THE GREEN LIGHT: LightFair® 2015 Overview

Posted by Claudia Barbiero on May 29, 2015 11:26:00 AM

We at Crestron extend a special thank you to all those who visited and spent time at our booth during LightFair International 2015 in New York City. We had an amazing time meeting everyone and sharing information.  

Throughout the conference, a full curriculum of lighting and design education, from lighting basics to advanced lighting control system designs, was presented. The expo showcased more new and exciting lighting products and technologies than ever before! Many attendees told us they are focused on getting the most out of LED fixtures, such as energy efficiency, proper dimming, and color temperature adjustments. Of course, this led to a lot of questions about how to navigate all the different types of lighting control systems. 

Kizoa slideshow: LIGHTFAIR 15 SLIDESHOW - Slideshow

We know it was a lot to see and learn, so with LightFair all wrapped up, we’d like to share some highlights.  We showcased a game-changing approach to lighting control system design, where all you need to know are the needs of the space, nothing more. No more wading through technical specifications or dealing with complex programming!

This breakthrough solution is Crestron SpaceBuilder and the reaction from attendees was overwhelming!  We demonstrated how SpaceBuilder dramatically reduces the time required to complete each phase of a lighting control project. Attendees were wowed that a lighting control system could be designed so easily, and in the same way that fixtures are specified – for any size space.
Here are just a few of the SpaceBuilder advantages:

  • Quotes and submittals are complete in record time
  • Each system ships complete in one box
  • Pre-programmed for fast commissioning and startup
  • Each space can be networked for seamless integration



We also showed our simple to use online filter  that allows you to select the optimal SpaceBuilder system for your lighting design. These systems were all on display at our booth – here are a few highlighted system video demos from the show floor:

  • GLPYNG: Wireless lighting control system for small and medium spaces that is perfect for retrofit spaces
  • GLDALI: Ideal for medium to large spaces that need flexibility to reconfigure zones, adjust color temperature, or control ambient and task lighting within the same space
  • GLDMX: Ideal for controlling both DMX and architectural lighting scenarios in applications such as lobbies, exteriors, banquet halls, restaurants and entertainment venues. This is also designed for small to medium sized theaters or auditoriums.
  • GLPAC: Ideal for medium sized spaces needing switching and dimming that require expansion modules, touch screens, additional sensors, shade, and AV integration.
Crestron Fusion® Site View
We also unveiled our latest advancement in Crestron Fusion Enterprise Management Software. Site View  provides multi-layered, 360-degree 3D visualization of a building and all the spaces within. You can easily monitor the status of any space and quickly take control if necessary. From a web browser you can:
  • View the entire structure or spaces floor by floor – even adjacent spaces, such as parking lots
  • View based on status, occupancy, lights on or off, and more
  • Pan, rotate, and zoom structures and spaces
  • Take action based on live data collected by Crestron Fusion
  • Take immediate control of spaces  - turn lights on or off, or enable/disable occupancy sensors and photocells
Check out the video of Crestron Fusion Site View from our show, below.

Free Training Course
With the overall success of the Crestron booth at LightFair International 2015, Crestron wants to make LightFair last all year long by providing you with the opportunity to register for a free, two day Specifier Training Course at our headquarters in Rockleigh, NJ. These courses are given all year long to help you learn how to design lighting control systems quickly and easily.

Time to Show What We Can Do

LightFair 2014

Thank you to everyone who attended this year’s LightFair in Las Vegas! By all accounts, this year was an especially great conference and exposition.

But we also know that it’s tough to make it to every event in our industry and that you have to pick and choose where you can go – usually based on what you can really get out of it. Believe it or not, manufacturers also have this same quandary. While we exhibit at a lot of lighting shows, conferences and events; sometimes it is just as important for us to experience the show as attendees. We were lucky to have this opportunity at this year’s Light + Building Expo in Frankfurt, where Crestron was both an exhibitor and an attendee.

LightFair Welcome

This event is by far the largest in our industry – from expansive displays of unique lighting fixtures to integrated building technologies featuring the latest in conservation and energy reduction. There was tremendous interest in the Crestron booth, where we showcased how integrated control systems are invaluable in getting the most out of lighting design and building automation.

But we were also able to experience the show as attendees, taking in nine different halls of lighting innovation from around the world. From the industry’s drive to use renewable resources more efficiently, to the flexibility afforded by open standards, it was clear exhibitors were focused on solutions that leverage integrated and scalable building control solutions. And of course there was a universe of amazing LED fixtures to explore!

What I quickly realized as an “attendee” at the show, was that the array of products and different solutions available is really overwhelming. I couldn’t help but ask myself, “how do specifiers sort through all the options available and make sense of it all?” I really took it as my charge to learn what Crestron can do better as an “exhibitor” to make sure attendees walk away knowing why Crestron “makes sense” for them for every application—from technology, to product selection, to specification tools, to world-class support. 

The answer I arrived at is actually pretty simple. We need to be a better partner for lighting specifiers. That means:

  • Provide better education for specifiers: such as with our training coursesand hand's-on demonstrations in our experience centers and showrooms

  • Develop easier tools to navigate the selection and design of lighting control systems such as with Autodesk Revit® or AutoCAD® software 

  • Speed the design of lighting control systems with a professional hotline for all specifier questions - whether all you need is a quick one-line, a full submittal package, or a BOM and quote quickly.

  • Provide comprehensive testing of new LED fixtures to ensure they will dim properly

But the great part of industry events — it isn’t all work! We also got to have some fun in downtown Frankfurt as we checked out many of the Luminale installations. Throughout the city – inside churches, in public spaces, buildings and bridges – light is used as a medium to bring sculptures, installations and demonstrations by artists, architects and designers to life. Our camera was overloaded with images and videos of these “light happenings,” such as this one:

Orkhestra Luminale Day & Night

Luminale light installation from Crestron Electronics, Inc. on Vimeo.

This piece transformed LED lights into something organic and alive. Between the shapes and the movement of light, the interplay of moving color with changing intensity, the experience was not only hypnotic, but also strangely soothing. Seeing inspiring installations such as this helped us realize that our luminaire partners are such a big part of what we do at Crestron. And it’s why we decided to bring working fixtures to our future events to allow attendees to experience what lighting control offers.

This is the thought process that led us to our booth at LightFair this year. While we have many new products that help round out a lighting control solution, we presented them in really easy to understand demonstrations. We grouped products together so that a specifier could quickly see that, while there are many different technologies that could be used in one type of application, the simplest solution is often the best.

Visitors were able to see everything from how to put together a simple switching solution, to the seemingly unlimited ways to group and control open floor plans with DALI. We worked with a variety of fixture partners to ensure that we had unique and appropriate fixtures working live as part of each of our demonstrations. Across the booth, attendees were able to interact with our systems and interfaces on their own—a feature which garnered excellent feedback from all.

Keep reading to see what else we did and learn about the key technologies and products we showcased this year!

Is the world ready for a completely wireless lighting control system?

Trend Topic 2

The recent launch of our 277V wireless wall box dimmer and switches, wireless GLPP room controller, and wireless sensors has compelled us to look back at the history of our wireless control solutions.

When we initiated our infiNET EX product line of wireless wall box dimmers, switches, and thermostats seven years ago, they were intended to be retrofit residential products. We never even considered a completely wireless commercial building, at that time. Even considering the obvious benefits – reduced costs of wiring and labor, simplified growth strategy, flexibility, and “retrofitability” – most commercial lighting professionals feel that wired systems are best for complex facilities because wireless just isn’t as reliable. But is that true still?

Over the last few years we’ve gained a great deal of knowledge about wireless networks and how to get them to perform consistently – and with the same reliable operation and performance that customers expect from wired systems. We used our experience to build a better protocol so that we could control the performance of our network. This protocol, infiNET EX, is a mesh-based, 2.4 GHz network that automatically reconfigures to optimize performance. It actually becomes more reliable as more devices are added to the network.

But there were still challenges to overcome. With advances in technology and good old engineering, we’ve solved them. For example, on some wireless (and wired) systems, you can have an issue with multiple-light installations where each fixture’s response can be subject to lags. As a result, they don’t all respond simultaneously (with the same light level) when commanded to do so. This “popcorning” is the unintended consequence of a network that has failed to be managed for performance.

Another challenge was how to get acceptable lifetime from battery-powered devices. This has been improved with advances in technology, along with semiconductors that boast higher efficiency. We’ve taken it further with excellent power management schemes and with support of different levels of battery powered and “sleepy” devices. We can now get up to 10 years of life for a battery occupancy sensor.

Taking wireless even further, we’ve shared our technology with specific third-party partners to build and supply devices on our wireless network. Crestron Connected™ products, such as door locks, mini bars, and MUR/DND panels now natively communicate on Crestron infiNET EX.

All of these advances have fostered a much more open-minded reception to wireless solutions in commercial spaces. Facility managers are starting to not only take notice, but install completely wireless solutions in their buildings. In fact, Crestron customers have completed installations with literally tens of thousands of devices in one building.

So, is the world ready for a completely wireless lighting control system? The answer, with Crestron, is yes. We bring a rich set of wireless devices that are engineered to work together and perform better than any other set of products on the market. The portfolio includes wireless lighting controls, shade controls, climate controls, sensors, and human interface devices. Read more about the latest additions to our wireless solutions in this issue of The Green Light.
