Bring Beauty and Ease to Your Home with Automated Lighting

Manage Your Home’s Lighting Effortlessly with a Lighting Control System

Bring Beauty and Ease to Your Home with Automated Lighting

According to Straits Research, the global smart lighting market was valued at over $14.7 billion in 2021 and is projected to reach over $94 billion by 2030. That’s a whopping compound annual growth rate of 22.9%. Why the tremendous growth in smart lighting? 

In a nutshell, these systems offer enhanced beauty, reduced energy usage, convenience, and safety. Let’s explore the makings of a lighting control system and what it can do for your home in Southlake, TX.

Gone are the light switches and dimmers placed inside every room. In their place are designated touchscreens, elegant in-wall keypads, handheld remotes, and your voice. With one touch, you can turn on and off every light in your home or illuminate the reading lamp in the living room.

Are your hands full with groceries? Ask your voice assistant to turn on the entryway and kitchen lights. Are friends coming over for dinner? Tap the “Dinner” button and watch as your lighting transforms to the perfect hue and color temperature in every room.   

Reduced Energy Usage

Thanks to sensors and preset schedules, your home’s lighting responds automatically. Did someone forget to turn the lights off when they left for the day? Your smart home knows the home’s unoccupied and turns off all the lights except those providing security. Is the diffuse light of the sun filling a room with warmth and beauty? Your lights respond to the changing light, dimming to the appropriate level. 

The growing use of dynamic full-spectrum LED lights also leads to considerable energy savings. The U.S. Department of Energy reports that LED lights use up to 75% less energy and last about 25 times longer than incandescent bulbs.   


Typical light sources produce a single-color temperature that can't change. Dynamic spectrum lighting gives you access to the visible spectrum of colors or about 17 million different colors of light. Now, lighting plays an even greater role in your home’s design, setting the stage for every activity and task. 

When it’s time to relax, tap the "Relaxation" icon, and the lighting in your living room transforms to the color of the Caribbean Sea or the soft amber glow of a setting sun. If your lighting is integrated with your home automation platform, this same icon can start your “Peaceful” playlist streaming through your home.


Smart lighting control allows for unique safety features. Using geofencing, a virtual perimeter around your home enables your smart home to detect when you enter and leave the “zone.” Now, your front entryway and landscape lights illuminate when you pull into the driveway.

This same system helps keep your home safe when you're away on vacation. Schedule the "Away" program, and at varying times your lighting turns on and off and motorized shades raise and lower, making it look like your home is occupied.
