Controlling your home remotely is becoming more achievable year on year, and lighting plays a significant part in this phenomenon. Intelligent home lighting can be as interactive as the user wishes, on a variable scale. Some people look to link their LED lighting with their audio systems and intruder alarm, others simply want to be able to control lighting from a remote location, or to change the lighting state while in the process of moving from room to room. The every day appeal is in the flexibility of this technology.
Building your visual ambiance at home with intelligent lighting can offer your environment variable colour, hue and brightness. Lighting that can not only switch on and off when you arrive and leave, but also react to your music mood, holiday plans and create zones of space that are flexible and malleable. These smart systems work in multiple directions so that your lighting decisions can impact on other wi-fi linked devices and vice versa.
When intelligent lighting is not building layers of ambience into your home, it can be enhancing your home security. For home lighting systems to be truly intelligent, they have evolved from simply being controlled via a timer. As long as a device uses wi-fi, an intelligent lighting solution can use it to inform its functions. With the correct infrastructure, your habits and online calendar can prompt your lighting systems to change state and identify which areas to illuminate. Lighting can communicate with security systems to do more than simply illuminate when a physical sensor is triggered.
Intelligent home lighting solutions allow your home space to become more interactive and adaptable. It’s about connectivity and communication between your apps and devices. The tools that control your lighting, installed correctly, can talk to other devices to make your environment comfortable, ambient and controlled.
