Smart homes make it easier to control every aspect of your home, but it can be hard to decide where to start when you are converting from traditional control systems.

The simple answer is: start with your lighting.

Smart lighting systems make it easier to do your everyday routine, from turning out the lights before bed to lighting a dark room before you enter it. But in many ways, smart home lighting systems accomplish much more than added convenience. These are three reasons that these systems are becoming a necessity, and why you should consider making the switch.

  1. Greater Security

Coming home from work late at night to a dark house can be downright scary, if not dangerous. But with smart lighting, you can set timers for when you want lights to turn on, or control them remotely from a mobile device. Turn on your garage lights before you even turn into your driveway, so nothing ever takes you by surprise.

  1. Reduced Costs

While you will pay more money upfront for smart lightbulbs and other needed elements, you’ll spend less over time by using less electricity. You can check to see which lights are still on from anywhere, so you don’t have to worry about accidentally running up your bill. Plus, with dimmable lights, you don’t need to have bulbs using more energy than is required.

  1. More Fun

With all of the other added functions of smart lighting, you also get to have more fun. Many smart bulbs include the ability to change colors when controlled by an app, which means setting a mood for fun when the time calls for it.
