An integrated system, along with motorized shades and draperies, enables you to adjust the aesthetics to your liking. Instead of merely turning on / off various lights in the house, the system can work together in any combination to offer preset sequences or prearranged schedules. You can program scenes for scenarios like “reading,” “cocktail party,” or “movie viewing.” Imagine hosting a party and pressing one button to light the interior and exterior of your house in the most attractive manner.
With lighting accounting for about 20% of the energy used in a home, giving homeowner’s greater control over lighting means significant savings in energy bills. Occupancy sensors, dimmers, and timers are more than lifestyle conveniences. They also slash wasted energy use by eliminating lights burning needlessly in empty rooms, allowing lighting levels to be adjusted to the occasion, and turning lights on and off by schedule.
