1. A method of operating a mobile device to control a light-emitting diode (LED)-based lamp, comprising:
providing a user interface to be displayed to a user, wherein the user interface includes:
a first control for selecting a lamp,
a second control for capturing with a sensor a target light having a target spectrum, and
a third control for initiating generation by the lamp a light having a light spectrum that substantially matches the target

receiving a lamp command through the user interface to select a preferred lamp;
receiving a capture command through the user interface to capture the target light at the sensor;
receiving a reproduction command through the user interface to generate the target spectrum with the preferred lamp; and
transmitting the received commands from the mobile device to an external controller,
wherein the external controller is configured to communicate with the preferred lamp to determine an operating point of the
preferred lamp that generates light having a light spectrum substantially matching the target spectrum.
