Achieve a comfortable sleep with smart lighting. Would you like to prepare your “preparation for sleep” routine?

This year, when the number of “households” has increased due to self-restraint from going out, many people may want to reorganize their home environment where they spend a long time. This time, I will introduce the “recommended usage during sleep” that utilizes smart speakers and + Style smart LED bulbs and bedside lamps.


Challenge smart lighting!

The author’s home is a 1LDK condominium with a large living room and bedroom. I have installed Amazon Echo in the living room for several years, but I use it every day, such as “Alexa, play J-WAVE with radio!” When I want to listen to the radio, and “Alexa, 5” while cooking. Only voice control such as “Measure!”

I’m sure there are many people who say, “I tried to introduce a smart speaker because it’s been talked about, but I don’t use it after all.” It wasn’t done.

Since I have had time to refrain from going out these days, I decided to introduce smart lighting in my bedroom, which I hadn’t touched before. We installed ” Smart LED Light Bulb (Dimming / Toning) / E26 ” and ” + Style LED Bedside Lamp (Dimming / RGB Toning) ” for pendant light type lighting .

I connected the Google Home Mini that my friend gave me to a light bulb/lamp so that I could control the lighting with my voice. Is it difficult to connect a light bulb? I was worried, but the “+ Style” app is easy to use, and you can easily connect by following the guide.

I installed a pendant light (light bulb x 2) and a bedside lamp.


Switching is important for “household”

By the way, the fact that the lighting can be operated by voice makes me think “how should I use it?” As a result of spending more time working at home due to refraining from going out, I have recently been worried that I cannot switch between work mode and relax mode well.

Originally, my house was supposed to be a place to relax, but now that it’s a place to work, I’ve been heading to my PC until just before going to bed. Originally, I was worried that I couldn’t sleep well, so I thought about a way to solve this.

When investigating how to improve sleep, he said, “It is important to switch from sympathetic nerve dominance to parasympathetic nerve dominance.” There are many ways to do this,

  • Gradually reduce the illuminance at night
  • Use warm colors
  • Play slow tempo music, etc.
  • Make “routines” before falling asleep such as stretching

Etc. were introduced. But it’s a hassle to operate these operations every night, right? Therefore, the key is the cooperation between + Style home appliances and smart speakers.

Enter relaxing time with “OK Google, ready to sleep”

Until now, when I came to the bedroom after taking a bath, I kept the lights on at 100%, and after looking at my smartphone for a while in bed, I turned off the lights and went to bed. This time, using the + Style app and the Google Home app, I created a routine that behaves as follows “preparation for sleeping”.

  • Lighting to 10% brightness
  • Bedside lamps are also 10% bright
  • The bedside lamp is light bulb color
  • Play tomorrow’s weather

With the lights in the room turned off like this, I thought I should do yoga and stretching while watching YouTube videos. You can also listen to tomorrow’s weather and think about what to wear the next day.

Finally, we will create a “good night” routine to turn off the lights.

  • Turn off the lights
  • Bedside lamps are also off
  • Play the sound of the sea with “Sleep Sound” (low volume)

With this, it seems that you can spend “preparation to sleep” → “sleep” gracefully.


Satisfaction with a “careful life”

It’s been a few days since I made a routine. After getting out of the bath and heading to the bedroom and saying “OK Google, ready to go to bed”, stretching and yoga for about 10 minutes in a room with the lights turned off makes me feel like I’m living a very polite life. ..!

I usually spend a lot of time watching SNS on my smartphone and slapstick, but in this way, “I’m working and caring for myself” makes me feel satisfied.

Furthermore, if you try to play the sound of the ocean waves after “OK ​​Google, good night”, this is extremely comfortable. When I close my eyes and listen to the sound of the waves, it feels like a travel destination. By matching the rhythm of the waves and breathing, I often fell asleep.

When you say “good night”, the lights go out in order. It is convenient to be able to operate with your voice while lying down!


“Incense” is also added, and “preparation to sleep” with all five senses

It’s become more fun to get ready to go to bed, so I’ll try to use “incense” for a more comfortable routine.

At the same time as turning off the lights, spray the recently purchased THE PUBLIC ORGANIC pillow mist on the bedside. This pillow mist is specially made for sleeping and waking up comfortably. “FALL ASLEEP”, which has the effect of improving sleep, has a scent of cypress and cedar wood. When I selected “Forest” from the preset sounds in “Sleep Sound” of Google Home and played it together, I felt like sleeping in a hut in the forest.


The sleep sound of Google Home is full of natural sounds. You can enjoy an immersive feeling when combined with the scent.


By using smart lighting, using “light”, “sound”, and “incense” to prepare for “sleeping” from the five senses, I can fall asleep better and wake up refreshed in the morning.

In this way, if you carefully prepare your house for a long time, you will feel less impatient and feel that you can relax your shoulders and spend your time in your own way. Now that “home time” has increased, we highly recommend “making good sleep habits” using smart lighting and smart speakers!
