Light sensors are electronic devices that indicate the intensity of daylight or artificial light. They convert light energy to an electrical signal output.
Light sensors have several uses in industrial and everyday consumer applications. For example, they can detect the amount of light in a room and raise / lower the blinds or switch on / off the lights automatically to improve the comfort level in a room. They can also be used in order to automatically turn on lights outside or inside a business or a home at night.
Light sensor information can also be provided on assets, delivered by Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) beacons.
