Lime Green Lighting, LLC,...

1. A lighting control device comprising:a memory comprising executable instructions;
at least one environmental sensor; and
a microcontroller operatively connected to the memory and the at least one environmental sensor, wherein the microcontroller is configured to execute the executable instructions in order to perform a method comprising:
obtaining environmental data from the at least one environmental sensor;
obtaining input data;
transmitting the environmental data and the input data to an external server;
obtaining, from the external server, a lighting operating schedule based on the environmental data and the input data;
executing the lighting operating schedule,
implementing a calibration routine during an initial setup, wherein implementing the calibration routine during the initial setup comprises:
sequentially brightening and dimming each of a plurality of connected bulbs;
obtaining at least one of additional ambient light intensity and additional ambient light color data from the at least one environmental sensor;
determining an aggregate effect of individually brightening and dimming each of the plurality of connected bulbs based on the additional ambient light intensity and ambient light color data; and
assigning an influence value for each of the plurality of connected bulbs.
