Is smart light necessary?

What is the most frequently used smart device in a home? The answer is: lights and curtains! The current smart home market these two products are more mature than other smart devices, so the recent boom in the non-main lighting market has driven the development of the entire smart home, the number of non-main lighting applications is large, many scenes need to be intelligent to achieve, so smart lighting is necessary?

First of all, how do you understand lighting design? Is that all it takes is a few lights? In fact, lighting design is designed for light, but this is not to design the “appearance of light”, but to design the “feeling of space”. Through a variety of lighting methods, we create a comfortable space environment, to achieve the combination of “light” and “shadow”. Home lighting design needs to consider the details of a variety of factors, and finally make the “most suitable” decision, such as: architectural structure, interior space decoration style, artwork, visual effects tasks, etc.

Traditional way: Generally only install ceiling lights or decorative chandeliers in the middle of the room. Just the effect of lighting up the whole space.
Modern way: The traditional single light source, scattered arrangement through the light to create a variety of visual effects of space. More layers of space are reflected.

Lighting, as the fourth dimension of the indoor environment, is no longer a simple light for us, but more of a foil to the indoor space atmosphere and enhance people’s sense of experience of the space environment.

What are the lighting methods?
Basic lighting is to provide a bright and uniform lighting environment for a large area of space. The general requirements are bright, comfortable, no glare and even illumination. There are two main ways of basic lighting: direct and indirect: key lighting is the concentrated irradiation of light, which sets off a series of effects on sculptures, murals, flowers, etc. Suitable key lighting is conducive to highlighting the artistic taste and life atmosphere of the home. Functional lighting is an additional series of lighting for the work area on the basis of basic lighting, which is essential for learning, work, cooking, personal care and other fields, and it is also different from key lighting. Decorative (atmosphere) lighting is the use of different lamps and their location combination, so that the room shows different spatial effects. When the lighting contrast is strong, the space appears compact, and when the room is evenly lit, the space appears open.

Standard for smart lighting design
Proper illumination, these lighting is based on the standard of illumination.
1.Comfortable shadow, the combination of light and shadow, is the highest level of lighting design.
2.Comfortable color temperature, different scenes we need different color temperature
3.High color rendering, the degree of reduction of light to the color of the object, the performance of light with high color rendering index is very real, and on the contrary, the comparison of distortion, the requirements of home decoration for color rendering: the downlight requirements are above Ra>80.
4.No glare – soft indirect light, glare may be relatively unfamiliar, this can give you a popularization: glare is a field of vision with extremely high brightness objects or strong contrast, it will cause discomfort resulting in a phenomenon called glare. Simply put, all the discomfort of the light source is collectively referred to as glare, and the causes of glare are installation position, height and human eyes, so we must choose to learn anti-glare downlights when purchasing lamps.
5.The lighting scene changes, the lighting scene changes need to be controlled by smart devices, and smart lighting is needed here; We can use intelligence to control the scenes we want at will, including the lighting when the weather changes, and automate the execution of various scenes.
