Smart lighting systems are growing in popularity and for good reason. Check out these seven reasons why smart lighting outshines their traditional counterparts.
Smart lighting systems are designed to connect to your smartphone. Not home? Mimic your presence by turning them on with a simple tap of your screen from wherever you are. They can be set to come on at scheduled times or randomly and can even connect with other smart devices like security cameras.
Increased Energy Efficiency
Smart lights use CFL or LED bulbs, both of which require less electricity than traditional incandescent bulbs. Less electricity use means a lower energy bill, saving you money.
Most incandescent bulbs have a lifespan of 750 to 2,000 hours. However, LED smart lights can be on continuously for up to 50,000 hours, which will save you money on multiple bulb replacements.
Whether playing a game or snuggling in for a movie, many rooms in your home are often used for multiple purposes. Customize your smart lighting to suit your needs at any given time. Brighter for when you want to focus. Dimmer for when you want to relax.
Set the Mood
Beyond brightening and dimming, lighting can help set the mood for any occasion. Cheering on your favorite team? Set your bulbs to match their colors. Enjoying a romantic evening at home, soft, warm lighting is just the thing. Friends coming over for a party? Set your lights up to switch colors every few minutes.
Kick up your average movie or game nights with smart lights that sync to your home theater, stereo or computer.
Set your smart lights to a turn off at a slow fade to fall asleep more naturally. Set them to turn on the same way for a gentle, natural wake up.
