What is smart lighting and how can it save you money?

Smart lighting isn’t just smart, it’s brilliant.

Smart lighting can transform your home, bringing convenience, ambiance, and elegance, all while saving you money.

Remote controlled, automated, or responsive, it will change how your home looks and feels, all at the touch of a button.

Your home, your lights, your choice

Smart lighting gives you total control over where and when your lights come on.

Imagine your lights slowly turn on in the morning, gradually waking you up, allowing you to gently come out of your sleep, ready for a new day.

Or as the sun sets, smart lighting can tell how dark it’s getting outside, and adjust the brightness accordingly.

Pre-set “scenes” can be designed, customisable to your liking. Imagine simply hitting the Movie button and the lights dim, setting the mood for a night on the sofa with your loved one.

Or a Bedtime scene which sets the security lights on outside the house, but turns everything else off inside, as you get ready for bed.

Different ambiance settings in different parts of the home are all possible and only held back by your imagination.

An extra level of security

The lighting in your home is an important part of your safety and security, but with smart lighting, you never have to worry about the dark again!

You can switch on the lights from your car as you arrive home, have them on timers so they come on whether you’re home or not, or even have motion sensors activate them when you walk up to the front door.

Once inside, there’s no need to fumble for a light switch, everything is set up so you’re never in the dark. Awkward steps, garden paths, cluttered porches – they’re all illuminated before you even get there, so there’s no fear of tripping.

Security lights will also let you know who’s lurking where they shouldn’t be, and smart lighting inside your home can even create a “mockupancy”, which makes it look like somebody’s home, even if you’re on the other side of the world.

Save money

If you’re always shouting at the kids for leaving lights on, then this is the perfect answer!

Smart lighting can put an end to energy wastage in your home by running your lights at their peak efficiency or turning them off when not needed.

Motion sensors can tell when a room is empty and switch lights off accordingly, or follow you from room to room, lighting the way as you go.

This is great if you need to get up in the middle of the night. Smart lighting can turn on dimmed lights, allowing you to see where you’re going, but not bright enough to wake others.

All these little differences add up to a lot over time, and when you look back over the year, you’ll be surprised at just how much you have saved on your power bill.

All with the touch of a button

When we install smart lighting in a home, we use the Control4 system to bring it all together.

With customised scenes and settings, all it takes is one touch of a button to transform your home into something magical.

Or if you have a device like Alexa or Siri, a simple voice command does the trick!

And because Control4 operates everything in the house, all systems can be worked in conjunction with one another.

Imagine saying “Goodnight house” and the lights go out, the doors lock, and the alarm system activates!

It’s like a sci-fi movie!

With the Control4 system providing an easy way to control every light—inside or outside—from a single interface, you’ll wonder how you ever managed without smart lighting in your home.
