Most homes don’t offer variable lighting control, which is quite bizarre in this day and age. People enjoy variable control over most devices – think of the volume control on your television or the temperature setting on your air conditioner. Even your hair dryer allows you to choose how hot or cold you want the air flow to be. There is a solution though, which is to invest in automated lighting. Being able to control your lighting provides you with more than just convenience. It can help to set the scene (which goes a long way towards enhancing your quality of life).

With automated lighting, you can also set the intensity of the lights, you can switch lights on and off as required, and you can even program the system to ensure that certain lights are turned on at certain times. Do you need a bit more to go on? Consider these four top benefits of automated lighting for your home.

  • Convenience – simply press a button or tell your lighting to switch on or off. It really doesn’t get more convenient than that. You can even use the automated lighting to send a message to other rooms of the house. How? If dinner is ready, set the lights in the bedrooms to flash a few times. Now that’s convenient!
  • Energy saving – leaving lights on is a great way to rack up a high electricity bill and negatively affect the environment. By dimming your lights or setting the lighting system to a sensor that only turns on when someone is in the room and turns off when they leave, you can greatly reduce the energy consumption of the home.
  • Elegance and aesthetic appeal – the lighting fixtures themselves are designed to look elegant and appealing within the home, and so are the switches. Old-fashioned lights feature bulky, unattractive switches on the wall. Automated lighting switches are found on keypads and on your digital devices, so you won’t have to worry about them ruining the aesthetics of the room.
  • Added safety – automated lighting is a great preventative measure to deter potential criminal activity. The more lit up a home is, the less likely criminals are to put themselves at risk of being caught trying to break in or lurking around the property. Automated lighting also ensures that paths are lit up when entering and exiting the home. You can also ensure that the security lights turn on when movement is sensed.
