What You Need to Know About Smart Lighting

Published on March 10, 2019 - by izone admin

A decade or two ago, the idea of being able to control the lights in your home with just your voice was considered a futuristic space-age sci-fi movie trope. Yet, now you can take that once imaginary power and apply it in your own home with smart lighting.

 

Smart Lighting 101

Lights that can be controlled via an app or through another WiFi enabled system are called smart lighting. With the app or another system, you have the power to turn your lights on and off, dim or make them brighter, and with the right bulbs, you can even change the colour of the light altogether. In fact, iZone’s smart bulbs allow you to choose from over 100 shades of white and 16 million different colours.

You can schedule your lights to change colour depending on the time of day or what activities you are doing. For instance, you can have bright “sunlight” to wake you up in the mornings, and then have another setting that is ideal for watching Netflix. You can have yet another setting for eating your meals. The customization possibilities are endless.

 

Needed Systems

The iZone bulbs screw into the regular lighting fixtures that you already own. Ceiling lights, fanlights, and lamps can all use the smart bulbs. Then they can be added to your network using the iZone app or by connecting them to your voice-activated systems like Amazon’s Alexa or your Google Assistant. If your home has WiFi, you already have the most important factor!
