Lighting Control Systems
Z-Wave Can Turn Any Home Into a Smart Home
In an automated home, the lighting control system has three functions: to pare down power usage; to keep residents comfortable and safe; and to accommodate resident preferences, ultimately streamlining their schedules and routines. Lighting control systems enable users to set lighting schedules, control lighting settings, and turn lighting on or off. Best of all, all of these functions may be performed remotely, because lighting control systems connect wirelessly to the hub.
Today, lighting control systems are used both in private smart homes and across all business sectors. Lighting control systems maximize energy savings for homeowners and large organizations alike, while simultaneously satisfying modern building codes and complying with energy conservation guidelines. By allowing one user to control multiple light sources, the need for manual switching is decreased significantly – or even entirely. Lights can be programmed to turn on or off at certain times, and can be synchronized with the garage door and motion sensors. Smart timers and sensors, when connected to smart lighting systems, enable a “lived-in” look even when the resident is far from home.
And this feature comes in handy in business settings as well - conference room lights, for example, can be programmed to turn on upon entry and then shut off when the room empties.
Interestingly, lighting control systems also play a large role in theatrical lighting. When integrated with a theatre’s dimmers and on/off controls, lighting control systems can be used for house lights and stage lighting, and can even be connected, synchronized, and programmed to work in tandem with sound systems.
Investing in a smart home—and a smart lighting control system—makes sense for a number of reasons. To put it succinctly, smart homes save users time, money, and stress. The smart lighting control systems of today connect seamlessly to your smart home network. Z-Wave home automation technology systems, for example, are compatible with all major lighting control systems, making setup and everyday use streamlined and innate. With a lighting control system, you’ll never return to a dark home again.
