This is a bestseller for our luxury home technology team, and it’s easy to see why. By automating lighting in the home, you can boost your productivity and improve your sleep. Consider automating low lights to turn on gently as you approach your natural waking up time, or adjusting this for weekends.
You can also adjust brightness depending on your activities, for example bright lighting for maximum productivity in home studies, or winding down into the evening. SONA’s luxury lighting systems can be synchronised with music, for example in home gyms, or with different colours to create mood effects in swimming pools and home cinemas.
These go hand in hand with automated lighting. Once you’ve tried automating blinds, you’ll never want to go back! Automated blinds provide extra reassurance when you’re out at work or away on holiday. You can pair them with automated lights to create a look of presence in the home.
There are also the safety and energy-saving benefits. If you’ve got little ones running around, these cordless systems prevent accidents. Plus, keep an eye on your energy bills by allowing natural light into the home and keeping key areas insulated.
