Why Lighting Control Benefits Your Home or Business Space

Image-28-of-36-1

Lighting control has risen to become a popular amenity among both home and business owners across the nation. While there are many broader benefits to having a lighting control system, regardless of where you are installing it, consumers will find unique benefits that cater to their distinct tastes and preferences. In today's blog, we'll be taking a closer at why lighting control is beneficial for both your home or business space. To learn more information, keep reading below, or if you're interested in a lighting control system in the Boston or Boca Raton areas, call SDI at (617) 391-8919

Lighting Control Equals Energy-Efficiency

If you have either installed or are looking to install a lighting control system for your home or business, it is already one step closer to becoming a more advanced and efficient version of itself. More specifically, lighting control has been proven to improve the energy-efficiency of any location in which it is installed. This is due to the fact that lighting control systems allow you to optimize your lighting, preventing overuse and excessive energy consumption. Many systems offer energy-saving capabilities, like setting your lights to a timer so that they turn off automatically after specific periods of time. Many systems may also allow you to control your lighting while you're away from home. Lighting control does its part to make your home more advanced and efficient, which is beneficial for any homeowner or business property owner.

Comfort for All

One of the most popular benefits of lighting control is that - to put it simply - it can make your space look more elegant, and this goes for both residential and commercial locations. As opposed to standard lighting, lighting control helps to create warm, attractive, and comfortable environments, for homeowners, guests, visitors, and everybody else who comes through your doors! Both at home and in the workplace, making everyone feel comfortable can go a long way in improving overall happiness, productivity, and others.

SDI specializes in the installation of lighting control, motorized shades, home theaters, wifi systems, and more! Our team is here to upgrade your home or business with top-of-the-line products from only the most trusted manufacturers.

Lutron vs. Control4: Comparing Two Leading Lighting Control Brands

In the world of lighting control, it's no secret that the products that you use can make or break the success of your lighting system. As a consumer, you'll want a lighting control system that meets your goals and brings the least amount of issues with it. If you're considering installing a lighting control system for yourbusiness space or home, it's important to first learn about who you're getting your products from, to ensure a fail-proof lighting control system that you'll admire for years to come. In today's blog, we'll be comparing two popular brands in the industry, Lutron and Control4, and putting them head-to-head to help you make an informed decision!

Interface

The user interface of your lighting control system might just be its most important attribute. After all, you'll almost certainly want a system that caters to your specific needs and preferences. Both offer interfaces that are relatively easy to use, each having their own mobile apps that allow you to control the lights in your home with ease. However, if you favor a simple interface, consumers have distinguished Lutron systems for their approachability.

Customer Service

The user experience is a major factor in determining the success of not only a product, but even an entire brand. Fortunately, both Lutron and Control4 are known to provide excellent experiences to their customers, and there is no distinct winner here. In fact, we can say that both brands are committed to serving their customers with consistent and reliable products and services.

Installation Process

If you are looking for a brand with products that are relatively easy to install, then you might want to go with Lutron, as many consumers have had positive things to say about the installation process with Lutron products. This is not to say that Control4's products are particularly hard to install, but if you are interested in an advance system, then you may have to enlist the help of a professional installation team.

Customization & Personalization

Once again, it's hard to discern who is the clear winner among the two brands, as they both offer products that are highly customizable. Both Lutron and Control4 allow you to start with a basic lighting control system and provide you with the opportunity to expand and manipulate it to your preferences. Whether for commercial or residential purposes, you can find plenty of features among Lutron and Control4's products that suit your needs.

Lighting Control 101

20220127-173601unnamed-1

Picture this - after a long day, you relaxing on the couch, but you forgot one thing - turning on or off the lights!

Lighting control and automation is an ideal way to control all of the lights in your home with ease and convenience. In today's blog, we'll be diving into the basic ins-and-outs of lighting control, and how it can take your home to the next level! If that sounds interesting, keep reading below for more!

Introduction to Lighting Control

Lighting control is a generic term for a system of interconnected lights, typically governed by a singular device or platform. Unlike standard home lighting systems, where lights are independendent and unresponsive to each other, lighting control allows for lights to communicate with other lights. Many lighting control systems can be controlled with the likes of smartphones, mounted tablets, or other devices.


So Why Lighting Control?

In a sentence, lighting control adds instant class, functionality, and elegance to any home - and we mean any home - whether small, medium, or large. Depending on your system, lighting control can be very personalized as well. To provide an example of this, you can adjust any light in your home to be exactly tailored to your liking. In addition to this, it's a known fact that lighting control can simply make your living space look better. Few things beat the sensation of simply pressing a button and seeing the illumination take place before your eyes. Last, but not least, lighting control makes things easier when it comes to lighting your home. With the use of a device, you won't have to get up anymore to turn the lights on or off. This can give you peace of mind, and save you from overspending on energy bills - something no homeowner wants to be dealing with.

Why not get one step closer to making a lighting contrl system a reality? SDI has delivered excellent results in home automation, home theaters, home audio systems, and more to homeowners in the greater Boston area.

Determine Your Goals

As mentioned, there can be a number of conceivable goals that you want to meet with your lighting control system.

This can be especially helpful depending on if you have a residential or commercial space that you are looking to equip with a lighting control system, which leads us to our next thing to consider.

Consider How it Applies to Your Space

While this may go hand-in-hand with our previous point, it's important to factor in how a lighting control system would apply to your specific space. For example, if you are looking to service your home, you might want to look into the various lighting control systems that have security capabilities. Additionally, you might want to consider systems that can integrate other technologies in your home into one cohesive and easy-to-use unit.

Consider the Right Lighting Products

How Can I Get the Most Out of My Lighting Control?

Image-29-of-36-3

There's nothing quite like the convenience and functionality that a lighting system can provide. Whether you're using one for your residential or commercial space, there are many opportunities to take advantage of when it comes to lighting control systems. In today's blog, we'll be taking a closer look at how you can get the most out of your lighting control system. If you're interested in learning more, keep reading below, or if you'd like to install a lighting control system for your Boston or Boca Raton home or business space, call our team at SDI! Call (617) 391-8919 for our Boston location or (786) 668-5009 for our Boca Raton location. We look forward to hearing from you!

Start With The Basics & Make a Plan

In a number of ways, installing a lighting control system is not unlike other home improvement projects in that it requires a concise plan. Before you even get in touch with an installation team, it's important to set specific and precise goals for what you want to accomplish with your lighting control system. This will help you achieve lighting control that is well-tailored and personalized to your unique preferences and needs.

Take Advantage of Motion Sensors

As lighting control systems have developed over time, they have also improved in many ways. This is exemplified by motion sensors, which are now a common feature of lighting control systems. These lights simply activate once they detect movement, which is not only a convenient feature, but an energy-saving one as well. What homeowner or business property owner would say no to such benefits? If this appeals to you, you may want to consider installing a lighting control system with motion-detection capabilities.

Try Systems With Scheduled Lighting Capabilities

A commonly-shared concern among both homeowners and business owners is energy-efficiency, or perhaps the lack thereof. As it turns out, a well-optimized lighting control system can put these concerns to rest, particularly with their scheduling capabilites. Many modern lighting control systems allow you to schedule the times at which it illuminates. Much like the aforementioned motion-sensors, scheduled lighting is incredbily convenient and energy-efficient as well.
