Need for Smart Lighting System
Smart lighting generally uses mesh networking, where each smart bulb wirelessly connects to its nearest neighbour. That network is controlled by a hub (hagway) that plugs into your router, enabling your other networked devices - such as your phone or tablet - to communicate with your bulbs. Some systems also have an away from home mode that enables you to control the lights when you are far away. You will often find that smart light systems can also be accessorised with additional items such as dimmer switches or motion detectors.
For example, press ‘Goodnight’ to turn all your lights off or ‘Pathway’ to light the way downstairs. Smart lighting control also contributes to a safe environment by linking with the security system to turn all lights on if uninvited activity is detected.
