Everything You Need to Know About Smart Lighting

While the name may sound elaborate, home automation is actually a very simple way to stay connected to your home even when you can’t be there. This innovative smart technology allows you to manage every aspect of your home from your thermostat and garage doors to your appliances and locks with just the touch of a button through the Total Connect App.

With home automation from Coggin Security, you can integrate the same smart technology with your lighting. As smart lighting is rapidly increasing in popularity, here is everything you need to know if you are considering installing this smart home technology feature.

Affordable Home Automation from Coggin Security

Integrated smart lighting with a smart home security system equips you with the convenient tools you need for a more comfortable home. With easy access and greater control, you can create lighting groups to coordinate your lights by room, floor, or the entire home. You can use these custom rules to make sure your lights are only on when you want them to be. For example, set them to turn on for a personal wake-up call in the morning, or to automatically shut off when you are headed to bed.

How Does It Work?

Like other home automation features, smart lighting allows you to more efficiently manage what’s happening in your home. If you are considering updating with smart home automation, one of Coggin Security’s skilled technicians will help you replace your existing light and dimmer switches with ZWave smart switches. We also offer specialized lighting modules that can be easily integrated into your living space. Total Connect, our centralized, internet-based hub, connects all of your smart lighting fixtures so that you can have complete control over your home.

If you have ever been on vacation and forgotten to turn something off, you know that it can put a damper on your time away from home. But with smart home technology, you don’t have to worry about missing anything on the going-away checklist! Aside from being extremely convenient, smart lighting also works in conjunction with your home security system to turn on if your wireless security cameras detect motion or if your doorbell camera is activated.

Why Choose Smart Lighting

Take a minute to think about all of the lights in your home and, similarly, the number of switches and cords they entail. How much time do you spend each day making rounds turning them on or off? Not to mention, the added monthly energy expenses when you accidentally forget to cut the lights out. With smart lighting, you don’t have to worry about making your rounds. Home automation is more than just a cosmetic device; it offers a number of benefits to help make your life simpler and easier. Here’s how it can help you:

  • Remotely adjust the lighting in your home from any device, anywhere, at any time
  • Eliminate the need for traditional dimmer switches
  • Establish automated lighting schedules to fit your lifestyle
  • Set the ambiance in any room with dimmed or colored lights

Installing smart lighting is both easy and affordable, and with the initial investment, this home automation feature can actually help you save on your monthly energy expenses. If you are looking for other eco-friendly ways to help you save, replacing your traditional bulbs with LED bulbs can last significantly longer and require less energy to operate. If you aren’t ready to completely transform your living space with smart lighting, you can begin scaling at your own pace depending on what makes sense for your home and budget.
