Why do we want to talk about security? Security implementations in Lighting Control Systems is major differentiator. Increasing numbers of networked devices, their hardware, software, and communications must be secured. Yet few of us have a security background. This presentation provides an overview of wireless lighting security basics: concerns around wireless devices, definitions on Authentication, Encryption, and Certificates, and considerations for implementing security in wireless lighting controls.
Webinar participants are eligible for one (1) IES Continuing Education Unit (CEU).
