I not a light expert, but the light level should 
change when the color scheme of the website 
or app should be updated. 
 
Let's take the GPS Navigation software example.
 
    Dim mode: when the GPS switch to a white 
streets on black map theme. Ideal for tunnels 
and night navigation.
 
    Normal mode: roads are displayed as an 
overlay over a background layer (why not an 
aerial-like map of the surroundings). In the 
'normal' mode, the screen's brightness is 
automatically modified by the OS to 
accommodate small lighting variations.
 
    Bright mode: the background is switched to 
full white, roads are full black and font is made 
bolder to accommodate direct sunlight (glances) 
on the screen. Gradients and some fancy effects 
are removed.
