SECURE NETWORK COMMISSIONING FOR LIGHTING SYSTEMS

ZUMTOBEL LIGHTING INC., ...

1. A commissioning device for commissioning a network-capable infrastructure device (2) having a first communication unit and a second communication unit that is physically separate from the first communication unit, the second communication unit communicating wirelessly by visual light communication or acoustic communication, the commissioning device including:a commissioning communication unit (6) configured to communicate with a second communication unit (4) of the infrastructure device (2) by at least one of visual light communication and acoustic communication,
a display unit (7) configured to display an icon representing the infrastructure device (2), and
an input unit (8) configured to accept an input operation to select the displayed infrastructure device (2), and
wherein the commissioning device is configured to transmit a command to the selected infrastructure device (2) through the second communication unit upon accepting the input operation, and the command makes the selected infrastructure device (2) emit a visual or acoustical signal that identifies itself, and
wherein the commissioning device is further configured to transmit a key information to the infrastructure device (2) through the second communication unit upon the input unit (8) receiving a second input operation in the form of a commissioning request for the identified infrastructure device through the input unit.

COMMISSIONING DEVICE FOR COMMISSIONING INSTALLED BUILDING TECHNOLOGY DEVICES

ZUMTOBEL LIGHTING INC., ...

1. A commissioning device for commissioning building technology devices installed on and/or in buildings, the commissioning device comprising:a mobile handheld communication terminal;
at least one optical sensor on the mobile handheld communication terminal configured to obtain spatial images containing spatial information of three dimensions and to receive optical communication signals emitted from a plurality of building technology devices, at least one said building technology device comprising an operating device for a luminaire, and the at least one optical sensor comprising a 3D camera having a first optical lens and a second optical lens with a separate image sensor element for each lens, wherein the second optical lens observes the same area as the first optical lens from a different angle;
a positioning sensor; and
at least one processing unit configured to process received optical communication signals, to process the spatial images and to evaluate the output from the positioning sensor to determine an absolute position and an orientation of the commissioning device,
wherein the at least one processing unit is configured to compute a spatial position of the building technology device by processing the produced spatial images and by evaluating the spatial information and the determined position and orientation of the commissioning device, wherein the at least one processing unit is configured to process the optical communication signals received from the building technology device in order to obtain information identifying the building technology device, and wherein the at least one processing unit is configured to associate the computed spatial position of the building technology device with the processed optical communication signals in order to associate a physical position of the installed business technology device with a logical network and/or lighting bus address; and
further wherein the at least one processing unit further associates the associated information with a location in a digital building plan, stored in a storage unit functionally connected to the at least one processing unit.
