Smart Lighting Ideas To Personalize Your Home
Smart Recessed Lighting
Recessed lighting has become one of the trendiest ways to light your home, but with smart lights, you can take things even further and give your home a lighting system that's personalized and perfect. If you already have recessed fixtures, it's as easy as picking up some smart bulbs. But even if you don't, there are many ways to customize your home's smart lighting.
How can we use smart lighting?
The possibilities are limitless. One popular way to customize your home's lighting is to use smart bulbs in your recessed lighting or existing light fixtures (including table lamps), but they're far from the only solution. A recent article in the New York Times suggested a variety of ways you can light your home. You can try smart strip lights or hanging smart filament bulbs just to start.
How can we get the smart lighting tools we need?
Upgrading your home to smart lighting is surprisingly easy and affordable, no matter what kind of existing fixtures you have. As smart homes become more common, technology has become accessible and affordable. Most smart lights and smart bulbs are controllable through your home's Wi-Fi, which you can control through Google Home, Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, or Echo.
Create scenery to match Your Artwork
If you're looking to transform your home, there are many novel ways to use smart lighting to help you do that. Here's an example: if you have some hanging wall art that you like, try attaching lighting strips behind the art to make it look like the frame is glowing. This is called accent lighting because it accentuates the artwork without overpowering it.
Use mood lighting in your office to help you to focus
Your lighting needs will vary depending on the room in the house. If you're setting up a home office, you want LED lighting that helps you focus on work. You need task-based lighting for this, meaning desk lamps. But, even these can use smart LED bulbs, which can be dimmed via the smart hub on your phone to help you concentrate when you're in the zone.
Make Automation Possible
Smart lights are easy to control via the apps they come pre-programmed with. All you need to do is download them on your phone, and you'll be able to control your lights remotely. Even better, you can fully automate the lights so that they turn on and off on a specific schedule. Never come back to a dark home again!

LED Strip Lights
If you want to start small, consider LED strip lights. These are affordable and easy to use. They're adhesive strips covered with LED lights that have all the features of a smart bulb and are incredibly versatile.
Where can we use them?
In addition to using them as accent lighting for your wall art, you can also place LED light strips under your bed. If you get up in the evening to use the bathroom but only want enough light to get out of bed and not wake you up fully, LED light strips are a great option as they come with built-in motion sensors.
How can we do this?
Installing LED strip lights is a piece of cake. When you buy them, they come with everything you need, including a power supply. You can even attach strips to give you a much longer strip to work with.
Create Special Backlighting Effects
If you use video at all for work, you can use LED strip lights to create some novel backlit effects to make your videos pop. Thanks to the motion sensors, they're a favorite amongst TikTok users, particularly in dance videos.
Create BIAS LIGHTING FOR TV
LED strip lights are perfect if you like just a little bit of extra light when watching TV. You can attach them to the back of your TV to get a pleasing light you can adjust to make your viewing experience top-notch. These are a must for your home theater, especially if your TV is wall mounted.

LED Light Bulbs
LED light bulbs have become the standard thanks to how long they last and how little energy they consume. They're also safe. With LED Smart bulbs, you can make your lighting even better. Just screw a smart bulb into an existing light fixture, and POOF - you have a smart home. You can choose from millions of colors and revolutionize your home's appearance.
Where can we use them?
Smart light bulbs can be used anywhere in the home, but how much light you need depends on the location. In the bathroom, you'll need to give yourself enough light to get organized, but in the bedroom or living room, you might want softer, more mood-enhancing light. With a smart bulb, either of those options is as easy as the click of a button.
How can we install them?
LED smart bulbs are easy to install. They're plug and play, meaning you screw them in, and that's about it. Next, all you have to do is pair them with your home Wi-Fi and set them up to be controlled by whatever smart hub you use.
Color Matching with the Tone of the room
One thing to keep in mind is that your lighting needs will vary from room to room. That's the beauty of smart lighting. It doesn't have to be uniform. You can adjust the lighting temperature from warm to cool in a way that looks good aesthetically and leaves you in a good mood.
Create Different Scenery with the click of a button
You can use smart lighting outside. Consider installing smart lights in your garden or backyard patio. Your evenings with friends and family will be better than ever. You can even set up motion sensors to keep your family safe at all times.
Smart panel lights
Another new trend is smart panel lighting. If you want the lights to look like art, smart panels you can put on your wall can make some intriguing shapes and display - your friends will be jealous when they visit you. The possibilities are limitless.
