Lighting Controls are not just about illuminating a room, it is about ambiance. We have all seen romantic comedies where the mood is set by dimming the lights and turning on the electric candles and fireplace. This type of feeling is not just the result of Hollywood magic. It is the result of a well-designed electrical lighting display in your home.
Controlling your lighting display can be as simple as a basic dimming device added to your light switch and as complicated as a remote-controlled lighting system that controls the strength of the lights, the temperature of the room, and the function of your small appliances. Now with state-of-the-art technology, you can have complete control over your lighting with any smart device. With the help of a qualified electrician, such as CME Electrical Contractors, the sky’s the limit!
Lighting control stations allow us to control your entire home through one centralized station. You can dim your lights, turn on the outdoor lighting, and even operate appliances from one central box with ease. These often allow remote as well as keypad access, making it convenient and easy to operate.
Timers are an easy way to reduce your energy consumption both indoors and outdoors. Based on your overall activities and need, you can set your lights to turn on and off. Timers are often used for holiday lighting, outdoor lights, and lighting the home when you are away for an extended period, giving the appearance as though you are home.
When you walk into a room, it would be helpful if the lights were automatically turned on. With room occupancy sensors this can be a reality. As motion is sensed, the room occupancy sensors will trigger the room’s lights to turn on. This can help you avoid tripping over toys, stepping on Legos, or, as you may be half asleep, even finding the restroom in the middle of the night.
Whether it be a romantic date night or putting the kids to sleep, dimmers allow you to adjust the lighting in the room for any occasion. They make it possible for you to utilize some light while increasing the ambiance and saving energy.
Wired lighting solutions allow you to control all of the lights in your home through wired options. Items like programmable keypads can help you program your light switches for up to seven days. Digital lamp timers or programmable timers allow you to control your lighting devices while saving energy.
