  • Patent number: 11032894
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides an intelligent lighting control system. A detector circuit of a lighting control module detects a line voltage of an electrical line connected to a power terminal of the light control module. The lighting control module is configured to cause a transmission of a quantity of electrical energy to a lighting circuit of a light fixture electrically connected to the lighting control module. The lighting control module reduces a flow of electricity transmitted to the lighting circuit to turn off the respective light fixture in response to detecting substantially no change in the line voltage over a pre-specified period of time.

  • Patent number: 10994038
    Abstract: Methodologies, systems, and devices are disclosed for generating a chemical compound. A reaction chamber holds an amount of a precursor chemical, an activator chamber holds an amount of an activator chemical, and a quenching and neutralizer chamber holds an amount of quenching and neutralizing chemicals.

  • Patent number: 10921350
    Abstract: A voltage testing system. The voltage testing system includes a pair of probes, each having a housing with a first end and a second end, wherein the pair of probes are electrically connected by a wire affixed to the first end of each of the pair of probes. A prong extends from the second end of the pair of probes, wherein a pin extends therethrough. The pin is electrically conductive, such that the pin is in communication with a fuse and a plurality of lights within the housing. The pin can be spring-biased such that a connection is formed between the fuse and the pin when the force is applied to the pin. The fuse can sever the electrical connection when a set current is transmitted through the fuse, such that a user is protected from excessive currents. The plurality of lights illuminate in response to receiving a preset voltage.
