Lighting Control Offers So Many Benefits
Whether your goal is to help reduce energy costs or simply elevate your home décor, lighting control can help you achieve it. Here’s a short breakdown of a few of the benefits of lighting control:
- Energy Management: A smart lighting control system can help you lower your home’s energy bill by automatically turning off lights in unused rooms, dimming artificial lights to take advantage of natural lighting, and more.
- Security: By setting up a “Vacation” scene with your Control4 lighting control system, you can enhance your home’s security. A “Vacation” scene uses regular lighting patterns to make it seem like you’re at home, even if you’re halfway across the world.
- Interior Design: Lighting is an excellent way to highlight artwork or architecture both inside and outside your home. Use pre-set scenes to adjust the lighting and enhance each room for different scenarios, such as a candlelit dinner or a fun party.
- Convenience: With a lighting control system from Control4, you never have to worry about walking through your entire home just to turn off the lights. Instead, adjust the lights throughout your home with the touch of a single button, saving you time and effort.
You Can Experience the Automation
Smart lighting control gives you an opportunity to see what living in a smart home is like before you do a complete renovation and transition to full smart home automation. You can see what you like about the system, decide how you want your programmed scenes to be set up, and find out what’s really important to you in a smart home automation solution (energy management, home security, comfort, etc.). Once you’ve gotten your feet wet with a lighting control solution, you’ll have a greater understanding of the vast capabilities of smart technology.
Form a Solid Foundation for the Future
The same technology that manages your home lighting is also the control system behind all of the other smart home automation technologies you could implement in your home. That means that by investing in smart lighting control, you’re creating a strong foundation for any future technologies. Control4 is a top-quality brand that can manage all of the smart technology in your house, from security to whole house audio. After you set up lighting control with your Control4 system, adding in home theater control, motorized shades, or another smart technology is a quick and simple process.
