As we grow more conscious of our personal impact on the environment, so do the devices we bring into our home. Many household appliances now come with star ratings, giving you the ability to make informed choices about how much energy your home uses. But did you know that switching to LEDs can significantly reduce your environmental footprint?

The LIFX Original Smart Light uses a maximum of 17 watts while emitting a massive 1,000 lumens of brightness. That’s a bright light, in fact it’s equivalent of a 75 watt incandescent bulb while only using around 22% of the power. And now with the added benefit of smart technology, we can take our energy savings to the next level with these handy tips and tricks:

  • - LIFX lights are bright. So bright in fact, that you can dim your lights all way down to 50% and still have enough light for your home while saving on energy.
  • - Create schedules to turn your lights off automatically at times you know that no one is home, that way you’re never paying for energy you’re not using.
  • - Use IFTTT. Create a recipe to turn your lights off automatically when the sun rises and enjoy that natural warmth.
  • - Did you know you can control your LIFX lights from anywhere with an internet connection? Check if your family has turned off the lights from work with your smart device.
