4 Questions to Ask Before Installing Home Lighting Control


If you are on the fence about this smart technology solution, check out these tips!

Lighting is one of the most used systems in your home, yet most homeowners only have localized on and off switches. Make the most out of your lighting with a smart lighting control system that allows you to manage the lights in one, several, or all the rooms of your home using preset schedules or one-tap controls. 

If you are on the fence about whether it would be a good fit for your home, our experts are here to help! Read on to learn the answers to four questions that you should ask yourself before investing in lighting control for your Kansas City, MO home.



How Do You Want to Control your Lights?

We partner with Control4 to bring refined lighting control to our customers. Control4 gives you the ability to light one room or a whole home from anywhere with ease. Plus, you can always scale up later if you want to start small. Control4 allows you to adjust your lighting using a smartphone, tablet, remote, or wall keypad—whether you are at home or away. Pull into the garage and turn on your kitchen lights with just a quick tap on your phone! From your bedside, turn off all the lights in your home or select a preset nighttime lighting setting without having to leave the comfort of your bed.

Do You Want to Save Energy?

Smart lighting control can minimize your carbon footprint and reduce your energy bills. Pair your lighting fixtures with occupancy sensors that will turn them off when no foot traffic is detected in the area. Schedule your outdoor lights to turn on when the sun sets and turn off when the sun rises.

Traditional light switches only have on and off options. When you opt for smart dimmers, your lighting can be dimmed to any percent, using less energy than a light fixture that is 100% on. If you have motorized shades, you can also schedule them to open when the sun rises to lessen your reliance on artificial lighting. 

Do You Like to Travel?

Take advantage of Control4’s Mockupancy feature to make your home seem occupied when you are out of town. Your lights will turn on and off throughout the day, making outside onlookers think you’re home. The Mockupancy feature can also open and close your shades, adjust your outdoor lighting, and more to further this illusion. And you can rest easy knowing that your Control4 system is helping to protect your home!

Is your Home Large or Luxurious?

Homeowners with sprawling estates or refined tastes must consider the lighting in their homes to create a stunning and integrated interior design. If your home has many lighting fixtures, a lighting control system is ideal for managing your property easily—set scenes based on specialized activities or by the time of day. Group your lighting by rooms and zones and adjust every fixture to the exact intensity that you desire. With smart lighting, your options are endless.
