How Do Smart Home Light Bulbs Compare to Traditional Lights?
Home automation was once seen as something attainable only by The Jetsons, but now it's a pretty standard component in homes. Automation means that some elements in your home, such as thermostats, locks, or appliances function automatically.
Thanks to the advancements in smart home technology, we can now do the same with our lighting. As it's a feature in our homes we use every day, it's no surprise that it's one of the most popular home automation products on the market. Feel free to read our previous article about "how smart home automation changes our life".
How Does Smart Lighting Work?
Just like other intelligent home products, smart lighting gives consumers a more efficient way to manage light in their residence. Traditional bulbs can be replaced with smart light bulbs that fit into your existing fixtures. When paired with WiFi, you'll be able to control your lights from wherever you are from an app. With smart lighting, there is a multitude of benefits, such as:
- Having the ability to turn off and on lights remotely
- Greater control over the brightness of your rooms without the need of dimmers
- Creating lighting schedules based on your lifestyle
Why should I add smart lighting to my home?
While there are a lot of fun features that come with smart lighting, there's no denying that installing them will simplify and enhance the quality of your life. Here are just a few examples:
1) Smart Bulbs Are Convenient
Having the ability to see which lights are on in your home, and shutting them off with the tap of a button on your smartphone is life-changing. Imagine all of the time you'll save not having to make the rounds ensuring all of the lights are off in your home! It's also a great way to save money throughout the year as you can keep tabs on which fixtures were left on before leaving home. Plus, if you purchase BAZZ Smart Home lighting, you will save even more money throughout the year as all of our products work without the need for a hub. This means that you don't waste extra power on the hub!
2) Smart Bulbs Are Fun
Sure smart lighting will save you time and money - but they're also an entertaining addition to your home too. Depending on the bulbs you install, you will be able to dim the lights, change the mood, or even modify the color of the smart bulb! Whatever you decide to do with them, don't just play with the color wheel within the app and return to the boring life of standard white lighting. It can be great to play up the colors come Valentine's Day or Christmas time!
3) Automate Your Life With Smart Bulbs
Probably one of the best features of smart home lighting is that you can schedule how your lights function around your home based on your lifestyle. Automate your mornings to wake you up with bedroom lights turning on at 7:30 am. Or maybe schedule your lights to dim in the evening to help you wind down gradually. You could also use automation as a deterrent for burglars while you're away by having the lights turn off and on throughout the day or night as if you were still at home.
