  • Patent number: 10638584
    Abstract: A lighting control system includes a monitoring assembly comprising a switch, an energy harvesting device, and radio circuitry. The switch is manually actuated to activate or deactivate network-controlled lamps. The energy harvesting device converts kinetic energy of the actuation of the switch into electric energy that powers the radio circuitry. The radio circuitry wirelessly broadcasts a radio control message to two or more networked controllers that control activation or deactivation of the lamps. The networked controllers communicate with each other and determine which of the networked controllers is a commander controller responsive to receiving the radio control message. The commander controller communicates a control message to other networked controllers to activate or deactivate the lamps based on the radio control message received from the monitoring assembly.

  • Patent number: 10627083
    Abstract: A modular system comprising track-mounted fixtures and track is described. In some embodiments, fixtures access electrical power through electrified railings recessed within a relatively narrow power slot of the track. Primary mechanical support of the fixture weight is optionally provided from a magnetic mounting surface surrounding the power slot. The track cross-section optionally provides mounting surface area on mounting wings, allowing a narrower slot housing. Optionally, secondary mechanical support provided within the slot comprises a deployable anchoring element which laterally expands into a receiving area. Optionally, deployment comprises rotation of the anchoring element. The anchoring element, in some embodiments, acts as a secondary mechanical support, preventing, for example, accidental detachment of the fixture from the slot, without preventing repositioning movements of the fixture along the slot, even when fully deployed.

  • Patent number: 10359184
    Abstract: Disclosed is a laser-based device for use primarily for laser light effects. The laser device comprises multiple red, green, and blue lasers. Each laser has a lens to collimate and focus each individual beam. The lasers are aligned such that each laser shares a common output axis. The intensity of each laser is adjustable thereby allowing the overall output color of the device to change. The overall output has over 16 million colors. Each laser-based device has a gimbal-like system to allow the devices change their orientation. A remote control system allows for the control and synchronization of multiple devices. Multiple devices may connect to the remote control system using cables, wireless transceivers, or both. Multiple devices may be located in close proximity to create a more powerful overall output beam. The remote control system allows for viewer interaction through an application installed onto a personal communication device.
