          What is smart home lighting?

          Just like other connected devices, light bulbs can now be operated and controlled via an app on your smartphone. And unlike standard bulbs, smart lighting lets you determine each bulb’s brightness and ‘temperature’ ­– making it easier than ever to set the perfect mood at home.


          How does smart lighting work?

          Smart bulbs are wireless lights meaning they are all wirelessly connected to a central system like TRÅDFRI – the gateway between the bulbs and the internet. Once connected to the Wi-Fi network, you can control smart lighting using your smartphone, tablet or smart assistant.


          Do smart lighting systems save money?

          Smart light bulbs are typically a bit more expensive (taking into account the gateway or bridge needed to support them) than standard incandescent bulbs. However, they’re much more energy efficient, and last a lot longer.

          A 60W incandescent bulb releases 90% of its energy through heat radiation, whereas LED bulbs give off almost no heat at all, allowing an impressive, cost-effective, lifespan. Smart light bulbs can last more than 25,000 hours (over 1,000 days), compared to the incandescent bulbs’ 1,000 – 2,000 hours. They’re also tougher, with no fragile filament inside.
