5 Bright Ways to use Lighting Control

January 9, 2020 Lighting & Shade Control

When you become the owner of a lighting control system, you gain total control of the lights in your home. You can now choose specific lighting senses and control the intensity of each light circuit through either the push of a button, app on your phone, or even via voice control using Alexa or Google Home. Here are a few ways to control your lighting system.

Safe and Sound

A lighting control system can actually increase your personal security and that of your property. This is accomplished by programming different scene settings that both light up you home and make it look occupied. For example, one such scene could include as you arrive in your driveway, the system lights up your house's exterior through a driveway sensor or with the touch of a button to expose anything hiding in dark. Another example would be that while you are away from your home, you program sets of lights to turn on and off at scheduled times during the day. This is called "Mockupancy" and works because homes that appear inhabited are less likely to be a target for burglary.

Rise with the Sun

It can be difficult to get out of a warm bed in the morning. It’s tempting to hit the snooze button for a few more minutes and waking the kids is yet another struggle. But now you can program the bedroom lights to turn on at a scheduled time with your new lighting control system. Soon your family will rise and shine on their own; you'll never have to fumble around in the dark again. You can even schedule the lights to shut off to enforce a stricter bedtime.

Set the Mood

Whether you’re hosting an event or unwinding after a long day, the right lighting can help make a difference in the atmosphere. Enchant your garden with colorful lights, or turn your bedroom into a sanctuary with dimmed lights. Brighten the lights to encourage a productive clean-up in the kitchen, while your dinner guests enjoy wine in low lights. With the touch of a button, you are the master of your home’s lighting.

Mobile Control

Our lighting control systems can be managed through smart devices like your tablet or smartphone, which means you are permanently in charge of your home. If you can’t remember turning off the kitchen lights, just check your phone and flip the switch, even when you’re away from home. Through your mobile device, you can adjust programmed settings and select different lights’ intensity throughout your house.

  • Jim and his crew saved my entire implementation of my home audio/video/lighting paired with Savant's home automation platform. I had been through 2 integrators previously. My first integrator failed to address many of the issues on the setup they installed themselves. My 2nd integrator was decent, but never responded to my follow up inquiries. I contacted Savant Systems and asked for the best integrator in the area and they recommended INI. Jim has always been responsive and efficient by making sure all issues are addressed. Jim and his crew (I met Luke and Pablo) were able to address all of my issues and get my setup rock solid. I haven't had one single issue since. My biggest regret is not finding them from the beginning of my build out. I would have likely saved money and time if I used them from the beginning. I won't hesitate to reach out to INI for future needs or the next home system I build out.

  • I had them automate my house and the professionalism and attention to detail was prefect. To sum it up, it just works.

    It was a three man team to automate my house with lutron lights, audio,  and video control using a Savant system. They ran wire, redid my network, and showed my how to use the new simple technology. 

    It's pretty cool to go from just hanging out to full entertainment inside and outside of the house for a game while playing music with two touches on my phone. The team was fast, efficient, and knowledgeable. You can tell they've been working together for awhile. 

    I would highly recommend!

  • My wife and I have been an INI client for many years. The expertise and value they have brought has been remarkable. They assisted us with a failed system, upgraded us to a new system years later and have been there for all unexpected issues (i.e. power outage resets, user error, etc.). They are responsive and have always been available when needed - in my opinion this is rare. Kudos and to Jim, Luke and the INI team!!! John & Lori

  • I have used the INI team for a few jobs because they are professional, thorough and I trust them. Jim and his team are technically savvy and remain available and responsive when I call back with questions. They also care about their community and have supported numerous Veteran / Wounded Warrior events. I will use INI again.

  • When our home was built, INI did all my audio/video installation. Any issue I had, they were right there with positive assistance. Jim and Eric are the best. They are knowledgeable and courteous. I trust them without any hesitation.

  • We have worked with Jim and Luke and the folks at INI for over 10 years. They have always been exteamly helpful listening to what we wanted to accomplish with our TV and sound system helping us to realize our a fantastic finished product. Not being Tech savy we were more than intimidated by the incredible advancements in TV, programming and sound systems. Jim or Luke were always there to answer our questions and to walk us through a glitches we may have caused. Their incredible patience led us into the new world of modern TV viewing. I would highly recommend this company to anyone who is looking for the latest and greatest in home entertainment. They are just the BEST.

  • INI did an awesome job hooking up my condo. From tv's, sonos sound system to a new network.  

    Staff was friendly, punctual, flexible around my work schedule. Took extra time to walk me through how to use the system.  Very professional and clean.
