Using Smart Home Lighting To Create An Outdoor Atmosphere
If you want to upgrade your home’s exterior lighting to a smart outdoor lighting system, there are some factors to consider. Let’s take a look at what you need to create the ultimate smart home lighting system for your home:
Smart Bulbs- smart bulbs are available which replace your existing outdoor light bulbs. Smart bulbs can be turned on or off, dimmed, you can even change the colour of some smart bulbs, all via an easy to use mobile app. You can set customised exterior lighting schedules, pair your smart bulbs with motion sensors or control them with your voice using voice assistants like Alexa, Google Assistant, and Siri.
Smart Switches- smart switches are a convenient way to turn your standard exterior lighting system into a smart system without replacing all of your light bulbs. Smart switches are perfect for porches, entryway lights, deck lighting and garden area lighting and offers many of the same features and convenience of smart bulbs. You can use smart switches to adjust your home exterior lighting to the seasons, enable voice control, set timers and schedules and to automate outdoor ambient lighting.
Motion/Light Sensors- while most smart outdoor lighting systems requires an internet connection or an app, light sensors and motion sensors automatically turn on when they sense movement or light. This saves energy and provides additional security for your home.
Video And Audio Monitoring- many smart outdoor lighting systems offer components that add video and audio monitoring. You can see who is outside your home and communicate with them using a mobile app. These systems can also record any movement and alert you on your smartphone if someone is at your door.
