Controlled lighting allows you to create the perfect ambiance in your home. An integrated system, along with motorized shades and draperies, enables you to adjust the aesthetics to your liking. Instead of merely turning on and off various lights in your home, the system can offer preset sequences or prearranged schedules. You can program scenarios like “reading,” “dinner party,” or “movie viewing.” Imagine hosting a party and pressing one button to light the interior and exterior of your home in its most attractive manner.
Lighting also creates a more secure home. As you approach your driveway, and with the touch of a button in your car, turn on your exterior flood lights, open the garage door and illuminate the hallway from your garage to your kitchen. One of the master controls for the entire home could be next to your bed. Should you hear a sound outside in the middle of the night, you can turn on all of the lights in and outside your home. When you leave for vacation, just press one button so that lights turn on and off and shades close and open creating a pattern that suggests someone is still home.
Additionally, integrated lighting adds value to your home. The preset scenes and automatic timers manage your energy usage so you conserve power and save money. The same wiring that commands the lights can also command lawn irrigation, pool temperature, hot tubs, garage door openers, and your complete home entertainment system. The latest lighting systems are wireless so they can be installed easily in one room or in any room design throughout your home. Imagine the simplicity, the efficiencies, the convenience, the security and the energy savings that integrated lighting will bring to your life.
