Smart Lighting Series: Smart Recessed Lighting

Smart Lighting Series: Smart Recessed Lighting

The increase of smart home technology hasn’t left lighting behind. Smart lighting is growing in popularity, as more lighting manufacturers are developing innovative smart lighting options. Much of the appeal of smart lighting stems from its ease of automation. Using smart bulbs, for example, makes it easy to adjust lighting for multiple fixtures via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. Some options include programming a lighting schedule and even customizing both color and color temperature of a group of fixtures.

With the range of options available, it can be difficult to choose the right smart lighting for a space. For those interested in the benefits of smart lighting, but not ready for a complete overhaul of their lighting plan, smart recessed lighting is a good choice. In its versatility, smart recessed lighting can suit many spaces, and the benefits of smart technology add to its adaptability. The fixtures below present the utility of smart recessed lighting, making smart lighting a less overwhelming lighting update.

 Nora PRISM series


Nora Lighting’s PRISM Smart LED series, as explored in a previous post, highlights the customizability of smart recessed lighting. With 4”, 5” and 6” options, it can easily fit remodel or new construction applications. Able to change both the color of light and color temperature, Nora’s PRISM series makes it easy to create unique lighting designs. With its high CRI and color temperature options ranging from 2700K to 4000K, it guarantees high performance lighting at a variety of settings.

With its balance of functional lighting and smart technology, the Nora PRISM series showcases the adaptability of smart recessed lighting.

Like Nora’s PRISM series, Elite Lighting’s Smart Hue series features many customization options, and is easily adjustable through smart technology. Available in a 6” option, it expands from the lighting customization of Nora’s PRISM series.
