‘Smart’ is a term used for devices that can be operated and controlled via dedicated apps - all you need is a smartphone or other compatible mobile device. This opens up a lot of new possibilities for customization - you can control each of the lights and set it just right for the moment. We’re not talking about simple remote on/off functions - with LED smart lighting, you have smooth control over the brightness and temperature of all the lights connected to the system and can program them to work automatically. All smart bulbs can be controlled directly (via wireless connection), but to create a true smart home system that can be controlled from anywhere, you will need a central hub. This heart of a smart lighting system is a gateway between the bulbs and the internet - when it connects to the Wi-Fi network, you can control your lights with a tablet, smartphone, or smart home assistant. Thanks to this, you can have full control over your home’s or business’s lighting even if you’re away from it (granted there’s internet connection there). For example, you can set the lights to turn on at a specific time of day, so it will appear that you’re at home when you’re really on holiday - this can discourage potential burglars.
When paired with a home assistant (e.g., Google Home, Amazon’s Alexa, or Apple’s Alexa), it can be voice-controlled, which is a great option for turning off all the lights before going to bed (especially if you have kids, and they notoriously forget to switch off the lights). It’s also excellent for business, as you can adjust the lights without interrupting your work. With a smart lighting system, you won’t need separate mood and ambient lights - with the right settings, you can switch between task and mood lighting on the fly. It also gives you a lot of room for experimenting - you can smoothly change the settings in real-time and thus find just the right light’s parameters for your liking. You won’t get this type of freedom with traditional bulbs or even a lot of standard LED lights. If you’re more of a traditionalist, you can control your smart lights as easily via a dedicated remote or a wall-mounted panel. A fully automatic lighting system is a great way to make life easier - when paired with other smart solutions, it can create a truly self-sufficient home that will take care of the chores and let you enjoy your free time.
