No smart home is complete without an intelligent lighting control system. This specialized setup saves time, adds convenience, reduces energy consumption, and maximizes aesthetics. A family’s complete lighting needs can be controlled with the single touch of a button – that means no more flipping of light switches on and off, one by one. We can also help homeowners put their lighting on autopilot, establishing set lighting schemes that best suit each time of day. And, of course, our St. Charles lighting control solutions can reduce energy consumption by managing which lights are on at various points throughout the day.
At Home-Tech, we love helping homeowners experience the future of smart lighting. Utilizing the latest technologies in lighting control, we make home lighting management as simple and convenient as possible. One of the features of an automatic lighting system is a morning setting that turns on a pre-selected series of lights throughout the house. No more stumbling through a dark hallway just to get to the kitchen to turn on the coffee. These same lights can be turned off when it’s time to leave by pressing one button.
Lights can even be set to change tones throughout the day. In the morning, the lights can utilize warmer tones. Lights can then automatically change to cooler temperatures to help individuals feel more energized during the daytime. At night, lights can switch back to warmer tones to promote rest.

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, using dimmers, motion sensors, occupancy sensors, timers, and other lighting controls can help save energy and money. These devices can perform a variety of tasks, from automatically turning off lights to dimming light bulbs.
There are several types of lighting control devices available, including:
- Dimmers – Used to reduce light levels when full brightness isn’t necessary, which decreases their wattage and output.
- Occupancy sensors – Designed to turn on automatically when someone comes into a room and to turn off when the room is unoccupied.
- Photosensors - A great option for those who struggle to remember to turn off the lights, since they prevent lights from operating during daylight hours.

Installing a lighting control system can also add security to a home. A simple way to make a home safer is to install security lighting, which utilizes a motion sensor to automatically turn lights on for a short period when it detects movement. Timers are another option, which turn lights on and off at specific times. For advanced protection, homeowners may wish to use active lighting and scene changes to make a home look occupied even when it’s not.
