Automation technology is here to simplify our lives, so it makes sense for the lighting solutions at your home in St. Louis, MO, to reflect and enhance your lifestyle. At Westco Security & Technology Systems, we can help!
From easy-to-use control interfaces and smart switches to the latest and smartest light fixtures, our technology integrators have the experience, brand partnerships, and reputation that homeowners look for when upgrading their homes. But exactly what can smart lighting do for you and your home?
In this article, we explore some of the ways that smart lights improve different spaces at home and why our team of installers will get you the most out of your new lighting control system.
Just like there's an alarm system at the front and back doors, there should be lights to welcome you home and invite you and your guests to the backyard. That's why your smart home's lighting and remote management solutions must start before you even set foot inside. For example, if you arrive late from work, a tap on your phone is all it should take for every light at home to turn on, the shades to roll up, and a whole-home audio system to start playing your favorite tunes.
It may surprise you, but smart lights also play an important role in your home security systems. To better understand why, imagine you are away on vacation and there is a potential intruder pacing up and down the street. We could program your lights to help in one of two ways. First, by setting them to turn on and off on a schedule or at random intervals to give the impression that someone is always home. Or, second, by integrating them with alarms and sensors to turn on if motion is detected. Not bad for a light!
Automating smart lights opens the door to lighting scenes that optimize different rooms across your home for certain times of day. For instance, the "Working" scene in your home office turns the lights to cool, bright tones to encourage productivity. Conversely, the "Good Night" scene in your bedroom dims the lights to a soft, warm yellow to get your mind ready for bed, leading to a healthier sleep cycle and shorter recovery times.
Besides offering industry-leading brands and installation practices, we partner with local architects and designers to turn their clients' visions into reality. Whether it is a renovation or a new construction project, installing the right lights will make all the difference in the world, saving homeowners time and money in the long run. Contact us today to learn how we can help, and let's shine a new light on you and your smart home!
