Thanks to the universality of wireless technology it's now possible to control your lighting in many new ways; smart lighting can welcome you home, wake you up and even help get you energised. You can adjust the brightness to wind down before bed and if you’re already tucked in and realise you left the kitchen lights on, simply turn them off on your smartphone. You can even use smart lighting with timers and notifications to your phone – a great way to save energy and keep an eye on your usage. A popular choice is the Philips Hue range with a flexible range of settings and compatibility with Apple HomeKit, Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa.
