The technical field to which the invention relates

The present invention is mainly aimed at managed network and related communications equipment. More specifically, the present invention is directed to systems and devices for obtaining, modifying, and sharing personal preferences applicable to controllable lighting networks.

Summary of the invention

Digital lighting technologies, i.e. illumination based on semiconductor light sources, such as light emitting diodes (LED), currently offer a feasible alternative to traditional fluorescent lamps, discharge lamps high intensity discharge (HID) and incandescent lamps. Recent advances in led technology due to its many functional advantages, such as high energy conversion and optical efficiency, durability and low cost of operation, which led to the development of effective and reliable broadband light sources make possible a variety of lighting effects. For example, the fixtures embodying these sources of light may include one or more LEDs capable of producing different colors, e.g. red, green and blue, and a processor to control the output power� LEDs to generate a variety of colors and lighting effects color changing, as discussed in U.S. patents №№6016038 and 6211626.

Controllable lighting networks and systems include lighting control system, which allow you to use digital lighting technology for lighting control in one or more places. Controllable lighting networks and systems can control the lights in the space based on the personal preferences for coverage of individuals detected within or otherwise associated with space. Many controllable lighting networks and systems use sensory systems to receive information on areas under their influence. Such information may include identifiers of individuals found in these places, as well as personal preferences for lighting associated with such individuals. Therefore, controlled lighting systems, currently in use, allow users to control lighting through the application of personal preferences. Recent scientific studies show that personal lighting control can result in significant improvement in meeting the needs of employees, motivation and well-being. This causal relationship between personal control and performance confirms the influence of high-quality lighting, g�e quality is measured based on the satisfaction of personal preferences, how efficiently people work in the workplace.

From the point of view of the user, many of the traditional systems and technologies for the implementation of lighting control often offer little more than reducing the brightness of light sources in accordance with the previously entered preferences. For example, in many known systems, a user preference on coverage for a particular ambient space can be programmed by the administrator of the building. The system can then control the illumination of the surrounding space for the implementation of the preferred user location lighting. Thus, the office worker who prefers to have his or her work place was brightly lit, or alternative dimly lit, can be programmed accordingly by the administrator. Similarly, administrators can schedule time periods "on" and "off" in accordance with the schedule of the user to save energy.

Other known systems contain fluorescent luminaires with direct/indirect lighting with integrated occupancy sensors and daylight that communicate with the Central controller via RS-485 a fixed wired network. The Central controller then communicates via lo�hoc network (LAN) with desktop computers. This system allows office workers to reduce the brightness of the target (direct) and ambient (indirect) lighting through their workstations and to enable and disable the task and ambient lighting using, to control personal lighting software installed on their computers. The system also allows office managers to apply management for individual fixtures, groups, areas, and full lighting network; turn on and off sensors fluorescent lighting for lamps; turn on and off occupancy sensors lamps; set the time delay of the occupancy sensor; an independent determination of the control lamps of the task and ambient lighting; to enable and disable the load reduction; create detailed reports on energy consumption; and to plan daily, weekly, monthly and annual events. In this sense, this system and similar traditional products can be considered as extensions to a building management system which also controls the subsystems of heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC), and security subsystems.

There have also been disclosed a lighting system in which the user can enter his or her preferences on coverage for a specific location, and a Central controller may�perform a lighting scenario for transmission of instructions to the LEDs or other light sources and implement personal preferences. In one traditional approach lighting system can receive input signals indicating the presence of a person, the duration of human presence or identifying the presence of a particular person or people present at the location, through, for example, magnetic read names, identification cards, or evaluation of biometric data. Different lighting scenarios can then be carried out depending on whether the person is, as long there is a man and what man is there. These systems can also choose different lighting scenarios depending on the number of people in the room or the direction in which the people turned. For example, lighting devices and other energy sources can be switched on or off depending on information in a personal electronic calendar.

Some traditional lighting systems can take the information on the presence of human rights or preferences of the person from the device, wearable by a user. For example, in some disclosed systems, the card reader can detect the presence of cards, wearable by a user, which can then cause the system to turn on the light, when, for example, the user enters the room, switching off the lights when the user is out� out of the room. In other disclosed lighting systems the user has his or her preferences on a mobile device or card. As the user moves, the data can be transmitted to the devices and systems capable of applying the parameters under their control with the saved preferences (for example, to switch the light sources or change their color), or through automatic detection cards or other systems used by putting the card in the card reader.

While advances in digital lighting technologies have given rise precisely controlled lighting, a well-known system for implementing user preferences require re-configuration of the illumination system with a network structure or a system with a brick and mortar structure. While users may be willing to manually enter a small number of preferences in a lighting system, there are also many variable parameters that can be adjusted now existing solid-state lighting and electronic devices that the illumination system can not fully use.

Although the field of mobile devices and digital or solid-state lighting devices are rapidly evolving, there is a disadvantage in systems that combine the use of justices�aemula solid-state lighting and personal mobile devices to further improve the acquisition of personal preferences on lighting and light regulation on the basis of personal preferences for all many lighting networks. For example, in systems implementing user preferences, user preferences (1) as a rule, should be initially entered for each variable that can be adjusted, and user preferences (2) are specific for a particular location and are not performed in a different location or in other networks.

Summary of the invention

The communication module 110 may also include local area network (LAN) or wireless local area network (WLAN). For example, the communication module 110 may include wireless computer connection technology between the processor 120 and the personal device 40.

The term "network" as used herein refers to any connection between two or more devices (including lighting controllers or processors) that facilitate the transport of information (e.g., device management, data storage, data exchange, and so on) between any two or more devices and/or among multiple devices connected to the network. As should be readily understood, various implementation networks, �thomasia to connect multiple devices may include any of a variety of network topologies and employ any of a variety of communication protocols. Additionally, in various networks in accordance with the present disclosure, any one connection between two devices may represent a dedicated connection between two systems or alternative not a dedicated connection. In addition to the transfer of information intended for the two devices, this is not a dedicated connection can transmit information, not necessarily intended for either of the two devices (for example, the connection of open networks). Furthermore, it should be readily understood that various networks of devices as discussed herein may apply one or more wireless, wire/cable and/or fiber-optic lines to facilitate the transport of information through the network.

When executed by the processor module 120 information 210 also detects the signal indicating any adjustments requested by the user through the user interface. The term "user interface", as used here, refers to the interface between a human user or operator and one or more devices that enable the connection between the user and the device (s).

In addition, the processor in accordance with the invention may analyze the user information in the database 50 preference data from a plurality of interactive systems to identify the correlation between the adjustments requested by the user, and the contexts in which it is requested.

In some embodiments, the memory device 100 further includes an Executive module 220. Executive module 220 instructs the processor 120 to control the individually controllable luminaires 150 or other devices in a controllable lighting network 140 based on the rules of preference. Executive module 220 may also receive signals identify the requested adjustments and implement adjustment of individually controlled lamps 150. The CPU 120 carries out the EGR�the language based on the personal preferences of the user and based on the priority of the user or personal user preferences. In some embodiments, controllable lighting network 140 may comprise, for example, dedicated hardware lines. In some other embodiments, the lamps 150 include one or more addressable luminaires, which connect via the lighting network, which includes other types of communication lines, such as Ethernet or wireless network connection. In other embodiments of the present invention, actuator module 220 can be accommodated in the device local memory 130.

The processor 120 may be a lighting controller, which is used here, in General, to describe the various devices relating to the work of one or more fixtures. The controller includes a lighting controller, can be done in many ways (e.g., such as with dedicated hardware) to perform various functions discussed here. The controller may also be implemented as a combination of dedicated hardware to perform some functions and a processor (e.g., one or more programmed microprocessors and associated circuits) to perform other functions. Examples of controller components that may be used in various embodiments of the present disclosure, comprise, but not limited to, conventional microprocessors and specialized integrated circuits (ASIC) and field programmable gate array (FPGA).

In accordance with some embodiments of implementing the present invention, the processor 120 may receive multiple user IDs associated with users within the interactive system 10. Executive module 220 temporarily assigns user IDs on the basis of data received from personal devices. For example, after the communication module 110 receives a signal that includes a user ID associated with the personal device 40, the communication module 110 may then make another signal that includes a user ID associated with the second personal device. In such circumstances, Executive module 220 may associate a higher priority ID of the user from the first personal device and a lower priority with the user ID from the second personal device. Accordingly, the communication module 110 can transmit the first signal to the processor 120. The first signal determines the priority of the user ID associated with the first personal device. In addition, the communication module 110 may transmit a second signal to the processor 120. W�Roy signal determines the priority of the user ID, associated with the second personal device. In such embodiments, the processor 120 may receive first and second signals at about the same time.

When the processor 120 receives both signals with the user ID, the processor 120 may continue the adjustment of the lamps 150 based on the first signal. In this case, control is performed not only based on the personal preferences of the user of the first personal device, but also on the basis of its priority. If the user of the first personal device is associated with a higher priority, the first signal may be scheduled for consideration by the next. Like the processor 120 may continue the adjustment of the lamps 150 based on the second signal. Again, the adjustment is made not only based on the personal preferences of the user of the second personal device, but also on the basis of its priority. If the user of the second personal device is associated with a lower priority, the second signal may not be scheduled for consideration by the next. Similarly, the processor 120 may opt for three or more users associated with respective personal devices.

Alternatively, the user IDs may be temporarily assigned or locatio�to legalise in accordance with the priority based on additional or alternative criteria. For example, the user IDs from specific personal devices may be assigned a higher or lower priority. This way the user IDs from personal devices in specific locations may be assigned a higher or lower priority. For example, the user identifiers from personal devices, recognized as associated with regular users, can be assigned higher priorities than user identifiers from personal devices is not recognized. And the user IDs from personal devices, which are recognised as being in priority areas, can be assigned higher priorities than user IDs from other areas in the same institution.

Many individually controllable lights 150 managed by the processor 120 includes, in some embodiments, system 10, one or more lamps that are installed in fixed locations, and is able to communicate with the processor 120 via a managed lighting network 140. In some other embodiments, individually controllable lamps 150 may include one or bluedreamer lamps, which connect via the lighting network, which may include other types of communication lines, for example, an Ethernet connection or a wireless connection. The connection between the processor 120 and a controllable lighting network 140 may include a control command transmitted from the Executive module 220 of the processor 120 lamps 150. These commands may cause one or more lamps 150, such as on, off, or increasing or decreasing the intensity or the change in the spectral power distribution of illumination.

The term "lamp" should be understood as a reference to any one or more of a variety of radiation sources, including, but not limited to, the sources based on LEDs (which includes one or more LEDs as defined above), sources with a filament (e.g., filament lamps, halogene lamps), fluorescent sources, phosphorescent sources, high-intensity discharge sources (e.g., sodium parovarnye lamps, mercury parovarnye lamps and lamps on the basis of the halide), lasers, other types of electroluminescent sources, bioluminescent sources (e.g., sources of fire), sociallyessential sources (e.g. gas mantle mesh, sources based on emission coal Doo�and), photo-luminescent sources (e.g., gaseous discharge sources), cathode luminescent sources using electronic satiation, galvano-luminescent sources, crystallochemistry sources, chinauniversity sources, thermoluminescent sources, triboluminescent sources, sonoluminescent sources, radio-luminescent sources, and luminescent polymers. The term "lighting unit" is used here to refer to a device that includes one or more light sources of same or different types. The lighting unit may have any one of various mounting locations for the source (sources) of light, structural/hull form and location, and/or electrical and mechanical connection configuration. Also, a given lighting unit optionally may communicate with (e.g., include, contact and/or join together with) various other components (e.g., control circuit) related to the source (sources) of light. "Unit lighting, based on led" refers to a lighting unit that includes one or more light sources based on LEDs, as discussed above, by themselves or in combination with other light sources not based on LEDs.

Dunn�th lamp can be configured, to generate electromagnetic radiation within the visible spectrum, outside the visible spectrum or in combination of both. Therefore, the terms "light" and "radiation" are used interchangeably here. In addition, the lamp may include as an integral component of one or more filters (e.g., color filters, lenses or other optical components. It should also be understood that the lamps can be configured for a variety of applications, including, but not limited to, indication, display and/or lighting. "Source of illumination" is a light source which, in particular, configured to generate radiation having a sufficient intensity to effectively illuminate an internal or external space. In this context, "sufficient intensity" refers to sufficient radiation power in the visible spectrum generated in the space or environment (the unit "lumens" often is used to represent the full light output from the light source in all directions, in terms of radiation power or "luminous flux") to provide external illumination (i.e., light that may be perceived indirectly and which may, for example, be reflected from one or more diverse intermediate surface�opportunities before perception in whole or in part).

The term "light source" should be understood as a reference to any one or more of a variety of radiation sources, including, but not limited to, the sources based on LEDs, sources with a filament (e.g., filament lamps, halogen lamps), fluorescent sources, phosphorescent sources, high-intensity discharge sources (e.g., sodium parovarnye lamps, mercury parovarnye lamps and lamps on the basis of the halide), lasers, other types of electroluminescent sources, bioluminescent sources (e.g., flames), sociallyessential sources (e.g. gas mantle mesh, sources based on radiation from a carbon arc), photo-luminescent sources (e.g., gaseous discharge sources), cathode luminescent sources using electronic satiation, galvanoplastia sources, crystallochemistry sources, chinauniversity sources, thermoluminescent sources, triboluminescent sources, sonoluminescent sources, radio-luminescent sources, and luminescent polymers.

As used herein, for purposes of this disclosure, the term "led" should be understood to include any electroluminescent diode or other type of system of injection of charge carriers�/systems based on semiconductor junction, which is capable of generating radiation in response to an electrical signal. Thus, the term "led" includes, but is not limited to this, various structures based on semiconductors that emit light in response to electric current, light emitting polymers, organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs), electroluminescent strips, and similar structures. In particular, the term "led" refers to light emitting diodes of all types (including semiconductor and organic light emitting diodes) that may be configured to generate radiation in one or more of: the infrared spectrum, ultraviolet spectrum and the visible spectrum (generally including wavelengths from approximately 400 nanometers to approximately 700 nanometers). Some examples of LEDs include, but are not limited to, various types of LEDs infrared LEDs, ultraviolet radiation, LEDs red radiation, LEDs blue color emission, LEDs green radiation, LEDs yellow radiation, LEDs amber radiation, LEDs orange radiation and LEDs white radiation (discussed further below). Also due� to be clear that the LEDs can be configured and/or controlled to generate radiation having different bandwidth (for example, the full bandwidth at the level of half-maximum (FWHM)) for a given spectrum (e.g., narrow bandwidth, broad bandwidth), and a variety of dominant wavelengths within a given General color classification.

For example, one implementation of an led configured to generate essentially white light (e.g., led white light, can include some crystals which respectively emit different spectra of electroluminescence that, in combination, mix to form essentially white light. In another implementation, the led of white color luminescence can be associated with a phosphor material that converts the electroluminescence having a first spectrum, the second spectrum to another. In one example implementation of electroluminescence having a relatively short wavelength range and narrow bandwidth, "pumps" the phosphor material, which, in turn, emits radiation with a longer wavelength that has, to some extent, a wider range.

It should also be understood that the term "led" does not limit the type of physical and/or electronic�quarter led Assembly. For example, as discussed above, an led may refer to a single light-emitting source that has multiple crystals that are configured to respectively emit different spectra of radiation (e.g., which may or may not be individually controllable). Also, the led may be associated with a phosphor that is considered as an integral part of the led (for example, some types of white LEDs glow). In General, the term "led" may refer to LEDs with the housing, the LEDs without LEDs for surface mounting, for mounting LEDs crystal on the Board, the LEDs to be mounted in T-shaped buildings, the light-emitting diodes with radial casing, the light-emitting diodes with large scattering power enclosure LEDs including some type of housing and/or optical element (e.g., a diffusing lens), etc.

This lamp can be configured to generate electromagnetic radiation within the visible spectrum, outside the visible spectrum, or in combination of both. Therefore, the terms "light" and "radiation" are used herein interchangeably. In addition, the lamp may include, as an integral component, one or more filters (e.g., color filters), lens Il� other optical components. It should also be understood that the lamps can be configured for a variety of applications, including, but not limited to this, indication, display and/or lighting. "Source of illumination" is a light source which, in particular, configured to generate radiation having a sufficient intensity to effectively illuminate an internal or external space. In this context, "sufficient intensity" refers to sufficient radiation power in the visible spectrum generated in the space or environment (the unit "lumens" often is used to represent the full light output from the light source in all directions, the terms "radiation" or "luminous flux") to provide external illumination (i.e., light that may be perceived indirectly and which may, for example, be reflected from one or more of a variety of intermediate surfaces before perception in whole or in part).

The term "spectrum" should be understood as a reference to any one or more frequencies (or wavelengths) of radiation produced by one or more lamps. Accordingly, the term "spectrum" refers to frequencies (or wavelengths) not only in the visible range, but also frequencies (or wavelengths) in the infrared, ultraviolet and other�x fields full electromagnetic spectrum. Also, this range may have a relatively narrow bandwidth (for example, the full bandwidth at the level of half-maximum (FWHM)), which has essentially few frequency components or the components of wavelengths) or a relatively wide bandwidth (several frequency components or the components of wavelengths having different relative levels of intensity). It should also be clear that this spectrum can be the result of mixing two or more other spectra (e.g., mixed radiation respectively emitted from multiple light sources). The term "spectral power distribution" is understood as a reference to the power per unit area per unit wavelength of the light or on the contribution of wavelengths for any radiometric quantity (for example, the emitted energy flux of radiation, radiation intensity, radiation, irradiance, islocalhost luminosity or energy).

For purposes of this disclosure, the term "color" is used interchangeably with the term "spectrum". However, the term "color" generally is used to refer originally to a property of radiation that is perceivable by an observer (although this use is not intended to limit the scope of this term). Accordingly, the term "different colors" no�EIT refers to multiple areas of the spectrum having components with different wavelength and/or bandwidth. Also it should be clear that the term "color" may be used in connection with white, and with white light.

In accordance with some embodiments of implementation, the lighting, the nearest to a personal device 40 generated by the lamps 150 may be visible only through the use of technology containing polarized sunglasses and electron closing points. For example, the lamps 150 may repeatedly generate pulses of light technologies, such as electron close glasses can synchronize to lock the same interval of each period lighting and lamps 150 may be configured to bias one or more light pulses in a time interval that is closed or blocked.

In accordance with some other variants of implementation, the light from the lamps 150 nearest to a personal device 40 may contain, for example, light of one color and/or sequence of light sources having different colors.

In yet other embodiments, the lighting, the nearest to a personal device 40 generated by the lamps 150 may be encoded using the corresponding modulated signal corresponding to the user ID related�with the specified personal device 40 or a personal device of another user. In such embodiments, personal device 40 may include at least one sensor for detecting the modulated signal as well as the ability to capture the modulated signal. In this embodiment of the signal may include a modulated signal is detected and captured by the personal device 40.

In other embodiments, system 10 may include schematization to generate a schema (not shown in Fig.1). Schematization can create lighting schemes, or on the basis of input information from the designer lighting, or based on the information captured from the system 10. In some other embodiments, system 10 may have an interface schematization to send the request schema on the remote schematization, where the request includes information indicating at least one of the observed system parameters. Interface schematization also designed to accept a schema from the remote schematization. A local device memory 130 can store the observed system parameters and scheme. In some embodiments, the sensor interface is used to receive additionally the observed system parameters, and the processor is additionally used to modify the schema to compensate for the additional n�blademan system settings. Additionally, market schemes, which are not shown in Fig.1, may connect to the system 10 and can connect to the systems 20 and 30. The processor 120 in accordance with the invention is able to translate the schema into instructions for controlling the output settings of the at least one controllable lighting network. In such embodiments, actuator module 220 generates a signal directed to a controllable lighting network, on the basis of the applicable scheme, any applicable rules of the preferences requested and any applicable adjustments. Where the scheme does not permit applicable to the requested adjustments, Executive module 220 may generate a control signal that affects the requested adjustment. Similarly, where a scheme does not allow the adjustment proposed by the applicable rules of preference, Executive module 220 may generate a control signal that affects the applicable rules of preference. Alternative, Executive module 220 may revoke scheme with the applicable rules of preference and/or requested adjustments.

Fig.3 illustrates the method for obtaining the rules of personal preferences for coverage in the system 10 based on the lighting in accordance with aspects of the invention. In the method of Fig.3 the user starts Persaud�a polling device 40 or any other device identification, such as a radio frequency identification tag (RFID tag) or other means of identification. For example, a user may have a valid personal device 40 links for identification and tracking within the interactive system 10 and then bring it into the interactive system 10. When in the interactive system 10, the user adjusts the lamps 150 in a controllable lighting network 140 through the user interface. In step 330, the module 210 detects information of the user ID and the adjustment requested by an associated user, and in step 340, the module 210 information defines the context of adjustments to the lighting. At optional step 350, the module 210 stores information regulation and associated contexts in the device local memory 130. In step 360 230 inference analyzes the adjustment and associated contexts to identify whether a correlation can be found between controls and contexts. If correlation is found, then in step 380 230 inference creates a rule of personal preference based on the correlation. In step 390, the rule of personal preferences stored in the database 50 of these preferences, along with an associated user ID. Alternatively, if the correlation is not found, then in step 370 machine 230 LogicaCMG� output preserves the adjustment in the base 50 of these preferences, along with an associated user ID.

In some embodiments, module 210 transmits the information signal to the actuating module 220 that includes information associated with the regulations. Depending on run schemes and adjustments permitted by the system 10, Executive module 220, in some embodiments, transmits the control signal sent to controllable lighting network 140 for making adjustments. In some embodiments, the user can set the parameter for informing the Executive module 220 about the level of regulation to be implemented in response to the system information 210 detections personal preferences of the user. This parameter can be set, as far as how fast and how often the lighting may change in response to adjustments detected by the module 210 information. In one embodiment, the implementation of the option may also be sensitive to the context.

According to a variant implementation of the system 10, a rule may be determined when the user adjusts the lamps 150 in lighting network 140 to the appropriate settings under the same contexts after entering into the system 10. After a pre-defined number of cases, for example of the same conduct, a rule can be set, and adjust, the use�data to obtain the rules can be deleted. The pre-defined number of cases can be observed in the same ambient space, the surrounding spaces in the same lighting network or in different lighting networks. If necessary or requested, the user can make further manual adjustment after the implementation of the rules of personal preference. The system 10 detects these new manual adjustment and can receive additional regulations, if regulation can be associated with such a condition, time of day, location in the office, found the task or the location of the system 10. If correlation does not exist, then the rule is not created, and the adjustment is sent to the base 50 of these preferences. Alternatively, if the correlation is weak, the lamps 150 may be gradually adjusted. 230 inference analyzes a gradual adjustment to determine whether the identified correlation between the adjustments and the context in which they are made. If a correlation can be found, a rule is created and stored in the database 50 of these preferences in connection with the user ID. Rules can be stored with level indicator, proportional to the number of manual adjustments or the level of correlation was found. Additionally adjustment can either save�teriorate as another rule, either the old rule may be waived if it is weak, and the new rule can be created.

Fig.4 illustrates a method for applying personal preferences in the interactive system 10 in accordance with aspects of the invention. After the user enters the interactive system 10, in step 410, the module 210 detects information of the user ID and transmits the appropriate signal to the actuating module 220. In step 420, the Executive module 220 verifies the 50 data of the preferences for any user preferences associated with the user ID. If a rule is found, then in step 430, the Executive module 220 retrieves the rule and adjusts the lamps 150 in a controllable lighting network 140, respectively, at stage 440, without the user having to perform manual adjustment. If the rule of preference does not exist, Executive module 220 retrieves any previously stored adjustment from the base 50 preferences and data stored in the device local memory 130 in step 450, and the Executive module 220 adjusts the lamps 150 in accordance with the received adjustment in step 460.

Embodiments of the method of Fig.4 allow further manual adjustments in the interactive system 10, if any exist, to enroll and analysis�be controlled by returning to step 330 of Fig.3.

Method of Fig.4 may similarly be used to apply user's personal preferences in other interactive systems, such as system 20, or 30. In addition, the user can make a manual adjustment in other interactive systems, and to record these adjustments in the base 50 of these preferences and analyze in conjunction with other adjustments to identify correlations. In alternative embodiments, extraction rules, personal preferences may be preferably made via module 210 information than directly through the Executive module 220.

Fig.5 illustrates a method for distinguishing trivial adjustments lighting essential lighting adjustments requested by the user in accordance with embodiments of the invention. Valuation adjustments may be directly proportional to the duration of time spent by the user in the system intended to control, or may be performed through some other function, such as function of squaring the square root function, step function, exponential function, logarithmic function. The system may be configured only to record changes that are above a certain evaluation. For example, changes made in fairly quick succession�Telenesti, can indicate that the user experiments with the system 10. Therefore, changes made in fairly quick succession, are regarded as immaterial adjustment, and such adjustment may not be used to obtain rules. If the user leaves the system shortly after the implementation of the adjustment, the adjustment can be considered trivial or inconsequential, and she may be assigned a low score. Change, followed by the user remaining in the system increased the time period may be given a more significant valuation.

In step 510 of Fig.5 module 210 detects information user manual adjustment (adjustment), and the processor 120 writes them to the device memory 130. In step 520, the module 210 detects information when the user leaves the system 10 or a portion of a system 10 for which the adjustment (adjustment) was made, and the processor 120 records the time of departure of the user. In step 530, in response to the detection of a departure of the user, the processor 120 checks the duration of the user's presence after adjustment (adjustments). If the duration is above a threshold, then in step 540, the Executive module 220 adds the length of time the user is present in the system 10 or portions of the system 10 for which the adjustment (adjustment) was made�and, to record adjustment (adjustments) in the local device memory 130. If the duration of time below the threshold, then in step 550 the Executive module 220 deletes the entry.

The minimum score required to reflect the change machine 230 inference may vary depending on location within the system 10. For example, a very low score may be suitable for a foyer or other short-term places through which users often are. Adjustments made for a long time, may be given a lower rating when the rule is defined.

If you find that is too many manual adjustments or changes were made by the majority of users, so that the actual light output is significantly different from the original output of the light provided by the lighting designer or the Creator of the original scheme, the Executive module 220 and/or 230 inference can send record manual adjustments, or the number of manual adjustments, and amount of adjustments in schematization. Schematization can then accordingly to reformat scheme, which can then be run by the Executive module 220 and/or sent to market schemes, where it can be transferred to other systems such as system 20, and 30.

In yet other embodiments, in �the parameters by ability and/or configuration of each system may not always be possible to fully implement the rules of personal preferences in the database 50 of these preferences. For example, Table 1 shows the adjustment and the resulting rule for the user in office space where the user first sits in the lounge chair before moving to his desktop. On the basis of the adjustment data and context, are presented in Table 1, 230 inference in accordance with the invention can obtain a rule for switching the light sources on 100% when the user moves from lounge chairs to the desktop.

The user then navigates to the office C, which is a system that is different from office A or B and office C does not include location sensors as part of its information system, but may include detector input. Resulting context data, which are shown in Table 1, may not be collected, but an existing rule (rule) or old adjustments may still allow the light source (automatic control at 100% after a mean time of 45 minutes, and/or partial information for this event can be recorded. If the user then moves to the office of D, with location sensors, a rule can be accurately set. The rules stored in the database preferences can therefore be used fully or partially, depending on the ability of a particular system in which the user navigates.

Table 2 shows another example where the light sources in the Ob�CE can be managed by local context, as well as user preference. Based on the data presented in Table 2, the system 10 may obtain a rule for switching the light sources 60% when the user moves away from the working table to the lounge chair, in addition, when the room there are other people present.

Table 2 shows that the rule that, in General, switches the light sources when the user office moves from the desktop to the lounge chair, can be performed depending on local content. When the user takes visitors in the office, which leads to employment of more than one person, the lighting is adjusted to the maximum level or maintained at the maximum level.

In accordance with some embodiments of the invention, the processor 120 can control the lighting network 140 in the system 10 on the basis of votes received from other users or from personal devices associated with other users.

Fig.6a illustrates a method for changing the rules of the personal preferences of the user based on votes from other users, in accordance with a variant implementation of the invention. After the user bearing the means of identification, such as personal device connection 40, is moved to the system 10, in step 600, the processor 120 determines the rule of personal preference that has a likelihood value associated with a user. If the user is the only person in sist�10 IU, the user's personal preferences rule is not changed, and the lamps 150 may be adjusted in accordance with the user's personal preferences rule, using the methods that are explained in Fig.3 and 4. However, if at least one other user is present in the system 10, the preference of another user (users) can be considered before any adjustment is made. In step 610, at least the voice from the other user (user) is taken so that adjustments can be made in accordance with a more appropriate rule by majority. After taking any votes from other users in step 620, the processor 120 adjusts the value of the likelihood custom rules personal preferences on the basis of votes received from other users.

The user can only partly be ready to change his personal preferences or improvement based on the votes of other users. The level of change may vary based on the thresholds set by the user. The threshold value determines the number of votes needed to change its rules preferences. In addition, the threshold value may specify a value with which the rule preferences may bytessent. When the ballot reaches the threshold, the rule personal preference is changed and saved as a new rule. If the ballot does not reach the threshold, the rule of personal preference does not change. Additionally, the level of regulation may vary based on the number of other users in the system 10. Votes can be made by users from multiple systems, such as systems 20 and 30, and votes may be prompted for an administrator or other user of system 10.

Fig.6b illustrates another method for changing the rules of the personal preferences of the user based on votes from other users according to the embodiment of the invention. The first user, bearing the means of identification, such as personal device connection 40, is moved to the system 10, where the second user. In step 630, the processor 120 determines the rule of personal preference that has a likelihood value associated with the first user. In step 640, the processor 120 further defines a first set of criteria for the first user, and in step 650 the second set of criteria for the second user. After both sets of criteria identified in step 660, the Executive module 220 compares the first set of criteria and a second set of criteria each�. The second user, based on the comparison, vote on personal preference of the first user, so that the personal preference of the first user can be adjusted to more appropriate rules by the second user. In step 670, the processor 120 receives the voice of the second user, and in step 680 adjusts the value of the likelihood the rules of the personal preferences of the first user based on the votes received from the second user.

In embodiments, the second user may alternatively to base his vote on factors other than the comparison of the first set of criteria of the first user with the second set of criteria of the second user. For example, the first set of criteria may differ significantly from the second set of criteria, and the comparison of these two sets of criteria can represent the opposite of the preferences of each user. In this case, based on the comparison of the second user will probably vote against the rules of the personal preferences of the first user and reduce the likelihood value the rules of the personal preferences of the first user by a certain value. However, the first and second users may spend a significant amount of time interacting with each other, and can install other General in�interests among themselves. In this case, despite how different the first and second sets of criteria, the second user may not vote against the rules of the personal preferences of the first user. 230 inference can ignore the comparison of the two sets of criteria, when available other considerations. The voice of the second user may not reduce the likelihood value the rules of the personal preferences of the first user so much.

In accordance with some embodiments of the invention, the processor 120 can control the lamps 150 in the system 10 based on the control history associated with the user ID. Fig.7 illustrates a method for changing personal preferences of the user based on its history of regulation in accordance with aspects of the invention. After the first user brings a personal device connection 40 in the system 10, Executive module 220 determines a rule personal preferences of the first user in step 700. Because the second user is also present in the system 10, in step 710, the Executive module 220 also determines a rule personal preferences for the second user. In step 720, the processor 120 compares two personal foul preference. Then in step 730, the Executive module 220 checks, e�whether the first user ever voted for any personal preference rules in response to the comparison, which is the same as the comparison of the rules of the personal preferences of the first and second user. If there is no history of regulation, then in step 740 230 inference selects the personal preferences of the second user based on the comparison. If the history of the regulation exists, then in step 750, the Executive module 220 determines the previous voice of the first user in the past, and in step 760 230 inference selects, respectively, based on previous votes. The lighting system 10 may be controlled based on the comparison and votes. After taking votes from the first user rule personal preferences of the second user can be changed by adjusting the values of the likelihood the rules of personal preference.

Fig.8 illustrates another method for changing personal preferences based on the history of regulation of the light user in accordance with a variant implementation of the invention. The first user, bearing the means of identification, such as personal device 40, enters the system 10, where there are other users. In step 800, the Executive module 220 determines a set of criteria for the first user. In step 810, the Executive module further determines a rule the staff�tion of preferences and a set of criteria for the second user. After identification of the two sets in step 820, the Executive module 120 compares the two sets of criteria. Then in step 830, the Executive module 220 checks the history of the adjustment of the first user and checks, voted whether the first user in the past against the rules of personal preference, which is the same as a rule the personal preferences of the second user based on a set of criteria, which is the same as the set of criteria of the second user. For example, if the first user is moved to the system 10, where the second user, for which the most preferred green color. Executive module 220 examines the history of the first user adjustments and checks, voted whether the first user against the rules of the personal preferences of the user for whom the preferred green color. If there is no history of regulation, then in step 840 230 inference selects the rules of the personal preferences of the second user based on the comparison. If the history of the regulation exists, then in step 850, the Executive module 220 determines, as the first user had voted against the rules of the personal preferences of other users in the past. In step 860 230 inference selects �sootvetstvenno rules personal preferences of the second user based on previous votes. After taking votes from the first user rule personal preferences of the second user can be changed by adjusting the values of the likelihood of its rules of personal preference.

In another embodiment the actuator module 220 may extract information associated with the interests of all users in the system 10. 230 inference can then identify common interests, such as music, among all users. In addition to using such information to modify personal preferences in lighting, such information can be used for other reasons. For example, such information may be provided to the Manager of the system 10 for future planning as a way to increase the frequency of occurrence of the satisfaction of users and/or user.
