1. First Things First
You did it! You finally took the jump into smart home technology, and you started with getting your house equipped with smart lighting.
Well...now what do you do? How do you make the most of this investment? One of the first things you can do is set up all your lights to turn off when you go to bed with a “night” mode. Forget having to go around and turn them all off yourself and make your nightly routine that much easier!
2. Colors of the Wind
Most homes these days rely on white bulbs, but you don’t have to keep limiting yourself to just that plain old boring color any longer.
Many companies now make their own version of smart color changing bulbs, giving you the option to easily control the hue and shade of your home lighting. Have fun with bright colors to liven up the atmosphere, or have different hues set for different times of the day. It’s your world, and now you can light it up however you want!
3. Weather the Weather
What if your lights could tell you if it was going to rain? Or if it was going to be super hot outside?
Well, they can. With a simple IFTTT working with your smart bulbs, you can have them change to blue if rain is coming, or red/orange if hot weather is on its way. It’s another little way that smart tech can help save you time, worry, and mindspace!
4. All Officially Office-Like
If you have a home office, you know the importance of keeping your home and work life separate … or at least trying as hard as possible to keep them separate.
With a smart light routine, this can be easier than ever. Simply select your “work” setting, and all your lights will adjust to your prefered setting to keep yourself as comfortable -- and productive -- as you can throughout the day.
5. Home is where the art is
Displaying art can be tricky -- you don’t want to shine too much light on it and ruin it, but you also want everybody who visits to be able to enjoy it! Smart lighting solves this problem -- it doesn’t produce UV rays that can damage paintings.
Smart lighting can also be programmed to bring out the most in your art, or even to change how it looks with different hues of light. This gives all of the artistic people out there quite the new crayon box to pick from when it comes to displaying art.
