Best Tips to Prepare for Back to School

With summer nearing the end and back-to-school season just around the corner, many students are prepping for the new school year. We know saying goodbye to summer is a bittersweet moment¬ — especially those late-night hangouts and morning sleep-ins. But the good news is that getting back to the daily grind doesn’t have to be hard!

While many students are back-to-school shopping, hitting all the back-to-school sales, and planning the perfect outfits, we created the ideal recipe featuring our Smart Wi-Fi RGBW LED Bulbs and LED Fairy Bulbs to have a successful school year.

Lighting that Works with Your Day

 

Start a Night Routine

Ease back into a bedtime routine by creating an automation that promotes relaxation. Use our Smart Wi-Fi LED RGBW Bulbs and select a golden tone. Warmer tones create a calm atmosphere signaling the body and mind time to sleep. It’s best to start doing this a few weeks before the first day of school to give your body time to adjust to a new sleep schedule.

Follow these easy steps to create a “Bedtime” ambiance with the Feit Electric app.

  1. 1. Open the Feit app
  2. 2. Tap Smart Scenes at the bottom of the screen and be sure you are on the Automation tab
  3. 3. Tap Create Scene or the plus (+) icon at the top right corner
  4. 4. Tap Schedule and select a bedtime, such as 9 p.m.
  5. 5. Tap Repeat and select Monday through Friday then, Next
  6. 6. Tap Run the device
  7. 7. Tap your Smart Bulb then Switch, ON and Save
  8. 8. Tap White Light, 2700K and brightness to 100% then, Next
  9. 9. Tap the 3 dots at the top right corner of the screen to rename your automation to Bedtime then Save

Helpful tip: You can have your lights gradually dim automatically by repeating these steps and decreasing the brightness level, going from full brightness to OFF.

 

Wake Up Energized

Say goodbye to sluggish mornings with lighting that jumpstarts your day by going for a cooler tone on the Feit app. Cool light with a blue tone creates an energizing environment which is essential to get you and the kids going for the day — because coffee isn’t always the most ideal way to wake up.

Start your morning the bright way by following these steps.

  1. 1. Open the Feit app
  2. 2. Tap Smart Scenes at the bottom of the screen and be sure you are on the Automation tab
  3. 3. Tap Create Scene or the plus (+) icon at the top right corner
  4. 4. Tap Schedule and select a bedtime, such as 6 a.m.
  5. 5. Tap Repeat and select Monday through Friday then, Next
  6. 6. Tap Run the device
  7. 7. Tap your Smart Bulb then Switch, ON and Save
  8. 8. Tap White Light, 6500K and brightness to 100% then, Next
  9. 9. Tap the 3 dots at the top right corner of the screen to rename your automation to Good morning then Save

Helpful tip: Set a schedule that turns OFF your lights automatically when you’re running out the door and don’t have time to manually turn them OFF. You can save time in the mornings by having your small appliances like your toaster, waffle maker, or coffee machine warming up before you get to the kitchen with our Smart Wi-Fi Plugs.

 

Be Productive

Get homework or other important projects done by staying productive and focused on the task at hand. Light that’s bright and crisp stimulates the brain and encourages you to get your assignments completed. Areas like the bedroom or living room can easily become areas of distraction so it’s important to set a time for doing homework and creating a designated work spot with an atmosphere that helps you feel motivated.

Stay productive all year by following these steps.

  1. 1. Open the Feit app
  2. 2. Tap Smart Scenes at the bottom of the screen and be sure you are on the Automation tab
  3. 3. Tap Create Scene or the plus (+) icon at the top right corner
  4. 4. Tap Schedule and select a bedtime, such as 6:30 p.m.
  5. 5. Tap Repeat and select Monday through Friday then, Next
  6. 6. Tap Run the device
  7. 7. Tap your Smart Bulb then Switch, ON and Save
  8. 8. Tap White Light, 4942K and brightness to 100% then, Next
  9. 9. Tap the 3 dots at the top right corner of the screen to rename your automation to Homework time then Save

Helpful tip: Control how much light you need by adjusting the brightness level of your lights on the Feit Electric app.

 

Make Time for Family

It shouldn’t be all work and no play. Break from your daily school tasks to clear your mind by spending time with family. Take a few minutes to catch up or enjoy a quick family hangout like watching TV or playing a game. Whatever it is, make sure your lighting matches the mood with color!

Glow Up Your Dorm Room

If you have kids heading off to college or, if you’re heading off to college yourself, make sure to pack the essentials, that includes lighting. Yes, lighting!

Create an eye-catching twinkling effect with LED Fairy Bulbs. We know as a college student you’ll be very busy. Bring along any of our Smart Wi-Fi LED Lights and conveniently control with your phone or with voice.
