Lighting Control at the Touch of a Button or Turn of a Wheel
Let Your Smart Home Manage Your Daylight & Electric Light Effortlessly
What do you think of when you read "Lighting Control”? For many people, the first thought that comes to mind is turning the lights in their home on and off, whether with the flip of a switch or the turn of a knob. But, thanks to the continued advancements in technology, that term means so much more today.
As smart technology advances, more homeowners are managing the lighting in their homes with beautiful custom-engraved keypads, high-resolution touch screens, and motorized shades. As a result, they're not only controlling their electric lights effortlessly but daylight as well, creating a seamless exchange of natural and artificial light that sets the perfect stage for life’s many activities.
Let’s explore the world of smart lighting control and how it’s changing homes in Indianapolis, IN.
The Power of Daylight
We consider three main layers of light in lighting design: task, accent, and ambient. Daylight plays an essential role in ambient lighting, bringing in the beauty and warmth of filtered sunlight. When integrated with a home automation platform, you no longer have to manually manage daylight by adjusting your window coverings. Now, your smart home does it for you.
Your motorized shades open and close based on the time of day and the sun's position. As the sun rises full in the sky, they lower to protect your home from the sun's harmful rays. At the same time, your lighting adjusts to ensure the perfect level of illumination. This elegant dance exemplifies the beauty of smart home living that’s seen in the many connected devices and systems that work seamlessly together.
The Perfect Illumination
For many years, we turned our lights on and off, expecting the same white light to illuminate our homes. Lutron, our partner and the world leader in lighting control, changed that. Now, you can choose from every color in the visible light spectrum to create the perfect lighting for your moods and activities.
In 2022, our home automation partner, Control4, came out with a vibrant color wheel that lets you manage the various lights in your home effortlessly by spinning the wheel to the desired color. Once you have the perfect lighting for dinner, outdoor dining, movie night, game night, cooking, relaxing, entertaining, and more, you can set the lighting to that specific scene. Now, with one tap, your home and outdoor areas settle into the perfect illumination.
This form of lighting control not only enhances everyday experiences but also saves energy by automatically turning lights off when everyone leaves a room. It also improves security by randomly turning lights on and off when everyone's away in the evening. Now, that's a smart home.
