How to Use Smart Lighting to Boost Your Interior Design

Of all the things interior designers take into account when working on your Westlake, Texas home, lighting is often one of the most critical components.

Make their job easier with a lighting control system that helps you find the perfect setting for all your lights while reducing unsightly clutter on the walls.

Reduce Wall Acne With Centralized Control

Very few people can argue with the practical benefits of having centralized control of all your lights. From a touchpad, tablet or smartphone you can access any fixture in your home. But there are a lot of stylistic benefits to centralized control as well.

Ever get inspiration for your interior design by browsing fashion magazines? You’ll notice there are never switches or outlets on the walls. While you can’t eliminate outlets without some help from Photoshop, you can certainly do so with your switches. Centralize control to a stylish touchpad flush-mounted on the wall. Whether you’re going for a modern look or a more rustic feeling, you can always do away with some of the wall clutter.

Highlight Your Home’s Best Features

With intuitive control, you can also play around with your lighting arrangements. Have overhead lights for routine activities and focused LED fixtures to highlight works of art, furniture, or architectural features. You can adjust what you want to showcase at the touch of a button.

5 Ways to Manage Your Lights With Smart Control

5 Ways to Manage Your Lights With Smart Control

Developments in smart technology have changed the way we interact with our homes. Whether you’re investing in full automation or smart lighting, it’s all about creating intuitive solutions that make your space more beautiful and efficient. Since it’s one of the easiest to install and it involves technology we use every day, home lighting control is usually one of the first smart systems embraced by homeowners. In this blog, we'll take a look at some of the ways it helps you upgrade from the traditional wall switches cluttering up your Southlake, Texas home.

Dedicated Touchpad: Instead of dealing with a handful of switches on the walls, all of your fixtures can be accessed from a user interface on a dedicated touchpad. At the press of a button, choose the room you want to manage and which fixtures you'd like to adjust. You can either turn lights on and off or change their intensity. With a Vantage system, you can adjust lights from 0-100% to find the setting you like best.

Mobile App: If you already have a smart device that you’re comfortable with, you can use that instead of a touchpad. The same interface found on your touchpad can be used on a smartphone or tablet. The mobile app also comes with one huge perk: remote access.

You can access your home lighting control system even when you’re away. Notice that you left a light on when you left the house? You can turn it off using your phone no matter where you are.

Sensors: Occupancy sensors have been used in commercial lighting for years, but are just recently transitioning to the residential market. If your home lighting control system realizes that a room has been unoccupied for an extended period, all the lights can automatically turn off.
Daylight sensors are also used. These types of sensors work by ‘stabilizing’ the amount of light in a room. Once natural light reaches a certain threshold, your lights will dim or shut off to avoid using artificial light when it’s not necessary.
