Smart lighting may be a new concept for you. And we promise it’s more than just a fancy way to control the lighting in your home. It actually helps simplify and improve quality of life. Have a look:
Smart Lighting is Convenient
Think about the lights in your home, the number of relating light switches, and the amount of time you spend every day, especially at night & making the rounds in your home to make sure they’re off. With smart lighting those days are finished.
Home Security with Smart Lights
Smart lighting can also serve as home security. Link switches, bulbs, and smart plugs to any motion sensors/detectors you have around the house, that could be a smart thermostat, camera, or stand alone motion sensor.
Set the lights to activate with motion or sound as the trigger. Ideally on the off chance that somebody is sneaking around outside (or more terrible, breaks in) and the lights turn on, it’s sufficient to make thieves think twice.
However, having the lights turn on and off randomly in a way that makes it look as though someone is truly at home. Smart light switches can do this automatically.
Smart Lights for Ambiance & Set the Scene
Set the mood in any room with smart lighting features like dimming and color ambiance
Smart lighting can help your home environment adapt to each and every one of your activities like watching movies, daytime or nighttime reading, connect with friends and family, celebrate dinner parties, etc.
Within a scene, which is programmable in your smart bulb’s app. you can adjust brightness, color temperature and even different hues. When you’ve changed a room’s lights perfectly, save those settings as a scene with a unique label. Once your scene is set up, you’re only an app tap away from your favorite mood lighting.
Schedule Your Lights
Any lighting system marked as smart should be able to operate on a schedule.
To schedule your lights, first look to the Authorized Apps for your specific hardware. Whether that’s a wall switch, smart plugs, or light bulbs.
Within the application, look for scheduling options for your device. There you can choose to have lights turn on (and off) at specific times.
If there’s a choice for sunrise and sunset timing, you have to use that. It’s a lot easier than choosing specific hours of the day, or confirming exact times. And don’t forget to select options for your exact location, along with daylight saving data. It’ll save you from having to manually adjust the schedule as daylight hours shorten and lengthen throughout the year.
Group Lights for Greater Control
An effective way to use smart lights is to group them together by room or zone. For example, you can schedule all of the lights in your basement go dark after midnight. Or, after 1 a.m. make every light on the main level to dim to 20 percent brightness. So You get the idea.
You can do this two ways; using the app for your bulbs or switches, or using a smart speaker. Then, you can schedule the entire room or group to turn on or off at a specific time.
It’s Time to Make the “Switch”
The effect that smart lighting can have on your home and way of life is so far reaching and significant, it’s hard to justify using old-fashioned lights.
