Calise grabs frames from a camera, returns "correct" screen backlight steps associated with them, and sets those values. It can be run with or without the Xorg environment, and on X comes with a pretty (optional) GUI.

|Implementation||Python 2.6 and above|
Release Notes: This is mostly a bugfix release, but has some good new features, such as the additional value check method that improves (in certain cases by a lot) program precision. On the other hand, because of that, re-calibration will be needed for most users.
Release Notes: This release replaces the PyGame camera module with a custom C Python module, removes PyGame, NumPy, and PIL (Python Image Library) dependencies, fixes and enhances usage as root, adds Global fixes and enhancements to calibration passage, fixes the “flickering” error caused by a high number (>20) of backlight steps on the GUI, updates the (non-service) Italian translation, and adds initd and systemd scripts (not tested outside archLinux).
Release Notes: The HTTP server has been replaced by a DBus service implementation. An auto minimum backlight level check feature has been implemented. The “Daemon” section has been replaced with “Service” inside profiles (with backward compatibility). service-epehem's horizon is set from 0 (natural) to -6 (civil). A pm-utils suspend script has been added (not installed through setup.py). Man pages and help errors have mostly been fixed, and the INSTALL and README instructions mostly corrected.
