A lighting control system is an innovative new piece of technology that allows homeowners to take control of their living space and primarily the lighting within that space. Some of the benefits of a Crestron lighting control system include energy savings, security and a comfortable lifestyle. Also, learning a bit about Crestron and lighting control is helpful.
According to the American Lighting Association, lighting accounts for 12-15% of the household utility bills. A Crestron lighting control system allows homeowners to save money on their energy costs over time. When lights have motion sensors and multiple control panels, it’s easy to save on energy because lights will only be on when they are being used and can be controlled when needed.
You can program your lights to turn on at a certain time or install motion sensors to illuminate when you pull into the driveway. If someone should enter your property, exterior lights will turn on to detect the trespasser. Illuminating the outside of your home is like a big sign telling potential intruders that you are watching.
Have you ever gone upstairs to bed and realize you left the kitchen light on? A Crestron lighting control system enables you to push a button at your location and control all of the lights in your home. Some systems include motion detectors that automatically turn off lights when movement has not been detected for a period of time. This is also a great way to save on energy costs.
Just by pushing a button, you can set the mood for a romantic dinner or illuminate your house inside and out for a party. If all the lights in your house are on and you have to run out quick, you can simply press the 'goodbye' scene and all the lights will turn off. You can even program it to keep certain lights on at different times of day. If you are out and coming back home, simply press the 'welcome' scene and the lights you programmed to come on will turn on automatically!
