We are all used to using switches and knobs for turning the lights on and off and for dimming them.
Imagine what it will be like to perform all of these functions automatically from any part of the house. This is now possible with home automation.
You can control the lighting in any way you like and even schedule the lights when to turn on and off. This brings a range of superb benefits.
Home Automation and Lighting for a More Comfortable Home EnvironmentYou come home after a long day at work. Imagine being able to simply press a button and all the lights in the living room plus the TV will be turned on automatically. You just need to sit in your favourite armchair and relax.
You can pick from a variety of lighting modes to create the ideal atmosphere with home automation. You can have all the lights in the room turned on if you want to work.
You can make the living room more romantic with dimmed lighting. You can automatically switch all outdoor lights on for a great garden party.It is possible to turn the lights on and off with voice commands. This is particularly useful for elderly and disabled people.
You can even set the lights to be turned on automatically at a specific schedule when you are not at home. This is an effective measure for keeping burglars away.
It's also possible to have a special panic button for turning all the lights in the house on, if you suspect that a burglar has broken in your house.Another option is connecting the lighting to the fire sensing system in your home. That way, should there ever be a problem, you will get not only a sound alert, but a visual alert as well.
Home Automation for Saving Energy by Controlling Lighting
Leaving the lights on when you are not in the room can increase your electricity bill considerably, especially if you have a big home. When your home is automated, you will not have to worry about wasting energy ever again.
You can simply set the lighting so that each and every lamp goes off the moment the last person leaves the room. Home automation is a thing of the present and not a thing of the future.
You can automate your home and enjoy all of these benefits every day.
