3 Smart Lighting Benefits You Likely Never Thought About

Convenience and Energy Efficiency Aren’t the Only Reasons to Upgrade to Smart Lighting Control

A smart lighting system offers unrivaled convenience and energy efficiency when compared to traditional lighting control by allowing homeowners to command and customize the lights in any room, at any time, from anywhere. And while convenience and energy efficiency are rave-worthy benefits of smart lighting control, that’s just the beginning.

If you already have a lighting control system in your Bountiful, UT home or are considering an upgrade, make sure you make the most of it by taking advantage of these lesser-known smart lighting benefits.

Elevated Ambiance

Well-designed lighting typically balances three elements: ambient lighting, task lighting, and accent lighting. Ambient lighting includes overhead lights or natural daylight while task lighting includes concentrated sources like lamps. Accent lighting functions mostly as decoration to highlight artwork or architecture. When these elements exist in your lighting design and are integrated into a smart lighting control system, you can use one-tap scenes that instantly create interest and ambiance in every room.

A “Dinner” scene can dim overhead lights to 50% and illuminate low-hung pendants around the dining room table to encourage everyone to gather. An “Entertain” scene can turn off lights in unused rooms, illuminate the patio, and brighten your accent lights to bring attention to key elements of your home. In this way, light becomes more than just an aid for sight but an ingredient for elevated ambiance.

Improved Security

We all know a dark home is an attractive target for potential burglars. Exterior lighting is a great deterrent to thieves who hope to stay hidden in darkness. Exterior lighting also draws attention to your home, which can increase the chance that a neighbor sees a potential burglar in action if you’re away.

With a smart lighting control system, you can program your exterior lights to turn on automatically after sunset and turn back off in the morning. You can also integrate motion sensors that trigger floodlights to turn on when movement is detected on your property. Additionally, if you’re away from home and need to turn on your porch lights for pet sitters or house cleaners, you can do so remotely.

Increased Property Value

No matter the look or size of your property, landscape lighting adds style and dimension. Bullet lights, floodlights, string lights, step lights, downlights, and more emphasize your home’s best features to add dynamic flair after dark to an otherwise undistinguished exterior. When your landscape lighting is well designed, you add value to your home, which may offer a competitive advantage when it comes time to sell your property.

Optimize your landscape lighting with smart lighting control. One-tap scenes can customize the look you desire, whether it’s an ultra-bright exterior for holidays and parties or a subtle illuminance for summer evenings and front yard gatherings at sunset. Smart lighting control makes commanding your dynamic exterior lighting design a breeze with just a couple taps on your preferred control device.
