  • Publication number: 20160073479
    Abstract: A modular illumination device, and associated systems and methods, are provided. In some cases, a hub is provided. The hub can, optionally, be configured to receive at least one module via an interface. The hub can comprise an optional fitting configured to be mounted in a light socket, an optional networking component, and/or an optional illumination source. In some cases, the hub can be coupled to a module such that an external surface of the module occupies a relatively large percentage of the external surface area of the coupled hub and module and/or such that a substantially smooth surface is formed between the hub and module. In some cases, the hub can be coupled to a module having a relatively large volume. Also disclosed are covers configured to at least partially enclose wall-mounted electric switches, systems for retrofitting electric switches, and methods of retrofitting electric switches.

  • Patent number: 8585273
    Abstract: Illumination assemblies, components, and related methods are described. An illumination assembly can include at least one solid state light-emitting device, and at least one light guide including a light homogenization region configured to receive light emitted by the solid state light-emitting device and including a light output boundary. The light homogenization region substantially uniformly distributes light outputted over the light output boundary. A wavelength converting material can be disposed within at least a portion of the light homogenization region. In some assemblies, a light extraction region can be configured to receive light from the light output boundary of the light homogenization region, and can have a length along which received light propagates and an emission surface through which light is emitted. The light extraction region can include a wavelength converting material disposed within at least a portion of the light extraction region.

  • Patent number: 8436388
    Abstract: Illumination assemblies, components, and related methods are described. An illumination assembly can include at least one solid state light-emitting device, an emission surface through which light is emitted, and a wavelength converting material that wavelength converts at least some light emitted by the solid state light-emitting device. The wavelength converting material can have a first density per unit area of the emission surface at a first location and a second density per unit area of the emission surface at a second location, wherein the second density is substantially different from the first density, and wherein the density per unit area is defined with a 1×1 cm2 averaging area. Another illumination assembly can include a light guide configured to receive light emitted by a solid state light-emitting device. The light guide can have a length along which received light propagates and an emission surface substantially parallel to the length of the light guide and through which light is emitted.
