You probably wouldn’t be surprised to learn that a well-lit home is much less likely to become the target of criminal activity. Combining smart lighting control and precise lighting design can ensure your property remains illuminated, even in ways that you wouldn’t expect.
A smart lighting control system will control every fixture in your home, from lamps and wall-mounts to back- and accent-lighting under staircases and along walkways. With the touch of a button, you can brighten any space, including your backyard and entryways.
Additionally, systems like Lutron have automatic "away" modes that make it look like you've never left the house. The system will alternate lights on and off throughout your home at realistic intervals, implying that the home is occupied, even when you're miles away.
Speaking of lighting design, you can get even more out of it with your smart control system. Adjust zones to create dynamic effects, then save the look as a “scene” and return to it in an instant whenever you like. You can transform the look of your home with the touch of a button.
And modern systems go beyond brightness and dimming capabilities. You can adjust the intensity to change how the light interacts with the colors of your interior design. Change the color temperature of the lights while the illumination remains white and notice how softer light brings out certain features of your space, while harsher light makes it look completely different.
A crucial benefit of adjustable color temperature is that it helps promote wellness throughout the day. A tunable system will mimic the way sunlight changes in intensity from sunrise to sunset, which naturally prompts responses from your body. Typically, you’re most awake and active in the morning and ready for rest as the sun goes down. Your tunable lighting control system automatically accommodates these needs from when you wake up to when you go back to bed.
