Modern lighting systems aren't limited to switching individual lights; they can affect as few or as many as you wish. This means that with single button presses you can, for example, change between cooking-a-romantic-dinner lighting and enjoying-a-romantic-dinner lighting, or switch all of the lights off when you leave your home.
What makes these systems smart is that you don't just have to press buttons to get them to do what you want. When you arrive home, your lights could be on in anticipation of your arrival. In the event of an emergency, systems can be configured to automatically turn on escape route lighting. A midnight trip to the bathroom automatically illuminated to guide your children. With smart phones and tablets you needn't worry about having left any lights on, as you can turn them off from anywhere in the world.
These systems can also save energy. With the inclusion of occupancy sensors, lights can automatically switch off when no-one is detected in the room. Dimming lights will help prolong lamp life as well as using less energy. Lighting can really change the atmosphere of a home and can be used to great effect to set the mood. Add in colour changing LEDs and modern lighting systems have never been so exciting.
Philips Hue is a wireless lighting system that can easily be installed in your home. The range includes LED lightbulbs and strips and a range of table lamps. Hue products contain all of the technology required to change colour, dim, switch on and off at the tap of a smart phone screen. Just plug the Hue Hub into your router and start upgrading your lighting.
The Hue LED Bulbs are a straight swap for your current bulbs. Simply remove your existing bulb, fit the Hue replacement and connect it in the app. At only 9W each, they probably use less power than the bulbs they replace! They are available in the most common fittings B22 (bayonet), E27 (screw) and GU10.
Philips produce LED lighting strips as part of Hue which are perfect for indirect lighting effects such as illuminating alcoves. The strips can be cut or extended to perfectly suit your requirements.
A range of table lamps, Hue light switches and pendant lights give even more flexibility. There are official iOS and Android apps and Windows Phone apps all available. Philips Hue also supports integration with other systems opening up the possibilities of motion control, syncing the lighting with games and movies and even changing the lighting to reflect the weather forecast!
