Claim of US Patent No. 10,433,403

1. A method for reporting brightness-adjusting data from a lighting device that includes a control module and a communication module, comprising:receiving a brightness-adjusting command from a terminal device, the brightness-adjusting command containing brightness-adjusting data having a desired brightness value;
adjusting, through the control module of the lighting device, a brightness value to the desired brightness value according to the brightness-adjusting command;
reporting, through the communication module of the lighting device, the brightness-adjusting data and a serial number corresponding to the brightness-adjusting data to a gateway, wherein: the gateway includes a processor and a communication module, and the serial number increases in accordance with a sequence the brightness-adjusting data are reported to the gateway;
determining, through the processor of the gateway, whether the serial number is greater than a latest serial number stored in the gateway;
when the serial number is greater than the latest serial number:
reporting, through the communication module of the gateway, the brightness-adjusting data to a server;
updating, through the server, a brightness-adjusting result according to the brightness-adjusting data; and
updating, through the processor of the gateway, the latest serial number with the serial number; and
when the serial number is smaller than the latest serial number, discarding, through the processor of the gateway, the brightness-adjusting data so as to maintain previous brightness-adjusting data in the server.
