Keep Your Home Safe & Energy Bills Low with a Smart Lighting System

Lesser-Known Benefits of Smart Lighting Control

Keep Your Home Safe & Energy Bills Low with a Smart Lighting System

Smart lighting can offer much more than a fun party trick. Yes, you can adjust your lights to transform rooms with any color and brightness level you desire. But a smart lighting system like Lutron or Savant offers real, practical benefits that make everyday life easier and safer. 

In this blog, we’ll share how lighting control can keep your Altadena, CA home safe while simultaneously saving energy. In many cases, you won’t have to lift a single finger—automated scenes take care of safety and energy settings for you! So whether you’re at home or away on vacation, smart technology can manage your lights for you. Learn how below!

How Smart Lighting Protects Your Home 

Besides installing surveillance cameras and alarms, smart lighting is one of the wisest investments you can make to protect your property. Consider how vulnerable your house may look to a burglar if it’s dark all day, weekend, or week while you’re out of town. If someone is scoping out the neighborhood for a potential target, the darkest house on the block will be their first choice. 

With smart lighting, you can schedule lights to automatically flicker indoors and outside throughout the day and night. Landscape lights will shed light on your driveway and front steps, and indoor lights will make it appear as though someone’s always inside.

You can even program motorized shades to raise and lower throughout the day, mimicking an occupied house. If your security system is breached, lights can flash red, signaling to the authorities that something is wrong while scaring off trespassers. 

Even if you live in a nice neighborhood, Los Angeles County experiences its fair share of crime. In Altadena, 14 out of 1,000 residents may experience a property crime each year. Smart lighting can grant you and your family invaluable peace of mind. 

…And Lowers Your Energy Bills, Too! 

Not only will smart lighting help the environment, but it can also reduce your monthly electric bills! Automated scenes turn off your home’s lights when not needed, following your daily schedule. You won’t even need to remember to turn them off! We can sync lights to occupancy sensors, too, so if a room is empty for a lengthy period, lights will shut off. 

And if you left the house in a hurry and forgot to turn off the lights? Simply open your Lutron or Savant app, check which lights are on, and power them off in one quick tap on the screen. Smart LEDs also use vastly less energy than incandescent or CFL bulbs, so you’ll instantly start lowering energy consumption once you switch.
