If you’re familiar with MagicLight smart lightbulbs, you’re more than likely familiar with some of the advantages of smart lighting. You never have to worry about fumbling for light switches, or setting mood lighting, instead, you can program the bulb to do this for you!
But did you know that smart lighting actually has benefits to your heath as well? It’s true!
Less Accidents, Falls, and Collisions
With smart lighting, you have complete control over your MagicLight smart bulbs with your phone. Since most of us are constantly within arm’s reach of our device, this means that we can turn lights on and off, change the intensity and set the color – all with the push of a button.
While this seems like a convenience more than anything, think about not having to fumble in the dark for a light switch when you get up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom. The CDC provided a study that states over 700,000 hospitalizations occur each year due to a fall, and 20% of these accidents happen due to low light or lack of light. While you probably try to navigate your home in the dark instead of waking your partner, roommate, or children with a bright light; you can set your light to a dim intensity, and a soft color that will allow you to safely navigate your home.
Help Your Mental Health
Many Americans suffer from anxiety. We’ve all experienced anxiety at some point in our lives… wondering if we’d aced an exam, if we owe taxes, or if we turned off the stove. Well, with MagicLight, you never have to worry about leaving on the lights on (or off) when you’re not home! You can easily check your lights from anywhere in the world with our variety of WiFi bulbs like our newest Triangle Smart Bulb.
Extra Home Security
The other perk to controlling your home lighting from anywhere? Extra security. Our Smart bulbs will allow you to set timers from your smart phone. You can set your lights to turn on and off at certain times of the day or night. Let’s say you leave on vacation for a week and want to make it appear like someone is home by turning on your lights a few times at night. You can either set a timer, or manually turn the lights on/off while on the beach in Hawaii sipping a Mai Tai. This gives the impression that someone is home at all times, even when you’re not in the house!
How is this possible? Our WiFi bulbs connect to your homes internet connection. After creating an account, simply log into your bulbs from your phone and you’re in full control!
Start Your Day Off Right
No one likes to start their day with a blinding light in our faces. In fact, for those of us that are not morning people (I’m raising my hand right now), the thought of waking up to an alarm is a terrible thing. However, with a MagicLight smart bulb, you can set your bedroom light to mimic the rising sun… which, as science shows, will help you start your day off on the right foot.
They’re referred to as “dawn simulators” or “sunrise simulator” and what they do is simply mimic the rising sun directly in your bedroom. This kicks in your melatonin and cortisol levels in your body, allowing yourself to wake up in a natural way.
Set the Light to Your Mood
One of the best parts of owning MagicLight smart bulbs, is the ability to set your lighting exactly how you like it in each individual room. If you’re not feeling a bright, cool light? Turn the living room light down to a warm glow.
If you’re mood has been a little off lately, set your MagicLight to help you increase, and improve your mind. Studies have shown that light plays a huge part in depression. The CDC actually produced a study showing that bright light can increase the symptoms of depression, while dimmer lighting provides calmer, more rational mindsets.
Your MagicLight can also be used to help with seasonal affective disorder by assisting with your daily dose of light.
With all of these great health benefits in addition to smart bulbs just being a really awesome feature in your home, who wouldn’t want to try them? Tell us your favorite part of your MagicLight bulbs in the comments below!
