Not long ago, people considered home lighting to be simply functional. It served one purpose – to light a room – and that was it. But things have changed for the better. Now, we understand that the brightness and hue of lighting have a direct effect on our bodies. Circadian home lighting is a smart system that automatically adjusts the color and intensity of the lights throughout the day to sync with your body’s natural rhythm.
According to ScienceDaily, studies demonstrate that having natural light at the right time of day helps regulate our circadian clock, mood, and alertness. When you have a circadian lighting system in your home, you’ll notice the positive effects and could even start feeling better too!
Bet your old security camera can’t recognize faces and objects. Today’s smart surveillance systems have transformed the entire security industry. Because smart cameras use artificial intelligence and video analytics, they are able to tell the difference between a human and an animal, a stranger and a family member, and an apple and an orange. They can even read license plates.
Best of all, when your surveillance cameras are part of a robust home security system, they alert you when they detect a threat or something triggers a pre-programmed setting. Add to that biometric smart locks, geofencing, and remote features, and you’ll have a home that is virtually impenetrable.
You’ve heard of 4K TVs. In fact, you probably have one in your home theater right now. But yesterday’s 4K is no match for today’s models. The newest 4K TVs are ultra-high definition with 120Hz refresh rates (or more), improved HDR imaging, and updated smart programming! You can even upgrade to 8K for four times the pixel density. In addition, OLED and QLED models deliver the brightest displays with the most vivid color and contrast imaginable.
Along the same lines, if you enjoy quality home entertainment, then you likely have a 5.1 surround-sound system in your private cinema or media room. Why not take the experience to the highest level? It’s time to consider a 7.1.2 surround-sound system with high-end speakers. When you add two more speakers in the rear of your theater and two ceiling speakers, you’ll create a dome of sound that is amazingly realistic and immersive.
Custom smart home integration is all about luxury. By tapping an icon in your tablet or smartphone app, you enjoy complete control of every technology in your home. Adjust the lights, turn up the whole-home sound system, play your favorite movie, change the temperature, or raise and lower the motorized blinds – whatever you want! And yet, it gets even better.
With the arrival of voice assistants in recent years, smart home integration has become even easier to use. Most voice assistants, such as Alexa, Google Assistant, and Josh.ai, can be completely integrated with your smart home system. Then, you won’t have to lift a finger to operate any technology. Just say the word to unlock the doors, turn off the lights, or start the hot tub jets. This is the ultimate in luxurious living.
