Jay Kay Technology Conference – Commscope
These are my notes from the various sessions as part of the 2015 Jay Kay Technology Conference. – Todd
Sensor network that connects over IP, monitor occupancy, air quality, light, temperature, etc. LED fixture connected via standard RJ-45 connector. Switch connected with same type of connector, use Cat 5E or Cat 6 cabling. Cabling is much easier this way. Can use a standard POE switch. Software is server based to control all of the functions, etc.
Quite a bit of conversation around lighting and Jay had a demo setup of some hardware to work with.
One sensor in each room, but multiple fixtures, however the fixtures are tied to the sensor. Wall panel switch is also IP connected.
All the power for the lighting comes from the POE switch. All cabling would go back to the switch rooms. Need to learn a little more about to see how it works.
