Unlike smart door locks, smart light bulbs do not prevent intrusion. They can’t monitor our home or show us what’s going on either. And they can’t even send alerts for any unusual activity. But they’re surprisingly effective at discouraging potential intruders from targeting our unoccupied home.
When we’re away from home, the very first security measure is to make our homes look normal at night. The home lights should turn on before dark, turn off before sleeping, turn on room lights randomly and so on. This is the ‘away mode’ in smart light app which gives the illusion that someone is at home.
With smart light app, we can monitor whether the lights are on as scheduled. We can turn them on and off manually as needed. We can also use smart motion detectors to turn on smart door lights automatically whenever someone is approaching. In fact, smart light is an excellent at creating the right atmospheres for work from home, entertainment and anything in between.
