Version 4.0 focuses on strengthening the value of NLC technology while addressing important issues for market acceptance. Based on comments received on Draft 1, the second draft includes updates on:
- Cybersecurity – the practice of defending networked systems and data from malicious attacks.
- Energy Monitoring – the capability of a system to report the energy consumption of a luminaire and/or a group of luminaires.
- Interoperability – the capability of lighting and/or building systems or components to connect to one another and function in a defined and appropriate manner.
With new language for these focus areas, the DLC aims to further accelerate the adoption and energy savings potential of networked lighting controls.
