With LED technology improving rapidly, I’ve had an idea that I believe should be possible with a little custom programming but I’d love some help brainstorming the project outline.
Goal: Automatically adjust the brightness and color temperature of recessed ceiling lighting to exactly match outside conditions, simulating the effect of a skylight.
A product like this http://www.homedepot.com/p/Commercial-Electric-5-and-6-in-Recessed-Smart-LED-Downlight-53166161/206029900 should be able to accommodate what i’m trying to achieve.
How do I measure current outdoor light temperature and brightness to feed into the system?
What lights would be best suited for this task?
What system (webcore?) would be best to set this automation up in?
Any/all help is appreciated, thank you!
