Lighting an FBX import

I am importing an FBX model into Revizto (our Revit runs on a shared server, so the export tools don't work on it).  Is there anyway to activate lights in the model, or at least get some general interior lighting of the room?  (the room has no windows).   When I open in the viewer, the model is rather dark.

Hello,

Can you see any lights in the Editor ("lights" toolbar button)? If yes, you should bake light map in order to see lighting in the Viewer. If no, there must be a problem in the import.

No lights are shown in the light tool bar, even though there are a number of lighting fixtures in the room model.  Is there something I need to do to the light family while in Revit before I export the FBX file so that the Revizto editor recognizes them as lights?
