LightRules API

Extending the Power of Intelligent Lighting

LightRules features an Application Programming Interface (API) that enables the exchange of information with third-party systems and applications such as building management systems and energy dashboards.

LightRules API allows customers to access lighting, energy use, and occupancy data from third-party programs using an open standards format. Real-time sensor data and historic information can be extracted from any LightRules instance and filtered by fixture, lighting zone, or room. Lighting profiles can be remotely activated via the API to create custom controls or trigger energy demand reductions.

In order to utilize LightRules API, customers must have an Intelligent Lighting Network that includes LightRules and Digital Lumens fixtures or Digital Light Agents (DLAs). The LightRules API is invoked over HTTP/S using XML or JSON data formats.
