As a dad I have to say that I am always looking to find ways to save money. While some may say that I am cheap, I would say that I am thrifty and looking for ways to stretch my dollar as far as I can. Lately technology has continued to get better allowing for people like me to save even more money with my utilities.
I recently heard about a brand new brand that was offering smart lighting that is responsive to you and to your home. Stack Lighting is a two-year old startup that makes light bulbs packed with sensors that respond to sunlight, occupancy, and motion. This sounded like an amazing bit of technology that I was very interested in trying for myself. Luckily I was able to try out three of the bulbs to take over the three bulbs that I have in my kitchen. The starter pack actually comes with two bulbs, but you can purchase individual bulbs to finish off a number of other sockets too.
When these bulbs arrived I found them to well packaged. They look VERY sleek and modern, and they were very easy to install into the sockets that I had. Once installed I found that I simply needed to install the application that was available for IOS or Android devices. The installation was simple and once installed I easily was able to connect this to my WIFI network and to the bulbs themselves.
The application itself was very easy to use and it allows you to set your lights to work on a schedule if you choose or to provide a certain type of light too. You can warm up the room, cool down the room and more. What was even better though was the fact that the bulbs were responsive to motion and to the occupancy within the room. Thus, when you walk into the room while the light may be muted when you enter, if you stay within the room, the lights become brighter until you leave and then they will decrease again.
