      > Hello Steve Carlson & Steve Terry,
      >
      > I was putting together an agenda today for the BACnet
      > Lighting Applications
      > working group meeting at the upcoming ASHRAE
      > <http://www.ashrae.org/> annual
      > meeting, and ran across the Advanced Control Network while researching
      > theatrical lighting properties on the ESTA DMX Usage Data website.
      >
      > One of the areas where BACnet <http://www.bacnet.org/> is improving
      > interoperability is lighting applications, and a working group was formed
      in
      > January, 2001, to address this. One of the things we are currently
      working
      > on is standardization of lighting-related data for both theatrical and
      > architectural lighting. Lithonia Lighting has a lighting controller
      (albeit
      > architectural in nature) that uses BACnet as its native network protocol -
      > but we had to extend the BACnet protocol to achieve the desired
      > functionality.
      >
      > Would the ESTA Control Protocols Working Group consider participating or
      > collaborating with the BACnet Lighting Applications Working Group to help
      > modify the BACnet protocol to be 'lighting friendly'? Specifically, we
      are
      > putting together the properties for a standard Lighting Object.
      >
      > The BACnet Lighting Applications working group is currently using a
      > list-server for discussions, and anyone can be a member of the working
      > group. Sending an e-mail to BACnetLighting-subscribe@yahoogroups.com will
      > subscribe you to the list. The next meeting is being held during the

      > annual meeting. It is on Saturday, 23 June 2001, from 1pm to 5pm at the
