What Does Your Lighting Installation Say About You?
Light is ubiquitous. Whether you’re out in the sun, in a closet with a single bare bulb or in a fully automated home with recessed fixtures, light defines the space. That’s why a well-designed lighting installation is essential for putting your own personal spin on any room of your Westfield, Indiana home. But elaborate, effective and efficient lighting doesn’t have to be a hassle; you can take total control with a few simple commands on your tablet or smartphone. From setting the scene for the perfect party atmosphere, to making it appear you’re home even when you’re miles away, lighting can add style and security to your property. Read on to find out more.
Craft a Stylish Look
With the winter holidays right around the corner, there’s no better time to upgrade the look of your home. But why settle for a new coat of paint in the dining room, or a few throw rugs in the living room? Create a stylish atmosphere in your home that can be transformed with the touch of a button by installing smart lighting controls.
A new, stylish look for your home begins before you even walk through the door. Your landscape is already beautiful, so why not enhance the area with strategically placed lighting. Highlight the areas you want to emphasize, while downplaying the parts that you don’t. When you get bored, it only takes a few swipes on your touchpad to craft an entirely new arrangement.
But don’t stop at mere dimming and zone control – add a splash of color. Philips HUE bulbs are the perfect addition to your lighting control system. The LED smart bulbs pack thousands of color options, and they can be tied in to your Control4 system. That means it’s easy to choose an elegant red and white color scheme for Christmastime, and convert it into a celebratory New Year’s arrangement after the holiday.
Plus, you can install your smart bulbs anywhere. When the family and friends have gathered in your home for merry festivities, designate different rooms for different activities. Choose a cool blue hue for a place to relax and converse, and a classy white for the dining room. You can even turn the lights off in areas that you don’t want to draw attention to. With smart lighting, your home looks better than ever.
Stay Secure on Winter Vacation
Of course, for plenty of homeowners, winter is the perfect time to get out of the house on vacation. Whether you’re visiting family or just seeking the Florida sunshine, you want to remain confident that your home is secure. Smart lighting can help.
Along with a strong security system and surveillance cameras, your automated lighting system can be programmed to enhance your home’s safety. Control4’s “mockupancy” feature turns lights on and off throughout your home during the day and night, to give the impression that someone is always in the house.
Moreover, floodlights can be installed in your yard to activate when any movement is detected. Working in conjunction with your surveillance cameras, you can have brightly lit footage streamed directly to your tablet or smartphone, so you’ll be able to see any potential threats in real time.
