4 Great Ways You Can Use Lighting Scenes in Your Home
Incorporate Personal Settings for Greater Comfort and Convenience
Simplicity and flexibility are some hallmarks of a lighting control system. You get to manage lights in a variety of ways beyond the traditional on/off switch used in most homes. You can even branch out with mobile apps, elegant keypads, dedicated touchpads, and even voice control to optimize your experience. Not only that, but you can easily save and pull up your favorite settings in the form of lighting scenes, which we’ll focus on today.
The lighting scenes we’ll discuss in this blog are the ones that we think will most streamline your daily routines. Get multiple light fixtures, within a room or the entire house, to turn on to your desired hue or intensity at the press of a button or a simple voice command. Below are just some of the ways you can use these to your advantage in your Wayne, PA home.
Once you’re ready to wind down after a long day at work, it’s easy to create the ideal calming atmosphere. Incorporate a scene that turns on lights at a dimmed, warm hue which encourages relaxation. Activate this scene on your drive home using the mobile app that comes with your Lutron lighting control system. That way, you get the ultimate comforting greeting when you arrive.
Don’t worry about leaving lights on or shades open at the end of the night. Get peace of mind with a “Good Night” scene that automatically turns off all lights and closes all shades when you go to bed. You can turn on this scene using a handheld remote on your bedside table, via voice commands, or schedule it to occur at the same time each day.
Liven up your space when hosting friends and family with a dedicated entertaining scene. Go with cool, bright lighting that will encourage activity throughout the day or evening. Use fixtures and lighting hues strategically to show off your favorite artwork or architectural features. We recommend turning on this scene with your mobile app and using it throughout the night to adjust lighting as guests move around.
On your way out of the house, press the “Away” button by your front door or garage door. This scene is similar to your "Good Night" scene in that it will turn off all lights and close the shades. Only this time, lights will turn back on at given times throughout the day. Unoccupied homes are a frequent target for intruders, so the goal is to make it seem like someone is there while you're at work or on vacation.
