How Does Home Lighting Control Keep You Safe?
Smart Security Starts With Simple Lighting Options
One of the fundamental aspects of adding technology to your property is home lighting control. And one of the main reasons to upgrade your spaces with smart automation is to increase the safety of your home. It goes without saying that if you want a safer property in Denver, Colorado, you’ll want your lighting to help you out. Thankfully, there are some solutions available to you for protecting your family with smart lighting. In this blog, we’ll show you the various ways you can integrate your lights to help secure your spaces.
If you’ve been following our blog, you know that occupancy sensors can help you reduce energy use throughout your home. Similarly, motion sensors integrated with your outdoor lighting can help protect your spaces. When they detect movement at night, the lights can trigger to flood the area with illumination via infrared sensors. You can even program them to recognize objects above a certain height, so you’re not bothered by brightness every time your dog wanders too close to the front door.
Smart Lock Integration
A cornerstone of home security in the custom electronics era is the smart lock. Whether you choose keycard access or biometric entryways, integrated door locks are an intelligent way to keep your home safe. But more than just a way to lock up at night, integrated entry systems can speak to your lighting to keep you safe throughout the day and night. The first way is through a “Mockupancy” setting. When you step away from the house, your locks engage and tell the system to act as if you are home. That means the lighting and shading functions as if there were someone in the house, using them as they normally would. The lights alternate between rooms at realistic intervals based on actual usage records, so your home always looks occupied. The second way that smart locks integrate with your lighting is when there is environmental danger. Say your smoke detector goes off in the middle of the night. Not only does it speak to your smart lock for easy escape, but it also speaks to your lighting. An intelligently designed lighting system will illuminate a pathway out of the house, making it simpler to get away quickly. Home lighting control is essential for protecting your Denver property.
