Lighting Control systems allow homeowners to set lighting “scenes” for individual zones throughout their homes, and to control them with a smart phone or handheld device . For example, you could turn off all the lights in your home from one location when it’s time to go to sleep. Lighting Control also allows you to program lighting sequences that provide optimal lighting and safety when you enter or leave your home. Via the Internet, you could even control your whole-home lighting system from a smart phone or handheld device, while you were away.
In addition to providing convenience and safety, Lighting Control also saves you money through energy efficiency and the cost of new bulbs. Programmed lighting ensures that lights are off when not in use. Dimmer controls help to use less electricity. And advanced switches help prevent premature light bulb burnout by gradually ramping up the power to the bulb when a light is switched on.
