Lighting control technology is improving quickly and automating your lighting with wireless control is becoming a new standard in the automated world. Not only does it allow you to declutter your wall space, it can help enhance the mood and add to the design element depending on the room and settings. We love it here at SoundVision because of it’s convenience, you are able to set your favorite settings as your default for perfect lighting upon entering each room of your home.
Lighting control can help simplify your home and get rid of the multitudes of light switches. A single keypad can now eliminate wall clutter and take the place of the banks of light switches taking over your wall. They keypads are labelled as well as, eliminating the need to look around the room when turning each light on or off in order to figure out if you flipped the right switch.
The app that can be used from your smartphone or tablet allows you to click a button, for example “Great Room” and have all the lights you wish turn on at your preferred default setting in the specified room
The other thing we love is the ability to control all of your lights at once with the “All Off” button upon leaving your home. Can’t remember if you forgot a light after you left? Since the app is on your personal device you have total control of your lights when you are away from home ensuring you never accidentally leave that bathroom light on.
We are also able to integrate with motorized roller shades and alarm systems. Roller shades and motorized drapes are fully automated through total home control systems and have the ability to shut out or let in outdoor light through the touch of a button, both wirelessly and quietly to help control your natural lighting. Read our post about roller shades here.
Customers also benefit from direct security alarm integration, when away you can set the home system to “vacation mode” so your home appears occupied, temperature is turned off and lights and shades can be adjusted so home appears occupied. If there is an intruder all lights are turned on, shades are risen and the outside lights flash. Upon returning home and disarming the alarm, lights are turned on, shades are risen and the temperature is adjusted to your enabled preset.
Best of all, wireless lighting control and roller shades can be installed to enhance your home when it is most convenient to you. If you want to update your home system to include full lighting control at your fingertips give call us today and we can discuss your options.
