But have you taken a moment to look up lately? At your lighting?

The newest wave in smart technology isn’t just in watches, phones, or for the home. Smart tech has slowly been improving as well as integrating with the world of warehouse, industrial, retail and factory lighting as well.  In fact, Warehouse Lighting, one of the leading online sources for today’s business lighting solutions, has many solid options for the forward-thinking business that wants to save the planet and a little money, too.

If you’ve not taken a look at some of the reasons why smart lighting is benefiting businesses all over the world, here are just a few reasons to consider it:

  • Measurable energy savings and return on investment. Changing your lighting to state of the art intelligent LED as well as using smart tech lighting solutions that allow you to control your lighting from a control hub like Amazon Alexa, for example, to control when the lights are used or even a motion detector could drive your energy savings up to 90%.  Over time, the return on your investment on smart lighting can more than justify the switch from traditional lighting.
  • Smart lighting means you could control every light from the palm of your hand or a central location. Instead of running around and trying to find all the light switches before closing hours, for example, a simple swipe of your palm or a spoken command could be all that’s needed to shut lights down. You could also adjust your entire building’s lighting system from a laptop, such as dimming lights depending on the time of day, outside light source, room occupancy, and traffic patterns.
  • Easy sustainability with smart lights. Intelligent lighting systems can be customized to your specific needs, with the ability to have both dynamic and remote light management to help further your company’s sustainability goals in a simpler manner. A growing number of states’, such as California, building efficiency standards are now required by law and smart lighting can help you meet them.

If you’ve not given thought to smart lighting, but think of your business or company as forward-thinking, it may be time to take a look at your options out there.

When A Stay At Home Mom Turns to a Cash Advance

If you’re like myself, you are probably a stay at home mom (or dad). Choosing this path in life is truly a rewarding experience. You get to stay at home with your family and experience all those important milestones such as first steps, first words and other major goals in a child’s life.

No matter how rewarding this lifestyle is, sometimes the unexpected can happen. An unexpected doctor’s visit, a car repair, or a home maintenance cost can pop out of nowhere and sometimes the money just isn’t there. After checking to see if there are any available credit cards that I can use or seeing if I can borrow the money from friends or family, I turn to what I call my last resort, a cash advance.

Cash advances are a wonderful fall back for those times when unexpected expenses appear. I use them only as a last resort because, depending upon the place that I use the cash advance, interest rate can be very high and cause you to pay a lot more on the money that you are being advanced. That is why a cash advance is usually my last resort for an emergency money supply.

If you are a stay at home parent and deciding if a cash advance is right for your situation, here are a few things that I take into account before taking an advance.

1. Can you get the money anywhere else such as a credit card, a family member, or even selling items at a pawn shop or on ebay?

2. Can the expense wait until payday?

3. How often have I used a cash advance?

4. Can I pay it back in a reasonable time?

As long as you think it through and use a cash advance responsibly, you’ll be able to get that little added help when an unexpected expense comes out of nowhere.
