Turn the Lights Down Low n’ Slow
It is no secret that lighting decides the atmosphere of a room. On a day as romantic as Valentine’s Day, make sure to really paint your loved one in a golden hue. Your smart home is a capable companion when it comes to slowly dimming the lights with a voice command, or a sneaky tap in your Lightwave App if you want to really surprise your partner. The night doesn’t finish once the dishes are done, but we will leave the rest up to you…
Things Are Heating Up
As you are busy chopping, dicing and baking, set your smart thermostat to warm up your home before your partner arrives. Let your helpful smart speaker take care of that by saying “Alexa, turn up the heat to 22 degrees”. After running in from the cold February evening, embrace your loved one not just with a tight hug, but also a warm home.
Music For The Soul
Take the faff out of the evening and instead of continuously queueing songs, create a romantic playlist to set the tone. Start with something subtle to have in the background, transitioning to old school classics for a slow-dance and finish off with something fiery. Whether you’re into smooth jazz or groovy tunes, here are some of Lightwave’s favourites to get your evening off to a good start:
“Make You Feel My Love” by Adele
“Just The Way You Are” by Billy Joel
“When A Man Loves A Woman” by Percy Sledge
“How Deep Is Your Love” by Bee Gees
“Let’s Get It On” by Marvin Gaye
The Final Touches
With the lights down low, sprinkle some of the most romantic colours all around your house by changing the LEDs on your Lightwave Smart Dimmers and Sockets to either pink or red.
Create A Scene
If you are preparing a 3 course meal, or need extra cooking time if the culinary arts are just not your forte, you can let your home handle all the automations so that you can put your entire focus into dinner. In your Lightwave App, create a routine which will unite the lighting, heating, music and the changing of the dimmer light colour so that you can perfect your delicious meal for two. Name the routine “Happy Valentine’s Day”, so that when your partner gets home you can just say “Alexa, Happy Valentine’s Day” and let the evening begin.
Google Home Routine
Keep the routine you’ve created for future evenings in with your loved one and have an integrated romantic experience whenever the moment strikes.
Happy Valentine’s Day from the Lightwave Team!
