Smart lighting used to be associated with colour-changing bulbs and the ability to control the lights from one’s phone. But now, smart lighting has evolved, and it’s one of the hallmarks of a smart home.
These days, smart lighting is so much more sophisticated than that. We now live in a world where we can adjust our lights’ brightness and warmth from literally anywhere in the world, and even program our home so that the lights gradually turn dimmer towards bedtime, signalling that it’s time for sleep and helping you have a consistent early bedtime.
Full integrations between smart home systems and lighting designers are also now a thing, meaning you’re no longer limited to a narrow range of lighting options by a single manufacturer.
One such example is the partnership between Sol Luminaire, who are experts in lighting solutions, and smart home systems like Domus, Inhaus and IG Solutions. These companies work hand in hand to provide smart lighting for design-led projects, so that your home is both beautiful and functional.
To help you with your search for a smart lighting system, we chatted with Joseph Ho, co-founder of local lighting company Sol Luminaire, to find out about the five factors you’ll need to consider.
