Title: SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR LIGHTING FIXTURE LOCATION MAPPING
Abstract:
Lighting systems and methods for lighting fixture location mapping, for example, using a combination of photosensing readings and/or other sensors to identify a correct mapping. These systems and methods may be used to resolve ambiguities that could not be resolved using other processes, such an auto-commissioning method that identifies more than one possible mapping of the lighting fixtures to spatial locations. Such ambiguities are typically found in floor plans that are symmetrical. The systems and methods of the present invention record and utilize environmental profiles, such as ambient lighting levels and occupancy patterns, to match lighting fixtures to their respective spatial locations and provide resolution to ambiguities in an auto-commissioning method that identifies more than one possible mapping of the lighting fixtures to spatial locations.
