      I'm responding to David's sunrise/sunset comment.   I either use a photocell input to the control system or sunrise/sunset.   If S/S, then you must also include a parameter for time before and after, ie: I want lights to come on 1/2 hour after sunset.   Also must include location info, lat/long?, or time zone so the S/S can be calculated by the control system.
      If photocell, we would also want the offsets if it's just a photocell switch.  In that case, I might want to turn it on 1/2 hour before it's really dark.  Some of the new photocells will actually give light level readings to the software and the threshold then has to be set as to what level to lights turn on and off (and they probably would be different).
      Just some food for thougth.
      Keep up the good work with lighting controls under BacNet.

      Hi Steve & all,


      I don’t know if we will have time for this agenda item in Louisville but could we have a brief discussion regarding adding sunrise and sunset to the schedule object? Specifically, I would like to know how people are currently using sunrise and sunset in their implementations and how they would expect it to work within a BACnet schedule.


      See you in Louisville.
