What Are The Advantages Of Using Smart Lights At Home

What could be easier than adjusting the lighting in your home using smart lights to change the mood and feel of the space? With so many people working from home these days, changing a bright work light into a less clinical feeling in the evening and creating a more cosy environment can be invaluable.

Switching to using smart lights in your home makes a lot of sense. It is easy to swap out your existing incandescent bulbs for smart light bulbs that you can control through an app on your smartphone.

You can brighten, soften and switch your lights on and off without needing to move from your seat or go to a wall light socket.

Smart lighting solutions are available in many makes and models and vary in cost such as our Lutron lighting products. You can get relatively inexpensive smart light bulbs that offer a simple, smart lighting solution, or you can choose more flexible lighting systems that provide more in the way of mood lighting throughout your home.

What makes a smart bulb different?

Standard incandescent light bulbs are measured in watts, but the brightness of LED bulbs is measured in lumens. LED smart bulbs are far more power-efficient than standard light bulbs, so they can be a good choice if you want to reduce your household electricity consumption.

Smart light bulbs are suitable for use wherever regular bulbs are used. So you can replace your existing bulbs in table and floor lamps, ceiling pendants, light bars, and indoor and outdoor wall lights.

Unlike standard light bulbs, you have complete control of the brightness and light levels that the smart bulbs emit. So if you want to dim the lights in the evening to enjoy a blockbuster movie with the family, you can remotely adjust the light level until it creates the perfect atmosphere.

Smart lighting systems are great for home security, too, because you can control them when you are close by or while you are out of the house. You can make your home look occupied by switching your lights on while you are elsewhere to help deter potential burglars.

Flexible and versatile smart lighting options

There is no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to smart lighting systems at home. Smart lights are so flexible and versatile that every homeowner can have a smart lighting system perfectly tailored to suit their smart home needs.

This is especially pleasing when you have a busy family at home that needs different lighting levels throughout the day and evening. You can have bright lights shining in the dining room for a child who needs to do their homework and more subdued lighting for another child who is busy gaming in their bedroom.

You can run smart light bulbs from your mobile phone, or you can replace your standard wall light switches with smart switches to control the lighting in any room, and you can use standard iridescent light bulbs with smart light switches.

There are so many options open to you that it makes sense to chat with our friendly team at JVB Solutions to discuss your needs. We can work out the best plan to utilise smart lighting in your home to benefit everyone in your family.
