Tie External Monitor's Brightness to OSX's Automatic Brightness

  • Status: Open

Description

I don't know if this is possible, but it would be a nice if you were able to tie the brightness of an external monitor to the automatic brightness adjustment of the built-in LCD on a MacBook Pro or similar.

That way, if the brightness levels of the two monitors were roughly matched, and light conditions changed, both would respond similarly.

Thanks for the app either way! It's handy!

This would be super-helpful, if it would just detect a change in brightness on the normal macbook air screen, then adjust the secondary display along with that change. Since then it would be utilizing the built in capacity of the Apple's light sensing mechanism.
