The Device

There are two devices: a home device at the home device and a distant device at a relative's home.  The home device consists of a 100 mA warm LED and  photoreceptor that is connected to the relative device.  Each device is powered by a battery pack to provide mobility.  The change of day in each location triggers the other location to adjust as a glanceable notification.
