Lighting or illumination is the deliberate use of light to achieve a practical or aesthetic effect. Lighting includes the use of both artificial light sources like lamps and light fixtures, as well as natural illumination by capturing daylight. Daylighting (using windows, skylights, or light shelves) is sometimes used as the main source of light during daytime in buildings. This can save energy in place of using artificial lighting, which represents a major component of energy consumption in buildings. Proper lighting can enhance task performance, improve the appearance of an area, or have positive psychological effects on occupants.

Hubbell Control Systems
The PowerHUBB platform is a combination of software and controls, luminaires, and infrastructure. It uses intelligent sensors, intuitive user interfaces, and scalable PoE technology to bring it all together. A PoE node acts as an intelligent lighting hub by receiving power and data from the network switch. This

If you’ve ever looked closely at a seashell, you know the wonder encapsulated within the graceful spiral of its pearlescent form—what Frank Lloyd Wright called “nature’s most perfect architecture.” The shape is at once sculptural and mathematically precise.

Many sea creatures take a modular approach to expansion. Because their calcified exoskeletons
