Automated Lighting

Automated lighting allows a central controller to operate the lights, adding convenience, security and energy savings to your home.  For more ideas, see our Scene Lighting page, or read our short article in Builder/Architect magazine.

An automated lighting system provides the following benefits:

  • Timed control of all lights.  The lighting system calculates sunrise and sunset for each day based on your city, and even takes into account Daylight Savings Time. 
  • Outside lights turn on at dusk
  • Outside lights turn off at preset times or dawn
  • When you leave during the day and arm your security system to AWAY mode, all inside lights turn off
  • If you leave during the evening then most lights turn off, but key lights are left on in order to simulate a lived-in look
  • While you are away in the evening the lights turn on and off in different rooms in order to give your home a lived-in look.  This routine varies randomly from day to day.
  • Lights turn on automatically when you enter a room
  • Lights can be programmed to turn off automatically
  • Lights can flash to signal the doorbell or the phone ringing
  • Lights can be turned on if the security system detects an intruder
  • Much more...
