Modern distributed lighting systems require advanced control systems because of the large amount of light sources and manipulable parameters. In this position paper we explore the unknown dimensions that can be used to describe control from full-user to full-system control. We believe a hybrid between the two will be most desirable. Combined with explicit user interaction, autonomous system behavior will create intelligent systems, able to adapt to users and contexts. This provides interesting opportunities for improved user experience as well as functional added value, for instance in energy saving or easy commissioning of light infrastructure. Based on different types of interactions, different levels of interaction-initiative and different interaction layers, a useful mapping of such hybrid control can be made. In our lighting living labs, we have implemented different controls in order to evaluate them on the basis of user experience.
