Lighting controls are intelligent network-based lighting solutions. They incorporate the communication between various system inputs and outputs related to lighting control. Input can be given manually by humans and/or by sensor signals or parameter settings. Part of the control systems are unusually one or more local or central computing devices.
Lighting control is understood to mean the manual or automatic tuning of a lighting situation inside a building, fixed to a building or in an outdoor area. In its simplest form, the tuning is performed using a light switch or dimmer; in more complex configurations, sensors are used as well as control curves (time lines) and/or control inputs. As a basic requirement, the lighting installation must allow the light sources it incorporates to be varied individually, in groups or all together. As a minimum, this means the ability to alter the brightness of the light sources...
