Claim of US Patent No. 9,307,620

1. A lighting system comprising:
a sensor configured to detect at least one parameter;
a lighting controller comprising a hard-wired communications link and configured to accept a value of the at least one parameter
from said sensor in the form of data encoded on conductors of said hard-wired communication link according to predetermined
properties of said hard-wired communication link, wherein said sensor is located remotely from said lighting controller; and

a data relay electrically connected to said hard-wired communication link, said data relay comprising a receiver configured
to receive an RF signal representing a value of said at least one parameter detected by said sensor, and circuitry configured
to extract said value from said received RF signal and encode said value on said conductors by emulating said predetermined
properties.
