A control apparatus includes a power supply for providing appropriate current and voltage to modules of the control apparatus. A user interface microprocessor module provides the necessary architecture to handle user inputs as well as programmable control logic. Furthermore, there is a communications microprocessor module initiating data traffic signals among all control apparatus modules through a wireless transceiver module. Finally, a remote control node module through a transceiver interprets and acts upon wireless traffic signals to control an operation.

A method of operating a control apparatus where the user operates the apparatus by energizing a power supply for providing appropriate current and voltage to modules of the control apparatus. The user interacts with a user interface microprocessor module that provides the necessary architecture to handle user inputs as well as programmable control logic. The user interface microprocessors begins commanding a communications microprocessor module that provides data traffic signals among the control apparatus modules. Two or more transceivers, one at the remote control node(s) exchange wireless data traffic signals to control an operation.
