1. A remote control device for use with a lighting control device that is configured to control light intensity, the remote control device comprising:a user interface that is configured to receive an input that is indicative of a desired light intensity;
a light detector that is configured to perform a measurement of an ambient light intensity at the remote control device in response to receipt of the input;
a wireless communication circuit; and
a control circuit that is configured to cause the wireless communication circuit to transmit a message to the lighting control device based on the measurement of the ambient light intensity and on a location of the remote control device, wherein the message causes the ambient light intensity at the remote control device to be adjusted towards the desired light intensity.
