The Mood Is Always Right with an Automated Lighting System
See How Self-Adjusting Smart Lights Create the Perfect Ambiance
We know ‘perfect’ may sound like an exaggeration, but when you have an automated lighting system at home, you can enjoy perfect lighting all day long.
Think of your home’s lighting as it is now. Are there any rooms that feel a little dark and murky during the day? Do you own any light fixtures that shine far too bright and harsh? Perhaps you find yourself in the living room, trying to set the mood to watch the game and socialize. If you turn two light switches off, it’s too dark, but if you only turn off one, it’s still too bright. What can be done?
For those concerned with their home’s atmosphere (we are too!), a smart lighting system is one of the most exciting technological developments in recent years. You’ll customize the brightness and color temperature of any light in your home, right from your phone or tablet.
But it doesn’t stop at personalization. Automated lighting systems like Lutron let you program when and how your lights turn on without requiring any input from you. Get inspired for your Vero Beach, FL home and see how each area of your home can enjoy better lighting.
Since you use your living room to socialize, read, or watch movies, you won’t want lighting that is too bright or cool-tinted after dark. On your lighting system’s app, schedule your smart LEDs to automatically tune to a warm color temperature between 2200-3000 Kelvin—the measurement for light warmth. You can save a scene called ‘Relaxing’ that will automatically turn on specific lights, set to your preferred dimming level for each fixture.
If you’re getting ready for work, you need lights to be bright enough to see clearly in the mirror—but you don’t want to endure unflattering lights. Set your smart bathroom lights to a neutral white, between 3500 and 5000K. As nighttime approaches, your lights can gradually warm for a cozier appearance that won’t be jarringly bright to turn on.
There’s a reason many restaurants use dim lighting with small candles on the table. Yes, it looks romantic, but furthermore, no one likes feeling as though a spotlight’s watching them eat. As the sun sets, your dining room lights can automatically shift to cozy, golden lighting. A brightness level between 3000 and 6000K will still be bright enough to see everyone’s faces around the table without shining too brightly.
Natural light is best in a home office. But if you do need to turn on a lamp during a daytime rain shower, you’ll want bright, cool-white lights at around 3000 to 5000K. Avoid warm lighting during the day, or you might start to feel groggy. A lighting automation system can automatically shift your lights to a slightly warmer tone at night if you’re working late.
If your bedroom’s lighting isn’t right, it could throw off your entire night’s sleep! We can program your bedroom lights to shift to a low color temperature, between 2700 and 3000K, for a golden warmth. Nighttime readers can enjoy bedside lamps automatically set to the perfect brightness level. And you can turn off lights across the room right from bed, tapping a button labeled ‘Goodnight’ beside your bed, on your phone app, or over voice command.
