The latest residential lighting systems employ fiber optics and LED (light-emitting diode) fixtures and bulbs to provide an impressive array of illumination options for homes. These systems can be controlled by simple touch commands on a smartphone or tablet. Bedroom, dining and entertainment room ceilings can be transformed into dazzling star fields, and basement or garage workplace areas can be programmed to replicate natural daylight. Mood-enhancing color tones can also be created to transform a room for various circumstances or occasions. For example, kitchen lighting can evolve from task enabling to holiday-hosting.

Perhaps the most appealing thing about LED light bulbs is their lifespan. They will last as much as fifty times longer than traditional incandescent bulbs. They also use less electricity to create relatively equal illumination, because their energy consumption is dedicated almost exclusively towards the production of light, rather than wasting a significant amount on the inefficient creation of unintended heat.
