By adding ambiance and life, it can completely transform a space. What’s more, you can beautify your space by adding a few smart technologies. So many rapid transformative changes are occurring in the lighting world (from artificial sunrises to the latest LiFi technologies), it’s hard for anyone to keep up. Here, we collect the most exciting lighting technology trends that go far beyond standard on/off lights.

1. Wake up to an artificial sunrise

Do you find it hard to wake up in the morning? If so, your lighting might be the reason. Set up the faded lighting mode available through the Hue app (for Android and iOS) or use the Lifx app (for Android and iOS) smart lightbulb. Simply adjust the brightness, fade the speed and color, and enjoy a scheduled sunrise in your room.

2. Light up your music

If you are looking for a cool feature to impress party guests, use the Light DJ app (for Android and iOS) to create a memorable experience in which the light adjusts to the music. Light DJ will "listen" to the music coming through the phone's microphone and adjust the lights according to your color preferences.

3. Broadcast the current weather

Technologies such as voice commands and IFTTT allow your apps and devices to talk to each other. For example, Philips Hue or Lifx light bulbs can imitate the current weather conditions. Another option is to use an IOT device such as QM weather. The minimalist design ensures that you will feel the weather with the color expression of the temperature outside.
