Are you kids scared of the dark? Do you spend a lot of time and effort setting up lights for your kids so that it is the perfect ambience for them to get to sleep? With this Arduino-Controlled Night Light from Andre you can very easily automate this process and never have to worry about setting a night light ever again. The project is very simple and uses an Arduino and a photodiode to automatically turn on a night light when it gets dark. You could very easily get all the parts to make this project in a quick (and cheap) trip to your local electronics store! Furthermore, you can easily customise this project to suit your exact needs. Although it is a very basic project, from a home automation perspective, it is sometimes the very basic projects that can provide the greatest benefit.
