It's holiday time! That means special time with family and friends, or maybe even some fun entertaining and parties. Using smart lighting as part of your smart home system allows you to set the mood and the scene. Echo Workshop partners with companies like Savant Systems and Lutron Electronics to create the perfect system designed for your home. Scenes have pre-set on and off times, give you the ability to set brightness and color/warmth of the lighting and which rooms you would like illuminated. With one touch you can be ready for an intimate dinner, a glitzy party, or game night with the family. You can even set a scene to turn your holiday lights on and off at set times – talk about convenience!
Like so many of us, you may be feeling a decline in your energy with the coming of winter. Perhaps you can’t sleep through the night or just aren’t feeling as sharp mentally. You may have seen talk on the news lately about wellness and how your circadian rhythm plays into this. As we spend more and more time indoors, we need to be conscious of keeping our bodies and minds in balance. By simulating the sun’s natural path through automated lighting, many sleep issues can be eliminated, mood disorders improved, and, as an added benefit, people often find themselves with far more energy.
Finally, lighting can just make things prettier and more festive. Things like additional landscape lighting and changing the color of your lights for special events can bring your holidays to life. Does your family have a favorite holiday movie that you enjoy together every year? Along with the hot chocolate and popcorn, adjust your lights to red and green for some added family fun.
The possibilities are truly endless with smart lighting. From setting the scene for a perfect Thanksgiving dinner to improving your overall health, lighting can have an immense impact on you and your family. With our certified lighting designer, Echo Workshop can help illuminate (sorry, couldn’t help myself) the whole process, from design to installation.
