SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR AUTOMATICALLY CREATING AND OPERATING A FUNCTIONAL ASSOCIATION OF LIGHTS

JDRF ELECTROMAG ENGINEERI...

1. A control device for associating automation objects in groups comprising:a sensor for detecting current operating data;
a memory for recording the sensor data, comprising current and historical operating data;
a communications signal receiver that receives communications signals from one or more neighbouring control devices comprising current and historical operating data;
a communications signal transmitter that transmits communications signals to the one or more neighbouring control devices comprising current and historical operating data;
a control unit that compares the received one or more operating data with the recorded operating data and for each neighbouring control device determines the similarity of the operating data;
an automation object output based on the current operating data and the control unit;
wherein the control unit determines whether operation of the automation object output is coordinated with the current operating data of the neighbouring one or more control devices for which there is similarity.

SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR AUTOMATICALLY CREATING AND OPERATING A FUNCTIONAL ASSOCIATION OF LIGHTS

JDRF Electromag Engineeri...

1. A control device for associating with one or more neighbouring control devices based on occupancy sensors, the control device comprises:a. a communications transceiver for sending and receiving communication signals with the one or more neighbouring control devices, that receives the signals when the one or more neighbouring control devices detects an occupancy event;
b. an occupancy detector that detects an occupancy event upon the presence or absence of people in the vicinity of the control device;
c. a processor for calculating the time difference between the detection of an occupancy event detected by the occupancy detector and the receipt of a signal when the one or more neighbouring control devices detects an occupancy event; and determining the degree of similarity between each of the one or more neighbouring control devices and the control devices and the membership of the control device in a group of control devices;
d. a luminaire that operates on the basis of the occupancy detector and on the basis of the signals received from the one or more neighbouring devices that are members of the group of control devices.
