Manage Your Home’s Lighting with One Touch or Automatically
What’s the first thing that catches your eye when you enter a home? For some, it’s the furnishings and floors, while others are drawn to the fine art and the colors that make up the design. However, the subtle element that defines all these objects is the lighting. In the right lighting, everything looks better.
The lighting in your home sets the mood and tone. It highlights your home’s best features. When the sun’s natural light streams through windows, it brings beauty, increased energy levels, and a brighter perspective.
Lighting is a powerful element.
Yet, in many homes, it remains stagnant. Lights are turned on for the task at hand and remain one constant hue and temperature. Shades are drawn when the sun brings excessive heat or glare, and we miss out on the beauty and benefits of natural light.
Fortunately, there is a better way. It’s called automated lighting control, and it’s transforming homes in Charlottesville, VA.
Setting the Mood
Today, one touch can change our lighting for every mood and activity. Our home automation experts at StereoTypes program buttons on in-wall keypads to transform your lighting for your daily activities. For instance, press the ‘Good Morning’ button, and the shades rise while the kitchen lights softly illuminate as the color of the morning sun.
Having company over for dinner? Press the ‘Entertain’ button, and the lighting transforms to a shimmering golden hue, while cove lighting brings soft illumination from an unseen source. Thanks to today’s dynamic full-spectrum lighting, you have access to millions of light colors, changing your home’s ambiance from playful to elegant, relaxing, or eclectic with one touch.
We’ll also program your lighting to illuminate automatically based on preset parameters. You pull into the driveway in the evening, and your landscape lights brighten, welcoming you home. You open the door, and a softly lit pathway leads you to the kitchen.
You can also use your voice to bring light to any room, dim the living room lights when it’s time for a movie, or turn on the table lamp when you settle in to read. When everyone leaves a room, your smart home saves energy by turning the lights off for you.
Of course, sometimes, the simple things make the biggest difference. It’s pressing an icon on a touchscreen by the bed to turn off every light in your home. It’s knowing the hallway lights will softly illuminate when your young children head to your bedroom in the middle of the night. When a movement is detected by the back door in the evening, your lights brighten the area in an instant.
You can use keypads, touchscreens, remotes, apps, or voice assistants to brighten and dim lights, change colors and intensities, turn lights on and off, and create a specific mood. A smart lighting control system makes every day easier, more comfortable, and secure.
