'Wow’ Your Holiday Guests With Smart Technology
Brighten Your Holiday Season With LED Lighting
Think back to your earliest memories of the holidays. What do you remember? The smell of gingerbread cookies wafting from the oven? The sound of Christmas carols sung around the tree? Whatever you're picturing in your head, lights are most likely an undeniable aspect of this memory. Hung around the tree and throughout the house, both inside and out, lights turn a home into a shimmering winter wonderland, which helps sell the season when there’s no snow in St. Petersburg.
As you welcome guests into your home for your holiday gatherings, you can use smart lighting technology to astonish them with rich LED lighting that you control with the push of a button on your smartphone. Keep reading to learn how this smart home feature can enrich your holiday festivities.
Discover the Flexibility of LED Lighting
Smart LED bulbs give you unprecedented control over the brightness, temperature, and color of the light in your home, all of which can be easily adjusted from your smart home control system (more on that later). What are some of the ways you can take advantage of this during the holidays?
To start, you can fill rooms with specific seasonal colors. Go with an autumnal palette of orange, yellow, and red for Thanksgiving, then switch to green and red shades for Christmas celebrations. Instead of using candles, have the lights in your chandelier emit a soft glow that creates a warm atmosphere. Showcase holiday displays on your mantle and in other areas of your home with LED lightstrips, and backlight your Christmas tree to make it an even more dazzling centerpiece for living space.
