Smart Lighting Control for Your Home
Everyone can benefit from smart lighting control in their Calgary home. Most of us have left lights on, or walked into a completely dark house. Smart lighting allows you to turn those lights on and off from almost anywhere using a smartphone. Furthermore, you can use an app to set schedules for the lighting system. For example, to turn lights on and off automatically, based on certain times of day.
A lighting control system is often the basis for a whole house control system. Certainly, it’s the reason to do automation. Once you have it, you have an infrastructure to add anything else you desire. Typically, a control system manages both lighting and shading, as they often work together in most homes.
Lighting Control Benefits with Control4
Are you designing a new home, or planning a renovation? If so, you need to be aware of all of the benefits of designing for a smart home with lighting control.
The convenience of a smart lighting system is obvious. For example, a touch of a button can set the lighting and shade levels in a room. Or, set the entire interior and exterior of the home. You can easily create and then memorize to a single button dramatic lighting scenes to match any mood or occasion.
With one button, you can turn off all lights in your property’s outbuildings at night, eliminating the need to check each one. Or, a single button can illuminate a pathway from the garage’s exterior lights to the hallway and kitchen for someone arriving home late. The usefulness of lighting control is hard to deny.
Many lighting and shading duties we do daily today can be managed completely automatically with lighting control. Program lights and shades to operate based on events like time of day or sunrise/sunset. Or, by such factors as room occupancy, events or alarm conditions. This automation frees your mind and time.
Aesthetics is another great benefit of smart lighting. We can remove all that clutter (or wall acne) of multiple dumb single gang switches. Then, we replace the entire bank with one elegant backlit keypad. Furthermore, we can replace conventional switches, knobs, and sliders with one elegant control station. This frees up wall space for art, furnishings…or nothing.
Energy costs and environmental concerns are concerns to most people today. By ensuring lighting happens where and when we need them and are not used when not needed, we save energy, cost and reduce our footprint in the environment.
