Why Use Home Lighting Automation?

Lighting is being used more and more often to complement architectural and interior design ideas in home design. Good lighting design gives you a transformed appreciation of colour, texture, proportion and space. It can also change the way you feel in that space, as humans are very receptive to changes in light.


Smart home lighting lets you set the feel and tone of any space for different times of the day, with one-touch scenes and individual circuit control when you need it. An open plan kitchen-living area may have one-touch scenes for arriving home, dining, TV watching and entertaining. Sensors may automatically activate dimming late at night when entering ensuites or hallways, responding to you more organically, or your outdoor pool terrace may have vibrant lighting before dinner and then more subdued lighting for drinks or a late night dip. Colour adjustable lighting can also provide highlights to vegetation, wall features and surfaces for beautiful and subtle transitions.

How Smart Home Lighting Works

Each transition is possible with the press of a button, dynamically activated by smart sensors or automatically scheduled by time of day and occupancy state of the home. Home lighting automation is a world of difference compared to having just ‘one look’ on/off manual switching for every circuit.


Smart home lighting control really comes into its own in large homes, allowing you to effortlessly set the ambience for the occasion or turn off unused areas of the home from key locations such as a kitchen touchscreen, TV menu or the convenience of a smartphone. You can even use ‘all-off’ scenes when going to bed.


When integrated with your security system, you can have automatic ‘welcome home’ lighting into the home when you arrive in the dark, or deterrent lighting for an alarm event. The home can even have an occupancy pattern of lighting at night when away on holidays. Even your motorised blinds can be controlled from the same intelligent light switches, consolidating your control and reducing control clutter on your walls.


With intelligent home lighting automation, your home will feel more delightful and be far easier to manage.

Lighting is no longer just a utility for your home. It’s an aesthetic that creates an ideal movie-viewing experience for your family, provides an ambiance that is lively for a gathering of guests, adds cheer to your holiday season, and even sets the perfect mood for a date night.

It’s not a switch. It’s not a bulb. It’s about setting the perfect scene—every time.
