The Alec LC1 controller is an all-in-one lighting controller which turns any compatible 0-10V dimmable LED lights into smart lights. Smart lighting automatically reduces the light output when artificial light is not required.
Equipped with a sensitive passive infra-red occupancy sensor, a precision light meter and a high resolution 0-10V dimming output, the compact and low cost LC1 integrates smart lighting control technology into each and every individual luminaire!

How Does LC1 Work?
Alec LC1 attaches to the low voltage side of the dimmable LED driver circuit to power itself, and control the 0-10V dimming signals of the LED driver to reduce luminaire brightness when artificial light is not needed. Measuring only 2” x 1” x 0.4”, the inconspicuous LC1 can be attached to any compatible, 0-10V dimmable LED lighting fixture and turn it into a Smart Light with integrated sensor and controller.
How to Configure LC1 Controller?
1. Configuring with a screw driver
Ease of use is what differentiates the LC1 controller from traditional lighting controllers. You can easily change important control parameters using only the 3 trimmer potentiometers that are exposed when you slide open the trimmer cover:
1) Vacancy time-out: Dim the light when the time-out expires with no occupant detected. Adjustable from 1 to 30 minutes.
2) Working brightness level: Adjust to the most comfortable light level when occupied.
3) Vacancy light level: Set to either:
Typically, these are the only parameters you need to set for LC1 to work in most commercial lighting applications.
2. Configuring via USB (optional)
Alternatively, you could connect LC1’s USB port to an Android smart phone/tablet (USB-OTG cable required), or to a PC. In this way, not only can you precisely define the abovementioned 3 values, you can also change many other default parameters, such as:
