Make the Most of Smart Lighting 

Are you tired of fumbling around in the dark trying to find the light switch? Or perhaps you're looking to create the perfect ambiance in your home with just the touch of a button. 

Whatever your lighting needs are, a lighting control system like Lutron or Control4 can revolutionize how you interact with lights in your Austin, TX, home. Let’s explore how you can transform your space with a customized lighting control system.

Lighting Scenes to Try 

One of the most exciting features of a lighting control system is the ability to create lighting scenes. Lighting scenes allow you to set the perfect ambiance for any occasion or mood, activated with a single tap of a button or command. Try the following ideas: 

  • Movie Night: Create a cozy atmosphere in your home theater by dimming the lights and turning on a soft accent light behind the TV.
  • Dinner Party: Instantly set the mood for an elegant dinner party by dimming the lights in the dining room and adding warm, indirect lighting.
  • Good Morning: Wake up gently with an automated scene that gradually increases the brightness in your bedroom and raises motorized shades. 
  • Goodnight: Prepare your home for a restful night's sleep by turning off all the lights with a single button press.

Automate to Your Lifestyle 

Lighting control systems can also automate lights based on time, occupancy, or other triggers. For example, you can set your lights to automatically turn on when you enter a room and turn off when you leave. Lutron’s premium lighting fixtures Ketra and Ivalo gently fade on and off, so it never feels abrupt. 

Replace On/Off Switches 

Are you tired of playing a guessing game with all the switches on the wall? You can consolidate switches into handy keypads with custom buttons like “Morning” and “Dinner” that create the exact mood you desire. Lutron and Control4 offer stylish backlit buttons that help you see in the dark. And if you want to save time, an “All Off” or “Away” button shuts off the entire house as you head out the door. Now that’s convenient!
