MYTH #1: SMART LIGHTING CONTROLS ARE COMPLICATED  

While programming lights may sound complex, smart lighting systems are designed to simplify the process. These user-friendly systems are intuitive and feature simple interfaces anyone can use, even if you’re not tech-savvy. You can choose whether to use a smartphone app, a dedicated remote, voice commands, or wall controls. In addition, most lighting systems already have pre-programmed scenes and schedules, so you can quickly adjust those to your preferences and routines.

MYTH #2: HOME LIGHTING CONTROLS ARE NOT WORTH THE INVESTMENT  

There is an up-front investment to install a home lighting control system, as with any technology upgrade. However, the real payoff of a home lighting system comes in the long term, as they can help you significantly reduce energy use by ensuring lights are turned off at appropriate times and dimming when possible to conserve electricity. Additionally, you can pair occupancy and motion sensors with controls to maximize energy savings. Oh, and we didn’t even mention the value of switching to LED lightbulbs. With an increased lifespan over traditional bulbs, LEDs are cost-saving as well.

MYTH #3: HOME LIGHTING CONTROLS ARE ONLY FOR TECHIES  

You don’t need a techie membership to get lighting controls for your home. These systems were designed for easy use by anyone, tech enthusiast or not. Our professional installation team can set you up and guide you through the entire process to ensure the system is customized exactly as you’d like. As a result, everyone can benefit from added convenience and energy savings! 

MYTH #4: HOME LIGHTING CONTROLS ONLY WORK INSIDE

Feel free to add outdoor lighting components to your home lighting control system. Whether you want to illuminate your garden at night, use motion-activated security lights, or simply light your entry path in the dark, there are many options for integrating indoor and outdoor lighting solutions into one centralized control system. 

MYTH #5: HOME LIGHTING CONTROLS ARE NOT CONVENIENT

Lighting controls add a sense of luxury to your everyday life, which may make them seem impractical. However, automation has genuine benefits when adjusting light levels, activating scenes, and setting light schedules. Do you realize how often you leave lights on or how much time you spend turning lights on and off? These controls are convenient and helpful in many ways.
