Can you imagine laying down in bed at night, exhausted, and being able to turn off your ceiling light just by touching a button on your smart watch instead of getting out of bed? Could you imagine forgetting to turn out your kitchen and foyer hall on the way out to a week long vacation and being able to shut them off from your smart phone at the airport? All of these things are becoming a reality with the innovations in IoT lighting. Gooee has made wireless and bluetooth capable LED lights that can connect to any smart device making it possible to remotely control residential lighting.
Shutting lights on and off remotely is not it’s only feature. There are ways that controlling light through the home can contribute to overall health. It has been shown that in certain months, more light is needed in the morning when it’s darker and dimmer lights in the evening contribute to an ease of falling into sleep. These smaller changes in the light can work symbiotically with the circadian rhythms in the human body. With all of the health apps monitoring health and sleep quality it is only just on the horizon that the LED capabilities can be fused with those sleeping and health apps to create ideal lighting environments inside the home to help humans function and perform at their peak comfort and health.
