    Accurate and power efficient determination of luminaires dimming level is a challenging issue in smart indoor lighting systems, since the lighting system is nonlinear and time variant. In this paper, a smart and power efficient control method is developed in order to determine luminaires dimming level in an indoor environment with multiple work zones. A positive point of the proposed control method is that photodetectors are placed at the work zones which increase the accuracy. Besides, different number of photodetectors can be placed at work zones in the proposed control method, since work zones may have different dimensions and also accuracy levels may differ. The control method takes the advantages of learning method to avoid complexity and also increase system reliability. The system can properly work with daylight variation during the daytime. Case studies are implemented in DIALux and the control method is evaluated in MATLAB. It is shown that the error for static condition is below 1% and for dynamic condition which daylight varies during daytime is increases to 5.6%.
