Warrenton, VA — The Home Lighting Control Alliance (HLCA) is renewing membership for a third phase of its outreach program. Since it was founded in 2006, lighting control has significantly increased market share and was cited in the latest CEA State of the Builder Survey with the largest increase of any home technology
The next installment of the HLCA program will begin on January 1 and run for all of calendar 2009. In addition to raising market awareness for the category to homebuilders, consumers, and the trade, the alliance will continue to expand its educational content online via periodic white papers and case studies as well as a bi-monthly electronic newsletter, SmartLights. The HLCA is also pursuing joint activities with NEMA www.nema.org to leverage important areas of mutual interest.
Already a big inclusive tent, the alliance partnership includes manufacturers of lighting control products, experienced systems integrators, and industry associations. The primary focus has been on residential applications for new construction, renovations, and quality retrofit installations. Core product areas have included dimming system types (hard wired, wireless), control keypads and interfaces as well as lighting control system integration for a single room or the whole house.
For all audiences, the HLCA has positioned itself as a ready resource with clear and accurate information on home lighting control. The dedicated website features various lighting control products and solutions and whitepapers. It also provides easy access to alliance members and showcases interesting applications and installations.
New members of all profiles are welcomed into the HLCA and interested parties should contact Peter Hoagland at 540.349.9648 [email protected]. More information can also be obtained at www.homelightingcontrol.org.
