One of the most important conveniences of an automated home is the lighting control. From creating ambiance, security and comfort to utilization of the home and saving energy, this is one of the best investments you can make.From the time you wake, to the time you go to bed, you utilize your lights. Imagine with a single push of a button, having all of your lights turn on to a specified level. As you walk through the home the lights turn on as you enter a room and turn off as you leave. Before guests arrive you no longer wander the home to get the perfect lighting, simply press a button and the home is ready…the perfect light level…every time.
Even when you are not at home, the yard and porch lights turn on and off automatically at dusk and dawn, interior lights randomly cycle on and off, making it seem as if you are at home. If your room has multiple light loads, then there are typically multiple switches on the wall; with a lighting system this is no longer the case. Up to six switches can be replaced by a single elegant keypad, making the home easier to control with an overall cleaner appearance.
Lighting control not only alters the mood of the environment, but also saves energy. You can highlight artwork or dim each area to very precise levels, so that the home is comfortable and impressive. Controlled lighting assures that you are not over illuminating areas that are not being used. When the sun goes down the lights turn on automatically and adjust throughout the night, and when you are ready for bed, with a touch of a single button, the entire home powers down…you no longer have to get out of bed to turn off a light.
