Claim of US Patent No. 9,521,725

29. A lighting system comprising:
a plurality of LED lights;
a plurality of modules, one or more of said LED lights of the plurality of LED lights associated with each module of the plurality
of modules;

a two-wire communication network configured to address each of said plurality of modules and provide power to each of said
plurality of modules;

a user interface configured to acquire user inputs responsive to user intentions to modify a behavior of one or more of said
plurality of LED lights, the user inputs comprising a lighting zone number associated with a lighting zone, and a chronological
lighting schedule that includes at least a scheduled time and an intensity for at least one module of the plurality of modules;

a processor operatively coupled to the user interface and configured to output lighting zone data, and command and address
data responsive to said acquired user inputs;

a fixture programming port operatively coupled to the processor and uncoupled from the two-wire communication network, the
fixture programming port configured to provide said lighting zone data to the at least one module modify the lighting zone
of the at least one module in accordance with said user intentions when the at least one module is in communication with the
fixture programming port;

a power supply including a rectifier circuit and a bridge circuit, said power supply configured to modify an input voltage
of a power source to produce a data encoded power signal responsive to a polarity of said input voltage and responsive to
said command and address data, said power supply outputting said data encoded power signal at the scheduled time over said
two-wire communication network to modify said behavior of said one or more of said LED lights of the at least one module in
accordance with said user intentions when the at least one module is in communication with the two-wire network, said data
encoded power signal shaped substantially similar to a sinusoidal waveform when said data encoded power signal represents
a data bit; and

a chassis and an integral user interface panel that includes the user interface, the processor, and the fixture programming
port, the chassis providing a mechanical attachment for the power supply and the integral user interface panel.
