If you’ve gone on an extended vacation before, you may have thought about how your home appears to would-be robbers. Most criminals are highly unlikely to break into a home if it appears that someone is inside, which is why a home automation system can be programmed to turn your lights on and off at set times to simulate someone living in the home even when you are hundreds of miles away.
Green lighting controls can save you money on your energy bills every month. In larger homes, lights can account for a large portion of your bill. In some cases, natural light is plenty of light for a room and a green lighting control system can detect this and turn the lights off automatically. Your lights can also be turned off remotely, set on a timer, or only turned on for rooms currently in use.
We’ve all been there: you wake up at night or come into your home late at night and can’t see a thing. In the middle of the night, you may not want your lights to be on full, so the lights could be turned on at a dimmer setting than normal. Wandering around in the night can be dangerous, especially near staircases. Green lighting controls can detect your movement and turn on the lights only where necessary. If you would rather have dimmed lights after a certain time, that can be setup as well.
