The Unmatched Benefits of Smart Lighting Control

Make the management of your home’s light simple with a smart lighting system

The Unmatched Benefits of Smart Lighting Control

Light is the most used technology in our homes. Every day, we switch our lighting fixtures on and off. But why do we limit our control options to just on and off when we can adjust the color and intensity of our lighting?

Smart lighting control allows you to customize every fixture in your home to set the mood for any occasion. From your smart device of choice, you can easily create stunning lighting designs that respond to the tap of a button. And the benefits don’t just end with beauty. This blog breaks down three benefits of smart lighting control in your Southlake, TX home.


Remote Access

Smart lighting control systems allow you to access the lights in your home from anywhere in the world. Imagine the convenience of having a light switch by your bedside taken to a whole new level. Control every zone and fixture from an intuitive interface that allows you to adjust the lights while in your bedroom or on vacation. Use your smartphone, tablet, remote control, or another device to control your lighting!

Hands-Free Control

Program your lights to change automatically for complete hands-free control. For example, schedule your lighting to dim at 9 PM to promote rest and relaxation, and the outdoor lights to turn on automatically when the sun goes down. Have trouble waking up in the morning? Have your lights slowly illuminate at 7 AM to wake you up for the day gently.

Another way to enjoy hands-free control of your lighting is through voice control. Many smart lighting systems integrate seamlessly with popular voice control systems like Amazon Alexa, Google, and more for added convenience. Simply say, “Alexa, turn on the lights,” and your home will brighten as if by magic.

You can even integrate sensors with your lighting to automate control. For example, install outdoor lights that brighten when motion is detected, making it safe to transverse your property after dark and improving your home’s security by detecting intruders. Use geo-location to automatically turn on the outside lights when your phone or mobile device reaches a certain location, such as your garage. Or, have your lights turn off automatically when your phone leaves the property to save energy!


A smart lighting system does more than add convenience to your life; it also adds beauty to your home! By adjusting the hues and intensity of your fixtures, you can highlight your home's decor and architectural features to create a layered lighting design that brings out the best in your interiors.
