Dynalite is a lighting and automation control system developed in Sydney, Australia by a company of the same name. In the company was bought by Philips to become Philips-Dynalite. The system is commonly used for lighting controlbuilding automationhome automation and room automation applications and is sold worldwide.
User Interfaces – Switches, panels, motion and heat sensors, touch screens and recently IOS devices. Panels are typically standard sized Australian or European standard size wall switch plates, but instead of normal rocker switches, they have buttons of various designs, usually with an indicator LED inside.
Network connectors extend the range of the network, as well as providing integration with other technologies such as AMX, Crestron, etc. The network components are all used to set a system of Areas and Channels. Any given lighting, fan, louvre, and relay circuit is a Channel in an Area. For example, a house might have 3 rooms. Each room is called an Area. The kitchen may contain overhead lights, a range-hood fan and lights over the bench.
These three are called Channels. Those Areas and Channels are in states called Presets. In Preset 1, typically, all lights etc. This is all customisable either by the programmer, or if it has been allowed, by the end user as well.
So, sending ‘Area 3 Preset 4’ will turn off the lights in Area 3 room 3.
Sending ‘Area 3 Preset 2’ will set the lights to a low level, which is customisable. Channels can also be sent presets aside from the preset of the area to which they belong.
Dynalite components communicate using DyNet. End of line termination is required . DyNet 1 is the most commonly used protocol over the bus, being messages of 8 bytes dynaliite data, the 8th byte being a checksum. Data is send at speed of baud8 bits, no parity, 1 stopbit 8N1. Commonly there are two types of message sent via DyNet 1: Logical messages talk to Areas and Channels, and physical messages talk directly to the devices.
These 2 are typically called 1C and 5C messages, on account of the first byte of their message.
An OpCode of 00 to 03 means the action is to send the given area into preset 1 to 4 plus 8 times the value of Data 3 over the time specified by Data 1 and Data 2. An OpCode of 0A to 0D means the action is to send the given area into preset 5 to 8 plus 8 times the value of Data 3 over the time specified by Data 1 and Data 2. DyNet 2 is used mainly to upload data to devices on the network. It allows larger messages of data to be sent at higher speeds baudsignificantly reducing lag time.

Dynaliye device contains its own programmable logic controller and follows the peer-to-peer model, the main advantage of this is that there is no reliance on a single central controller, the system is capable of a high level of resilience and therefore well suited to situations where total failure could be a safety issue, such as lighting systems in public places.
The ‘Message on Change’ system only sends a message every time a lighting state is to change, as opposed to the DMX protocol, which is constantly streaming the entire data-map. This allows for much more devices on a single bus, but also leads to missed messages – as below. As most of the DyNet is openly published, it is possible to integrate with third party devices. The DyNet protocol offers no error correction or transmission control, each network message is sent on a ‘best effort’ basis.
This means that if a transmitted message is corrupted or missed by a receiving device, there is nothing to pick dyalite that the message was not received, but also makes for much faster communication and response to user input in ideal situations. The design opens the possibility of devices missing messages. In the case of a user pushing a button to turn on a light, this does not present philils large problem as the user will probably notice and press the button again, but if it is an automated message say, phhilips a timeclock, there is potential for an important message turning on outside lights of a shopping center to be missed.
The usual workaround for this is to simply send the important message twice or more. The previous Dynalite programming software dLight 2 commonly in use up toand still sometimes used for older equipment was built progressively upon a Windows 3. The Envision editor was launched in and is designed to be dynallite intuitive and easy to use. It is designed for programmers – it is not expected that end users will be able to set up their own systems, one needs training usually free provided by Dynalite distributors.
