LLLCs have sensors and controls within individual fixtures that enable them to be controlled remotely or on a case by case basis. Remote control allows users to adjust the programming criteria or illumination levels without replacing the fixtures. In conventional lighting systems lighting zones are defined as a collective unit and thus are centrally controlled. LLLCs however, incorporate sensors such as occupancy, daylight, temperature or receive/broadcast signals into each fixture. Therefore, each fixture has the potential to become a semi-autonomous zone that is capable of responding to small changes in the area the fixture serves. And, individual fixtures can communicate with other fixtures, using wireless or infrared signals, to share data for an even greater potential to increase energy savings and user satisfaction.
