06 Nov Programmable Lighting Control Systems for Your Home
Explore the beauty of your home with programmable lighting control systems.
A wonderful feature in a modern luxury home is a programmable lighting control system. This system can be programmed to dim the lights, lower the shades, and turn on the television. Additionally it can be programmed to light a path from your bedroom to the kitchen for that midnight cookie craving!
A simple press of a button on any keypad and you have magical and practical Home lighting automation. This ingenious technology system allows the homeowner to turn all the lights on and off in the house and enables the homeowner to setup lighting scenes. For example , one dimmer turns on a preset light level while a second and/or third turns the light on at a different preset light level. You no longer need multiple dimmers to get the lighting effect you desire.
A popular alternative to a full scale programmable lighting control system is specialized switches. An In-wall timer is an example.
In-wall timers can turn a standard wall light switch into a programmable timer complete with 7-day customization, random vacation settings, and a backup battery.
I personally like to use the timer to control the porch light over the kitchen door. It alleviates coming home to a dark house at night and we no longer leave the light on all night by mistake.
Features of In-Wall Programmable Timers
In-wall timers can automate lights, fans, pumps, or anything else that can be controlled by a regular light switch.
Programming the timer to turn on only when needed will save energy without having to think or worry about it.
Using the 7-day program cycle allows you to set the timer according to your schedule. They may also have a “random” setting to provide irregular security lighting when you’re away on vacation.
If you need more light you can override the settings with the touch of a finger, and it’ll return to the program in the next cycle.
The integrated NiCd rechargeable battery prevents your settings from being erased during a power outage.
In-wall timers fit inside a regular wall switch box. They come with a cover plate but will also accept standard square cover plates.
