With smart lighting becoming popular among modern homeowners, it’s not surprising that you may be looking to install some in your own home. After all, you’ll have complete control on how you light your home, increasing convenience, all while still being more energy-efficient and having better security.
Having smart light bulbs installed by a professional smart home installation company is also beneficial as it becomes your first step into the Internet of Things (IoT), which can make your home life much easier.
How Smart Light Bulbs Work
These types of light bulbs are long-lasting light-emitting diode (LED) light bulbs that can be controlled and customized remotely through voice-controlled or smart technology. What makes them smart lighting is how they’re connected to another smart-home assistant, which can be Alexa or Google Assistant to name a few. Smart light bulbs can even be controlled using smart-home routines through smart assistants, and this is done when smart light bulbs communicate with other smart devices in your network, such as entertainment systems and appliances.
Smart light bulbs can be connected through Wi-Fi or via networking with another Bluetooth® device. They can be turned on and off automatically using either voice control or smart-home routines. They can also be controlled remotely through smartphone apps, which means there’s no need to use a light switch anymore as you can practically turn every light in your home on or off through your phone.
The Benefits You’ll Get From Smart Lighting
One of the best reasons why homeowners have smart lights installed is that they are more energy-efficient. When you’re using smart LED lights with dimmers, you can control how much light you want. For instance, if you don’t need full brightness from a light bulb, and the dimmer can cut down on energy usage to reduce energy consumption and a lower utility bill.
Some smart lights can also be activated when a sensor detects motion. This is extremely useful for security outside the home as it exposes anyone sneaking around your home late at night. It can also make things easier when guests go to the bathroom down the hall.
