As the technological revolution unfolds, we find ourselves with more and more inventions that weren’t thought possible just years ago. One such innovation is advancement in lighting, a key part of home automation. With such advancements, the lighting in a home can be easily modified based on conditions a smart home can monitor – late at night if movement is detected, lights can be dimly lit to avoid disturbing others, and can be turned off when movement is no longer detected.
With low lighting options for during the night alongside energy-saving settings, sleep can be improved through our brains reaction to lower level lighting. This can help maintain a healthy sleeping cycle and make those early mornings a lot easier. With settings such as night mode appearing on nearly all devices we own, lighting providing this same effect can help enhance the production of melatonin, a hormone that helps regulate the bodies sleep cycle.
Saving money on electrical costs is both financially beneficial to you, and environmentally friendly. With this technology you can easily achieve both, thanks to the energy saving this lighting can provide. There’s always the worry of leaving a light on when you’re out of the home, and the cost that might add if done multiple times. Smart lighting removes this worry entirely, by giving you control of the lighting via a smartphone.
Overhead lighting in areas where focus is required can be helpful when staying there for a long period of time, but it can only do so much. Smart lights can help reduce the eye strain and fatigue when you need to focus by allowing preset modes to be applied to lighting – a ‘working’ mode could be set to an office space, where the intensity of light is set to a comfortable level. Thanks to synchronisation with other smart devices, you could also set any screens to a similar brightness, and set a chosen playlist to start.
With most systems fitting into existing installations for lighting, adding smart bulbs to your home is as simple as changing a bulb normally. The only extra step involved during an installation is connecting the device to your phone, or smart hubs allowing you to have the automation and control that this technology provides. The only thing to consider during installation is what the room is for – when configuring the light, you can easily match it to the purpose of the room to match your needs exactly.
A beautifully decorated room isn’t complete without stunning lighting. With this lighting, you can easily add the final touch to a room by installing smart lights with variable colours and tones. Customising the intensity alongside the colour with a variety of options, you can quickly create a complimentary atmosphere, and adjust it at any time from your phone, as outlined in CNET’s article on the matter.
Innovations like these bring us one step further to a truly smart home, and are available at consumer prices today. One such distributor is Kinoav – their leading smart lighting solutions can be customised for any location with their hassle-free installations.
