Detects when the light changes around your android device, using the built-in light sensor. The light sensor is a piece of hardware that is present in most modern smartphone. It is usually used to adapt your screen brightness. You can use it with the Screen Off plug-in to automatically turn your screen off when putting your device in your pocket, or when you put it face down on your desktop. This helps saving battery life.
This plug-in is highly customizable:
-choose your light intensity value in a set of 8 predefined ones like full night, .. or sun day
-display the current light level
-choose a custom light intensity value
-choose the threshold to be “below” or “above”
-set up the minimum duration of the condition that will trigger the event
Google Play shows this app only to users who have a light sensor in their device. (If you are allowed to buy this app, then you have a light sensor.)
