Smart Lighting Makes Your Mandeville Home More Energy Efficient
When it comes to smart lighting control, most homeowners are excited about the ease and convenience. You can adjust any light in your home from your smartphone, which opens up new interior design possibilities as you discover new ways to light your space. But there’s another valuable aspect of smart lighting control, and when we say valuable, we mean literal value for your wallet. Smart lighting control helps you lower your energy bill by making it simple to monitor and adjust the energy usage of your lighting fixtures, which is both good for your bank account and the environment.
Read on to learn about the different ways smart lighting control can help reduce the carbon footprint of your Mandeville home.
Set Energy-Saving Scenes
Smart lighting control allows you to program specific scenes that adjust the brightness, temperature, and even color of your light sources. You can create a scene that dims the lights for occasions that don’t demand full brightness, which cuts down on the electricity used by your bulbs. Used in conjunction with ambient light sensors, your fixtures automatically adjust to the amount of sunlight in a room, so you don’t even need to take action to see regular decreases in power usage.
Check If Lights Are Left OnHow many times have you come home to an empty house with lights on everywhere? Your kids don’t understand how much you end up paying when they leave the lights on in their bedrooms while they’re at school, but with smart lighting control, you can turn off any unnecessary lights in your home from anywhere with an Internet connection. When you get into the office, open your control app on your smartphone to see which lights were left off and switch them off with a simple push of a button.
No People, No LightsYou can turn off lights through your app, but if you want to eliminate a step, there are multipurpose sensors that can recognize when a room is empty and shut off or dim bulbs automatically. Those can be the same sensors that detect ambient light, providing two different ways for you to save on your energy spending. You can program your scenes to react to occupancy sensors in various ways. For your morning scene, occupancy sensors can turn off any lights in empty spaces. In the evening, those same sensors can dim the bulbs so that rooms are still illuminated but conserving energy.
