Home Control Is Not Lighting Automation
Walk the aisles of Home Depot, and you will find an aisle of smart switches and intelligent thermostats. Smart switches are not lighting automation. Controlling lighting loads with your smart phone is not an evolutionary advance over flipping a switch. When people ask me about lighting control, I tell them about home automation. The goal is not to increase the number of lighting controls. The goal is to eliminate them. That is what automation is: action without human intervention.
Home Lighting Automation as Mood Elevator
Your car knows when it is dark outside. Your car turns on the lights when it is dark outside. Why should your home be any different? The light fails outside as night falls. You suddenly find yourself sitting in a dark room in a dark house. It’s a sad feeling. The light fades as the passage of time sneaks up on you. Your home could be more sensitive to your needs. Fight the darkness with lighting automation. With a lighting automation system your home will never be dark and gloomy again. The bonus is that you never need flip a switch or touch a button. As long as you wish it, the automated home just keeps running the program. As daylight fades, warm interior lights spring into luminescence.
Home Lighting Automation as a Sound Investment
A light switch, however ‘smart’, doesn’t know you are there. The lighting automation system knows when you are at home and where you are in the home. An array of occupancy sensors detect where you are in the home and bring the light to you without flipping a switch or touching a button. When you leave a room, the automated home detects your absent and turns off the lights without a thought or effort on your part. This saves not only effort but also energy and money. A lighting automation system alone can reduce your electric bill by as much as ten percent, while a whole home automation system can reduce energy consumption by as much as a third.
Home Lighting Automation as Security
Home control is great when you want to take the driver’s seat, but what about when you are not home to control your lights? What about when a burglar is casing your home as you are away on vacation? This, again, is where the lighting automation system shines. The lighting automation program keeps running even when you are away, making it appears as if you are home when you are not. Home lighting automation systems are security systems.
