How Can a Lighting Control System Enhance Your Lifestyle?

From Convenience and Savings to Security, Ambiance and More

As we stroll into 2019, many of us are taking time to reflect and set new intentions for the upcoming year. No matter your resolutions, a lighting control system can help you achieve your goals by adding more convenience to your day-to-day routines, increasing your home security, decreasing your electric bill, and enhancing the ambiance of your home.

We’re always striving to help our customers to live better with smart upgrades to their homes. That’s why we want to share with you the benefits of a lighting control system and how those benefits can help you strive in 2019 and beyond. Just keep reading to learn more.

Added Convenience

Instead of the one switch per light paradigm that most of us grew up with, smart lighting control systems shift the paradigm to scene based control.  Single buttons can operate one or many lights and set them at preset dim levels.  A “Home” button just inside your garage entry door can illuminate your home just how you like it when you arrive home.  A “Sleep” button near your bedside can turn all of your lights off when you retire at night.  Perhaps you don’t like pressing buttons at all.  You can configure lighting scenes to occur at particular times or events.  Turning your security system right before going to bed can trigger the “Sleep” scene thus turning off all the lights.  Arriving home at night and entering your home through your garage entry door could trigger the “Home” scene.  The options are endless but the goal is to simplify it as you best see it

Better Quality of Light

You’ve probably experienced how your artwork appears differently in different light.  The color and brightness of lighting on art makes a world of difference.  Too bright and the colors get washed out.  Too little light and the colors don’t come out at all.  A good lighting control system incorporates very granular control of light brightness.  You can determine the desired brightness once,  lock it in, and it will always come on to that level when desired.

Energy Savings

A lighting control system’s added convenience also means more savings on electricity. Lighting accounts for about 20 percent of the average homeowner’s electric bill, making it a key energy-saving opportunity. With scheduled lighting, motion sensor switches, and dimming control, you can save significantly on electricity and lower your carbon footprint in the process.

Increased Security

Setting scheduled scenes with your lighting control system is a great way to gain peace of mind while you’re away from home. Scheduled scenes can mimic your daily routines to make it look as though your family is home, keeping potential intruders at bay while you travel. You can even integrate your smart lighting with your alarm system to send alerts to your phone and the authorities if unwanted activity is detected by your motion-sensor lights.

Enhanced Ambiance

Set the mood for any occasion with smart lighting. Dim and increase the temperature (color) of your lights for a calming atmosphere when you’re winding down for the evening and brighten them back up when you’re ready to start your day.

Inviting people over for a movie in your home theater? Set your light scene to “Movie” and watch as your lights go dark for the occasion. Have a new art installation in your home? Use tunable LEDs to illuminate your art and change colors at your command for added enhancement. Whatever the flair, a lighting control system caters to your style and helps brings more personality to your home.
