Lighting Control

Lighting controls provide the functions of switching (on/off) and/or dimming for lighting systems. Lighting control equipment refers to a collection of input/output devices that receive manual or automatic input, and respond accordingly with switching or dimming outputs. Products discussed here include manual controls, occupancy sensors, daylight harvesting controls (photosensors), and other devices for implementing various lighting control strategies.

Lighting Control Protocols

A lighting control protocol is a set of standard rules that define the methods for data representation, signaling, authentication, and error detection to ensure control or enable the connection, communication and data transfer between control endpoints. A wide variety if wired and wireless communications protocols are available for lighting control. These include 0-10VDC (1-10VDC), DALI (digital addressable lighting interface), BACnet, DMX512, RDM, EnOcean, Konnex (KNX), LonWorks, MIDI, Modbus, TCP/IP, ZigBee, Z-Wave, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Thread,, COAP, MQTT, and 6lowPAN.
