Claim of US Patent No. 10,462,874

1. A lighting system comprising:a light source operable to emit a source light;
a sensor configured to sense environmental light from an environment; and
a controller coupled to each of the sensor and the light source and configured to analyze the environmental light sensed by the sensor to at least one of detect and generate data relating to a condition of the environment, the data being transmittable in a transmitted data light;
wherein the sensor is configured to sense the presence or absence of a dominant wavelength associated with the environmental light;
wherein the controller is configured to correlate the dominant wavelength with a substance;
wherein the controller is configured to detect a level of the dominant wavelength correlated with the substance; and
wherein the controller is configured to operate the lighting system to generate an alert based upon the detected level of the dominant wavelength.
