If you’re like me and turn your porch lights on after the sun goes down, it’s sometimes easy to forget to do it every night. However, if you have a Wink hub and a smart bulb or smart switch, you can have your porch light automatically turn on and off based on the sunset and sunrise schedule.
We’ve covered how to do something similar in the past, but that involves setting a specific time for lights to turn on and off. And since the sun sets and rises at vastly different times throughout the year (mostly thanks to daylight savings time), setting a specific schedule is not the best method when it comes to your outdoor lights. Instead, it’s better to automatically control lights based on when the sun rises and sets.
The Wink app has a newer feature named Moonlight that automatically turns on any lights when it gets dark outside. It’s mostly aimed at users who want to come home to a well-lit house at night, rather than having to fidget with light switches as they walk in.
