  • Publication number: 20190245776
    Abstract: According to some embodiments, a system and method for managing dynamic tunneling in in a mesh network is disclosed. The method comprises associating an application that transmits high density data packets with a first of a plurality of nodes in a mesh network. The first of the plurality of nodes functions as an originator station for transmitting the high-density data packets to a second of the plurality of nodes in the mesh network that functions as a target station. An auto-trigger to be initiated by the application in a case that the application requires more bandwidth is created. In response to the auto-trigger being activated, a message is generated across the plurality of nodes to activate a best path through the mesh network where the message indicates a time duration that the application will require more bandwidth.

  • Patent number: 10101211
    Abstract: The present system provides a sensor clip system that can be clipped to luminaires of a plurality of shapes and sizes and method of using the sensor clip. Some of the sensors are upward looking (into the luminaire) while others are downward looking (away from the luminaire); and thus face in substantially opposite directions. The sensor clip is adjustable in one, two or three dimensions to be able to easily fit with different sized and shaped luminaires, such that the upward looking sensors may face the incoming light and downward looking sensors face away from the light. The sensor clip system may also provide attenuation of the luminous intensity of the emitted light coming out of the luminaires and extends the longevity and usability of the embedded sensor.
