Light is a very influential environmental factor in the quality of life and the performance of people. For this reason, it is necessary to create and implement technologies that help maintain healthy environments, in terms of lighting, for users. If we add to this the large amount of electrical energy that is wasted due to bad consumption habits and the use of outdated and inefficient devices, the importance of this work is evident, which proposes the design of a compact and versatile lamp that easily replaces traditional light bulbs with advantages such as an automatic on and off control depending on the movement registered in the room, an automatic control of lighting level to maintain optimal levels at all times and regulation of the light tone according to the room and at the time of day. To achieve the aforementioned, LED technology, a microcontroller and sensors were used, which together with control techniques govern the behavior of the lamp. Several operating parameters were established such as lighting level and tone of the emitted light which were fulfilled within certain operating conditions.
