Control Systems 101
How exactly does a control system work? What components are required, and how do they interact with each other?
Each system is configured differently, but the principles are similar. They can be broken down into three main components:
Controls issue commands to the "brain" of the system. They can be programmed to control a single device or sets of devices in scenes.
2. The "Brain"
The "brain" of the system is a central hub that processes commands issued by controls and repeats them to smart devices to be executed.
3. Smart Devices
Smart devices receive and execute commands sent from the "brain". Examples of smart devices are a dimmer or remote power module for a light fixture or a control module for an automated shade.
