An ancillary thought for far too long, illumination has rightfully come into it’s own in recent years thanks to advancements in bulbs, WiFi and Bluetooth technology. The ability to control your surroundings so simply, certainly has mass appeal. However, the functionality that becomes available when properly integrated to a smart home has wider ranging benefits than one might assume.
Take vacation mode for example. This nifty setting ceases all lights from burning within the home, saving you money. You also have the ability to turn lights on/off at certain times. Say, the foyer, or a bedroom to give off the impression someone’s home. Another great feature is the blue light filter. Considering 95% of Americans use an electronic device within one hour of trying to sleep, and we all know that the emitted blue light of these devices tricks our body into believing it’s daytime, you may sleep better as a result! Sick of the wall color? Try it in a different light. Soon you’ll be singing the praises of smart lighting too.
