A lighting control system is an intelligent network based lighting control solution that incorporates communication between various system inputs and outputs related to lighting control with the use of one or more central computing devices. Lighting control systems are widely used on both indoor and outdoor lighting of commercial, industrial, and residential spaces. This is also referred to as Smart Lighting.
Ability to control individual lights or groups of lights from a single user interface device.
Reduced energy consumption.
A control system manages, commands, directs, or regulates the behaviour of other devices or systems using control loops.
Open Loop Control System
A control system in which the control action is totally independent of output of the system.
It is also called Manual control system.
Closed Loop Control System
A Control system in which the output has an effect on the input quantity in such a manner that the input quantity will adjust itself based on the output generated is called closed loop control system. It is also called automatic control system.
The mechanism for exchange of information between different computer networks and network segments is called switching.
