In the winter I love to sleep in a cold bedroom around 17° – but it doesn’t make it easier to get up in the morning. So what I have done is I have bought a STELLAZ Thermostat and taken one of my Philips HUE lights to generate a sunrise in my bedroom. So far I am using my Indigo Domotics to set the alarm for when I want to get up. Two hours before the alarm I start heating my bedroom to 21° and 20 minutes before the alarm i slowly turn up the light from a dark blue going to purple then orange and finally white until it is at 65%
So far I think this has been the home automation project that has meant most for my everyday life, and of course I reverse it in the evening to create a sunset.
