Universal Douglas announced that its Dialog® Lighting Control Unit (WLC-4150-SC) received the UL 2900-1 Standard for Software Cybersecurity NetworkConnectable Products from the global safety science organization.

The Dialog Lighting Control Unit, a large touchscreen used for changing system settings, is an updated component to Universal Douglas’ Dialog System, a digital, centralized and programmable lighting control system for entire floors, buildings and large multi-building applications. The UL 2900-1 Standard, which is part of UL’s Cybersecurity Assurance Program, covers evaluations and tests of network-connectable devices as it relates to vulnerabilities, malware and software weaknesses.

“UL is the standard-bearer for product safety, and the organization’s expertise as it relates to IoT cybersecurity is world-renowned,” said Anthony Lee, product manager at Universal Douglas. “Universal Douglas is proud to earn the UL 2900-1 Standard for our Dialog Lighting Control Unit. In today’s environment, it is vital that connected systems, like advanced digital lighting control solutions, have gone through comprehensive tests and evaluations to ensure they are safe from the increasing cybersecurity threats the world is facing.”

Additionally, the ioXt Alliance, the global standard for IoT Security, has evaluated and certified the Dialog Lighting Control Unit against its Security Pledge, which is a set of standards that bring security, upgradability and transparency to the market.

Furthermore, Universal Douglas’ Dialog Lighting Control Unit has been recognized by the DesignLights Consortium (DLC), a non-profit organization aimed at improving energy efficiency, lighting quality and the human experience in the built environment, by meeting the standards for its Networked Lighting Control System Technical Requirements Version 5 (NLC5) with these security improvements.
