We're delighted to let you know that we recently updated the PIER technical brief titled "Sweet SPOT™ for Daylighting" (TB-18). The latest release of the Sensor Placement and Optimization Tool (SPOT™) software, version 4.0—which won the Most Innovative Product of the Year award at the 2008 LightFair International Trade Show and Conference—adds a number of capabilities, including a database of information about photosensor performance. In addition, the latest software version produces commissioning reports for each photosensor system in use for field implementation and enables users to feed the SPOT™ output into a whole-building energy analysis.
