Claim of US Patent No. 10,143,056

1. A dimming control node comprising:a photocontrol interface comprising:
a sensor power terminal that is electrically couplable to a motion sensor and configured for providing power to the motion sensor, and
a sensor input terminal that is communicatively couplable to the motion sensor and configured for receiving sensor data via a wired connection to the motion sensor; and
a processing device communicatively coupled to the sensor input terminal, wherein the processing device is configured for:
determining a sensor output state of the motion sensor from the sensor data received via the wired connection,
selecting a dim-level configuration corresponding to the sensor output state of the motion sensor, and
causing the dimming control node to set a luminaire ballast or luminaire driver to the selected dim-level configuration.
