based on the comparison, determining an indicator state corresponding to the illumination adjustment to the user interface element of the lighting control device having a control point to change the at least one luminaire to the next lighting state in response to input from a user; and
wherein the illumination adjustment is to produce visible output to the user via the user interface element as a visible cue, including a color change, blinking in a pattern, flashing, or light intensity change, to guide the user to select the next lighting state and instruct the user to transition the at least one luminaire away from the current lighting state.

SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR COMMUNICATION WITH A MOBILE DEVICE VIA A POSITIONING SYSTEM INCLUDING RF COMMUNICATION DEVICES AND MODULATED BEACON LIGHT SOURCES

ABL IP HOLDING LLC, Cony...

1. A lighting device, comprising:
a radio frequency transceiver configured to transmit signals to and receive signals from one or more devices;
a light source;
a memory device storing data and programming instructions;
a processor coupled to the transceiver, the light source and the memory, wherein the processor, when executing the programming
instructions, is configured to:

generate a standard compliant advertising packet, the generated advertising packet including a mesh specific sequence and
a lighting device identifier code assigned to the lighting device, the mesh specific sequence indicating that the advertising
packet is associated with a mesh network and the lighting device identifier code indicating the lighting device as a source
of the generated advertising packet; and

output the generated advertising packet for broadcast via the radio frequency transceiver for communication as a signal through
the mesh network based on the lighting device identifier code and mesh specific sequence to other similarly configured devices
proximate to the lighting device.

METHOD FOR CONTROLLING A TUNABLE WHITE FIXTURE USING A SINGLE HANDLE

ABL IP Holding LLC, Atla...

1. A lighting fixture, comprising:
a controller configured for receiving one or more values from a handle and for controlling a driver,
the driver configured for controlling a plurality of LEDs to produce light output having a color temperature and an intensity;
and

the plurality of LEDs;
wherein when the controller receives a value from the handle, the controller:
determines whether the received value is within a first zone of values;
when the received value is within the first zone of values, instructs the driver to control the plurality of LEDs to produce
light with a color temperature corresponding to the received value, and to an intensity based on the color temperature; and

when the received value is outside the first zone of values, instructs the driver to control the plurality of LEDs to produce
light with an intensity corresponding to the received value and to a color temperature corresponding to the received value.

LIGHTING SYSTEM WITH CELLULAR NETWORKING

ABL IP HOLDING LLC, Cony...

1. A lighting device, comprising:a light source configured to produce visible light for general illumination within a space in which the lighting device and a plurality of other lighting devices are located;
at least one transceiver configured to:
connect via wireless low power cellular signals with a small-scale cellular network without having to gain access to a large-scale cellular network, wherein the small-scale network includes similarly configured lighting devices of the plurality of other lighting devices and other devices within the space; and
provide devices within the space with access to a broadband data network; and
a processor coupled to the light source and the at least one transceiver, the processor configured to perform functions, including functions to:
receive, via the at least one transceiver, a data network request requesting access to the broadband data network from a user device within the space, wherein the data network request is received via a short range, low power cellular signal; and
in response to the data network request, establish a broadband connection for the requesting device via the at least one transceiver between the broadband data network and the user device.
