Imagine controlling all the lights in your home with just a single app. Well, that’s how smart bulbs work! Employing wireless transmissions to send and receive signals, smart bulbs work by using Wi Fi connecting directly to your router. While it may seem daunting to make the leap from regular bulbs to smart bulbs, they actually make sense in the long run, especially in terms of cost. The best smart light bulbs provide you with a sense of security whether you are staying in your house or out travelling.

How will Smart Bulbs help my home?

There are many benefits that come with making the switch to smart bulbs. The first is the lower-energy consumption that comes with smart bulbs. Since smart bulbs are Compact Fluorescent Lamp (CFL) or Light-Emitting Diode (LED) bulbs, they use less energy to light up a room. In fact, they use 70 to 90 per cent lesser energy than regular bulbs.

Next, smart bulbs are user-friendly and customizable to the needs of your home security system. By just using your phone, you can set your smart bulbs to turn on and off at certain times or even adjust their brightness across the day.

As we mentioned earlier, smart bulbs help you save costs simply due to their longer life span. With smart bulbs, you can expect them to last for a maximum of 2,000 hours. Smart bulbs are also easier to install, saving you time and money.

Making your home safer with Smart Bulbs

Leaving your home for an extended period of time can definitely cause a sense of dread, so is where smart lighting comes in handy. Do not underestimate what one smart bulb can do for the safety of your home.  With customisable lighting patterns, you set your smart lights to turn on at set hours of the night to scare off any potential intruders.

The best smart light bulb also comes equipped with motion detection sensors alerting homeowners with an app or those indoors for their safety. A distinct security feature of a smart lighting system is its function as an emergency backup during a power cut. No more fumbling in the dark during emergencies!
