Lunar

Version 5.2.3

Intelligent adaptive brightness for your external display.

Lunar overview

Lunar controls the same brightness that you can change by using the monitor's physical buttons.

  • Sensor-based Adaptive Brightness (and contrast) based on an external light sensor
  • Sync-based Adaptive Brightness (and contrast) based on the built-in light sensor of the Macbook or iMac
  • Location-based Adaptive Brightness (and contrast) based on the sunrise/sunset times in your location
  • App Exception list if you need more brightness for specific activities (watching movies, design work)
  • Individual settings per display
  • Manual controls and hotkeys for setting brightness and contrast that respect the min/max values per monitor

It doesn't interfere at all with the native adaptive brightness that macOS implements for the built-in display

It works well along Night Shift and True Tone (and f.lux if Gamma/Software controls are not used)

What’s new in version 5.2.3

Updated on Jan 19 2022

Note: if you have a monitor connected to the HDMI port of the 2021 MacBook, disable DDC manually for that monitor.

Fixes:
  • Make sure that monitors with Network Control disabled don't get matched with a Pi controller
  • Remove the Lunar Test flashing text properly after onboarding

For the first time, I can control the external monitor on my Mac M1 Mini. Awesome, and thanks for the great software!

Well, I can now control my external monitor (LG 4K HDR) brightness with my Apple keyboard using DDC (USB-C to Display Port cable from M1 Mac mini). Excellent work by all involved!
