A few years back not many people would have thought that doing something like controlling lights in your house by using just your voice would ever be possible. But technology has advanced so rapidly that we are now living in an era where doing all of this is easily possible. There are many such innovative products available in the market today and that too at affordable costs. This blog explains what smart lighting is and how you can make the best use of it.
Smart lighting is an advanced technology which is a convenient way to light up your home, or any space for that matter. You can control the lights with the help of your smartphone. Switching a bulb on and off is not just something that you can do with your smartphone. You can change the colour of the lights or dim them if you want to, all with just a tap. And there’s more. Some smart lighting equipment does not even require a tap. They have special motion sensors. With the help of these sensors, the lights can operate depending on the preset commands
Smart lighting not just works via your smartphone apps but can also work with smart systems like Apple HomePod, Google Home and Amazon Echo. You could say something like, “Turn the lights off”, and it would be done. There is another great feature that comes with smart lights. You can preset a fixed schedule according to which your lights will be turned on and off. This feature can help you to wake up in the morning or can serve as a reminder call for going to bed!
Not just this, you can control the lights even when you are not in the vicinity of the lights. For example, if you are out on a vacation and you suddenly think that you left without turning your lights off, there’s no need to panic. You can control the lights and bulbs if they are enabled with an away from home mode.
Even though explaining the entire process of how the whole smart lighting system works would be difficult, we can crudely put it as follows. Something like a mesh network is the backbone of the system. The different lights are connected to one another by a mesh network. And this network is connected to your router enabling your smart devices to communicate with the lights.
Smart bulbs are Light Emitting Diode (LED) bulbs. Being LED bulbs they consume lesser power than what the other kinds such as incandescent bulbs do. Thus, smart lighting is economical along with being user-friendly. Although some of the smart lighting systems are a bit costly, there are other cheaper options available in the market. However, it is important to make sure that you buy smart lighting systems from reputed sellers only. There is no point in buying a cheaper variant and then having to change it later and letting that money go to waste. Pongo Technologies Pvt.
