Did you know that the type of light you are exposed to can have a significant impact on your mood, productivity, and overall health? Think about it, when you're trying to focus on work, you likely want to be in a well-lit room that's not too bright or too dim. And when it's time to relax or wind down for the night, you probably don't want harsh overhead lights blaring down at you. How can these varying lighting effects in your home be achieved using your existing lighting system? Enter smart lights.
Smart lights allow the user to control light output in terms of both colour and intensity and they are becoming increasingly popular as people realize the benefits of being able to set their indoor lighting to suit their needs.
So, what are some of the benefits of using smart lights in your home?
Smart lights can help improve focus and concentration. They can also help to regulate sleep patterns by setting the light intensity and colour to match the body's natural circadian rhythm.
Chromotherapy, or the science of using colours to heal, has been in existence for a very long time. In fact, it can be traced back to the ancient Indian medical practice Ayurveda. It seems that modern technology has only now just caught up to the ancient practice of colour therapy with smart lighting allowing the user to achieve different coloured lighting effects throughout the home to help improve mood, focus and overall health.
Whether you want to improve your focus, boost your energy or get a better night's sleep, there's a smart lighting solution for you.
Not sure where to start? Here are some tips on using smart lights to help optimize your work, rest and play.
1. Smart lights that help you work
If you're looking to improve your focus and concentration, try using a smart light with adjustable brightness and colour temperature. A brighter light will help you stay alert and focused, while a warmer light will be more calming and soothing. You can also experiment with different colours of light to see what helps you focus the best. Blue light has been shown to boost productivity, while green light can help reduce eye strain.
2. Smart lighting and rest
If you're trying to get a better night's sleep, try using a smart light with a low colour rendering index (CRI). A low CRI means that the light will be less intense and more calming, which can help you relax before bed. It's vital that you maintain good sleep hygiene practices, including the use of smart lighting, if you want to get the best possible night's rest.
3. Smart lights when it's time to have fun
When it's time to boost those energy levels and get into party mode, it's time to sync your smart lights with some music. Smart lights that change colour and intensity in time with the beat of the music can help create a fun and festive atmosphere. Turn up the volume, crank up the colours and let your smart lights take your party to the next level.
There are many benefits to using smart lights in your home. So, if you're looking for a way to improve your focus, boost your energy or get a better night's sleep, be sure to give them a try. And don't forget to have fun experimenting with all the different colours and lighting effects that you can create!
