    Bedtime Routine

    Tip 1: Use Light to Readjust Your Kids' Bedtime Routine


    Smart lighting can help provide the structure and support you need to get your kids in bed on time.  Simply use your Hue app to set a weekday routine to turn the lights to the Relax pre-set scene an hour before bedtime - creating the perfect environment to help your kids wind down.

     

    Pro tip

     

    A simple way to help kids fall asleep is to set a timer for lights out.  Go to the Hue app, select the "Go to Sleep" routine and schedule the fade out timer.  Your lights will gradually dim down and turn off, gently easing the kids to sleep. 

    Study Time

    Tip 2: Use Cool Shades of Light
    During Study Time


    You can help your children focus on their studies by exposing them to cool white lighting (or "daylight"). According to Harvard Health*, blue wavelengths can boost attention, reaction times and mood. To support good study habits, put on the Concentrate light scene in your Hue app.

     

    Pro tip

     

    To make sure the kids are fully awake and ready for the day, enjoy your family breakfast in a cool white. The cooler tones of the Philips Hue Energize light scene will help the whole family feel refreshed and more alert before they head off to school.

    Tip 3: Steer Clear of Blue Light at Night for a More
    Restful Sleep


    The same Harvard study* also documents that cooler, blue-toned light suppresses melatonin production, which can throw your circadian rhythm out of whack. In short, the science here points to one thing: to help have a more restful night's sleep, stay away from blue light (like phones, screens or actual blue lights) after sundown.

     

    Pro Tip

     

    Starting two hours before bedtime, turn down all your lights to a warmer, amber-toned light. Also, make sure you adjust smartphone screens to a warm light as well (available on most smartphones).
