    The idea is to design smart light switch functioning as a sensor to dial in the optimal light levels in the room.
    The switch will go beyond color-changing, app-enabled bulbs to provide an intuitive lighting-environment. The device's sensor will detect movements, noise, the time of day and the room's ambient light levels, and then automatically adjust the lighting to suit the needs of the moment. Bedtime will trigger the lights to slowly dim, setting a relaxing mood, while middle-of-the-night motion will cause a gentle nightlight to come on.
    Each system will control an entire room, regardless of the number of wall switches in the room, and can work with regular bulbs as well as smart bulbs.
