Claim of US Patent No. 10,462,881

1. A lighting system, comprising:a gateway device having a physically integrated user input interface;
a first lighting device configured to wirelessly communicate with the gateway device;
a second lighting device configured to wirelessly communicate with the gateway device; and
lighting control devices configured to wirelessly communicate with the gateway device, wherein the gateway device is configured to initiate wireless communications with multiple lighting devices including the first lighting device, the second lighting device, and the lighting control devices by transmitting a network join beacon signal to the multiple lighting devices in response to a user input physically provided to the gateway device via the physically integrated user input interface, wherein the multiple lighting devices are configured to search for the network join beacon signal for a timeout period upon being powered up, wherein the first lighting device provides a visual indication to indicate that a wireless communication is established between the first lighting device and the gateway device, wherein the gateway device is configured to combine, upon the wireless communications being established between the gateway device and the multiple lighting devices, lighting control information received by the gateway device from two or more lighting control devices of the lighting control devices to generate combined lighting control information that is transmitted to control the first lighting device and the second lighting device.
