Claim of US Patent No. 10,143,014

1. A control device that performs wireless communication and is connected to another control device via a wired network comprising:a memory; and
a processor coupled to the memory and the processor configured to:
acquire information relating to a channel and a communication timing used for wireless communication via the wired network from another control device that is made to act as a slave;
generate a setting of a channel and a communication timing in which no interference occurs between wireless communication with a first opposing control device performed by the control device and wireless communication with a second opposing control device performed by the another control device, based on information relating to a channel and a communication timing used for wireless communication of the control device and the acquired information relating to the channel and the communication timing used for wireless communication of the another control device; and
report the generated setting of the channel and the timing to the another control device that is made to act as the slave via the wired network for minimizing interference in communication between the control devices and corresponding opposing control devices,wherein:the memory holds information on a first relationship between the control device and the first opposing control device managed by the control device and a second relationship between the another control device and the second opposing control device managed by the another control device,
the processor is further configured to:
acquire a first electrical power information of a first load connected to the first opposing control device from the first opposing control device according to the first relationship,
acquire a second electrical power information of a second load connected to the second opposing control device from the another control device according to the second relationship when the second electrical power information is requested from an information processing device connected to the control device via the wired network, and
send the first electrical power information and the second electrical power information to the information processing device for displaying the respective electrical power information to a user for corrective action by the user.
