The technical field to which the invention relates

The invention pertains to a lighting programs or patterns when using a lighting system that takes into account the energy consumption.

The level of technology

Modern lighting systems allow users to set various patterns of illumination, such as selecting a preferred color lighting or dynamic lighting. Picture lighting can be created by professional developers lighting or directly by users. Picture lighting contains presets lamps to represent the desired pattern of illumination. Users can control the lighting system by selecting a desired pattern of illumination to be provided by the user interface. Some pictures of the lighting can be combined in a lighting program in the playlist. Users can then choose a specific program of lighting that is appropriate to their individual wishes for coverage.

With increasing opportunities in the use of new control systems for lighting systems the amount of available presets increases. Thus, it becomes increasingly difficult to remember what buttons do custom �of nterface lighting system. Consequently, there is a need for an advanced user support for use of the lighting system, in particular, if users want to create a particular view of the lighting or use lighting system.

The light control system using the built-in function energy management is known from the document WO 2009/066234 A2.

Disclosure of invention

The purpose of the invention is to provide a system and method an improved camera lighting or programs using the lighting system.

The objective is achieved by the subject matter of the independent claims. Additional implementation options are specified in the dependent claims.

The basic idea of the invention consists in the improved camera lighting using lighting systems, given the power consumption. Despite the fact that most lighting provides the ability to customize paintings lighting, energy aspects are not usually considered. When using the invention, power consumption can be done automatically, lighting when the picture is selected for implementation by the user.

the approximate calculation of power consumption based on the modeling for the selected picture lighting. In particular, for complex lighting systems modeling the operation mode of the lighting system can be a precise method for approximate calculation of power consumption.

In addition, the system may contain:

- third database containing the cost of energy, in this case,

- module calculations performed with the additional ability to calculate the total energy cost for lighting pattern that needs to be created, based on the calculated power consumption and cost of energy extracted from the third database. Consequently, the cost of energy can also be taken into account that could make it more convenient choice when creating by the user picture lighting.

Since the system contains a module switch lighting paintings, executed with the ability to automatically select one or b�Leah lighting paintings from the collection of paintings of lighting depending on current energy consumption by computing the energy consumption for each picture lighting and choice of each painting lighting with energy consumption below or equal to the calculated power consumption, the user can set the calculated value of power consumption, and the system will automatically try to match the demands of this current energy consumption by selecting a suitable pattern of illumination.

In addition, the switch module paintings lighting can be accomplished with the additional option to automatically create a lighting program from automatically selected paintings lighting. It also allows the user to set the calculated value of power consumption for lighting programs, such as programs for one month, and to meet the requirements of current energy consumption or energy cost.

An additional variant embodiment of the invention relates to a method for determining the energy consumption of the lighting system, containing:

- extracting data about the sources of light needed to create a picture of lighting, the first database containing data about the light sources of the lighting system,

For example, the method may be implemented as an algorithm for a computer program that can be executed by the Central controller of the lighting.

Power consumption can be calculated from the extracted data about the light sources and the extracted preset lighting.

Brief description of the drawings

Fig.1 is a variant of the implementation of the lighting system in accordance with the invention, and

Fig.2 is a variant of the method of determining the energy consumption of the lighting system.

The implementation of the invention

In the future, similar in function or identical elements have the same reference numbers. The terms "light", "lighting unit" and "light source" in the future refer to the same concept.

Fig.1 depicts a system 10 lighting with multiple light sources 14. The operation of the light sources 14 can be controlled, such as the color of lighting, dimming level, saturation. The light sources 14 can contain several colored LED (LEDs) to form a colored lighting. To control the light sources 14 is provided with a Central controller 26 lighting, which can be implemented via a standard personal computer (PC), which is configured by a program that implements the operation mode control light sources or lighting controller that contains a processor or microcontroller, which is also configured by software to implement the functionality (operation mode) Ctrl�ment for light sources. The Central controller 26 can control one or several or all light sources by transmitting control commands to the light sources or lighting controller (not shown), switching between the light sources 14 and the Central controller 26 lighting as an additional control device.

The Central controller 26 lighting is also configured to create paintings lighting using light sources 14. Picture lighting contains pre-settings for some or all of the light sources 14. Presets can contain color lighting and dimming level of the light sources 14 to create the desired pattern of illumination. Picture lighting can be created by the user through the user interface (UI) or 24 connected to the Central controller of the lighting. For example, the user interface 24 may be formed through a program that is executed by a mobile device, such as PDA (PDA), smartphone, laptop. The mobile device may be connected to a Central lighting controller via the data connection 28, such as a LAN (local area network) or WLAN (wireless local area network). An example of a mobile device is a smartphone that connects�n WLAN and executes a software component to gain access to the lighting system, creating UI for 24 of the lighting system 10.

Since it is often the creation of lighting to be provided with a complex lighting system, is a tedious task, picture lighting can also be taken, for example, from professional developers lighting or suppliers of lighting systems. Since pictures of the lights are the data sets, for example, they can be loaded by the user via the data connection 28 from the server (not shown), such as servers on the Internet, to the Central controller 26 lighting.

Preset lighting paintings (as created by the user or extracted) can be stored in the database 16 preset data controller of the lighting system. Presets suited for cases with specific light sources 14 of the lighting system 10. It is important that when a user uploads a picture to the lighting, because the downloaded pattern of illumination is usually not suited for a particular lighting system, but contains only an abstract description of the art lighting, which can then be automatically sent to a specific lighting system 10. The applicant proposes systems and methods of such automatic transmission description abstract atmospheric lighting or picture on the management mechanism of �La case with the lighting system, and they are the subject invention further patent applications of the Applicant.

The Central controller 26 contains additional lighting base 12 for the data about the light sources, which contains information about the light sources 14. In particular, the contained data contain information about the power consumption of each source of light 14, and may contain such additional information as the mode of each source of light 14.

Third base 20 data from the Central controller 26 contains the actual lighting energy cost, which can also be downloaded from the server, such as servers on the Internet, which performs the role of master node database with the cost of energy.

It should be noted that all of the base 12, 16 and 20 data should not be part of the Central controller 26 lighting, but, for example, can also be a separate server, such as servers on the Internet, home servers or simple PC acting as a server for the Central controller 26 lighting. For example, the user can perform database 16 and 20 of the data in her/his PC, which can be connected to the Internet, and from time to time to upload new pictures lighting or update the cost of energy by running the program on her/his PC to manage databases 16 and 20 of the data. This PC can be with�was merged with LAN or WLAN user in her/his house, which also is connected to the Central controller 26 lighting, to gain access to the bases 16 and 20 of the data on the PC.

As mentioned above, the Central controller 26 can include a user interface (UI) 24. Through 24 UI the user can control, for example, a picture light with the use of the lighting system 10. If the user wishes to create a specific lighting pattern, she/he may, for example, choose one of the pictures of the light stored in the database 16 data paintings lighting. After selecting the picture to the lighting module 18 calculate the Central controller 26 processes the selected lighting lighting pattern according to the following algorithm, a block diagram is shown in Fig.2.

The calculation module 18 retrieves data about the sources of light needed to create the selected pattern of light from the first base 12 data (step S10). Then the module 18 retrieves preset lighting for a selected pattern of light from the base 16 preset data (step S12) and remove the actual energy cost of 20 data base energy cost (step S14).

After removing all these data, the calculation module 18 starts processing model operation mode of the lighting system (step S16) based on the extracted preset lighting and calculates prima�Noe consumption and energy cost for a selected pattern of light on the basis of modeling. Model operation mode is processed on the basis of the presets contained in the film lighting, and can take into account static and dynamic lighting. Hence, the model may be time-dependent.

Then the result of the approximate calculation of power consumption is displayed on the UI 24 (step S18) before the user will be able to choose lighting pattern to create it. If the pattern of light generated by the lighting system 10, the calculation module 18 can still run in the background and update the power consumption and cost of energy displayed by the UI 24.

The Central controller 26 lighting also is adapted to produce light of the lighting system 10. Lighting program for the purpose of this invention is the playlist paintings lighting.

For example, the program lights for office may include the following information:

TimePicture lighting
12PM-8AMAll off
8AM-12PMBusiness lighting
12AM-7PMSummer lighting
7PM-8PMLighting for cleaning
8PM-12PMAll off

Another example is the following program lighting for the home:

TimePicture lighting
12PM-6AMAll off
6AM-8AMLighting for Wake
8AM-12AMMorning lighting
12AM-6PMDaylight
6PM-8PMEvening light
8PM-11PMDark evening light
11PM-12PMAll off

The user can also choose a lighting program through the user interface 24 by means of a Central controller 26 lighting. Then the calculation unit 18 may calculate the power consumption for the selected lighting program by computing the energy consumption for each picture lighting contained in the program, explains how you�E. In addition, the calculation unit 18 may calculate the cost of energy by taking into account the length of time each picture lighting contained in the selected program.

In addition, the user sets the calculated value of power consumption, the requirements of which must match the lighting created by the use of the lighting system 10. The estimated power consumption can mean consumption or estimated cost of energy. Using UI 24, the user selects from the Central controller 26 lighting menu to create lighting with the calculated power consumption and introduces this calculated value of power consumption, for example, in the context of maximum energy cost or energy consumption of the lighting system. For example, the user can enter the total cost of lighting by day, week or month. In addition, the user can enter whether the pattern of illumination or lighting program to be created by the lighting system 10. Entered the estimated consumption serves as a starting point for creating lighting, as described in further.

The calculation module 18 communicates with the module 22 switch picture light to enter the current energy consumption together with the entered selection of pictures of a lighting program. Then the module 22 switch picture light waveguide�automatically selects one or more lighting paintings from the series of paintings lighting, stored in the lighting system 10 or on a server accessible via the data connection. If the user selects the selection of pictures lighting, the module 22 selects only picture lighting that are appropriate to meet the requirements imposed current energy consumption by computing the energy consumption for each picture lighting, and selection of each painting lighting with energy consumption less than or equal to the calculated power consumption. If the user selects the choice of lighting programs, the module 22 selects either the stored lighting program that meets the requirements of current energy consumption by computing the energy consumption of lighting programs by means of the calculation unit 18 and described above, or the module 22 automatically selects a number of paintings and lighting creates lighting program selected paintings from lighting, which can be achieved in compliance with the requirements of current energy consumption. For example, if the user entered as the estimated power consumption maximum value on the date and lighting program, the module 22 may automatically select the appropriate picture to the lighting and create a lighting program, in which it automatically determines how long certain picture of�illumination is active during the day to meet the requirements of the estimated value of energy.

For example, if the user entered as the estimated energy costs 470 EUR per month for office, the module 22 paintings switch lighting can automatically create the next playlist paintings lighting as lighting program on a day to achieve the estimated energy cost:

TimePicture lightingThe value of the Euro in a month
12PM-8AMAll off5
8AM-1230PMBusiness lighting180
1230PM-730PMSummer lighting240
730PM-8PMLighting for cleaning40
8PM-12PMAll off5

Even if all the lights off in intervals 12PM-8AM and 8PM-12PM, then the energy consumed, for example, by the Central controller 26 lighting so that the costs were not equal 0. Therefore, the lighting system 10 also offers the user to create�rtina lighting or program by incorporating energy considerations.

Thus, the invention can improve the creation of lighting with lighting systems. The invention may be applied to the entire lighting system adapted to create a picture of illumination.

At least some of the functional features (modes) of the invention can be performed by hardware or software. In the case of option implementation in software, one or more conventional microprocessors or microcontrollers may be used to process one or more algorithms that implement the invention.
