Smart lighting systems are just one of the many home automation technologies available to homeowners. They often get sidelined, however, in favor of seemingly more important technologies like home theater systems and outdoor entertainment.
Home lighting control installation, however, is what makes an automated home complete, and homeowners can benefit greatly from the increased energy efficiency. WiHome Integration discusses more.
The basic smart lighting technologies are programmable lights. As their name suggests, these are lighting fixtures you can program to suit your needs, such as only turning on at certain times or through automatic sensors.
Leaving a light on may not seem harmful initially, but it can have a negative impact on your energy bill. Programmable lighting solves this problem by giving you the ability to program an energy-efficient lighting routine that fits your home’s needs.
Dimmer lighting fixtures provide variable indoor lighting and can help set a mood or the perfect ambiance. They are also more energy-efficient as dimmer bulbs have a reduced wattage and output. We highly recommend these with smart entertainment technologies for a more complete and atmospheric experience.
While not necessarily a smart lighting technology, automated shades go hand-in-hand with them and complement a whole-house control system very well. They block the sun and give you much-needed privacy at the push of a button. Programmable shades are another good choice, and they are ideal for larger and hard-to-reach windows.
