Claim of US Patent No. 10,555,405

1. A system to manage lighting themes in a plurality of lighting modules, the system comprising:a lighting controller configured to receive AC power from a primary AC power source and user input indicative of lighting theme information and generate a data encoded power signal to provide power and encoded messages based on the lighting theme information over a two-wire network, the lighting theme information including a request to implement a lighting theme of a plurality of lighting themes; and
a plurality of lighting modules, each lighting module of the plurality of lighting modules configured to receive the data encoded power signal over the two-wire network, each lighting module including at least one lamp, lamp driver circuitry, a microprocessor, and memory storing instructions, that when executed by the processor, configure each lighting module to:
decode at least a portion of the encoded message, the at least a portion including an indication of the requested lighting theme;
retrieve one or more stored settings for the at least one lamp that are associated with the requested lighting theme from the memory; and
execute the retrieved settings.
