Claim of US Patent No. 10,285,245

1. At least one processor for use in conjunction with a lighting system including at least one lighting device adjustable with respect to intensity, beam shape, beam direction, color, saturation, hue and/or color temperature of light emitted, the at least one lighting device having a plurality of variable attributes relating to use of the at least one lighting device, wherein the variable attributes relating to use of the at least one lighting device include attributes determinative of properties of light emitted by the at least one lighting device, wherein the variable attributes determinative of properties of light emitted by the at least one lighting device include intensity, beam shape, beam direction, color, saturation, hue, and/or color temperature of light emitted by the at least one lighting device, each attribute having a range of available values, the lighting system being configured such that adjustment of at least one of the plurality of variable attributes relating to use of the at least one lighting device can be carried out by means of transmitting control signals to the respective at least one lighting device, the processor being configured to: receive usage data from the lighting system, the usage data relating to any change in value or values of at least one attribute during use of the at least one lighting device, on basis of the usage data, determine a lighting device settings profile for the at least one lighting device, the lighting device settings profile defining a mode of use of the at least one lighting device that is determined by the processor based on the usage data; and on basis of the lighting device settings profile, generating the control signals for controlling the at least one lighting device based on the defined mode of use determined for the respective at least one lighting device; wherein the processor is configured to receive second data defining a lighting scene and to determine said control signals based on both said second data and said usage data such that said control signals cause light output of the lighting device to replicate said lighting scene based on said usage data.
