1. A luminaire network, comprising a plurality of luminaires comprising a lighting apparatus, wherein each of at least two luminaires of the plurality of the luminaires comprises:
a communication unit configured to enable communication of data to and from communication units of other luminaires in the plurality of luminaires or to a central unit;
a processing unit;
a control unit configured to control the lighting apparatus as well as the communication and processing units; and
at least one first sensor, configured to output first sensed data,
wherein the processing unit is configured to process the first sensed data to produce first processed data,
wherein the luminaire network is further configured such that the first processed data of said at least two luminaires is further processed to produce second processed data, and
wherein an indication of quality of at least one of the first sensed data and the first processed data is taken into account to produce the second processed data.
