Smart lighting is when your lights are controllable remotely using a wireless connection and a smartphone app. You can set timers and groups for your lights and create schedules to turn one group on and off at a set time or based on specific actions. You can sync your lights with sunrise and sunset, dim or change their color, and control groups of lights on more than one circuit simultaneously. You can also control the lights using voice commands or with programmable wireless buttons and remotes.



A Bright idea for your home


Once the network is in place, there are so many potential benefits for your home. Managing your houses or homes becomes easier, while your family members can benefit too from the power of their smartphone communicating with the mesh network.


Convenience & Safety— Never come home to a dark house again! Set Bright to turn on while you unlock your ULTRALOQ without any wiring.


Health and wellness — Waking up to a gently increasing light is less jarring than an alarm and works. If you struggle with getting up from bed, a smart light gradually simulating the sunrise would throw you out of bed as early as 5:00 am.


This means it can also send you to bed early by simulating sunset and changing your room to feel a lot cozier. Syncing your lights to the color of the sun throughout the day has been shown to help you feel more energized when you need to and start to wind down when it’s time.


Interesting — Color-changing bulbs are fun for parties and events, perfect when you want to match the ambiance to a particular celebration or mood.


Remember the epic romantic scene with the dimly lit room, slow, soothing music in the background, a bottle of wine, and flowers on the bed? Yes! Bright will not bring you wine and flowers, but it will match the vibe of the music you’re listening to, dim the lights, and set the perfect mood for a romantic night with your partner, all with the touch of a button or voice command.


It is also useful as a notification. For example, Bright can be set to turn blue if it’s raining outside or red if you just got an email from your boss, through the IFTTT service.


Do not worry about your bandwidth

Sometimes too many smart devices on your Wi-Fi would drop off your network. A good router can accommodate up to 30 devices on one network. But things get worse if you have devices that suck up a lot of bandwidth, like your smartphones, laptops, and even security cameras.


With multiple mesh nodes, Bright bulbs don’t consume much bandwidth or even slow down WiFi. Because only the root bulb connects to the router, which would count as one device.


A Bright Choice for Bright LED bulbs


More brightness

Compared to other smart bulbs the Bright LED Bulb stands tall with a whooping 1,100 lumen above most smart bulbs rated offering 800 lumens of brightness, which means the 11-watt Bright bulb color shines brighter than the standard 60-watt light bulb.


It’s perfect for reading and even selfies if you like and it also has a color-changing option.


Save energy

What‘s more, the electricity consumption for lighting has dropped largely thanks to switching incandescent and compact fluorescent (CFL) light sources to LED lighting. Gartner predicts that adding smart lighting could ultimately result in savings as high as 90%.


Longer bulb life

Smart bulb life is mostly represented in hours, with most LED bulbs having about 20,000-25,000 hours (an average of about 20 to 25 years if used three hours daily), which is greater than the average incandescent lifespan of about 1,000 hours.
