Custom-tailored lighting control allows you to change the mood of any area of your home to suit the occasion. Whether watching TV, dining or entertaining, one press of a button can create the ideal atmosphere you desire. For example, press ‘Goodnight’ to turn all your lights off or ‘Pathway’ to light the way downstairs. Smart home lighting control also contributes to a safe environment by linking with the security system to turn all lights on if uninvited activity is detected. Lighting control systems save energy.

Smart home automated lighting systems allow you to control and adjust the brightness of your lights, without your conscious input. Smart lights, and smart lighting bulbs are ideal for situations when lighting plays a major role, such as in the evening or during parties.
Here are some of our client’s favorite lighting scenes and functions:
Outdoor landscape lighting that is programmed to automatically go on one hour before sunset and automatically go off one hour after sunrise ensuring the outside of your home is always lit for aesthetics and safety
Lights that go on in the kitchen and hallways every morning at 7 AM, just before the kids come down for breakfast
Automation lighting vacation scenes that mimic your daily activity to create the appearance that someone is home, even when you’re not
Turning the pool light off at 1 am during the summer months, so you never lie in bed trying to remember if you turned it off
A pre-programmed 90s Dance Party every Friday night from 7pm-9pm complete with color-changing LEDs? We can do that too.
Lighting scenes are just one of the exciting features available with Smart Home Lighting. Aside from preprogrammed scenes, keypad locations can be placed in strategic areas of your home that permit one-touch access to the lights inside your home. Popular configurations include “all-on” and “all-off” which turn all the lights in your home on and off together. One of the most convenient features of an automated lighting is the integration to the rest of your home automation system. Simply tap the “away” button on the keypad by the garage and front door and all the lights go off, aside from some entryway lighting, if you choose. Additionally, this button may also turn off all of the TVs and the speakers by the pool, it may also turn on the alarm and set the thermostat to 74°F- and yes, the garage door openers for a quick exit and automatically closes after you drive away.
