handy for adjusting lighting automatically

not automatically. you will want to use one of the apps to update the time for you when the change occurs.

In the same way off the idea, Can you implement a new module for having the brightness of the room/Aqua?

then we can activate or desactivate our lights if they ar not necessary. (the Sun is enought for example).

I didn't understand what you meant.
Do you mean measuring light intensity of the room?
JClownFish made a DIY module for that along with motion sensor that play Nemo sounds when you pass by :)

I posted this in another unrelated thread, but I'll post it here too:

Daylight Savings is very depended on the region and country you are in.
In USA, the state of Arizona for example doesn't observe DST and if you head out to anywhere outside the USA, they are all different depending on the country you are in. Some countries even observe 1/2 hour DST and even 1/4 hour DST. It's crazy, but they do.
Australia for example has 1/4 hour difference depending on which region you are in.
That's why it is very hard to implement DST and I decide it wasn't worth to do so.
It's so simple to click a button on the smart phone app and you are done.
