23 Nov Top 4 Benefits of Lighting Control System 2019 | Energy Saving
Lighting control systems, which include both lights and shading components, have several benefits that you may not be aware of.
The most obvious benefit is convenience, wherein there is no need to go to a switch to turn a light on, and no need to close a blind or draw a curtain to block out unwanted light. At first, it may seem like an excess, a way of avoiding doing something that is easily done. But the more you become used to it, the less likely you are to want to return to any manual method of altering your lighting.
A lighting control system will allow you to adjust the settings to your heart’s content. If it is too bright outside, you can block out the light as necessary, and maintain a pleasant level of light in the room. There’s always that one particular time of day where the sun shines through and hits you straight in the face – lighting control can help prevent this.
In the evening as it begins to get dark, your lights can gradually come on, maintaining a comfortable light level as the night progresses. No more tweaking the dimmer!
Within a home automation system, you can even set up configurations for “movie time”. You can automatically dim the lights to enhance your viewing experience.
Safety and security
Lighting control can be activated in an assortment of ways, including voice activation, as well as being based on a schedule or on the proximity of the homeowner. This means the lights can be switched on ready for you to come home, saving you from walking into darkness.
Similarly, the lights can come on and shades can be closed based on other triggers, providing enhanced security should you not be home. Is a potential thief willing to attempt to break in if the lights have just come on?
Outdoor lighting can also activate if the presence of a person is detected, which is another deterrent to would-be crooks.
Lights can be configured to only be on when necessary. If you constantly switch rooms, the lights can come on as you enter and go off a few seconds after you leave, thereby reducing your energy bills. Additionally, by using dimmer functions, you can save even more money by producing less light to begin with.
And don’t forget, if you go to sleep with the lights on, your lighting control system can be configured to turn them off when they are no longer needed.
