Random non AppleScript question

So this is not really an AppleScript question, but...

Does anyone here know of a terminal command to decrease your screen brightness intensity?  I frequently remote into my work iMac from home and when I do the screen comes on and activates my security camera.  My camera sees the change in light and thinks it is movement. I have my camera to start emailing me images once it detects movement.  It is a bit annoying. 

I would like a terminal command I can send my iMac to dim my screen via ARD before logging in.  This way my camera no longer freaks out.

Thanks for your time.

Re: Random non AppleScript question

Try my display brightness control AppleScript. It call brightness tool from github in its bundle.

You can download and compile brightness by yourself, too.

I wrote thousands of AppleScript to realize my idea. Natural language interface, voice recognition commander and so on. Though my mother toungue is strange language, Japanese, my most frequently write language is AppleScript. I believe it is for making things easy and powerful.
