How Home Lighting Control Saves You Time and Energy
Simple Solutions That Only Require a Light Touch
Daylight savings means we lose an hour in the morning, but it also means the sun is still shining well into the evening. There’s no better time to start getting the family out of the house for picnics, catch a baseball game and other great outdoor fun around Aspen. But it’s also a time to consider monitoring your energy consumption. After a long winter, it will be a relief to your family when you have the opportunity to reduce energy usage in every corner of your space. The simplest way to lower consumption and costs is a home lighting control system that offers one-touch and hands-free options for intelligent illumination. Read on to learn more.
What’s crucial when it comes to your smart lighting system? Is it saving energy? Or making your home look more beautiful? Savings and style are certainly on the list, but they must be controlled as simply, intuitively and easily as possible. That’s why we’ve developed the E-Touch interface.
Our patent pending control system doesn’t just offer the amazing benefits of Crestron control. It gives you a unique visual guide to your entire home’s smart automation based on your actual floor plan. Raising the lights in one room is as simple as tapping a button on your smartphone or tablet. You can monitor energy usage and other statistics in real-time while using an interface that’s so simple children and grandparents alike will have no trouble navigating it.
And E-Touch isn’t just for your lighting control – it can streamline your entire smart system, from distributed audio video to integrated surveillance. There’s no better way to take command of your connected home.
Of course, smart lighting can do more than just provide easy-to-use controls. It can reduce the need to even think about your lights. Here’s how:
Timers are one of the most effective ways of preventing wasted energy. Simply program the optimal time for your lights to turn on and turn off. That way, you won’t have to check your E-Touch interface to feel confident of wisely using your lights.
Occupancy sensors also offer an excellent solution for simplifying your light use. Mainly, occupancy sensors act as motion sensors, but advanced models can be programmed to ignore the presence of animals and keep tabs on how you realistically use the light in the room.
And keeping a record is important for the third option: letting your system learn for itself. Smart technology integrates your electronics, but it can also learn your habits and react accordingly. If you come home from the office at 5:00 p.m. on most days, but begin arriving home at 3:30 p.m. on Thursdays, there’s no need to re-program all of your settings. After a few days your lights will learn what you’re doing and adjust for maximum comfort.
