Lighting is one of the most influential elements in interior design. Smart LED lighting can help ensure that it always works in your favor. Balanced lighting can change the feel of your home. Depending on the lighting you choose, the same layout, paint colors, and decor can look completely different. While most design elements are static, lighting can fluctuate throughout the day with natural sunlight or switching on and off ceiling lights. Traditionally, home lighting was manually adjusted throughout the day. Therefore, while you may intend to dim the lights from bright during the day to soft candlelight in the evening, it's easy to forget in the daily bustle.
This is where smart LED lighting comes in handy. Smart LED lighting can be programmed into an entire smart lighting system, allowing us to control individual light bulbs or sets of light bulbs with a touch of a button. Even better, the best smart lighting systems will have automatic lighting options, meaning you can program the lights once and enjoy perfect lighting every day, without even flipping a switch. With smart LED lighting, you can rely on the best family lighting every day. Proper lighting can boost moods, increase productivity, promote better sleep, and make you feel more satisfied in your home.
Let's start with safety. In a 2016 study, researchers reported that people felt safest in bright white LED outdoor environments, compared to yellow sodium lights. Smart LED lighting can be set up to light your driveway and front yard when you return home from work. If you're leaving town for the weekend, you can also program external and internal lights to turn on and off, indicating to potential thieves that someone is home.
The benefits of smart LED lighting also include improving personal safety. Every year, over 37 million people worldwide fall severe enough to require medical attention. While you may think that older adults are the only ones at risk of falling, young people aged 15-29 are the next group at risk of falls, followed by children aged 15 or younger. Arthritis, chronic pain, diabetes, Parkinson's disease, or medication such as sedatives or antidepressants can make people prone to tripping, especially in uneven, cluttered or snow-covered ground. Using smart LED lighting, well-lit entrance paths create a safe path to your home.
