Groups Overview

Users can easily and quickly set up an Enlighted lighting system using the Groups feature to program Switch, Motion, and Daylight Groups in Manage v4.5 or above. A Group can be any of the following:

  • Switch Group - Controls a group of sensors to turn on or off the lights with a switch. Devices in a Switch Group include Sensors, Plugload Controllers (PLCs), and Switches.
  • Motion Group - When sensors in a room are configured as a  Motion Group, the occupancy detection is communicated to all fixtures when an occupant enters the room. The fixtures will react and adjust their light levels according to their configuration in their profile.  
  • Daylight Group - Daylight Groups provide a consistent dim level across a group of fixtures for improved aesthetics. The lights are dimmed or brightened to achieve a uniform group light level in response to daylight fluctuations. Daylight Groups aim to find the right balance between aesthetics, occupant comfort, and energy efficiency. Read the Recommended Preliminary Steps for Creating a Daylight Group for additional information. The Daylight group includes only sensors.

    Group Types

    • A Switch Group will consist of Sensors, Gateways, PLCs, and Switches.

    • A Motion Group will include Sensors, Gateways, and PLCs.  

    • A Daylight Group will consist of only Sensors and Gateways.

    After a user has selected the devices for creating a Motion, Switch, or Daylight Group, the Manage app will automatically include or exclude devices based on the Group Type. For example, Switches will be added to a Switch Group, and excluded from the Motion Group.

Things to know before creating a Group

When creating a group such as a Switch, Motion, or Daylight Group,

  • There is no maximum limit on the number of sensors when creating a group.
  • A single sensor can be associated with up to five groups when creating Switch or Motion Groups.
  • When a Group is created on the chosen floor, it cannot be moved to another floor.
  • The system automatically generates Group Names when the user saves them. Users can rename the Group Names later.
  • The colored device Groups on the floor map are a quick visual indication of the interrelated items—such as sensors, PLCs, and Switches—so that you can quickly track the devices belonging to a Group.
  • The sensor firmware must be 5.1v and above when creating Daylight Groups.
  • The Information (i) icon legend describes the device icons on the floor map.

Limitations

  • Sensors that are already part of a Daylight Group cannot be added to another Daylight Group. 
  • A switch can only be associated with one Switch Group. If a switch is already associated with group A and you wish to add it to group B, you should first remove it from group A before adding it to group B.

To create a single Switch, Motion, or Daylight Group, refer to the

Overview

The physical switch, mounted on a wall near an entry or exit, can be paired with the Enlighted sensor network to control a group of fixtures and scenes. Up to four Enlighted Room Controllers (ERCs) or EnOcean physical switches can be associated with a virtual switch to control a group of fixtures' light level. This article explains how to create a Switch Group. To edit or delete a Switch Group, see Rename, Edit and Delete Groups. The Switch Control for Light Fixtures describes the ERC switch button functionality.

Note: Since all fixtures and Plugload Controllers in a group must be bound to the same Gateway (GW), fixtures from other floors cannot be supported.

Creating a Switch Group

You can easily and quickly set up an Enlighted lighting system using Switch Group to program a switch by adding sensors to a Switch Group to turn on or off a group of lights with a switch. However, a Switch Group created on one floor cannot be moved to another floor. Refer to the Groups Overview article for more information. 

To create a Switch Group,  

  1. Click Facilities in the left navigation pane and select a floor.
  2. Click on the Groups tab. The Switch, Motion, and Daylight Groups are displayed in the right pane. In addition, the floor map shows Switch, Motion, and Daylight groups identified and grouped by color on the floor map.

Switch_Screen.png

  1. Select the Gateway associated with the devices. There are two ways to select a Gateway:
    • If you know the Gateway name, use the Gateway filter mceclip0.pngicon to select a Gateway from the dropdown list, and click Apply to view the devices belonging to the Gateway.
    • If you do not know the Gateway name, right-click on the Gateway in the floor map and select Filter Using this Gateway to view the devices belonging to the selected Gateway.

Filter_GW_Rightclick.png

  1. Select the Switch group check box. The parameters corresponding to the Switch group are highlighted.

Configuring Switch Group Parameters

Now, select the Switch Group parameters for the selected sensors.

  1. Select the required Template from the dropdown. For example, the default Template_20_40_60 applies three scenes where lights change from 20% to 40% and 60% when an ERC switch Scene button is pressed. If you would like to create additional scenes, refer to Configure Scenes.
  2. Select the appropriate Type,
    • Auto – The fixtures turn the lights to the 'maximum light level' defined in the lighting profile when it detects motion.
    • Manual – The fixtures behave as if a switch controls them. For example, a fixture will not turn on the light when occupancy is detected. Instead, press the button on the switch to turn on the light. However, for safety concerns in very low or no light situations, fixtures will always turn on the light when occupancy is detected.
  1. Enter the Initial Time. The Initial Time will determine the time the sensor takes to transition from Manual or Auto. 
    For example, suppose the Initial Time is set to zero. In that case, the sensor will transition to Auto-off after a period determined by the [Active motion window plus Extension period equals Active motion window time)], i.e., 2 x Active Motion Window. If the Initial Time has a non-zero value, then the time taken to transition to Auto-off would be the Initial time plus the Active Motion Window (extension time). On the other hand, suppose the sensor detects motion during the extension time; in that case, the sensor will transition to Auto-off after an additional extension time (Active Motion Window time) starting from the moment the motion was detected.
  1. To Recall the Lighting Scene Color for Tunable White fixtures before the lights were turned off, click the three ellipses dots next to the Initial Time and choose an option.
      • On-Off Sticky Color – Configures the fixture to recall the last scene color temperature when the fixture is turned back on.
      • Override Sticky Color – Configures the fixture to recall the last scene color temperature after the Override period is expired. The Override period is 60 minutes for any manual adjustments to a fixture's light or color profile settings. Refer to the Override Light Levels/Color Temporarily for a description of temporarily overriding the light profile settings. 
        For additional information, refer to Configure Recall the Lighting Scene Color.

This article applies to Manage v4.5. Toggle the New User Experience button to view the new Manage UI. If you do not see the toggle button to switch between the New UI and Classic UI, please contact Enlighted Support to enable the toggle button in your Manage application. 

Overview

Daylight groups provide a uniform light dim level across a group of fixtures for improved aesthetics. The lights are dimmed or brightened to achieve a uniform group light level in response to fluctuations in daylight. Daylight groups aim to find the right balance between aesthetics, occupant comfort, and energy efficiency. This article explains how to create a Daylight Group. To edit or delete a Daylight Group, see Rename, Edit and Delete Groups.

Note: Since all fixtures and Plug Load Controllers in a group must be bound to the same Gateway (GW), fixtures from other floors cannot be supported.

Creating a Daylight Group

Before creating a daylight group, read the Recommended Preliminary Steps for Creating a Daylight Group.

To create a Daylight Group,  

  1. Click Facilities in the left navigation pane and select a floor.
  2. Click on the Groups tabs. The Switch, Motion, and Daylight Groups list is displayed in the right pane. In addition, the floor map shows Switch, Motion, and Daylight groups identified and grouped by color on the floor map.

Daylight_Screen.png

  1. Select the Gateway associated with the devices. There are two ways to select a Gateway:
    • If you know the Gateway name, use the Gateway filter GW_Filter_Icon.png icon to select a Gateway from the dropdown list, and click Apply to view the devices belonging to the Gateway.
    • If you do not know the Gateway name, right-click on the Gateway in the floor map and select Filter Using this Gateway to view the devices belonging to the selected Gateway.

Filter_GW_Rightclick.png

  1. Select the Daylight group check box. The parameters corresponding to the Daylight group are highlighted.

Configure Daylight Group Parameters

Now, select the Daylight Group parameters for the selected sensors.

  1. Light Level - Select a method for calculating the Group Light level.
    • Average Daylight – Some fixture light levels in the group will be brighter than the Target Ambient Light Levels, and some less bright. On average, the light levels will meet the target. This is the recommended option to use.
    • Maximum Daylight – Fixture light levels will optimize for reduced energy usage. If all the sensors have the same target, then the sensor with the maximum daylight will be the sensor that dictates the Group Light Level. As daylight increases, the lights will be dimmed to the minimum required amount of light. With this setting, no occupants will have too much light, and occupants can always turn on their task lighting to increase comfort.
    • Minimum Daylight – Light levels will ensure all targets are met or exceeded. All fixtures will be set to the maximum light level required to meet all the sensors’ targets. If all the sensors have the same target, then the sensor with the minimum daylight will be the sensor that dictates the Group Light Level. That is, all occupants will have sufficient light. Choose this method in an office environment where it is important that all occupants have sufficient light, and it’s unlikely that too much light would cause discomfort.
    • Daylight at Master Sensor – Light levels will ensure that the user-designated master sensor's light level is set to its target. In this case, the targets, and ambient readings of all other sensors in the group are ignored. This method simulates more traditional lighting systems. It is a safe option only if one sensor accurately reflects the ambient readings for the group.
  2. Choose the group ambient Sensitivity.

Tip: Use a value of 5 for moderate utilization of daylight. The lights will never turn off due to daylight.

The group ambient Sensitivity overrides the sensitivities set in the profile. A value of 10 will allow 100% of the Target Ambient Light Level to be provided by other light sources. A value of 0 requires that the fixtures provide the light, defeating the daylight group's purpose. Choose a value of 5 such that 50% of light may be provided by light sources other than the fixture.

Enable ALS Fast Response

The ALS (Ambient Light Sensor) Fast Response parameter controls how quickly and smoothly the sensor responds to the change in the light level in response to the rapid changes in ambient light levels. To enable this:

  1. Click on the Three ellipsis dots and select the Enable Fast ALS

DL_Menu.png

Select Sensors

  1. Hold the Ctrl key, click and drag a rectangle to select the sensors in the area, or hold the Ctrl key and individually select the sensors to be grouped. Select as many sensors as needed, as there is no maximum limit. However, all sensors must be on the same floor. A sensor may only be part of a single daylight group. If the sensors already exist in another daylight group, you can skip the sensors or manually delete the sensors before adding them to a new group.

Daylight_Group_Sensor_Selection.png

Note: Typically, Plug Load Controllers (PLCs) are not added to a Daylight group. Clicking the PLC icon   removes displaying them from the floorplan. However, if it is accidentally added, the error message "Daylight Groups support sensors only. Other devices selected will be discarded" is displayed. 

  1. Release the Ctrl key to create the Daylight Group with the selected devices. If you are an iOS user, use the cmd key instead of Ctrl.

The newly added Group is added and identified with a '+' symbol preceding the system-generated Daylight Group name in the right pane.

Choose Role

  1. Click on the new Daylight group. The list of sensors assigned to this group is displayed in the right-most pane. Select a role for each sensor.
    • Report and Act – Sensors report their ambient readings, and respond to the Group Light Level. This is the recommended option for typical office environments.
    • Report Only – Sensors only report ambient readings, but act independently of the group and follow whatever behavior their profile dictates.
    • Act Only – Sensors do not report ambient readings, but respond to the Group Light Level.
    • Master Sensor – If you have chosen Daylight at Master Sensor option as the method for calculating the group light level, choose a sensor from the list of sensors to be the Master sensor. Note: This option is available only when ‘Daylight at Master Sensor’ is selected as the calculation method.

Configure Scenes

This article applies to Manage upgraded to v4.5 with new UI features. Toggle the New User Experience button to switch to the new Manage UI and click the Groups tab. If you do not see the toggle button to switch between the New UI and Classic UI, please contact Enlighted Support to enable the toggle button in your Manage application.

Overview

A scene configures light levels to make the space better suited for activities. You can create new scenes to control light levels for a group of fixtures associated with the Switch Group. For example, you may want to turn off the lights directly in front of the screen in a conference room to show a presentation. The lights on the room's perimeter may be off or barely lit, and the lights directly above the viewers are set to a level bright enough to take notes. In this case, you will have to configure three custom scenes and set the order in which you want them to appear. Pressing and holding the ERC Switch Scene button will start switching between scenes.

You can create new custom scenes to control light levels for a group of fixtures or have them go ON/OFF with the following two preprogrammed scenes: 

  1. All On – Sets the light level to 100% or to the current value of "Max Light Level when on" for fixtures controlled by the switch. See Understanding Profile Basic Attributes for Max Light Level when on.
  2. All Off – Sets the light level to 0% (off) for all fixtures controlled by the switch.

The two programmed scenes cannot be edited or deleted and thus are not listed in the scene list under the Scene tab. You can create additional scenes to set the light level individually for each fixture controlled by the switch. All fixtures controlled by a switch are affected when a scene is activated. 

Configure Scene

To configure a scene for a Switch Group,

  1. Click Facilities in the left navigation pane and select a floor.
  2. Click on the Groups tab. The Switch, Motion, and Daylight Groups are displayed in the right pane. In addition, the floor map shows Switch, Motion, and Daylight groups identified and grouped by color on the floor map.
  3. Select the Switch Group in the right panel and click on the three ellipsis dots next to the Switch Group name.
  4. Click Configure scenes. The Configure Scene window appears.

Configure Recall the Lighting Scene Color

This article describes how to recall a lighting scene color intensity for Tunable White fixtures before the lights are turned off. The lights will come back on with the last scene color temperature instead of the max. color temperature before the lights are turned off.

Each set of light level and color intensity settings for a fixture is called a Scene. When fixtures are configured for Tunable White, the color temperature describes how warm (yellow or orange) or cool (white or blue) the light appears. Pressing and holding the ERC Switch buttons one and two increase or decrease the color temperature of the fixtures correspondingly.

For example, lights in a room are configured for 4000k color temperature for a presentation, and after 15 minutes, the lights are configured to dim to 2000k using the ERC switch. Due to no occupancy, the lights turn off. When the lights are turned on with the ERC, the lights will come back with the last scene color temperature of 2000k instead of the max color temperature.
