Your Blueprint for AV, Security, and Home Automation Installations 

Maybe you’re building an all-new house for your family. Or perhaps you’re looking to upgrade the technology in your Wyoming home. Whether it’s a home theater, whole-home audio, security, or a smart home system, technology installations can be daunting to take on.

For the best results, a home technology project needs careful planning. If you toss together devices piece by piece over a few weekends, you’ll likely end up with a mishmash of equipment, hubs, and assistants that don’t communicate well.

Lift Your Spirits & Feel Better with Tunable Smart Lighting

After daylight savings in fall, it’s easy to feel a bit gloomy as the days are cut short. When it’s dark before dinner time, it seems like the hours pass by too quickly, bringing us into eternal nighttime. 

And when you’re spending more time indoors under artificial light, that can negatively affect your wellbeing. You’ve likely heard that looking at the blue light on computer screens and TVs isn’t good for our sleep and mental health. Well, the same applies to the light bulbs inside your house! 

If you’re living with lights that are too cool and bright at night, but too warm and dim during the day, you could be unintentionally souring your mood, tampering with sleep, and even causing headaches. 

But what is one to do? You can’t replace your lightbulbs twice a day. Luckily, as technology moves forward, we’re now able to light our homes more properly. Circadian lighting, also referred to as tunable lighting and human-centric lighting, can help you feel your best at home and work in Casper, WY. 

Technology that’s good for us? It may sound hard to believe. Below, we share why circadian lighting by brands like USAI and Savant is such a valuable feature to enjoy at home.
