What to know about smart lighting in Elizabethtown

Do you ever wonder what Thomas Edison would think about modern Elizabethtown smart lights? Beginning with his breakthrough in illumination, we now have access to integrated home automation components that allow you to manipulate all your home's lighting through your mobile device. But before you rush off and buy the most recent system, take time to do a little homework, so you have a better understanding of what you're trying out.

Choose the platform you know

Most systems work with a variety of platforms to manage your smart lighting in Elizabethtown, but it’s wise to stay with something you already have in your daily life . For instance, if you use an Android cell phone, you are most likely to prefer something that functions in conjunction with Google. You could also select Amazon’s Echo so you can use spoken instructions with your smart speaker. It’s important to note, if you have a Vivint home security system, your smart home mobile app will be available on Google, Amazon, Android, and iOS.

Does it make sense to use a smart hub?

You might install a couple bulbs that link smoothly with your home’s existing platform, but then you forgo some advanced features. Vivint’s Smart Home Automation is able to seamlessly pair with your home security package if you are looking for the most versatile performance from your smart lighting in Elizabethtown.

The better option is to include a smart hub and associate your lights with a doorbell camera, door and window sensors, and your additional home defense devices. By doing so your smart bulbs could be configured to instantly brighten in the event your exterior surveillance senses unexpected developments. Or make your lights go down when your home security activates at night.

Customize a schedule for your Elizabethtown smart lights

The option to schedule your lights is a top benefit of smart lighting. Nearly every LED smart bulb can be administered in various manners, allowing you the ability to activate or deactivate them at the time of your choosing. You may even operate them on a timed interval, turn them on or off according to sunrise or sunset hours, or program numerous customized schedules to fit your unique requirements. With your Vivint smart home application, you can instruct your smart lights to do exactly what you need and at the right time, including dimming or brightening per a pre-programmed schedule.

Smart lighting reduces energy consumption and cost

Smart LED light bulbs save more energy than what you once used and aren't hot to the touch. You can also save money with the help of location-based controls, motion detection capabilities, the Vivint smartphone application, or incorporating with your home’s complementary smart home elements. You are able to create a unique lighting configuration within your own home that utilizes and conserves energy like you’ve previously only dreamed of.

Add more automation components to your smart lighting

The beauty of the Vivint smart home concept is its ability to protect your entire home, including not only smart lighting but video doorbells, smart locking systems, indoor and outdoor cameras, integrated thermostats, garage door controls, and a multitude of additional conveniences. If you have authority over your property’s defense systems and automation, your home is more secure than ever before.
