Lighting is a discipline that is necessary for every living space and determines the quality of life. In recent years, apart from the mandatory use of lighting, its visuality is also important, and thus the concept of lighting design has emerged.

Lighting design is classified as industrial areas, highways and pedestrian roads, building facades, sports centers, shopping venues, historical areas and objects, parking lots, interior areas, and each has different parameters in accordance with the standards. In lighting technology, the design made outside of the technical details is required to appeal to the eye.

Today, in the lighting projects, it turns the space into an automation rather than just the lighting function, it aims to make the environment safer, more comfortable and more efficient in terms of energy saving. In addition, lighting has been fully integrated into smart building systems and has become an active role in improving living conditions.

This book provides sectoral information for those who consider lighting as a profession to have an idea. Contains; Concepts of light and light, lighting and lighting types, design principles of lighting systems, lighting control techniques and principles, protocols used in lighting automation are explained and sample applications are included.
