This paper describes how we design a lighting control sys- tem including hardware and software. Hardware includes Dimmer with relays Bulb light sensing circuit, control circuit, and 8255 expanding I/O circuit, PC, and bulb. Sensing circuit uses photo-resistance component to sense the environmental light and then transmit the signal of the lightness to the computer through an 8-bit A/D converter 0804. The control circuit applies reed relay in digital control way to adjust the variable resistor value of the traditional dimmer.
