Smart Lighting is the latest technology that allows you to control your lighting according to mood, occasion and even remotely using mobile devices. Smart lamps play a vital role in smart lighting and there is already an extensive range on the market from colour changing LEDS, aroma diffusing to some featuring speakers and CCTV.
Smart bulbs really do live up to their name. Many can connect to a mobile device (phone or tablet) wirelessly without the need of additional hardware. Simply download an app or use the supplied remote and the intensity, temperature or colour of the light can be selected. For bars, exercise studios, lobbies and restaurants the plethora of coloured lighting effects available will be key to creating and adapting the atmosphere at the flick of a switch. As smart lamps use LEDs they are typically more energy efficient than the halogen or incandescent equivalent, with a high lumen output you won’t compromise on output. For example, some 4W and 9W LED lamps emit the same power as a traditional halogen 25W bulb so retrofitting smart bulbs will give a long-term cost saving.
There are some lamps that offer more than a light source such as aroma diffusers, speakers and even WIFI enabled CCTV. Smart lamps with speakers can connect directly to a mobile device and have a range of up to 30 metres for music to be selected, depending on requirements. Colour changing and aroma diffusing models perform similarly. The user is simply required to download an app to control the aroma emissions and colour changing functionality, plus with Bluetooth it’s possible to control more than one bulb simultaneously. These lamps would be ideal for use in spas and beauty therapy rooms.
The range and choice of smart lamps available is already vast and growing at rapid rate, even for the more unusual fittings so they are simple to retrofit. Compare our range now to see how easy the transition to smart light bulbs could really be.
