LED LIGHTING – The Light Wave Of The Future

Today, LED's bring a whole new dimension of lighting capabilities with their use.

LED or light emitting diode, is the new wave of light sweeping across the world. Not only is it cost effective to use, it is very efficient in every capacity of lighting your home and business.


LED lighting technology is quickly replacing our CFL, incandescent, and other conventional types of lighting in our places of play, business, and home. There are a lot of good qualities in LED lighting, such as low energy consumption, ample lighting, and a broad spectrum of use, but it hasn’t always been that way.

In its infancy, LED’s as we refer to them, were expensive, not very practical, and uncontrollable. As with anything new tech that hits the market, it is most usually marked up so that the industry can not only manufacture, but continue research to develop a project to its full potential. The same can be said about LED lighting. Consumers paid for the advancements in LED technology. Using LED’s was not as practical as other forms of lighting in the beginning. It wasn’t very compatible with lighting fixtures, and there were power regulating issues which affected dimming. Experiment with increasing power would often blow the diode which weakened the light emitted from the diode pod. However, through test and trial, the technology behind the LED was perfected enough to be integrated into the lighting market as a viable means of illuminating homes, businesses and communities.

LED lighting has become very popular in smart homes because of its practicality and affordability.

Dimming problems have been solved, LED lights have a longer lifespan, and they are comparable in price to other styles of lighting. You’ll also notice a difference in your energy bill as well. Take a look at the following chart of costs to see the difference in the three basic means of lighting.

Today, LED’s bring a whole new dimension of lighting capabilities with their use.


With your smart home connection, you can change the mood of your home with different colors, brighten a room for warmth, or dim a room for ambience. There are no more flutterings in the lights when dim and no completely cut off when trying to adjust the desired amount of light. It is one of the simplest components to add to your smart home programming.

*The calculated home technology budget range you will receive will includes parts, labor & accessories (Tax not included)
(a round number is OK)
Numerous structures on the property: Dock, Casita, Guest House, Barn, Gate etc. Check all that apply.
Prewire installation calculations assume you would like your home fully wired for ALL home automation technologies shown throughout the budget calculator, including 'future-ready' wiring. Prewire pricing can vary substantially based on what features you would like in your home. The wiring budget is for low-voltage wiring, not for electrical.
Prewire pricing will vary based on exactly what features you would like in your home. Read this article about the importance of wiring/cabling in today's "wireless" world. Your local Smarter Homes integrator is the best resource for exact prewire pricing. Wiring budget is for low-voltage wiring only, not electrical.
Keep in mind that our modern lifestyle and our home's automation technology systems are extremely reliant on a quality network and Wi-Fi system. Most homes are moving towards enterprise-grade hardware and away from the types of network products you could buy in an office supply store or a consumer computer store. We recommend that all homeowners consider the network and Wi-Fi system to be the most important system and installation within the home.
Higher-quality sound or higher-grade architectural finished speakers can range from $5,000.00 to $10,000.00 PER ROOM
Basic background music system pricing ranges from $1,500.00 to $5,000.00 per room including all equipment, labor, and programming.
Range includes video sources such as AppleTV, a Blu-ray player, satellite receiver, and remotely-locating them for best aesthetics. A basic soundbar is included for better audio.
This is called “video distribution” and reduces the amount of audio/video equipment located at each TV location/room.
A surround sound system creates an immersive sound experience, much like a dedicated home theater room, though in a dual-purpose room such as a Family Room, Master Bedroom, etc. If you would like more than one surround system location, click on the "Add Another Surround System" button below
Typically, homeowners want to see the following areas: front of house, front door, driveway / gate, sides of house, and pool. If you are more concerned about security, you may want to add cameras for the perimeter of your property. Good-quality cameras see about 75 feet of distance on average. The high range of the budget estimate includes higher resolution cameras, better night vision, and longer surveillance recording time.
The installation of a lighting control system reduces wall clutter, allows preset lighting scenes at the push of a button, increases security through programming automation, and adds convenience.
Motorized shades add beauty, convenience, address privacy concerns, and can be used to save energy. If desired, provide your best guess on how many windows/shades you want to motorize. The higher-end of the budget range includes higher-end fabrics, large windows, and dual-roller shades (both sheer and privacy shades on one window).
For example, a house music app, an app to operate your TV, an app for lighting automation, an app for locks, an app for cameras, an app to open close garage doors & gates, etc. Or do you want to control the entire house through a single unified app that controls all the automation systems within the home?
Make your home feel larger by balancing the light between indoor and outdoor areas.
