Lighting Your Home the SMART Way

With various smart LED lighting systems to choose from and a wide range of benefits available, there is no shortage of reasons to light your home the smart way. If you have yet to make the change, every day provides another opportunity to do just that. Let’s take a closer look at the advantages that homeowners can enjoy and how they can get the most out of these lighting systems going forward, shall we?

Benefits of Smart LED Lighting

The convenience that this lighting provides is off the charts. You are able to light the entire home in an instant, saving a great deal of time and effort in the process. Instead of flipping every switch manually, you can simply snap your fingers and watch as all of the lights come on. You are able to stay in bed and enjoy all of the ease of access to your smart lighting. These systems are also very easy to customise.

There are numerous colour schemes to choose from and you can even sync the lighting up with your entertainment choices. Last but certainly not least, the energy efficiency that this lighting provides is certainly noteworthy. LED lighting will allow the homeowner to conserve energy anyway but once we are able to automate lighting and control it remotely?

Utility bills are going to drop sharply. With smart lighting, the home is only lit at the times and places where it is actually needed. As an added bonus, smart lighting works with a number of different systems. Whether you have WiFi or Bluetooth systems in your home, all of the aforementioned benefits are available to you.

Smart Lighting Control Options

The sheer number of control options makes LED smart lighting a great addition to any home. While you can certainly choose a smart switch, this option’s convenience pales in comparison to the ease of use that WiFi or Bluetooth systems have to offer. Having the ability to control your home’s lighting from an app on your mobile phone is unrivalled. All of these options are easy to use and provide the desired level of control.

There are also voice-controlled assistants that can be used, as well as fully integrated systems. They are centralised and wired, serving as a reliable option for Australian homeowners. Voice control assistants are integrated into the system, providing the best of both worlds. These types of voice-activated systems are great when you are cooking or handling a load of laundry plus they provide valuable assistance to the elderly.

Energy Efficiency and Cost Savings

Smart lighting uses far less electricity and the cost savings for an Australian homeowner are hard to ignore. When you replace your older lighting setup with LED smart lighting, you are already using 75% less energy than you did before. Less electricity is used in the process of converting to smart lighting, making this decision an easy one for any homeowner that is currently looking to cut down on all of their monthly costs.

Customisation and Mood Setting

The sheer amount of customization that LED smart lighting has to offer is well worth discussing. No matter what time of day it may be, you are able to find the colour scheme and level of brightness that aligns with your mood. This pales in comparison to more traditional options, which are more static and do not provide the same chance for adjustment. Setting the scene with your preferred colour has never been easier and the versatility is off the charts.
