It’s Time to Move on From the Traditional Wall Switch
You use your home’s lighting in a variety of ways. In the morning, it’s there to help you wake up. In the evening, it’s your reading partner. At night, it’s a security blanket looking over your home to get rid of dangerous unlit areas. With all these unique functions, why are you still settling on one way to control them? You can significantly enhance your lifestyle with a lighting control system that adds versatility to your San Diego, CA home. With better control options, you’ll have a safer, more efficient, and comfortable space.
Keypads & Dimmers
You’ve gone your whole life using wall switches to turn lights on and off. And there’s a certain comfort in sticking to that format. You can certainly stick to the on-wall controls you’re used to with some simple upgrades. Go beyond on/off options and install dimmers that let you adjust lighting intensity. That morning routine will be a lot smoother if you can slowly turn on the lights rather than going full force all at once.
The other significant change you can make to your on-wall controls is to go with keypads. These keypads have buttons that pull up pre-set settings. There can be an “all on/off” setting that you use at the end of the night, a reading setting that dims lights except the ones by the couch, and a welcome setting that turns lights on in the foyer and kitchen when you get home. Not only do you get customized control, but you reduce the number of switches needed, giving your home a sleeker look.
Knowing that you’ll still have those familiar wall options to go back to, it’s time to consider some more innovative ways to adjust your lighting. What if you could control all your lights from one location? See which lights you’re using and turn them on and off as needed from one device? With a lighting control system, enjoy centralized access from dedicated touchpads or your smart device of choice.
How can you take advantage of this centralized smart home control system? For one, there’s no getting mad when people leave lights on in an empty room. It’ll take just a couple taps on your screen to resolve it. If you’re heading to bed, turn lights on at your destination and the hallways beforehand, so you don’t have to walk through a dark house to get there.
With the rise in popularity of Amazon Alexa, voice control is one of the most in-demand trends in home technology. Lighting control systems offer some of the most convenient uses. Through our Control4 solutions, you can turn lights on and off with simple voice commands.
What are some great opportunities for hands-off control? If you’re coming home from the grocery store, you don’t have to put your bags down to turn lights on. Tell Alexa to turn on the lights in the hallways leading up to the kitchen. If you’re walking into a dark room, don’t waste time trying to find your keypad (though LED backlit buttons in our Control4 models help with this). Instead, use a voice command to turn the lights on as you walk in.
