Similar to watches, refrigerators, thermostats, flashlights, and cell phones, light bulbs have grown smarter in recent years. One of their smartest features is that they allow you to control them wirelessly with tablet or smartphone. In general, smart LED lights are WiFi-enabled versions of standard LED bulbs with many features including the aforementioned remote-controlling, automation, color customization, and even audio playback. An LED Smart Light can produce RGB colors with different intensity as well. Not all inventions get warm welcome from the vast majority of people, because they think (at least at first) that the current version of the same technologies works best for them. When it comes to LED Smart Lights, however, you’ll be pleased to know what they can do for you; here are some of their best features.
A significant amount of your electricity bill pays for the lights you don’t actually need running at all times. LED Smart Lights have sensors that enable them to automatically dim or turn off the light and save energy consumption. You can also control light intensity remotely by using complementary apps installed on your smartphone or tablet. A complete sensor setup may include a motion sensor to detect the presence of occupants, a timer to detect period of inactivity, and daylight sensing.
In addition to their abilities to dim lights and reduce energy consumption, LED Smart Lights are great to create fun party atmospheres as well. As previously mentioned, they can produce many different light colors depending on the variety of light sources equipped. Some models can even create more than 16 million colors. Using a complementary app, you can easily choose the color you want. Light blue for cooling down, golden yellow to get the party started, or completely change the wall color by illuminating it with low intensity hues; it is amazing that you do all of those by tapping on a screen.
Believe it or not, LED Smart Lights can help you sleep better. Some are equipped with specific light settings to suppress the production of melatonin in your body during the day, and increase it when you reach bedtime.
Certain models of LED Smart Lights have built-in speakers to stream and play music from your other smart devices. They are combinations of wireless speakers and light bulbs. When speakers are included, the lights usually pulsate and change colors to match with the sounds being played. How cool is that? They may not be full-blown speakers, but as long as you are in the same room, you can hear the music clearly
