Using smart lighting in your home can have many positive benefits for you that you may have not realized yet. Smart lights allow you to control the lighting throughout your home with simply a tap of a button or the utterance of a phrase. There are numerous benefits to using smart lighting throughout your home.

Sleep Cycle Regulation

When our bodies are exposed to lower light levels, our brains release melatonin. Melatonin is a hormone that aids us in sleep cycle regulation. When you are exposed to harsh, bright lights in the evening hours – right before bed – this disrupts your body’s natural production of melatonin. Using smart lighting, you can set your light bulbs to switch to warm hues in the evening time and gradually dim as the evening turns into night. This will help your body produce melatonin on a regular, more natural routine. If you’re trying to get up in the morning, you can set the lights to mimic the gradual increase of light of sunshine so that you are more awake and ready to face the day.

Mood lighting

In addition to using light as a way to improve your sleep cycle, smart lighting can also be used to improve your mood. In particular, it is possible to fight Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), improving your emotional well-being through the use of smart lighting. For instance, in gloomy and dark weather, you can adjust your lighting to be warm and bright. In addition to brightness and color temperature, many smart lighting systems allow for color changes as well. You can easily give a room a new ambience by using a different color or hue of lighting.

utility bill savings

Smart lighting systems can save you money on your utility bill by utilizing motion sensors. Motion sensors are especially helpful in main walkways throughout your home like the hallway or stairs. No more walking throughout your home and switching lights off – smart lighting takes care of everything for you! Additionally, installing smart lights in your home eliminates any worry about leaving lights on when you’re gone from your home.

ENHANCED SECURITY

We all know the tried and true method of leaving the lights on when you’re gone as a deterrent against possible burglars. Unfortunately, this can result in a skyrocketing utility bill that is scarier than any burglar. Also, there is a wastefulness to this because your lights remain on all day, not just at night. Obviously, the only time you want your lights on is at night and you are able to achieve this specific kind of control over your home’s lights with a smart lighting system.
