The Next Generation Lighting Systems (NGLS) program evaluates today’s connected lighting systems in real-world installations, in order to identify challenges in installation and operation, reveal needed product improvements, and articulate principles and best practices that will reduce configuration complexity and enable system performance to meet expectations. LEARN MORE.

NGLS is launching the next phase of its indoor evaluations of connected lighting systems. The new phase will include the upgrade of existing systems, as well as the addition of new systems that are also marketed as easy to install and configure and consist of LED luminaires with integral, luminaire-level sensors and controls.

The initial phase, which began in 2017, evaluated 12 systems installed in working classrooms at The New School, Parsons School of Design in New York City.




NGLS has launched the first phase of its outdoor lighting evaluations, installing six connected lighting systems in parking lots at Virginia Tech Transportation Institute (VTTI) and beginning an evaluation process that will continue for the next two years.
