Claim of US Patent No. 10,462,864

1. A Light Emitting Diode (LED) light system comprising:a LED light including:
a bridge rectifier configured to convert an alternating current power source to a rectified output;
control circuitry configured to produce a plurality of shunt signals based upon a voltage of the rectified output; and
a series connected Light Emitting Diode (LED) string coupled directly across first and second outputs of to the bridge rectifier, the series connected LED string having a primary group of LEDs and at least one secondary group of LEDs; and
a switch coupled to the plurality of secondary group of LEDs and controlled by the shunt signal to selectively deactivate the at least one secondary group of LEDs;
a communication module; and
a controller configured to control the LED light based upon interaction with the communication module.
