1. A method of using a lighting control system for temperature control comprising:
detecting temperature readings from a temperature sensor included in each of a plurality of light control modules, wherein each light control module is configured to cause a transmission of a quantity of electrical energy to a lighting circuit of a light fixture electrically connected to the light control module;
grouping one or more temperature sensors of the lighting control modules into a first group corresponding to an interior wall based on the temperature readings being within a pre-determined range of one another; and
controlling at least one of a heater and an air conditioning system to adjust one of heating and cooling by the one of the heater and the air conditioning system based on the temperature readings of the first group of temperature sensors.
