Why Switch to Smart Light Bulbs?
As a senior, there are some specific benefits you can gain by using smart lights.
Use smart light bulbs to feel confident when you travel on vacation. When you go to visit family or travel to get away for a bit you can schedule your smart lights to turn on and off, making it appear someone is home.
You can also schedule your light to turn on when it is time for you to wake up. This feature can be a pleasant way to rise and shine. Dimmed warm lighting can help wake you up or just make it easier for you to start moving around once your alarm goes off. You can also wait until you are safely in bed before verbally turning the lights off.
Smart bulbs are also helpful if you have a larger home or difficulty getting around. Instead of walking through each room to check if you have turned the lights off, look at your app to see which lights are still on.
And if you place smart light bulbs outside to light up your porch, you can view the stars with the lights off but turn them back on hands-free before getting up to move. Bumping around in the dark is practically eliminated with the use of smart bulbs.
If you are a caregiver, smart lights are very beneficial for those who live with dementia as a set schedule of lights can be determined, keeping your loved one on a specific agenda. Lights will turn on when it is time to wake up, and you can efficiently turn lights off if your loved one has exited a room but forgot to turn the lights off.
Smart light bulbs are soon to become the new normal as they are energy saving and offer more and more features. When choosing the right bulb for your home, consider if you want to connect your lights to Wi-Fi or would prefer a hub to control all your smart home features. You can also decide if you want a high-tech bulb that has a speaker or multicolored lights. The best part is, no matter what, you can customize your house exactly as you want, and for a pretty reasonable price, as well.
