Question
Dear Prof Cleggsan

Is it possible to automate smartphone torch operations I.e switched on in darkness and switched off in broad daylight?.

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

Answer
From an engineering point of view it is not difficult so long as it has a light sensor.

I suppose by "torch operation" you mean the main display area?
