Smart lighting in the spotlight: what it is, how it works and why you need it in your home.
Lighting is one the easiest and most effective ways to instantly change the ambience of a room. Making the switch to smart lighting means you can instantly set the mood and freshen up the feel of your home.
So, what is smart lighting?
A smart lightbulb differs from a regular lightbulb in that it contains a small chip, which enables it to be controlled remotely by your smartphone. This means there are several features a smart lightbulb has that a regular lightbulb doesn’t - dimming, scheduling and changing colour to name a few.
How does it work?
You can easily replace your existing bulb with a smart one; simply get the fitting that is correct for your lamp or ceiling/wall light. Smart home brands differ when it comes to setting up and how the lights work. Some brands require an external bridge to be installed, which costs extra and can often be complex to set up.
With Accio lights, you only need your smart light and your smartphone. Accio smart lights are controlled directly through the Accio app. No installing, no external bridge, no hidden costs. Download the app, add the light, and you’re done. Total remote control.
Why do I need this?
Have you ever collapsed on the sofa or just got cosy in bed, to then realise you’ve left the light on?
A smart light can be turned on/off remotely via your phone. From any room, or anywhere with internet connection. You never need to get out of bed to turn off the lights again.
Have you ever wanted to change the brightness of your ceiling lights, but couldn’t face having to install a dimmer?
Accio smart lights can be dimmed easily and instantly via the app. One bulb, any brightness.
Are you using one room in your house for multiple purposes?
You can switch between cool white, warm white or ANY colour and change the lights to fit the room’s purpose; bright white for office space, warm white for reading corner, calming blue for evening relaxation… you get the idea.
Need more convincing?
Do you tend to leave the lights on when you’re out for the evening or going away on holiday?
We all know the routine; last minute rush out the door to get to the airport, delayed by having to set up the lamp timers to come on for two hours every night at 8pm. Not anymore! With smart lighting, you can set the timer whilst you’re on the move. The Accio app lets you schedule your lights to turn on/off at the same time every evening. No fuss. One tap.
Do you have an Alexa or a Google Home?
They’re pretty cool; one command and you’ve got a reminder set, a song playing or a weather forecast. Add summoning the light to that list! When you’ve got your hands full, simply say “Turn on my light”.
