Live Your Life in Color with Smart and Controllable RGB Lighting


Learn 3 of our ideas for using color-changing lights to infuse your days with fun

Enough articles about how lighting control is “convenient” and “energy-efficient” and “practical” — let’s talk about how much FUN lighting control can be. One of our favorite smart trends is using RGB lighting to bring a splash of color and unique customization to homes of all shapes and sizes. RGB LEDs combine red, blue, and green in one module to create and generate over 16 million hues of light. 

When you integrate RGB lights into a home lighting control system, you suddenly have an entire color palette at your fingertips. With the press of a button on your smartphone, you can send vibrant colors to bathe every room in your home. Sound fun? Read on below to learn three ways to use color-changing lights to brighten up your day-to-day at home!

Create Mood Lighting for Movies, TV Shows, and Gaming 

Infuse your home theater or media room with bright colors that complement movies, TV shows, sports, and video games to set the ambiance for your entertainment. Wash the whole room in color using overhead or indirect lighting fixtures or concentrate color around screens, artwork, or décor with backlighting and accent lighting.

Kick off a Harry Potter movie marathon by lighting up your entertainment room in Gryffindor red and gold or Slytherin green and silver. With a lighting control system, you can save presets of all four House colors and change them from movie to movie. When basketball season rolls around, game day has you rooting for the Jazz from your Bountiful, UT, home. Amp up the excitement for the game by bringing blue, gold, and green tones to the lights in your media room or theater.

Throw a Themed Party (Or Any Party!)

In our humble opinion, showing off your color-changing lights is a good enough reason as any to throw a great house party! Before guests arrive, set the mood throughout your house with the help of your RGB color palette. If you’re throwing a spooky Halloween party, get creative with bright oranges, deep reds, and eerie purple tones in the primary party areas. Having a 4th of July barbecue with family and friends? Coordinate red, white, and blue lighting indoors to the fireworks you’re setting off outdoors. 

No matter what kind of party you’re throwing, color-changing lights bring bursts of fun, whimsy, and joy to your spaces and encourage guests to relax and have a good time. And if you land on a color scheme you love, save it as a scene in your lighting control app to use for the next get-together.

Match the Lighting to Your Day

Use the RGB lights in your home to set the vibe for your day. Do you like to start the morning with yoga and meditation in the living room? Bathe the room in shades of soft blue or rose for calm, peace, and serenity. Are you having a mid-afternoon slump? Throw on some music and set the lights to an energizing red or purple. With RBG lights, you can live your life in all the colors of the rainbow. 

We hope this blog inspired your creative side for fun home lighting ideas. And there’s more to come about RGB lighting — up next, we’ll explore how you can use color-changing lights to highlight your home’s beautiful artwork. So stay tuned in the upcoming weeks!
