As part of a smart home, smart lights can deter burglars by making your home look occupied when you're not there. As well as controlling them remotely, you can set realistic schedules that mimic real-life, such as having your lights come on at sunset. You can also take advantage of motion sensors to turn front porch lights into motion-triggered security lighting.
Most off-the-shelf connected devices need their own app to control them. By consolidating your smart lights and other devices around a single platform, you get a single app for everything in the home. When you go to bed, you can turn off your smart lights, check your door locks, and arm your security system via a single screen.
Off-the-shelf smart light bulbs are expensive because the ‘smart' technology lives in the bulb. Our hardware lives in the wall switch. Once that's installed, your smart lights can incorporate a huge range of bulbs, from specialist LED bulbs to cheap fluorescent. That's a great value, especially when you have multiple lights controlled by the same switch.
