While the list of benefits that installing home lighting automation brings is almost endless, there are some additional enhancements you’ll immediately notice. When you install a smart lighting system, you are immediately upgrading the look and feel of your home, and you will feel great knowing you are saving money on energy expenses and keeping your family safe.
Give your home personality
Smart lighting allows you to personalize your home and adjust the lighting to fit any mood or activity. If you are ready to wind down and relax for the day, you can dim your smart lighting to replicate the glow of a setting sun. If you’re feeling inspired or creative, you can adjust your lighting to allow it to feel more energized. Just like your interior decoration, smart lighting is one of the things that can make your home unique and stand out from a crowd, giving your space a feel and a tone it didn’t have before.
Customize it to each family member
Not only will smart lighting look good, but you will also be able to enjoy some of the everyday conveniences. For example, if you have a guest or family member in your home who is more sensitive to light than you are, you can customize the glare of your lighting throughout the house. This allows that person to be in a room where the lighting is to their liking, and if they leave the room and you enter it, you can change the lighting to your preference.
Enjoy natural light in your home
Smart lighting is also great for the functioning of your body. Through a process called circadian rhythm, your body naturally gauges the patterns of light and regulates itself so that you know when to eat, sleep, wake up, and work. Artificial lighting can disrupt this process and be detrimental to your sleep schedule, concentration, memory and overall health. Smart lighting helps restore the balance by mimicking the sun’s light throughout the day. Smart lighting can measure the sun’s natural color temperature throughout the day and adjust the intensity of your lighting as it rises and sets.
Use less energy and save money
Does a family member struggle to remember to turn the lights off in a room when they move to another location in the house? Smart lighting maximizes the efficiency of lighting in your home by turning off lights in rooms that are not being occupied and allowing you to control the lighting in every room in your house. This saves a tremendous amount of energy consumption, and you will see the difference on your electric bill. In that sense, investing in a smart lighting system will pay for itself over the long run with the money you save on electricity.
Feel safe and secure
Aaron’s Home Tech recommends homeowners invest in a state-of-the-art security system to protect their home. If you choose to do so, smart lighting is part of that system. Automatic outdoor lights that turn on and off throughout different times of the day can keep burglars who are looking for patterns from targeting your home. It can also minimize, if not eliminate altogether, accidents that happen in the home at night. Whether getting up to use the restroom or going downstairs for a midnight snack, smart lighting also allows you to move around the house easier at night. This is particularly beneficial if an elderly person lives in your home. With smart lighting, you will sleep soundly knowing the risk of someone tripping and falling in the dark before they can reach the light switch has been eliminated.
