Description

LIGHTING CONTROL DEVICE

FIELD OF THE INVENTION

The present invention relates to a control device, and more particularly to a control device that can control a light source remotely.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

Lamps are installed in most homes, factories, buildings, and the like to provide sufficient light. In general, a lamp is turned on/otf through a switch disposed on the wall. When the user wants to turn the lamp on or off, it is necessary for the user to walk to the switch to turn on/off the lamp. As a result, it is unsatisfactory in operation.

In order to solve such a problem, there is a control device for controlling a lamp through an infrared remote control on the market. The control device has a receiver electrically connected to the lamp and an infrared emitter. The infrared emitter can transmit a tum-on signal and a turn-off signal to the receiver. When the user wants to turn the lamp on or off, the lamp can be turned on or off by simply aligning the infrared emitter with the receiver and transmitting the turn-on signal or the turn-off signal. However, although such a control device can achieve the function of controlling the lamp remotely through the cooperation of the infrared emitter and the receiver, if the user wants to control the lamps in different spaces, for example, the lamps in the living room and the bathroom, the user has to walk into each space and align the infrared emitters with the receivers. It is inconvenient for operation.

Accordingly, the inventor of the present invention has devoted himself based on his many years of practical experiences to solve these problems.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

The primary object of the present invention is to provide a lighting control device that can control a plurality of bases in different spaces by operating a controller, thereby allowing lamps located on the bases to be turned on or off There is no need for the user to walk into the space with the lamps. The user can turn on/off the lamps in each space without walking, improving the convenience of operation greatly. Furthermore, the present invention is provided with a logic unit, and the logic unit can intelligently learn and record the turn-on and turn off configurations of the bases to achieve the convenience of operation.

In order to achieve the above object, the present invention provides a lighting control device. The lighting control device comprises a switch and a controller. The switch is electrically connected to a mains supply and at least one base. The base has at least one mounting member for mounting a lamp. The switch has a first receiving unit, a first transmitting unit, and a distributing unit electrically connected to the first receiving unit and the first transmitting unit. The controller has a second receiving unit, a second transmitting unit, a display unit, and a logic unit. The logic unit is electrically connected to the second receiving unit, the second transmitting unit and the display unit. The logic unit is configured to execute a program sequence and send a signal to the first receiving unit through the second transmitting unit. When the first receiving unit receives the signal, the distributing unit performs a turn-on operation or a turn-off operation for the base. When the tum-on operation is performed, the dispensing unit commands the base to supply power to the mounting member so that the lamp of the mounting member emits light, and the first transmitting unit transmits a first feedback signal to the second receiving unit so that the logic unit displays the first feedback signal on the display unit. When the turn-off operation is performed, the dispensing unit commands the base to stop supplying power to the mounting member so that the lamp of the mounting member stops emitting light, and the first transmitting unit transmits a second feedback signal to the second receiving unit so that the logic unit displays the second feedback signal on the display unit.

Preferably, the signal, the first feedback signal and the second feedback signal are a communication protocol that is infrared, Bluetooth, ZigBee or Wi-Fi.

Preferably, the controller is connected to an interconnected network. The interconnected network is able to control the controller remotely, commanding the logic unit to execute the program sequence

Preferably, the program sequence records the tum-on operation or the turn-off operation performed by the mounting member of the base in the past through the first feedback signal and the second feedback signal and converts it to at least one sub-program sequence. The subprogram sequence may directly command the base to perform the tum-on operation or the turn-off operation performed in the past.

Preferably, the controller has a plurality of buttons. Each button corresponds to each subprogram sequence. When one of the buttons is pressed, the controller commands the logic unit to execute the sub-program sequence corresponding to the button.

The above objects and advantages of the present invention will be readily understood from the following detailed description of the embodiments, with reference to the accompanying drawings.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS FIG. 1 is a block diagram showing the circuit of the present invention; and FIG. 2 is a schematic view of the present invention when in use, showing that the user controls each base through a controller.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS FIG. 1 and FIG. 2 illustrate a preferred embodiment of the present invention for illustrative purposes only, and the present invention is not limited to the embodiment.

As shown in FIG. 1 and FIG. 2, the present invention provides a lighting control device. The lighting control device comprises a switch 1 and a controller 2. The switch 1 is electrically connected to a mains supply 3 and at least one base 4. Each base 4 has at least one mounting member 42 for mounting a lamp 41. As shown in FIG. 2, this embodiment has three bases 4. The mounting member 42 of each of the three bases 4 is provided with a lamp 41.

The switch 1 has a first receiving unit 11, a first transmitting unit 12, and a distributing unit 13 electrically connected to the first receiving unit 11 and the first transmitting unit 12.

The controller 2 has a second receiving unit 21, a second transmitting unit 22, a display unit 23, and a logic unit 24. The logic unit 24 is electrically connected to the second receiving unit 21, the second transmitting unit 22, and the display unit 23. The logic unit 24 is configured to execute a program sequence and send a signal to the first receiving unit 11 through the second transmitting unit 22. When the first receiving unit 11 receives the signal, the distributing unit 13 will perform a turn-on operation or a turn-off operation for each of the bases 4. When the turn-on operation is performed, the dispensing unit 13 commands each of the bases 4 to supply power to the mounting member 42 so that the lamp 41 of each mounting member 42 emits light, and the first transmitting unit 11 transmits a first feedback signal to the second receiving unit 21, so that the logic unit 24 displays the first feedback signal on the display unit 23. When the turn-off operation is performed, the dispensing unit 13 commands each of the bases 4 to stop supplying power to the mounting member 42 so that the lamp 41 of each mounting member 42 stops emitting light, and the first transmitting unit 11 transmits a second feedback signal to the second receiving unit 21, so that the logic unit 24 displays the second feedback signal on the display unit 23. The user can know whether the lamp 41 on each of the three bases 4 emits light through the display unit 23. In the embodiment, the signal, the first feedback signal and the second feedback signal may be a communication protocol, such as infrared, Bluetooth, ZigBee or Wi-Fi.

Preferably, the program sequence may record the tum-on operation or the turn-off operation performed by the mounting member 42 of each of the bases 4 in the past through the first feedback signal and the second feedback signal and convert it to at least one sub-program sequence. The sub-program sequence may directly command each of the bases 4 to perform the turn-on operation or the turn-off operation performed in the past. For example, the distributing unit 13 has commanded two of the bases 4 to perform the turn-on operation so that the corresponding lamps 41 emit light and transmit the first feedback signal to the second receiving unit 21, and the other base 4 performs the turn-off operation so that the corresponding lamp 41 stops emitting light and transmits the second feedback signal to the second receiving unit 21. The program sequence records the operations performed by each of the bases 4 by analyzing the first feedback signal and the second feedback signal, and converts them into a sub-program sequence. When the sub-program sequence is executed, two of the bases 4 will perform the tum-on operation again, and the other base 4 will perform the turn-off operation again.

Furthermore, the controller 2 has a plurality of buttons (not shown in the drawings). Each button corresponds to each sub-program sequence. When one of the buttons is pressed, the controller 2 commands the logic unit 24 to execute the sub-program sequence corresponding to the button, thereby allowing the user to execute the sub-program sequence quickly through each of the buttons. In addition, an interconnected network 25 is connected to the controller 2.

The interconnected network 25 can control the controller 2 remotely, commanding the logic unit 24 to execute the program sequence, thereby allowing the user to control each of the bases 4 for performing the turn-on operation or the turn-off operation through the controller 2 in any place having the interconnected network.

When the present invention is in use, each of the bases 4 is electrically connected to the switch 1 provided by the present invention to complete the installation. When the user wants to control the lamp 41 on each of the bases 4, the user only needs to operate the controller 2 to command the logic unit 24 to execute the program sequence, so that the distributing unit 13 performs the turn-on operation or the turn-off operation for each of the bases 4 to control the lamps 41 to be turned on/off

According to the above description, the conventional control device needs to be moved into the space with the lamp to be controlled, and the infrared emitter is aligned with the receiver to control each lamp. In the present invention, if the lamp 41 on each base 4 is to be controlled, there is no need for the user to walk into the space with the lamp 41. The user only needs to execute the program sequence by operating the controller 2 to control a plurality of bases 4 in different spaces, and each base 4 performs the turn-on or turn-off operation to turn on/off the lamp 41, thereby improving the convenience of operation greatly. Furthermore, the present invention may execute the program sequence to record the turn-on and turn-off operations of the bases 4 and convert them into sub-program sequences through the logic unit 11, thereby allowing the logic unit 11 to intelligently learn and record the tum-on and turn off configurations of the bases 4 to achieve the convenience of operation.

Although particular embodiments of the present invention have been described in detail for purposes of illustration, various modifications and enhancements may be made without departing from the spirit and scope of the present invention. Accordingly, the present invention is not to be limited except as by the appended claims.
