This is Noon Home and it is one of the most impressive smart home upgrades that you can do today Noon Home will create professional lighting environments in your home with a simple swipe or tap I'm gonna tell you all about how it works in this episode And by the way, a big shout out to Noon Home for sending everything over and for sponsoring this video So let's jump in and talk about Noon Home

It's a pretty ingenious way to upgrade all of the lights in a room and turn them into smart lights without actually having to replace the lights themselves With Noon Home, instead of replacing all of your light bulbs with smart bulbs you replace the switches instead and the results are pretty spectacular Now, I'm sure you're curious so let's jump into how it all works First, you start by picking a room You probably wanna go with the area where you spend the bulk of your time

And for me, in my home, it's gonna be the open plan living room slash kitchen combo Once you've picked a room you're gonna wanna count all of your light switches For best results you wanna replace all the switches in the room with Noon switches To start, you're gonna need one Noon room director Which, by the way, is the absolute coolest light switch you've ever seen in your life

Along with the regular Noon extension switches to replace all the rest of your light switches And I've gotta reiterate that room director is super cool It's got a glass touch screen with built in OLED display, a motion sensor to activate night lights, and it can control up to 10 Noon extensions switches After you've got all the replacement switches installed you're gonna wanna make sure that they're all connected The Noon room director connects with every Noon extension switch wirelessly over Bluetooth low energy

That said, you can still use all the switches individually as you used to, but it's the Noon room director that'll control all the scenes and receive all the commands from your smart phone as well as any voice control devices Once you have the room director talking to all the Noon extension switches the Noon app goes to work figuring out all the different types of light bulbs you have plugged into each socket After the bulb types are determined you then go through one by one and tell the Noon app what type of fixture the bulbs are in This includes things like recess lighting, pendant lights, chandeliers, outdoor lights, and more This information is used by the Noon home system to determine the possibilities for lighting design in each room

From here, Noon automatically creates three different layered light scenes that you can use right away The first one is called bright, which turns on all the lights to full brightness The next is everyday, which creates an optimal setting for average usage And finally, there's relax which will only turn on select bulbs at a dim brightness Now, those are just the three scenes that Noon starts you off with but you do have free reign to create more scenes of your choosing

For example, as I mentioned, I am in a open planned kitchen slash living room so what I could do is set a cooking scene that turns on all the lights but leaves the lights in the living room dim and the lights in the kitchen turned up I can also set a movie night scene which would turn off the majority of lights in the living room, set a couple others to dim, and turn off all the lights in the kitchen except for the hanging pendant lights that would be right above the snacks And again, I switch between all these different scenes using a smart phone app, using voice control with Amazon Alexa, or with a simple swipe on the Noon room director And again, just to reiterate, you are not stuck with the scenes only you can still use all of your individual switches to turn lights off and on and even dim them directly from the Noon extension switches The Noon system does have a couple of other smart home features that you should be aware of

As I mentioned earlier, the Noon room director does have a built in motion detector so since it can sense motion if you're walking around in the dark it'll actually turn on lights to a super low, dimmed mode so that you can see where you're going There is also an automatic vacation mode that you can set up So, if you're gonna be away from the home any lights that are operated on your Noon system will turn off and on, mimicking how you use them when you're home I've gotta say, I am big fan the Noon system It is very expensive to replace all the lights in your home with smart light bulbs

And that's what you would need to do to get something similar, not even exact, but similar to what Noon can do Instead, with Noon you just replace the light switches themselves, leave all your light bulbs where they are, and instantly you've made all the lights in that room that much smarter If you wanna get started with Noon home in your home you can pick up the starter kit which includes one room director and two extension switches, along with a one, two, and three switch wall plate This sells for $39999

You can also pick up additional room directors for $19999, as well as additional extension switches for $9999 It is recommended that you have one room director in each room that you want to control with Noon So, there you have it guys
