Create or Edit Light Profile v4.6


Manage is shipped with predefined profile templates; each template contains a single profile instance for
the most common areas and rooms in buildings. The two additional templates shipped are Custom1 and Custom 2, that can be renamed and used for organization-specific use cases. 

Only system and facility administrators can create profile templates and instances, but users can edit the light profile settings. Profile templates and instances are predefined values that determine the light level settings of a fixture; you can modify the values as per your requirement.

For example, you can create a template for standard classrooms and large lecture rooms in a university. Then instances can be created and edited based on needed behavior to match use cases, as shown below. However, the default template cannot be edited, it can only be viewed or exported.


Refer to the following sections to

Create Light Profile

To create profile instance values:

Step 1: Click on Profile Templates in the left panel to display the list of available profile instances.

Step 2: Select the required profile instance.

Step 3: Click the Settings tab.

Step 4: Click Create button.


Step 5: Type a new Profile Name and select a template instance in the Created from drop-down to retrieve information about the specified instance profile, including the min. and max. light profile values. Typically, these are parameter settings adapted according to an area's light requirements.


Step 6: Enter or edit the Profile attributes as per your need. Refer to Understanding Light Profiles v4.6.


  1. You can set four periods of the day: Morning, Day, Evening, and Night. The Day and Evening periods may be selected based on the astronomical clock, which provides the sunrise and sunset time. You can choose to specify the Day and Evening periods to start. You can also select start times based on the local time zone for each period.
  2. Modify the Profile Attributes such as Min Light Level, Max Light Level, Ramp-up Time, Active Motion Window, Motion Sensitivity, and Ambient Sensitivity for each Day and Evening periods as per your requirement. See Understanding Light Profiles v4.6.
