3 Reasons Why You’ll Love Home Lighting Control
Reduce Energy Waste, Increase Security, and Enjoy Convenience
Home lighting control is one of those things that you don’t realize what you’re missing out on until you experience it—and then you can’t live without it! You might think that installing a home lighting control system on your Portsmouth, NH property is an unnecessary and frivolous purchase, but the benefits say otherwise.
In this blog post, we’re going to share three reasons why you’ll love having a home lighting control system. Let’s get started.
Good for the Environment and Your Electricity Bill
If you’re looking to curb energy waste, you’re not unlike most homeowners. A Lutron home lighting control system turns your home into an energy-efficient machine. Installing sensors in your home’s most used spaces can help your lighting control system determine if someone is occupying a room. If you forget to turn the kitchen light off on your way out the door in the morning, the light will turn off shortly after you leave when it senses the room has been unoccupied for a specified amount of time.
Another energy-saving benefit to Lutron’s lighting control is preset scenes. Programmed scenes allow you to use precise dimming of the lights in your home to save energy and create the right ambiance for a relaxing evening. You can even tie in your other smart home solutions. Select the “Relax” scene to dim the lighting, lower the motorized shades for privacy, and to tune into your favorite Spotify station—you’ll have no problem winding down from a busy day!
Increased Home Security
Did you know that a well-lit home is more likely to ward off unwanted intruders? A dark home is an opportunity for crime, so avoid being a target with smart exterior lighting that turns on automatically at sunset and off at sunrise.
You can also go a step further in increasing home security by utilizing Contro4’s “mockupancy” setting. This setting turns lights on and off in a natural pattern, making it look as though your home is occupied even though it's not. Leaving the lights consistently on in and around your home when you're gone broadcasts that you are away. It can also add up to a lot of wasted energy.
Sheer Convenience with Home Automation
A simple reason why you’ll love having a home lighting control system on your Portsmouth-area property is the sheer convenience it brings to your life. Take that convenience to another level by integrating lighting control functionality with your Control4 home automation system. You’ll be able to manage and monitor all of the smart devices in your home, from multi-room audio to lighting and more!
