What do you suppose Thomas Edison would think about today's Athens smart lighting? Starting from his simple carbon-filament bulb, we now have access to integrated home automation components that allow you to manipulate all your home's light sources via your phone. But before you rush off and buy the most recent system, expand your knowledge a bit, so you know what you're trying out.

Use the platform you're used to

Many home automation configurations work with a variety of platforms that can manage your smart lighting in Athens, but it makes sense to stay with something you’re familiar with . For instance, if you have an Android cell phone, you would likely opt for a set up compatible with Google. You could also select Amazon’s Echo which gives you the ability to use vocal commands through your speaker. Keep in mind, if you have a Vivint home security system, your smart home mobile app will function with Google, Apple, and Amazon's platforms.

Should you include a smart hub?

You have the option of buying a couple lights that connect straightforwardly with your home network, but you will miss out on some safety and convenience advantages. Vivint’s Smart Home Automation will integrate into your home’s security when you require the most versatile performance from your Athens smart lighting.

It just makes sense to connect to a smart hub and associate your lights with a smart doorbell, door and window sensors, or other home defense devices. By doing so your lights can automatically illuminate if an outside camera senses unexpected developments. Or make your lights go down while your security alarms arm before bed.

You have control over your Athens smart lights

The ability to customize a unique schedule is a nice advantage of your Athens smart lighting. Practically all smart lighting can be controlled in various manners, providing you the versatility to turn them on or off when you want. You may even have them run on a timer, turn them on or off based on the specific times of sunrise and sunset, or create numerous customized schedules to accommodate your unique requirements. When using the Vivint home automation and security app, you can have your lights do what you like and at the right time, including lowering or illuminating based on a set routine.

Smart lighting is inexpensive and energy efficient

Smart LED light bulbs are much more energy-efficient than what you previously had in your home and aren't hot to the touch. You might increase your money savings by utilizing a smart hub, motion sensing, the Vivint cell phone app, or linking with your home’s complementary smart home components. You are able to create a unique lighting configuration in your very own residence that uses and saves energy like never before.

Then expand beyond smart lighting

One of the great benefits of the Vivint smart home concept is it’s all-encompassing, including not only smart lighting but front door cameras, smart locking systems, inside and outside surveillance, connected thermostats, garage door controls, and an array of other conveniences. If you have complete control of your property’s defense systems and automation, your home is more secure than ever before.
