Background

Get Luminance has been developed to improve safety and amenity in our built environment.  The idea for a new approach to this age-old problem came whilst moving house.  Extensive research on various technologies was followed by proof-of-concept testing of several algorithms, evolving into a prototype App.  In its current form, Get Luminance is a minimum viable product and we will add features and make improvements as we receive feedback.  This project is entirely self-funded on a minimal budget.
