The Many Benefits of Lighting Control

Lighting Control has many benefits for you and your home

The Many Benefits of Lighting Control

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.

Your Smart Home goes hand in hand with a Professional Home Network

Install your Home Network with Systems Design for a reliable Smart Home System

Your Smart Home goes hand in hand with a Professional Home Network

Why is a solid network crucial to a smart home system or just a home in general?

It is important for your home to run efficiently, therefore a professional home network is an important key factor in making your smart home operate reliably.

A strong home network is a foundation to any electronic lifestyle you would like to achieve.  Let’s take a few steps back, when you build a home, the first important key factor is a strong foundation.  Likewise, in a smart home, a strong network is the foundation of all electronic integrations in your home.

If you are investing thousands of dollars into your smart home equipment, the performance of the devices is only as good as the network they are on.  The reality is that the comcast router will not work for your whole house smart home equipment, this solution might do the trick for a small studio or a one-bedroom condo, but if you are planning to integrate a lot of technology, and want a smooth, fast and reliable network – a Home Network is the first step to making all run flawless.

STOP for a second and lets think, you are building a new home, or just moved into a large home – you have a few phones, lets say you have 4-5 smart TV”s, a few laptops, a few iPad, including children’s devices that connect to the network, whole house audio system with multi-zones of audio, a home automation system that will control your thermostats, oh yes – your smart thermostats also connect to your WIFI- in a large home you have about 4-8 of them, you have Lutron or Savant Lighting that you will control from your Home Automation – each dimmer connects to a network.  Lighting alone you have about 15-25 devices that will connect to your WIFI. An average home has about 40-60 devices and it could go up higher the more devices are connected to the network.  A simple router from your provider will simply not do the trick.

A solid network is back bone to your smart home.  If you have a poor one, it will produce poor audio quality, and video streaming, slow speed and failed attempts to connect to your smart home system.

How Can Systems Design Help You?

Our process includes designing a home network system that will support your smart home and your lifestyle.  We will take steps to assess the system and ensure the connection is strong and reliable and is handling all of your smart home technology.  We use the best of home network technology available.  We install home networks, every week, and are very knowledgeable in getting the networking done and done right for you.  We will install and configure everything.  Not only you can pause the network, you will have the option of resetting it remotely from your computer or phone, and not having the need to go behind the AV Rack and finding the equipment that possibly need to be reset.

Contact Systems Design today to develop a plan to upgrade your Home Network.
