What to know about smart lighting in Yakima

Do you ever wonder what Thomas Edison would do if he saw our latest Yakima smart lighting? Beginning with his breakthrough in illumination, we now have smart home systems that allow you to control all your home's light sources via your mobile device. But before you rush off and buy the most recent system, take time to do a little homework, so you know what’s you should get for your lights.

Select the platform you know

Most systems work with several different platforms to control your smart lighting in Yakima, but it might be best to stay with a platform you already have in your daily life . To illustrate, if you use an Android mobile device, you would likely prefer something that functions in conjunction with Google. Or you could select Amazon Alexa as an alternative so you can utilize voice controls with your smart speaker. Keep in mind, if you install a Vivint security and automation package, your smart light app will function with Google, Apple, and Amazon's platforms.

Does it make sense to use a smart hub?

You might install one or two smart light bulbs that link straightforwardly with your home’s existing platform, but then you forgo some safety and convenience advantages. Vivint’s Smart Home Automation is able to integrate into your home’s security if you are looking for the most versatile performance from your smart lighting in Yakima.

You will find it worthwhile to link with a hub system and join your lighting with a smart doorbell, door and window sensors, and your additional home defense devices. As a result your smart lighting could be configured to automatically illuminate when an outside camera notices some questionable activity. You might also enjoy having your lights go down while your home security activates before bed.

Sleep soundly with your Yakima smart lights

The option to customize a unique schedule is one of the best features of your Yakima smart lighting. Nearly every LED smart bulb can be managed in various manners, allowing you the versatility to turn them on or off at the time of your choosing. You are also able to operate them on a timed interval, manage them according to sunrise or sunset hours, or create various personalized plans to suit your needs. When using the Vivint home automation and security app, you can make them do what you like and at the right time, including getting brighter or dimmer according to a set routine.

Smart lighting is affordable and lowers your energy bill

LED smart lights are much more energy-efficient than the light bulbs you used before and they don’t get hot when in use. You can save even more money on utilities through the use of a smart hub, motion sensing, the Vivint mobile app, or incorporating with other smart home components. You will find that you’ve created a custom illumination plan in your very own residence that utilizes and conserves energy like never before.

Take your home automation past smart lighting

One of the great benefits of the Vivint smart home design is that it’s intended to be comprehensive, including not only smart lighting but front door cameras, smart locks, interior and exterior video cameras, smart thermostats, garage door controls, and an array of other features. If you have authority over your home’s automation and protection, your house reaches a new level of safety.
