1. A method for adaptive lighting, comprising:

  • at a computer system having one or more processors and memory storing programs for execution by the one or more processors;

    identifying a lighting map that identifies, for each of a plurality of lighting devices in a home environment;

    one or more lighting characteristics controllable via one or more networks of the home environment; and

    the location of the lighting device in the home environment,wherein the plurality of lighting devices comprises a conventional lighting device and one or more non-conventional lighting devices, each of the non-conventional lighting devices having a controllably illuminated display screen and/or status light;

    obtaining context information for the home environment from a plurality of smart devices via the one or more networks, wherein the context information includes (i) a current location of a user in the home environment;

    (ii) the time of day;

    (iii) (iii) the current movement of the user and (iv) one or more indications of;

    a sound proximate to a current location of the user, an ambient light level proximate to the current location of the user, a calendar event of the user, a device interaction by the user, and a web interaction by the user;

    inferring a user task and lighting needs associated with the user task based on the contextual information;

    determining, using the lighting map, a first subset of the identified lighting devices located proximate to the current location of the user and according to a predicted path of the user to meet the lighting needs associated with the inferred user task based at least on the current location of the user, the current movement of the user, and the location of the lighting devices in the home environment, wherein the first subset of the lighting devices comprises at least a first one of the non-conventional lighting devices; and

    controlling, via the one or more networks, the lighting characteristics of the first subset of the lighting devices, including at least a screen and/or status lights of the first non-conventional lighting device, to meet the lighting demand.
