Human behavior is one of the major factors affecting the energy use of lighting in the built environment. Since factors such as the perception of the environment or objects may guide human behavior, the perception of lighting related objects may have an impact on the change of behavior towards energy saving. This study aimed to develop a questionnaire for measuring human perception of different design features of lighting control devices. The assessments were conducted in order to investigate if participants’ responses (n = 304) to the devices corresponded to a set of 7 criteria for designing lighting control devices in public spaces. A 30-item questionnaire concerning the 7 criteria was used. Through a factor analysis, the criteria were checked, resulting in a revised 16–item questionnaire in relation to the 6 criteria i.e. Readable and Intuitive, Safety, Encourage users’ environmental concern, Users acceptance and satisfaction, Easy to see and Hygienic. Reliability of the criteria varied from ±.70 to ±.89 except ±.47 for the factor hygienic. The questionnaire will be used for a pilot study of users’ perception of lighting control devices in a laboratory study where participants will use the different devices to control artificial light.
