There exist a lot of alternatives to minimize energy consumption of artificial lighting systems. Wireless sensor networks are a prominent technology to monitor a variety of environments and have plenty of applications in the field of lighting control. Conventional photo sensors have a lot of disadvantages mainly because of their placement on the ceiling and their field of view. This paper reviews the applications of wireless sensor networks in lighting control, describes the drawbacks of the conventional photo sensors and introduces a novel lighting control system, which controls the level of artificial lighting according to daylight penetration and users' preference, using photo sensors on the task area. The sensors are connected through PCs to the local area network using a controller
