Smart lights are the perfect introduction to the wonderful world of smart home technology. They’re simple to set up, easy to use, and make your home more productive and more fun at the same time. Plus, they’re not too expensive.
If you don’t want a full-blown smart home, smart lights are a great introduction to how technology can improve your quality of life. There are multiple different types of smart lights, so you’ll have to decide between traditional bulbs, smart switches, ambient string lights, and more. Most people go the smart bulb route, but you’ll be happy you did no matter which smart lights you buy.
Include Smart Lights in Morning and Evening Routines
One of the best features of smart lights is easily the ability to set them to turn on automatically. By setting a specific schedule for your smart lights, you can use them to make your morning and night routines more efficient. Most smart lights typically come with a companion mobile app that lets you control the lights from your phone and even set timers for them.
Being able to set a time for your lights to come on and a time for them to shut off is a game changer. Well, at least for people who hate mornings. If you’re someone who hits snooze a million times (and sometimes in your sleep), having your lights turn on automatically in the morning will help you wake up and stay up.
Smart lights are also helpful in the evenings, especially for those who tend to stay up too late. By creating an evening routine that involves your smart lights either dimming or completely turning off, you’ll know what time it is and start winding down for the night.
Save Money on Your Electric Bill
