Designing and controlling lighting systems become more and more complex. Focusing on the control problem a rule-based control system is proposed. The system allows to control such lighting systems with high level control logic constituting so-called profiles. The profiles express lighting system behavior under certain conditions defined with rules. The light point and sensor distribution in the grid are given as graph structures. Control command sequences are inferred based on current system state, profiles, light points topology and sensor input. System’s architecture and a case study are also presented.
