Last Minute Lighting Additions

Automated lighting systems operate within the parameters of the lighting that already exist inside the structure. The automated lighting system will operate within that structure. While most controlled systems are scalable, you may want to make any adjustments or additions to your lighting before implementing the control system.


Installing new lights before you integrate the system will save you time and money down the road in upgrades and construction.

Zoned vs. Full Interior Lighting Automation

Will, you need full-interior automation or are you looking at targeting control to a small segment of the building. While full automation may seem like a good idea, you may find that you don’t need it.


Go through your house or office and identify areas where you think automated lighting would be practical.  For instance:


●        Commonly used rooms

●        Rooms where you want to create a certain mood

●        Areas where people continuously leave the light on

●        Security areas

●        Entryways or exits


The examples above are common areas where we install automated lighting systems. If a room or area does not fit into those categories, you may consider whether you need automated lighting in the room.

Shading and Thermostats

Lighting control can incorporate motion and occupancy sensors to turn on and off lights automatically. Automated lighting can also work hand-in-hand with window shades and thermostats. If a sensor detects too much sunlight in a room, or if the temperature exceeds a certain threshold, the shades automatically descend or move side to side. They will also open to harvest daylight and warmth from the winter sun while triggering lights to turn off.


You can sync the lights to work with both shades and the thermostat to develop a complete energy-efficient system that operates depending on the level of sunlight or the temperature in the room. The lights can work in conjunctions with almost any other automated system you have including window treatment, thermostat, or the security system.

Wall and Remote Control

Automated lighting systems now include both programmable wall units and smartphone remote control. Both options come with full programmable control, integration features, scheduling, and zoning options.


If you sync the automated lighting with your security system, you can program the lights to come on when something triggers the alarm. This feature allows you to see who is entering your home or business when you get a notification via your security system.
