Why buy a smart light bulb?
It's no secret that lighting can have many positive effects on both mood and general wellbeing – red light can help release melatonin to aid sleep, purple light is seen to be more peaceful, orange can help increase brain activity to help you concentrate and yellow light is known as the depression killer. Blue light has been said to help treat migraines, too, and it's apparently the world's favourite colour. Who knew?
A smart lightbulb isn't just for those who have sleeping problems – if you want a dimmable light but don't want to start faffing with your electrics, a smart bulb is the way to go. And then there's the obvious fact that you won't have to get up from your bed to turn the light off at night. That being said, if you're someone who constantly presses snooze, you can time your lightbulb to turn on at the time your alarm goes off, making it pretty hard for you to oversleep. And if you struggle to fall asleep every night and find yourself counting thousands of sheep, turn your smart bulb to red half an hour before bedtime, or start dimming it a few hours beforehand. The LIFX lightbulb also has other features to simulate sunrise and sunset, and there's strobe option in there for our party-loving readers.
