How Automated Shading & Lighting Transforms Your Mood & Décor
Relive Your Favorite Moments with Lighting and Shading Scenes
It’s difficult to understand the ‘wow’ effect of home automation until you experience it. Picture telling your smart speaker, “Chill,” and watching your home’s shades lower, lights shift to dim whites, magentas, and blues, and soft jazz music starts playing from your sound system—all at once. No longer are you just standing in your home; you’ve been transported to a moment that can be relived over and over.
Lighting and shading have immense power to shift our moods and the way our home’s interior looks. From wellness to hosting get-togethers, continue reading to see how automated shading and lighting make all the difference in your home.
Improve Wellbeing and Mood
We can’t emphasize enough the importance of lighting and its relation to our moods. Bright, cool-colored light is excellent for our energy levels in the morning but will make us feel uncomfortable at night like we’re under bright fluorescents. Warm, soft lighting may inspire relaxation and sleepiness, which is perfect for the evening but not during the day. That’s why circadian lighting is one of the most exciting features of tunable LEDs. Your lights will automatically adjust throughout the day with shades rising and lowering at appropriate times, so you’ll feel in a better mood, more alert, and attuned for bed at night.
Enhance Your Art Collection
Just as lighting can make or break the photos we take, your home looks its best when the color temperature and hue of your bulbs complement the interior décor. Your art collection deserves to look its best, and not lit under any old light bulbs. All art museums employ specific lighting designs to accentuate works of art and protect the paint. Your tunable LEDs can be set to make colors pop, bringing out bright whites, rich reds, deep blues, or dramatic blacks. Set automated shades to lower when the sun is hitting directly on to the artwork, so that the colors won’t fade.
A Night to Remember
Whether you’re hosting a get-together for three people or thirty, everyone will be in awe of your smart system’s lighting and shading effects. With saved scenes, you can transform the mood in one press of a button. Celebrate 4th of July with red, white, and blue lights throughout the house and outdoors, or a late-night party with rainbow colors. Sync your speaker system to the smart scenes, too, so you’ll drop into the perfect atmosphere with the right playlist.
Automated shading and lighting can also assist your home theater or media room when it’s time for a showing. Enjoying a Harry Potter marathon on a rainy day? Press “Movie Mode” on your smart system’s app and watch the shades lower and lights dim instantly. You can arrange for small pathway lights to illuminate, too, so you don’t stumble on your way to the bathroom. If you have a bar or popcorn machine in the back of the room, dim overhead lights will shine on that space, arranging the room effortlessly.
