Controlled lighting allows you to adapt the ambiance of your home for any situation. An integrated system, along with motorized shades and draperies, provides you with personalized options that go beyond simply turning on / off various lights in your home. You can program your home environment for custom scenarios such as “reading,” “cocktail party,” or “movie viewing” with the press of a button. Lighting also creates a more secure home; when you leave for vacation, the lights and shades can be programmed to create a pattern of activity that suggests someone is still home. The same wiring that commands the lights can also command lawn irrigation, pool temperature, hot tubs, garage door openers, and your complete home entertainment system.
