Smart Home_7.28.15

Did you know that lighting can affect your mood? Just the right amount of light or color can create an ambiance that transforms a space. Now in the age of “There’s an app for that”, well there’s an app for this! With the combination of LED light and intuitive technology, personal wireless lighting is at your fingertips, literally.

Benefits of Wireless Controlled Lighting:

  1. Personalization: LED light bulbs deliver clear, crisp light with all shades of white and every color in the spectrum. You can set the mood and save your settings for that optimal hue. Alarms, timers and alerts are other ways that personalize your home environment. Program your lights for relaxation, concentration or energizing. They even fit into your current light fittings.
  2. Control Remotely: You don’t have to be at home to control your lights. With your app you can change colors, brightness and functions anywhere in the world from the palm of your hand.
  3. Reduce Energy Cost: Traditional mechanical wired lighting systems offer users few cost effective options in managing usage and controlling lighting expense. In contrast, wireless-controlled lighting allows homeowners to tune lighting usage to more accurately fit lighting area and time-of-day requirements while simplifying maintenance and administration of large lighting systems.
  4. Security & Safety: Going to be out later than you thought? Going on vacation? Your security is in your hands. You can set alarms so your lights come on automatically. Setting different rooms to light up at different times gives the appearance that someone is home. You can even set your lights to turn on the moment you walk up to your front door.
