According to a study, the average smart thermostat can reduce heating costs by 10% and cooling costs by 15% in a residence. For an average household, that could mean around $130 in savings each year.
One incandescent bulb costs about $4.80 a year in electricity. Let’s say that your home has 20 incandescent bulbs; that’s $96 a year. If you have 20 smart bulbs, it costs just $1 each, or $20 a year.
Depending on which smart lights you choose, they can connect to your smart hub. If your smart hub is voice activated then you will be able to speak to your smart hub to turn your lights on and off.
Smart lights use CFL or LED bulbs instead of incandescent bulbs, and can reduce the amount of electricity needed to light a room. An ENERGY STAR®️–certified smart bulb uses 70 to 90 percent less energy than a traditional bulb.
The average incandescent bulb has a lifespan of 750 to 2,000 hours. In contrast, the LED smart lights can work continuously for 35,000 to 50,000 hours, causing your lights to last longer.
Many of the best smart-lighting options include motion-detection features, so bulbs turn on or off depending on whether someone is in the room.
Smart lights can turn on when you get home from work, dim when you leave, and turn off automatically when you go to bed.
You can easily connect your smart lights to your smart phone and completely control all of the lighting in your home with the swipe of a finger. On top of that you can easily set schedules so the lights turn on and off automatically. Once they are set, you never have to think about turning a light on or off again.
Depending on which smart lights you choose, but the simple answer is Yes. They can turn on and off automatically with motion.
Absolutely! Depending on which smart hub you have, you can set specific moods. Saying a set phrase can turn the lights exactly how you want them depending on your mood you are in. “Alexa, we’re about to watch a movie”, then the lights dim.. It’s that simple.
