You might not realize how lighting can affect the look and feel of your home. Smart lighting is an excellent way to improve your home's appearance. Most people are interested in smart lighting because it saves money and adds convenience, but a smart lighting system can also make your home brighter and more beautiful. Do you want to enjoy a brighter and more elegant home? It all starts with smart lighting.
Intelligent lighting and automation are a perfect combination of style and function. Smart technology makes your home look beautiful while also giving you complete lighting control. For example, you can set the scene for your bedroom to be bright and warm at night, and then set the mood for watching television in the living room with a dimmer, cool light. You can even use voice commands to control your lights. Learn more about this technology that brings beauty and convenience to your home.
Intelligent lighting is a smarter way to brighten your home
Smart lights can be automated to make your life easier. With a smart home system like Control 4, your lights can be programmed to adjust automatically based on your specifications. Imagine automation that detects your preferences without you having to remember a thing.
As you go through your day, your smart home system uses motion detectors or sensors to know when you're home. When you wake up your lighting system can help ease into your morning, by gradually brightening the room to gently wake you up. And, when it's time for bed, they turn off automatically to help you sleep better at night.
Smart lighting lets you set the mood
Maybe you have a romantic evening planned with your significant other. You can create the perfect scene by playing music throughout your home and cuddling on the sofa to enjoy a movie. The only thing missing is a nice, cozy lighting setting. With a simple push of a button, you can completely control your home’s lighting. All you have to do is select the scene from your tablet or keypad, and the overhead lights dim and the movie starts to play.
Automating your home's lighting is a great way to set the mood. You can create scenes for any activity, such as a warm and inviting scene in the living room or a cool, contemporary scene in the kitchen. If you forget to turn off your porch light at night, you can even automate that. Or want to highlight features around your deck? A smart lighting system can be programmed to automate your lights outdoors too.
What else can a smart lighting system do?
Control 4 is an excellent home automation system that can turn your ordinary home into a smart home. Many homeowners start their journey into smart home automation with smart lighting. This will make your home brighter and more convenient but also add energy savings. In these days of high energy prices, why not make an investment in your home with a smart lighting system?
A Control 4 smart switch can replace any of your existing light switches. This system can turn your lights on and off. You can also use it to control other devices in your home, such as TVs or speakers. The best thing about a Control 4 system is that you can add more smart features over time.
Smart lighting can make you more comfortable in your home. It can also reduce your energy costs. Energy Star estimates that lighting accounts for about 20 percent of your electricity bill. Switching to a smart lighting system, you could reduce your energy bill by as much as 30 percent. The amount you save depends on how much energy you typically use and how diligent you are with turning off lights when they aren't needed.
