Claim of US Patent No. 10,694,609

1. A wireless lighting control device, comprising:a wireless interface device comprising a wireless transceiver, wherein the wireless interface device is configured to receive lighting control instructions and device configuration instructions wirelessly via the wireless transceiver, wherein the lighting control instructions are used to control operations of a digitally addressable lighting interface (DALI) driver, and wherein the device configuration instructions are used to control operations of the wireless lighting control device;
a control interface circuitry communicably coupled to a controller that is communicably coupled to the wireless interface device, wherein the control interface circuitry is compatible with and configured to be coupled to the DALI driver, wherein the controller and the control interface circuitry are configured to generate DALI instructions for controlling the DALI driver by translating the lighting control instructions to the DALI instructions when the lighting control instructions include non-DALI lighting control instructions, wherein the wireless lighting control device is configurable based on the device configuration instructions to operate in a pass-through mode, wherein, when the wireless lighting control device is configured to operate in the pass-through mode, the controller and the control interface circuitry pass the lighting control instructions through to the DALI driver, and wherein the controller is configured to receive from a wireless user device a status request for a status of the wireless lighting control device and to transmit status information indicating the status of the wireless lighting control device to the wireless user device wirelessly via the wireless transceiver in response to the status request received by the controller; and
a power supply that provides output power to the wireless interface device.
