Can you imagine what Thomas Edison would think about today's Boulder smart lights? Starting from his breakthrough in illumination, we now have integrated home automation components that let you control your connected LED lights with your phone. Nevertheless, before you hurry away and acquire the heavily advertised new advancement, take time to do a little homework, so you know what you're trying out.

Choose the platform you're used to

Numerous systems are compatible with several different platforms that can control your smart lighting in Boulder, but it makes sense to stay with what you already have in your daily life . To illustrate, if you have an Android mobile device, you would likely favor a system that functions in conjunction with Google. You could also select Amazon’s Echo so you can utilize voice controls on your speaker. It’s important to note, if you have a Vivint smart home, your smart home mobile app will function with Google, Apple, and Amazon's platforms.

Should you include a smart hub?

You could get a few bulbs that integrate smoothly with your home network, but you will forgo several safety and convenience advantages. Vivint’s Smart Home Automation will seamlessly pair with your home security package if you are looking for the most from your smart lighting.

The better option is to link with a smart hub and pair your lights with a smart doorbell, door and window sensors, and your additional security and automation components. Then your lights could be configured to automatically illuminate if one of your home’s video cameras notices some unexpected developments. You might also enjoy having your lights turn off when your security alarms arm before bed.

You have control over your Boulder smart lights

The flexibility to customize a unique schedule is one of the best features of smart lighting. Virtually every smart light bulb can be controlled in different methods, providing you the versatility to turn them on or off when you want. You can also operate them on a timed interval, turn them on or off in conjunction with daybreak and sundown, or program a range of custom plans to suit your needs. With your Vivint security app, you can instruct your smart lights to do whatever you want and when the time is right, including lowering or illuminating per a fixed plan.

Smart lighting reduces energy consumption and cost

LED smart lights save more energy than the light bulbs you once used and they won’t burn your fingers if you touch them when they’re on. You can also save money by utilizing location-based controls, motion detection capabilities, the Vivint cell phone app, or linking with your home’s complementary smart home elements. You are able to create an ecosystem right at your own house to use and save energy like never before.

Then expand beyond smart lighting

The beauty of the Vivint smart home solution is it’s all-encompassing, including not only smart lighting but video doorbells, smart locks, indoor and outdoor cameras, integrated thermostats, garage door functionality, and a multitude of additional conveniences. Once you have total command of your home security and automation, your home becomes more secure.
