As foreseen, we have moved back the clocks during the night between the 26th and the 27th of October. This brings joys as well as difficulties: on the one hand, we’ll have one additional hour to sleep, on the other hand, there are a lot of side effects due to the shorter days and "earlier" sunsets.
Nothing tragic, the story is the same every year. But still, the human body finds it hard to get used to it, and, it affects our mood quite significantly. Firstly, we produce less serotonin because we are less exposed to sunlight, thus making us feel weaker and grumpier than usual. Putting scientific evidence aside, we learned that during a nice and sunny day we are more willingly in a good mood, however when darkness falls at 5 PM with foggy weather this doesn’t bode well for us. The literature speaks also about exhaustion, migraine, lack of appetite, etc.
What can we do to brace ourselves for this change?
Keep the dark outside with iotty
Winter brings with it many changes, not only related to our personal habits but also those to our way of living in the house. For instance, it is essential to update a few devices around the house and turn on lights earlier. The installation of a smart switch like iotty can be of great help in the home lighting management, especially in autumn and winter. How does this happen?
It’s all quite simple. Once you connect the device to your home WiFi network, you can control all the lighting points directly from the app. You can also set up curious automated scenes based on your lifestyle: this allows you not only to set the times for switching lights on and off but also to activate the switch according to, for example, sunrise and sunset, thanks to the specific automation.
Another interesting feature is the Weather automation, which enables you to customize the lighting according to the weather conditions: increase/decrease of temperature, rain or sun, wind speed, and more.
iotty will make your home a small happy island where light is always the protagonist.
With iotty, you can keep the dark outside!
