Beat the Winter Blues: Automated Lighting Options

Have you ever noticed how much your mood changes with the seasons? You may feel sluggish, unmotivated, or slightly down during the dark winter months. The amount of natural light you’re exposed to each day greatly impacts your mood and mental health.

You don’t have to be a victim of the winter blues. There’s an easy way to improve your well-being and boost your mood during those shorter, darker days: automated lighting options. With smart home technology, you can program an automated lighting schedule to make your indoor environments as bright and natural as a sunny summer day. Plus, add some much-needed outdoor automated lighting options for safety and security.

How Light Impacts Your Mood and Mental Health

The light in your environment deeply impacts your mood and mental health. During the darker winter months, limited daylight can negatively affect your well-being. Smart home lighting automation is an easy way to boost your light exposure and improve your mood artificially.

  • Exposure to bright light helps set your circadian rhythm, the natural cycle your body follows over 24 hours. When your circadian rhythm is disrupted, it can lead to feelings of depression and anxiety. Automated lighting options can turn on in the morning to help establish a consistent wake-up routine and provide an energizing boost of light.
  • Exposure to blue wavelength light during the day increases feelings of happiness and positivity. Smart bulbs can be tuned to emit a bright, blue-enriched white light that mimics natural daylight. Automated lighting options using smart bulbs that are preprogrammed to turn on during the day, especially in the morning, help ensure you get the light you need.
  • Dimming and automating your lights at night is important for good sleep hygiene and mood. Harsh, bright lights late into the evening can suppress melatonin production, making it harder to fall asleep. Automating your lights to dim gradually in the hour before bed helps you wind down for sleep and ensures your circadian rhythm stays on track.

By automating your home’s lighting, you can achieve the perfect balance of light for an improved mood and better mental well-being. Your mind and body will thank you. Give your home a refresh by bringing in smart technology that helps create an ideal environment tailored to your needs. You’ll be feeling brighter in no time.

Automated Lighting Options for Outdoor Spaces

automated lighting options for outdoors Outdoor lighting is about aesthetics AND security. Turning on and off lights outside your home every evening isn’t exactly convenient. Automated lighting options allow you to have peace of mind and convenience without even lifting a finger.

Motion detection lighting automatically triggers walkways welcoming guests and warning intruders. It can also notify you of someone approaching, whether you are home or not. When lights turn on unexpectedly, it can warn unwelcome individuals that they can be seen. The light is perfect to help with video recording on an alarm system, if enabled.

A welcome addition to your outdoor space includes scheduling lights to set the perfect atmosphere for a quiet evening alone, hanging out with friends and neighbors around the pool, or creating that “business as usual” atmosphere to ward off would-be intruders while you’re on vacation. Lighting can even be solar, saving both energy and money.

During the short days of winter, we often leave before daylight and return after sundown. Consider how welcoming it is to pull up to your well-lit home with specific rooms or areas lit and ready for your arrival.
