5 Ways to More Efficiently Control Your Home's Lights
These Home Lighting Control Solutions Take You Beyond the On/Off Switch
Each day you use your lights in a myriad of ways – from snapping yourself out of sleep in the morning to creating a safe path to your front door when you get home after work. But as you go about your daily routine, do you ever wonder if there’s a more convenient way to manage them throughout the day?
Embrace a home lighting control solution that offers a variety of options to match the diverse needs of your home in San Antonio, TX or the Texas Hill Country. Take advantage of keypads, mobile apps, or voice commands for a more intuitive way to adjust lighting throughout the day. Smart lighting is entirely customizable, so you can pick and choose whichever options work best for your family.
Custom keypads are a simple upgrade for families used to traditional wall controls. Through these keypads, dim lights and add custom scenes that let you change multiple fixtures at once. Designer keypads from Lutron come in a variety of colors and finishes to fit in perfectly with your chosen interior design. These elegant keypads not only simplify your home lighting control, but they reduce wall clutter as well.
How about a more modern approach to your lighting control? Enjoy centralized control from an easy-to-use interface on dedicated touchpads throughout the house. Each touchpad lets you dim lights, access smart scenes, and monitor which lights are on. If you see a light is on in an empty room, turn it off from the touchpad even if you're elsewhere in the house. These touchpads come in a variety of sizes and can be mounted on the wall or sit on a counter or coffee table.
Have a smart device you’d like to use instead of a dedicated touchpad? Enjoy the same intuitive interface through apps available on desktop, tablets, smartphones, and even smart watches. An added benefit of these mobile apps is that you can use them at any time, and anywhere – as long as you have an internet connection. Running late for work and forgot to turn lights off as you were leaving the house? Pull up the app at work when you have time to check what was left on and turn it off remotely.
Recently the most significant trend in smart lighting is voice control. Each of our control partners integrates easily with Amazon Alexa or Google Home. Can’t get to your lights because you’re holding groceries? Our lighting control systems make it easy to manage lights through intuitive voice commands. Have all the lights in a specific room turn on or dim them as needed without having to lift a finger.
Want changes to happen at a given time every day? Let us incorporate scheduled changes into your lighting control system. Enjoy a “Wake Up” scene that turns on the lights automatically when it’s time to get up in the morning. Take advantage of an “Evening” scene that activates outdoor lights once the sun sets, so you don’t come back to a dark house. If you ever want to make changes to these scheduled scenes in the future, it’s easy to do so through your mobile app.
