A Beginner’s Guide to Whole-House Smart Lighting



This guide aims to simplify the process of implementing whole-house smart lighting by providing three primary sections: preparatory steps for pre-construction, renovation solutions for existing homes, insights to streamline the smart lighting setup. Whether you’re considering revamping your home’s lighting system, this content will help eliminate most of the hassles.

The three recommendations for renovating whole-house smart homes are:

· Choose the right smart home platform for your home

There are plenty of smart lighting devices in the market and choosing the right automated solutions for your home will help you sort out the problem that different platforms are not available to across to interact with each other. In this situation, Yeelight Pro Mesh technology can realize cross-platform interaction, integrated with the major AIoT platforms in the world, such as Google, Alexa, Homekit, Mi Home, and so on, which improves compatibility between different smart home manufacturers, and also allows for the Matter as an option. As the common connectivity technologies, Matter is a very new protocol and is currently being developed, which means all home automation smart devices that support Matter can achieve interoperability and bring more possibilities. For example, the device in Yeelight Pro will be synchronized to the Homekit, and the smart scenes that have already been set up can also be synced directly through the Mesh gateway. There is no doubt that it’s convenient for pre-renovation or post-renovation users.

Otherwise, Yeelight Pro mesh technology is extremely stable, which can enable each device node to communicate with each other and the speed of response is almost the same as the wired mode, which supports up to 150 devices in one single control. Only one Bluetooth gateway can realize the whole-house smart control whether in a villa or high-ceiling apartment.

· Reserve Neutral wire for Smart Switch

Generally speaking, choosing smart lighting and original traditional switches can realize smart control, but the problem is when you turn off the wall switches, it will appear in a situation where lighting can not be controlled causing the whole circuit to close. To solve problems like this, modern smart home solutions are using traditional lighting with smart switches, and the advantage of that is the lighting is always online and you can control it at any time. However, this solution also has problems. It can realize the control of the circuit on and off, but can not realize the adjustment of color temperature and brightness on different scenes. Therefore, using smart lights with scene switches is a good choice. Smart lights can realize ” single light, single control,” the color temperature and brightness can be infinitely adjusted, and the lighting mode of actual needs can be personalized to meet different scene needs whether in working or relax mode. Wiring neutral lines for switches ensures cost-effectiveness and stability, especially concerning smart switches or scene switches, eliminating concerns about flickering issues associated with single-wire switches, and it is necessary for smart switches or scenes.

· Choose the rational smart lighting design

Irrational illuminance gives no space compartmentalization and is unable to meet the lighting needs in different scenarios. Yeelight lighting design team provides users with professional lighting design and caters to all personalized scenes based on the user’s house, family members, and living habits. Our lighting design program includes user research. Design analysis, CAD-based lighting point layout, and Dialux light environment simulation, which makes personalized smart lighting design easier.

Therefore, additional scene settings can be added to enhance the daily experience in your smart home. Scene control involves linking various devices to execute more automated functions, such as turning on the living room light when a door sensor is triggered or activating a night light upon detecting movement using motion sensors, or even entertainment mode for post-work relaxation and party mode for vibrant dining experiences. These scene controls cater to diverse needs, elevating the experience of whole-house smart lighting.

In conclusion, when navigating the smart home market for smart lighting solutions, it’s essential to consider not just the features but also the compatibility, ease of use, and long-term benefits. By making informed decisions and selecting lighting fixtures that align with your lifestyle and preferences, you’re not just investing in convenience but also in enhancing your living environment.
