How does MESH Brightness work?

MESH Brightness is a light sensor that detects ambient light. You can use it to trigger all kinds of actions when light is detected in a certain range or even when there are changes in the brightness of ambient light.

For instance, an everyday box can be transformed into a smart box that speaks a greeting each time it's opened. Just place a MESH Brightness in a box and set it to "Detect Openness," which will trigger the audio greeting to play every time the box is opened.

Tips

  • MESH Brightness can also be used to detect proximity and sense things nearby. However, because MESH Brightness uses infrared rays it may not be able to detect certain things depending on their position, direction or nature.
