FAQ About Smart Lights

Let’s face it: we’re living in an era of smart technology. From smartphones to smartwatches, you’d be hard-pressed to find someone who hasn’t used a smart device. Yes, the smart wave is stronger than ever, particularly when it comes to smart home products. Smart lights are revolutionizing life at home and illuminating a whole world of possibilities through the magic of wireless connectivity.

What are smart lights and what can they do for me?

Generally compatible with both iPhone and Android, smart lights use WiFi, Bluetooth or a hub/bridge to connect to your smartphone or tablet, allowing you to control your lighting from virtually anywhere. But there's a whole lot more to them than that.

Create custom schedules that fit in with your routine, dim or brighten a room effortlessly from your smartphone, or program them to pulse together with your house alarm. The list goes on.

As smart lights use light-emitting diodes (LEDs), they're also more energy-efficient and longer-lasting than traditional bulbs, so they'll save you money in the long run. Forgot to turn your lights off? A tap on your smartphone can take care of that, saving you even more.

How do smart lights work? Are they easy to install?

A lot of smart lighting products simply screw into a standard socket, making installation as easy as replacing a burned out light bulb. Just screw in the bulbs, set up the wireless connectivity, and you're good to go. Other products, like remote control light switches and smart dimmers, may require some basic wiring during installation.

How do I integrate smart lights with other smart home devices?

Some smart lighting products are compatible with ecosystems like Nest, which bridges communication standards and allows smart products from different brands to work together.

Smart lights can also support IFTTT (if this, then that), a cloud-based application that allows your compatible smart products to join forces to automatically follow IFTTT commands, opening up a whole world of possibilities. Think: A family member unlocks the August Smart Lock on your front door and triggers a living room smart light to change colour.

What are smart LED strip lights?

Smart strip LED lights are long of lights you can use to decorate or illuminate areas of your home. They plug into any standard outlet, and once you sync them with your home network or the smart hub that controls your smart lights, your smart LED strip lights can change color, turn off and on depending on your set schedule, or change colour along with the beat of your music or movies.

A smart LED strip is available in different lengths and can be expanded by adding several smart LED strip lights together. You can place them everywhere, from underneath kitchen cabinets to behind your TV. You can also use smart LED strips outdoors to add landscape lighting by placing them in your shrubs or along your front walk way.
