Title: System and method for controlling the access to a networked control system

Abstract: A system and method for controlling access to a networked control system, such as a lighting control system or a home control system, include devices connected to the same network and assigned to a particular delimited space, a transmitter device which transmits access information for the devices within the delimited space over a range restricted transmission channel differing from the transmission channel(s) of the networked control system which substantially limits the reception of the access information to the delimited space, wherein the access information includes an access identifier for obtaining access for controlling one or more of the devices in the delimited space, and a receiver device which receives the transmitted access information and controls a device assigned to the delimited space over the network by using the access identifier contained in the received access information.
