How to Use a Lighting Control System to Enhance Your Daily Life
Top Smart Lighting Features and Their Benefits
Give your living space a design boost with just a push of a button. A smart lighting control system in your home can take your daily environment to another level entirely — whether you live in West Lake Hills, Lakeway, Tarrytown, Austin, or anywhere else in Central Texas! Whether it’s for everyday use or a get-together or party that you’re hosting, having an installed intelligent lighting solution has endless benefits.
So then what are the best ways to utilize your lighting system, and how can it integrate with your whole home automation system? Keep reading below to find out more!
Set the Right Scene
Whether you’re staying in for the night or setting up for a dinner party, setting a lighting “scene” can make it easier to plan and enjoy the moment. Instead of needing to readjust your lighting to how you like it for certain events, you can instead just press a single button and have your light fixtures all respond accordingly.
For example, pushing a “dinner” scene can dim your dining room’s lights and a “movie night” scene can turn them off completely in your media room or home theater. These scenes eliminate unnecessary work on your part, and you can tie them in with other smart features in your home, such as motorized shades and audio video solutions.
Use smart lighting to increase your property’s overall security. By setting an “away” scene while you’re gone for a few hours or on vacation, your lights can turn on and off throughout the day as they would when you’re home. This will throw off burglars who are targeting your seemingly unoccupied house and keep them steered clear.
By having your landscape lighting automatically turn on when the sun sets or having installed photo sensors detect when it’s starting to get dark, you can have a fully illuminated front yard. This not only boosts your curb appeal but better protects your home as well. It’s safer to walk from your driveway to your front door and keeps intruders from roaming across your property.
