Smart lighting plays a huge role in the smart home—especially when it comes to creating a truly customized space that’s optimized for your personal schedule. Besides just illuminating a space, personalizing smart lighting features to suit your needs can help improve your daily life and habits! With our Nanoleaf Essentials and Nanoleaf light panels (Shapes, Elements, and Canvas), you can improve your daily schedule, helping you to boost your overall well-being and energy levels.
Get Better Sleep with Smart Lighting
As the days get shorter, it gets harder to stick to a healthy sleep schedule to maximize your productivity for the day—especially when it’s still dark at the start of your day.
Bring back some light into your mornings by letting your body naturally awaken to a simulated sunrise. Create custom light alarms in the Nanoleaf App or even schedule your lights to brighten over a period of 30 minutes to imitate the sun. Studies have shown that waking up gradually to light can help you feel more refreshed and boost your energy levels, helping to improve your overall mood throughout the day! All scheduling can be done with the Nanoleaf App for the Nanoleaf Shapes, Elements, and Lines or with the Apple Home App and Google Home App for Nanoleaf Essentials.
You can also use your lights to help you wind down at the end of the day by scheduling a preset Color Scene in the Nanoleaf App. With the “Bedtime” and “Sleep Mode” Scenes, your panels will display mellow and dim colors to help you get ready for bedtime. You can even schedule your lights to gradually dim down for a more natural way to ease your body to sleep. With the right lighting, you can make your morning and evening routines easier and help your body get the proper amount of rest needed to have a productive day.
Give Yourself Daily Reminders
With how busy our lives can get, it’s easy to let important aspects of our daily routines slip from our minds.
With Nanoleaf, have your lights turn on and off at specific times by setting schedules or reminders with the Schedules feature. Automate your lights to a certain color at specific times throughout the day as reminders for events or tasks. Have your lights switch to a vibrant red as a reminder to prep for an important meeting or to a bright yellow as a reminder to walk your dog. You can also set a Schedule to display a Lighting Scene for 10-15 minutes to remind you to take breaks throughout the day.
Create the Perfect Work From Home Environment
As working from home has become the new norm, creating the perfect home office is more important than ever. Access to innovative technology and tools are essential for our overall work from home productivity!
With your Nanoleaf lights, you can schedule your lights to automatically turn on and off to help organize your daily reminders, meetings or deadlines. You can even schedule specific Color Scenes to create the right lighting for focus, flow and break time, like the “Work From Home” playlist which displays bright whites to help with productivity. This is especially helpful for days that require a lot of focus to help you stay attentive and awake.
During your breaks, switch up your lighting and schedule the “Coffee Break” Scene that will fill your space with warmer browns and yellows to help you relax! These warm lights are perfect for creating a cozy and comforting atmosphere for a moment of relaxation.
With Nanoleaf smart lighting, you can create the right ambience for waking up or winding down, staying on track with your daily schedule, and even setting important reminders throughout the day. Having the ability to plan your daily schedule with your lighting is an incredible way to improve your daily life and energy levels, whether you’re looking to readjust your sleep schedule, improve your mood or even increase your overall productivity!
