Honda Smart Home Lighting Technology

First of all, Honda & UC Davis researchers studied the direction of sunlight and shade to reduce the cost of home temperature settings. They also use a three-layer window, double-wall construction, special roof, and special materials such as concrete are given pozzolan and post-tensioning to reduce its carbon footprint. The Honda Smart Home, using lamps with LED lighting technology. Lighting technology allows occupants to adjust the temperature of the lamp as needed. If you can easily adjust the color of the lights, the house owner can browse around home easily and safely at night, then back to rest.
