Home Lighting Control Systems
A well designed lighting system is a big part of what makes a smart home special. Not only can it effortlessly set the mood inside the house, the lighting control system can operate as the backbone for the various home automation systems used in the smart home.
Choosing the right lighting control system
The choice of lighting control system is important because it often operates as the core building block of your smart home - so it can determine the overall capability of the home automation systems used. At Smart Home Solutions, we are certified partners with most key brands in lighting control and will recommend, design and install the system that suits you best, instead of pushing one system that may not suit your needs.
The benefits of smart lighting control
Setting the mood
You don’t notice a well-thought-out lighting system, but you see the effects – lighting sets the mood of your living spaces. When Smart Home Solutions design your lighting, we will plan it around you and your lifestyle, giving your home a welcoming feel from day one.
Best of all, creating the mood you want from welcoming you home, entertaining guests or shutting down for the night can be as simple as pressing one button. Each touch panel can have multiple lighting ‘scenes’ programmed in, such as ‘Romantic Dinner’, ‘Meal Preparation’ or ‘Movie Time’.
Our elegant control solutions will blend into any decor, reducing wall clutter and adding value to your home.
One system does it all
A smart home should reduce the complexity in your life, not increase it. We can design your smart home so that lighting, A/V, security and other home automation systems all run off the lighting control system, with a single interface to control everything. Nothing could be simpler. Forget multiple remote controls, wall panels and instruction manuals! As certified partners with the main brands of lighting control, we can give you a system that is only limited by your imagination.
A smart lighting control system will save electricity and save you money. From something as simple as lights that switch off when you’re out of the room to lighting linked to automated blinds that open to allow natural light in, we can design a system that will significantly reduce your home’s energy consumption.
Our lighting control systems also ensure that every light in your home is operating at the optimal level for both illumination effectiveness and energy efficiency.
Our smart lighting control systems can be programmed with an ‘away from home’ mode that will give your home a lived-in look while you’re not there by replicating the lighting changes that occur when the home is occupied.
You’ll also have peace of mind in knowing that your lighting system can actively deter unwanted visitors by coming on when movement is detected at night – or from a press of a button at your bedside should you hear a strange noise during the night.
Keeping it simple
As the backbone of the smart home, the lighting control system will interface with many other systems including A/V, security, access control and heating & cooling. Trying to get multiple service providers to work together to deliver a simple and elegant solution here can be a nightmare – that’s where Smart Home Solutions come in.
We manage the whole process, starting with detailed schematics and cable schedules to ensure all contractors know exactly what’s needed, to finishing with programming the system and showing you how to use it (not that you’ll need help – our systems are simple and intuitive to operate!).
We can even design the system to work with your existing (and familiar) technology – for example you can activate the ‘Welcome Home’ setting from your phone on your way home, a simple and elegant solution that makes coming home a real pleasure.
