Brightening the Future with Efficiency and Control

Executive Summary Rapid advancements in lighting technology bring forth an era of higher efficiency and smart control systems that are revolutionizing the way facilities manage their lighting needs. Through the success story of the Friendship Celebration Lutheran Church in Meridian, Idaho, this whitepaper illustrates the exceptional benefits of transitioning to LiteLogic LED solutions – highlighting significant energy savings, enhanced lighting quality, and customizable control options that align with modern demands for sustainability and functionality.


Lighting plays a crucial role in setting the ambiance of a space, impacting functionality, productivity, and even the wellbeing of occupants. Traditional lighting solutions, like the fluorescent fixtures, have dominated the market for years but with growing energy costs and ecological concerns, institutions are now seeking smarter, more sustainable options. LiteLogic emerges as a game- changer in this realm, leveraging LED technology and Bluetooth controls to deliver superior illumination and energy efficiency. LiteLogic stands as a premium range of lighting products by the Barron Lighting Group, designed with cutting-edge features and capabilities to optimize performance while minimizing energy consumption. The solution comprises compact, long- lasting fixtures that deliver exceptional light output with minimal glare. It also incorporates Bluetooth controls for customizable scheduling and dimming options, enabling facilities to efficiently manage their lighting needs and further reduce energy costs.

The Challenge: Outdated Lighting Systems

The Friendship Celebration Lutheran Church, constructed in the early 2000s, faced the challenge many organizations encounter: aging lighting systems that are costly to maintain, fall short in illumination quality, and consume excessive energy. Annual lift rentals for lamp replacements and the struggle with color matching as lamps aged or were replaced with varying LED tube retrofits also outlined the demand for a modern lighting solution. Moreover, the ability to customize lighting for different events and gatherings was an essential requirement. The church needed a reliable, sustainable lighting system with advanced controls to address these issues.

“The dimming capability, the uniformity, the color and the warmth of the light is so much better than what we had. I like the controllability to turn down or change the tone of the lights.”

— Dave R, IT Manager Friendship Celebration Lutheran Church
