  • Publication number: 20210315074
    Abstract: A luminaire adapted to apply an auto-gradient effect across pixels has an interface coupled by a connection to a controller. The controller has electronic circuitry that receives a predetermined start light parameter for a start pixel of a luminaire and receives a predetermined end light parameter for an end pixel of the first luminaire, the predetermined end light parameter greater than the predetermined start light parameter. The controller circuitry then automatically interpolates a gradient effect for a middle light parameter of each of a plurality of middle pixels of the luminaire based on the start and end predetermined light parameters. The controller circuitry then outputs control signals having the start, end and middle light parameters to the start, end and middle light pixels, respectively, through the connection and to the interface.

  • Patent number: 11021893
    Abstract: A security system for a building has multiple lock modules. Each lock module is associated with a particular door and has an unlocked position that allows the particular door to open and a locked position that prevents the particular door from opening. Each lock module includes a door status signal and a controller. The door status signal includes a unique identifier for the particular door associated with the lock module and a status that identifies when the lock module is in the locked position. The controller transmits the door status signal for the lock module. A lock module command signal received by at least some of the lock modules directs at least some of the lock modules to reposition to either the unlocked position or the locked position.

  • Publication number: 20210087851
    Abstract: A security system for a building includes a plurality of lock modules. Each lock module is associated with a particular door and has an unlocked position and a locked position. Each lock module includes a lock bar, an actuator, and a controller. The lock bar has a first position that allows the particular door to open and a second position that extends from a door frame, a wall, or a floor surface adjacent to the particular door to prevent the particular door from opening. The actuator moves the lock bar between the first and second positions. The controller is operably connected to the actuator and transmits a door status signal that uniquely identifies the particular door. A lock module command signal received by the plurality of lock modules directs the plurality of lock modules to reposition to either the unlocked position or the locked position.
