





Regards,

Manny
