They automatically adjust display brightness on many devices by sensing changes to your environment like lights on or off, how close a device is to you and more.

Features and benefits:

  • Operate well in a variety of sources (from natural sunlight to fluorescent)
  • Automatic adjustments based on environment analysis

  • Audio visual equipment
  • Home appliances
  • Laptops
  • Mobile phones
