Home automation delegates the more mundane and inconvenient tasks involved in your managing your home to a computer that can learn your habits and your schedule, letting you relax and let the system do its work. It may seem high-tech (and it is), but it’s an increasingly viable option for the average homeowner. Smart lighting is one aspect of home automation that offers a hands-free, convenient approach to home management.
A smart home allows you to run your home with maximum efficiency, conserving energy and money. Smart bulbs like the Philips Hue use LEDs use less energy and last a lot longer. And when you install lighting controls such as the Lutron home automation system, you’ll eliminate the risk of leaving the lights on and wasting energy since you can control everything from a remote control or an app on your smartphone. Some systems even use geofencing technology to automatically turn off the lights for you whenever it senses that your location is out of a certain range.
When you can control everything from your phone, it makes life a whole lot easier. Never get up from the couch to flick off (or dim) the light for a movie, or even better, create a schedule that turns off your lights when you leave for the day and turn on when you return. Remember the timers that are used for Christmas lights? Smart lighting takes that technology, now outdated, up a level by integrating timers into each of your home’s switches. You can even make your outdoor lights “smart,” and expect a bright, automatically lit pathway to greet you each night when you arrive home.
Smart lighting in particular can be a complicated undertaking, so it’s best to leave the work to an experienced professional. HomeWiz technicians are trained home automation specialists that can help you to create the home automation experience that you’re looking for.
