San Diego Lighting Control
There are many ways you can turn your house into a smart home. Maybe your preference is to control your home entertainment system on your iPad. Or maybe you are on the way home and you want to remotely set your thermostat to a more comfortable temperature so when you get home you won’t have to worry about it.
One of the more basic platforms of home automation is lighting control, which can seamlessly help you set the mood and personalize your home the way you want it to be. Let’s say you want to set the lighting for a party, or watching a movie, or brighter light for doing your makeup, or even highlight certain decorations in your home with spotlighting. With one simple push of a button on your iPad, you can accomplish all of this.
Chances are, if you have not done any updating to your home lighting, you are likely using standard incandescent or halogen lamps. The first step in updating to a more modern system would be to replace these outdated lamps with light emitting diode (LED) bulbs. The cost of LED lamps is a little bit higher than incandescent or halogen lamps, but they last a lot longer, and also save you when you get your energy bill every month due to their energy efficiency.
A huge plus of home lighting automation is that things can be done remotely. If you are on vacation, and are concerned about your home security, turn your lights on to mimic regular behavior at your home. Turn on the music, so potential burglars will assume people are home.
After installing LED bulbs for your home lighting, Sound Ideas installs network-enabled devices and light switches to start the integration process into your smart home. In our version of home automation, everything is integrated into one app seamlessly so you will not have to go to separate apps for control of each set of devices. Ease of use and simplicity is the goal.
