Your computer is on a network. You network for your job. But did you know that you can also network the lighting in your house or office? A lighting control system is a networked system of devices for controlling the lights in your home or business. These devices can include occupancy sensors, light control switches, touchscreens and more.
A good lighting control system has a number of benefits:
Save energy, save money
A lighting control system properly installed by experienced residential electric contractors can save energy by automatically turning off or dimming lights based on a variety of factors – whether or not there’s anyone in a room, available daylight, etc. You’ll never have to worry again whether you remembered to turn off the lights after leaving a room. By saving energy, you’re also saving money on your electric bills. Here’s how to use a home switchboard circuit breaker if you’re planning to buy one for your home.
A lighting control system lets you turn lights off and on with a simple press of a button. You don’t even have to be home! A free app from Shore Home Solutions will let you control your home or business lighting from wherever you happen to be.
Imagine this: you get an alert on your phone from your surveillance system, letting you know that motion has been detected on your property. You use your remote lighting control system to turn on all of the lights in your home and watch the intruder flee!
If you’re ready to install a lighting control system in your home or business, contact a commercial electrician to install them for you.
