Lighting Guide for Smart Homes
Designing a smart home lighting automation is much more than the usual interior design considerations. You can do so much from smart fans to smart dimmers and smart hubs to elegant architecture to lift your home IQ. Whether it is Google Home, Amazon Alexa, or Apple Home Kit, it is independent of any proprietary app that works best for your smart home needs.
Linked lighting or lighting control is one of the first devices most homeowners invest in when outfitting a smart house. It is the power to monitor your home’s lighting system by tapping a button or just saying a command.
With smart home lighting automation, you get the lighting control of your home at your fingertips:
- You can switch on your landscape lighting to greet you on your way home
- Regulate the temperature of your home
- Automate the lights to light up slowly every morning to wake you up
- Play your favorite music in multiple rooms
- Set up mood profiles for various events—such as house cleaning, dinner, and movie nights
It means you can regulate most smart home households without even swiping a finger, thanks to the intelligent voice assistants. Here are ways to make your home lighting smart:
Use Dimmers & Smart Switches:
Replacing the original switches and dimmers with Wi-Fi connected smart switches and dimmers is an easy way to transform existing hard-wired lights and fans into smart lights and fans. With smart controls in place, the lights will continue to work as they have in the past; only now you can control them from anywhere in the room—or anywhere in the world, depending on the signal power.
Lights With Occupancy Sensing:
The ability of smart lights to save energy and time is dependent on their motion-detection. Lights glow on as someone enters a room and switch off as they left the room. It controls the outdoor lights in a similar manner. You can configure these lights to experience activity at certain times of the day or make them adjusted to your timetable
Pairing With The Bluetooth:
Often a cordless and compact lighting feature that moves with you, indoors and outdoors, controls the lighting system with your tablet or Smartphone. Home lighting automation pairs to your Smartphone or tablet using Bluetooth, and it can be operated on the go without the wi-fi link that your smart devices need to run correctly.
Use Smart Fans:
You can call a smart fan a standalone device in your smart home lighting automation. These smart fans get activated using a voice assistant, allow you to control temperature, and sync with the smart thermostat.
Get Control of Your Smart Home:
Getting the lighting control of your smart home can be achieved with smartphones, laptops, in-wall sensors, and, most recently, voice assistants. When you choose an overarching framework, you should choose from one of the three major ones: Google, Amazon, or Apple. All three of these are perfect if you have several gadgets and you’re used to having a voice-activated assistant.
