What you need to know about smart lighting

Shopping for a smart lighting solution for your home? Here are five essential factors to consider.

The future of smart lighting is here. In the past, say “smart lighting” and people would automatically think of colour-changing bulbs and being able to switch the lights on from one’s phone.

These days, smart lighting is so much more sophisticated than that. We now live in a world where we can adjust our lights’ brightness and warmth from literally anywhere in the world, and even program our home so that the lights gradually turn dimmer towards bedtime, signalling that it’s time for sleep and helping you have a consistent early bedtime.

Full integrations between smart home systems and lighting designers are also now a thing, meaning you’re no longer limited to a narrow range of lighting options by a single manufacturer.

One such example is the partnership between Sol Luminaire, who are experts in lighting solutions, and smart home systems like DomusInhaus and IG Solutions. These companies work hand in hand to provide smart lighting for design-led projects, so that your home is both beautiful and functional.

To help you with your search for a smart lighting system, we chatted with Joseph Ho, co-founder of local lighting company Sol Luminaire, to find out about the five factors you’ll need to consider.

    The design

    Good lighting is like a supporting actor on the stage of your home’s interior design: it should highlight the rest of the decor without drawing too much attention to itself, unless intended. Regardless of your home’s design, your lighting should blend in seamlessly and give you free rein to control its brightness and beam angles.

    For the design-conscious homeowner, the AEON Globula and Voli by Sol Luminaire are good choices. “Think of a clean, sleek ceiling look with lights that can be controlled via your phone,” says Joseph.
