Smart lights: Why you need them and their benefits
Home automation & smart lighting are revolutionizing how people control the lighting in their homes, conserve energy and improve security with simple voice commands and home connectivity. It’s why smart lighting systems are one of many energy-saving strategies for smart homes, and they’re also a great first step into the Internet of Things (IoT) if you’re curious about smart technology.
Connectivity is integral to how smart lights work. Smart lighting connects easily to other IoT devices—all of Kamonk’s devices are IoT based and can integrate with each other simultaneously. Kamonk is one of the best home automation companies in India and is proud to offer you a range of IoT-based smart devices.
What are smart light bulbs?
Smart light bulbs are long-lasting LED light bulbs that can be controlled and customized remotely through voice-controlled or smart technology. Smart lighting is often connected to Alexa, Google Assistant or Siri, and it can even be controlled using the mobile app.
How do smart Wi-Fi lights work?
Smart Wifi Lights work in one of two ways:
1. Connecting to the cloud throught Wi-Fi, mobile data
2. Networking with another using Bluetooth.
The bulbs’ connectivity allows users to turn lights on and off using voice control, smart-home routines, or remotely through the smartphone app. You can create smart scenes with other devices like the smart door lock.
No need to get up to use a light switch anymore.: a simple command can turn on every light in your house and also control other devices like the digital door lock.
You can use voice control or the smartphone app to operate your wifi bulb.
What are Kamonk’s smart light bulbs compatible with?
Our smart light bulbs work with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or mobile data. You can control the bulb through the smartphone app without needing additional hubs or using the universal remote.
Benefits of smart lighting
Smart light bulbs & smart home solutions offer many benefits that can offset the initial costs over the long run. The best smart lighting options conserve energy, last much longer than traditional light bulbs and offer customization options that are both fun and practical.
Lower energy use
Smart home automation solutions like smart lights use CFL or LED bulbs instead of incandescent bulbs, and can reduce the amount of electricity needed to light a room.
Longer life span
The average incandescent bulb has a lifespan of 750 to 2,000 hours. In contrast, the LED smart lights can work continuously for 35,000 to 50,000 hours, causing your lights to last longer.
Increased security. Our smart-lighting options include smart scheduling features, so bulbs turn on or off depending on what time you set them to.

Easy-to-use light customization.
Whether your property is a business or a private residence, you probably use certain lights at set times. Home lighting automation using smart bulbs can be preset to turn on when you come home from work, dim toward the end of the night or turn off at specified times. Smart lights from Kamonk also integrate with various other devices like the wifi touch switch,
Fun settings and uses
Smart lights are as fun as they are functional. Kamonk’s smart light bulb offers more than 16 million colors to choose from and they can be integrated with a smart lock too.
Smart bulbs versus smart light switches
Smart bulbs are specialized bulbs that can be used with most light sockets and can also function with other smart devices like the fingerprint door lock. Smart switches, however, are installed in place of traditional light switches, and offer many of the features associated with smart bulbs and can work with any light bulbs.
Even traditional incandescent bulbs can be used with smart switches and work with a universal remote control (although given the energy-saving benefits of LEDs, using a smart switch to control incandescent lights is counterproductive).
What are smart bulb sockets?
Smart light sockets are installed between normal light sockets and light bulbs and can be used to turn regular lights on and off. Each type of smart socket comes with its own features, with some allowing the user to dim lights or set schedules with smart-home hubs. Smart sockets add extra length between the light fixture and the light bulb, so in certain light fixtures, they may make bulbs extend too far out.
What are smart plugs?
Smart plugs can be used to control floor lamps, desk lamps and decorative lights, so they deserve a mention here. They can make any object a smart device by turning power on-and-off at the source, and can be controlled with voice assistants or the mobile app. Smart plugs are especially effective when combined with energy-efficient string lights for indoor or outdoor use.

Install smart bulbs to save energy.
Since Alexa light bulbs consume far less energy than incandescent bulbs, they can save even more energy when they’re programmed to be turned off at a specific time automatically.
Control smart lighting anytime, anywhere.
Everyone’s forgotten to turn off a light at some point. If you have smart lighting, you can turn of the lights even after you’ve left! Whenever you think you’ve left the lights on at home or at work, you can turn lights off remotely via your phone app so that they won’t burn energy when no one’s on the premises.
Dim your smart lighting with preset settings and commands.
Smart-assistant routines can be used to set lights to automatically dim under specific circumstances. In a restaurant, for instance, lights may dim to create a more romantic, intimate ambiance. At home, you might create a routine where lights dim when you turn on the television, or even schedule softer lighting for when you usually eat dinner.
Have fun with smart-color light bulbs.
While incandescent lights can provide only a single color, our LED lights that can integrate with a touch switch can produce over 16 million colors.
Smart-color light bulbs can be set to change color depending on your mood and you can create smart scenes to automate it with other devices like a google smart lock. For some ideas, green is great for relaxation, red has energizing properties, and blue works well to set a cool mood.
Sync and play music with smart light bulb speakers.
Smart light bulb speakers can be used to play music, news stories or podcasts in any room of your property by transmitting your voice commands to a smart-home hub. Some smart light bulb speakers can actually sync to music, flashing or dimming in time with the beat, to turn any room into a mini dance party. Furthermore, all of Kamonk’s devices can be integrated with other devices like the, electric smart switch.
Improve your sleep quality with color temperatures.
Using the Alexa smart LED bulb, light can appear warm or cool, and it can have an effect on your space. For instance, the effects of blue light on wakefulness are well documented. Blue light can disrupt the body’s circadian rhythm—the internal clock that regulates sleep.
To improve sleep quality, try blocking blue wavelengths with smart-color light bulbs to reduce your exposure to blue light at night –– look to warm colors, like orange, instead.
Smart light bulbs are increasingly common in homes and businesses and are valued for their energy conservation and versatility. When combined with smart assistants and home security systems from Kamonk, smart lights offer you the opportunity to tailor your lights to meet your personal needs.
