We assist with events for our affiliate groups such as University student architecture body SONA, and graduate architect group eMAGN.
Getting Colour Right and Internet of Lights
Quality of Light – many studies show that quality of light affects everything from retail sales to the satisfaction and productivity of office workers. So, how do you specify for quality?
Integration, ease of use, apps and cloud based services are driving the unprecedented success of smart mobile devices and are affecting the future of many industries which had an established and secure position in their markets.
Lighting – and for that matter the building management industry – is not exempt from this revolution.
App and cloud based services are enabled by the integration of sensor and connectivity components in LED lights. Lights are installed virtually everywhere, have (electrical) power, have access to spaces and form a dense network of ‘service nodes’: the ‘internet of lights’.
Many types of services could be provided by such a network, such as light maintenance and management services (through implementation of on-board diagnostic sensor and monitor functions), indoor location services (through Bluetooth and optical beacon technology) etc.
But how is this transition going to unfold? How do sensors and connectivity devices get integrated into luminaries? What types of wireless and wired connectivity are required? 3S Lighting will present Xicato’s technology contribution and will share its vision of these topics in this talk.
Presented by Ales Vasenda, MIES – 3S Lighting Date: Thursday 23 November
Time: 12.30pm - 2pm
Venue: Harbourview, 150 Wharf Rd Newcastle

The Australian Institute of Architects and its participating members offer education to graduates on the practice of architecture through the national PALS program. It is comprised of 15 online modules integrated with face to face tutorials facilitated by practicing architects and local experts and held in the local state and territory offices. The emphasis is on adult learning principles so you study the online modules in your own time and attend sessions that give you an opportunity to gain expert advice, share knowledge amongst your peers and get in touch with a broad range of Institute events.
The Regional Division base a PALS course in the Newcastle over 3 consecutive Saturdays - dates to be advised for 2017.
The course is a personal and interactive program for a small number of students. This more intimate discussion format enables more detailed group discussions. Note that if numbers do not reach eight, the course will be cancelled and a full refund will be offered to those registered.
