Use a Lighting Control System to Create the Right Scene at Your Home
Everybody uses their home in different ways: some see their home strictly as a place to relax — with no work brought in. This may mean keeping the home very private as a personal retreat away from work life, or it could mean using the home as a place for entertaining and having guests over. Others work from a home office, and some simply want space for personal hobbies or creative work.
Whatever your ideal activities may be, there are many ways a lighting control system can be used to customize your home’s look and feel in order to create the environment you want. Utilizing this technology to its full potential can transform your Menlo Park, CA home into the space you’ve always dreamed of.
In this blog, we will discuss the different ways a property can look when lighting control is used properly.
A Place for Productivity
Use color temperature and custom control to create the ideal work space. Cooler-toned lighting is known to improve focus and energy; with lighting control, you can adjust the color temperature to that cool tone when you’re ready to get into work-mode. Adjust it from the same app that you control the rest of the home’s lighting, so you can dedicate just your home office to be bright and work-ready while the rest of the home is dimmed to promote relaxation.
The control aspect makes this a breeze and prevents you from having to take a lot of time setting the scene. It’s as simple as going into your control system’s app on your phone or tablet and selecting your preset lighting settings. Simply tap the scene you want and dive into your work.
A Place to Entertain
If you’re hosting a party or having guests over, set the scene with your lighting control system. In fact, you can customize each room to look a bit differently if you want to create different scenes throughout the home. For example, dim one room where guests can relax in low light with their drinks, while other spaces like the kitchen can be a bit brighter so that everyone can find food and drinks with ease.
A control system allows you to adjust each room from a single source so that you’re not wasting time and energy walking throughout your home to manually adjust each individual space.
A Restful Retreat
As mentioned earlier, color temperature can create a specific look to a room. Warmer temperatures promote relaxation. If you set your bedroom to dim the lights with a warmer tone, your mind can prepare for rest.
Moreover, set your entire home to dim and be at a warmer temperature as soon as you get home if you like. With the tap of a button, your house can be ready when you walk through the door so that you immediately enter relaxation mode.
