Light Up Your Life with Smart Lights & Motorized Shades
Why the Modern Home Needs Smart Lighting and Shading Control
Home automation has come a long way over the past few decades. What was considered advanced years ago, such as TV remotes and light motion detectors, are now standard features in most homes throughout the country. But you want a home that’s better than “standard,” don’t you? Instead of settling for an average home in Buckhead, GA, upgrade to a robust and smart lighting and shading control system.
With the touch of a button on a remote or icon on a smart home tablet, you take control of all the shades and lights in your home (or in a specific room). You can even set scenes! Read our article to discover the unique benefits of these state-of-the-art smart home technologies.
The Luxury of Smart Lighting
In the 19th century, when electric lights were invented, it wasn’t unusual to see electric cords dangling from ceilings and walls. And that was considered a luxury! We have come a long way since then. Now, wires and everything that powers the technology in our homes are hidden from plain sight. Even better, when you have a smart lighting control system, you can take command of every light in your home without getting up from your seat.
A lighting control system is designed with your luxury in mind. It seamlessly integrates control of smart lighting, as well as motorized shades (more on that later) to add convenience and opulence to your life. In addition, smart lights from makers like Lutron can be tunable. Not only can you adjust the brightness but also the light color based on the time of day, the room, the event, and your mood.
If you’d prefer to let your lights think for themselves, program a scene. Then simply press one icon or button, and all the lights adjust accordingly. Better than that, circadian lights adjust automatically based on the sun’s position in the sky. So, you don’t have to touch anything to enjoy perfect lighting in your home.
The Sophistication of Seamless Shade Control
When setting a scene for your lights, why not add smart shades too? Just imagine waking up in the morning as your lights automatically illuminate and your motorized shades quietly raise. Or perhaps you and the family are ready to watch a movie in your home theater. Select the “Movie” scene on your tablet or smartphone, and the theater lights dim, the shades lower, and the TV and sound system turn on. That’s home entertainment luxury!
Still, seamless control of your shades isn’t the only thing that makes them smart. They are also room-enhancing. Motorized window treatments from Lutron, Screen Innovations, and other brands are designed to complement your design motif. Available in many styles and fabrics, you’ll find the perfect shade to bring beauty and balance into any room.
At the same time, motorized shades add to your home security system. Because you can program them to operate at certain times during the day or raise and lower by using a light sensor, they give your home the appearance of occupancy even when you’re not there. In fact, if you’d like, you can control them via your smartphone app even when you’re miles away.
