The Many Benefits of Lighting Control
Lighting Control has many benefits for you and your home
Have you considered automating the lights in your home?
This trend is getting more popular every day as a great deal of homeowners enjoy the benefits of automated lighting systems. Remodeling a home’s lighting fixtures is a great way to update and modernize a dwelling, and an important thing to focus on if you are building a new house. Automated lighting control is convenient, enhances security and saves money. The amount and quality of light affects us, our moods, our ability to see, and our sleep cycles. It also indicates to anyone outside the home that someone is present inside.
When you renovate your home, it is always a good idea to turn to home automation solutions. That way you can gain control over the things that affect the atmosphere at your property, including the lighting. So without further ado, here are the many benefits of automated lighting.
Automated Lighting Helps You Sleep Better
When it is time to close your book or turn off the television in order to get some rest, too much light can prevent you from getting a good night’s sleep. So can getting out of a cozy bed to turn the lights off. In the old days, wealthy people had light switches installed within easy reach from the beds for this exact purpose. In the current day and age we can turn to technology. For example, having a light control module to turn lamps on and off around the house from a single control can help you ease into a healthy sleep. You can even control smart lights from various applications on your smartphone.
Automated Lighting Helps Our Moods
During the day, we need light to help us feel both awake and alert. At night, we need less light to signal to our bodies that it is soon time to doze off. An automated lighting control system that turns lights on and off on a timer is a great way to ease our bodies and minds throughout the day. More light can be mood elevating, and dimmer light can be relaxing or sedating, so timed lights and a dimmer work well together to set our moods.
Automated Lighting Helps With Home Security
When we travel, a lack of lighting control may very well indicate to others that no one is home. That means the house may appear easier to burglarize. Having lamps on a set schedule, or lamps we can check on and control with a smartphone application while away from the house, are good steps toward ensuring we can return home to find everything is safe and sound.
Automated Lighting Helps Save Money
How many times during any given day or night do you enter a room, turn on the light, and forget to turn it off when you leave that room? It is actually an incredibly common occurrence that wastes a significant amount of electricity. The good news is that lights with occupancy sensors turn on lights automatically when someone comes in the room. Vacancy sensors turn off lights when no one is in the room. This feature certainly goes a log way in helping to save money on the electricity bill. Humans may forget to turn off the lights, however light sensors never forget.
