From the Ceiling to the Cloud: How Intelligent Lighting Gives Credence to the Promise of Smarter Buildings and Classrooms

Lighting is crucial to creating comfortable atmospheres conducive to effective working and learning. Just as important is understanding how your spaces are utilized and occupant preferences.
