Demystifying Smart Lighting

Smart lighting is an integration of various technologies to enable lights to work automatically under certain conditions. There are different types of smart lighting network that can perform various tasks such as switch on when one gets into a room or even change color. Smart lighting at times also does have sensors that regulate the amount of light when needed or when desired. Smart lighting is usually networked and can be controlled remotely.


Smart lighting network can be different as per the settings. The lights sometimes work independently and at times together. The two main types of smart lighting, however, are; sensory integrated and the non-sensory integrated.

 

The sensor integrated lights have sensors which make it possible for them to recognize people, daylight and among other things. The sensors can also be manually controlled if need be. The non-sensor integrated lights as the name suggest have no sensors. They are however still considered smart as they can still be programmed.

 

Smart lights are usually controlled in two ways: by use of control hubs or use of smart devices. In small houses, one can use a computer, tablet or smartphone to control lights when connected through Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. In big buildings, a dedicated control hub is used to maintain the smart lighting.
