What’s great about smart homes? Everything. Home automation helps us save time and energy which, in turn, saves us money. That money can be invested back into our smart home making every day more convenient. Talk about smart additions to your automation… how about lighting and shades!

 


 

Automated Lighting

Live in luxury with automated lighting. After a long day, arriving at a cheery, bright home is heartening. Control the lighting in your entire home remotely. Simply touch a button on your way to work and turn everything, from appliances to lights, off at once. Ready to come home? Bring your home from sad to glad in an instant. Voice-activated control can turn lights on and off or dim them. When it’s time for lights out, turn off select rooms, or your entire home, from the cozy convenience of your bed.

Stay in control of security while you’re away. In addition to controlling the lighting, you may decide to integrate home security into your smart home plan. There are many facets to a completely hands-free home. Let us help you design your smart home automation system. These systems can be configured at once, or by following a need-based plan over time. Automated lighting is an integral part of a smart home security plan.

 

Get Rid of the Balancing Act

Ever balanced grocery bags on your knee in a dark kitchen with your fingers tangled in car keys? Finding the light switch when your hands are full is a breeze with automated lighting. Simply ask your kitchen to light the way. Enjoy the dignity and poise that just walked back into your life. Automated lighting creates a cohesive, calm aspect in your interior space. New-build construction and remodels provide the perfect opportunity for centralizing lighting wires. This eliminates the need for unsightly switch banks and replaces individual light fixtures with unobtrusive keypads. Enjoy decorating your switch free wall space.

 

Make Your Home Smart Upfront of Over Time

Smart home features are easy to get used to. Once you’ve got the automated lighting installed, automated shades will be next on the list. Automatically shade areas of your home depending on the time of day. Don’t worry about your home becoming an oven in your absence. While you’re away, save energy with automated shades. They act in tandem with the rest of your home automation system to lower the cost of your annual energy bills.
