TweetPosted in Articles on 12/4/2019
So you’ve finally got yourself one of those fancy Smart Home Assistants, whether it’s Google Home or Amazon Alexa, now all you need are some Smart Lights to pair it with! Looking for a compatible Smart Lighting system can be daunting, but don’t worry, we’ve got you sorted at PB Tech with Xiaomi’s affordable range of quality Smart Lights!
To get you started, let’s take a look at some of our most popular Smart Lights at PB Tech!
The Mi LED Desk Lamp is specially designed to dissipate heat better and reduce flickering that causes harmful effects on the eyes. Use the Mi Home app to switch between 4 different lighting modes or use the knob to switch on or off, or adjust brightness and colour temperature to suit your mood.
Focus mode adopts the Pomodoro Technique, a time management method developed by Francesco Cirillo in 1992. It uses a timer to break down work into intervals to increase efficiency and add a sense of accomplishment.
Read mode prevents eye fatigue by adjusting the colour temperature to a neutral hue and a 100% luminance. Set it to Read mode and cram studying at three in the morning should be a breeze!
Computer mode ensures the colour temperature range is kept at 2700K, which reduces the amount of blue light entering the human eye.
Child mode ensures that the colour temperature doesn’t exceed 4000K; effectively protecting children’s eyes from potential optical damage.
If you or someone in your family spends a lot of time at their desk either working, studying, gaming, or drawing, the Mi LED Desk Lamp is eye-deal for protecting your vision and getting stuff done.
Ever hear the quote, “Dance like nobody’s watching”? Well, the Yeelight Motion Sensor Night Light is always watching and it’ll light up when you do the Macarena. Okay, not really, but it automatically lights up for 20 seconds upon your every movement in the dark.
Motion sensor lights are excellent for saving money on electricity bills. They provide light when you need it, and stop when you don’t. The Yeelight Motion Sensor Night Light is rechargeable and has a battery life of 120 days – imagine how much money you could save! Its sensing range reaches up to 7 meters so you can install it in the hallway, down the stairs or in the kitchen, and before you know it you’re raiding at the pantry at 2 AM.
The Yeelight Smart LED Ceiling Light uses 72 pieces of LED to illuminate every corner of the room. This simple yet elegant ceiling light prevents dust and insects from entering the interior thanks to its cleverly integrated design. It only takes 5 minutes to install and comes in White and Starry Sky.
Adjust the brightness and colour temperature using the Mi Home app and control your lights, even when you aren’t home. It’s a great security option for when you’re on holiday because your home never looks empty. It also means you can come home to a lit house without leaving your lights on and wasting electricity. You can also dim the lights or switch between Daylight mode and Moonlight mode (ultra-low brightness of 1.5lm) using hands-free voice control via your Google Home or Amazon Alexa.
Colour your home with the Yeelight Smart LED Light Bulb in White or RGB. It has the brightness of 800lm in just 10W and has the life span of up to 22.8 years! Achieve an ambient atmosphere, anytime with 16 million different colours to suit your girlfriend’s 16 million different moods. Want to warm up the feel of a room? Just ask your Google Home or Amazon Alexa to change the light colour to yellow. Want to cool it down? Change it to light blue.
Sync your lights with the music when you’re getting lit, set a bedtime schedule for your kids, dim the lights without having to get out of bed, or automatically switch them off when leaving home. You can also program them to gradually turn on or slowly dim so you can wake up and drift off to sleep easier. Who knew a Smart Light Bulb could be so fun?
Are they worth it?
Smart Lighting saves you energy, time, and money, and it’s definitely worth considering investing in. You use your smartphone for everything else anyway, why not use it to control your lights, too? Say “OK, Google, turn all the lights off,” as you head out the door or “Alexa, dim the lights,” when you’re in the Ultimate Relaxation Mode. It’s all about simplifying your life.
