How Many Ways Can You Control the Lights in Your Home?


As we modernize most aspects of our homes, even the most luxurious spaces tend to fall behind in one aspect: home lighting control. If you ask people how they control the lights in their home, the resounding answer is still traditional wall switches. Why not upgrade one of the most important components in your Kenilworth, Illinois home? Find out how a smart lighting solution can change the way you interact with your technology.

Upgrade the Traditional Switchers on Your Walls

Modernizing your lighting control system doesn’t have to mean abandoning the way you like to do things, simply improving it. Whether you’re using a Crestron, Control 4 or Lutron system, you still have the option of accessing your lights from switches on the wall. What changes is the amount of control you can get from those switches.

Dimmers, for example, allow you to pick out the perfect amount of light for an activity. What if one button on the wall could make multiple changes? Install keypads with pre-set scene buttons. These ‘scenes’ control multiple fixtures simultaneously and can even incorporate video, security and more.
