Smart technology has permeated our daily lives, domestic contexts and generally any transition between work, living and leisure imaginable. When such technology is integrated in living and practices of living, we encounter different forms of automation and sharing of tasks between the machine and humans. While we often strive for high degrees of automation in everyday chores, errands and periodic adjustments, the loss of control and being oblivious to how automation actually behaves in our personal spaces presents difficulties. This poster outlines a research project on enhancing a smart automation system  with means to communicate about its internal dynamics and working principles using abstract light patterns that are created by distributed small lights in the context.
