New to Home Automation? Start with Smart Lighting Control

We all remember when smart homes were just an idea we saw in sci-fi movies. Today, smart homes are all around us in Leawood, KS and beyond, helping to simplify, enhance, and secure our daily lifestyles.

If you’ve considered integrating smart technology into your home but are new to the concept of home automation, we recommend you start with a smart home lighting system by Control4. Smart lighting provides a more efficient way to manage the lights in your home while doing even more for you, too. Learn three benefits of smart lighting below.

Intuitive One-Tap Scenes

One of your daily routines likely involves making rounds throughout your home to adjust lights in the morning and evening. What if you could manage and monitor all the lights in your home from one centralized control instead? Control4 lets you adjust every light throughout your home when you’re rushing out the door or lying comfortably in bed—without having to make tedious trips to every room.

You can also create one-tap lighting scenes for activities like cooking in the kitchen or illuminating the downstairs rooms for a party. Don’t settle for static brightness either! Dim one or all your lighting fixtures with just a swipe on your smart device of choice to complement any mood perfectly.

Creating Lighting Scenes:

Hands-Free Control

For even more convenience, opt for hands-free lighting control by scheduling your lights to automatically adjust at certain times of the day. Wake up to brightening lights in your bedroom, arrive home in the evening to an illuminated walkway, and more.

You can also integrate motion sensors with your lighting for hands-free illumination when walking into certain areas of the home. Motion detectors add more convenience for controlling your lights in uncommonly used rooms while helping you save energy by turning lights off when no one is occupying the space.

Another hands-free lighting control option that works well when you’re multitasking is voice control. Use Amazon Alexa devices around your home to turn on or off different scenes and lighting fixtures when your hands are full or you’re in the middle of a task.

Adds Beauty to Your Home Spaces

While the convenience of Control4 lighting is clear, a home lighting system can also be used to enhance various areas inside and outside your home. In just a tap, light up your pool area and brighten your curbside landscape. You can even set your outdoor lights to turn on and off automatically with the sunrise.

Indoors, use lighting scenes to enhance architectural features, illuminate your artwork, and create layers of light for more beautiful and comfortable home spaces. Control4 makes creating the perfect lighting design for every room and task effortless.
