1. A system for managing a plurality of lighting settings, comprising:
a remote switch for selecting a first lighting setting;
a main switch electrically connected to the remote switch, the main switch for adjusting the first lighting setting and for selecting an override lighting setting;
a first driver connected to a main power source and configured to power at least a first portion of a set of luminaires according to the first lighting setting;
a second driver connected to the main power source and configured to power at least a second portion of the set of luminaires according to the override lighting setting; and
a low voltage controller (LVC) electrically connected to the main switch, the remote switch via the main switch, the first driver, and the second driver, the LVC including a processor, wherein the processor is configured to:
receive an initial selection of the first lighting setting from the remote switch,
responsive to receiving the initial selection:
cause the first driver to power at least the first portion of the set of luminaires according to the first lighting setting,
receive an override selection of the override lighting setting from the main switch, and
