Complete Control Over Your Lights Offers Unparalleled Peace of Mind
You can do many things to feel safer in your Sherwood Park home, including adding a security system, motorized blinds, and lighting control. If you've been searching for ways to boost your home security, home automation can help.
National Audio Video has the solutions to utilize lighting as a component of your home’s safety systems. Keep reading to discover three ways that automating your lights will make you feel safer at home!
Make Your Home Safer
Feeling safe in your home is essential but not always guaranteed. Even if you live in a safe neighborhood or gated community, events can take place that may put you on edge. Certain aspects of home automation can place your mind at ease, and adding lighting control to your interior and exterior spaces can do just that!
Deter Crimes with Lighting
Homeowners can create the illusion of someone being at home, even when they’re not there. Using pre-programmed smart lighting scenes, you can set your lights to turn on or off at seemingly sporadic times whenever you’re gone, making it look like someone is at home going about their daily routines.
While we doubt your neighborhood is overrun with crime, lights can deter burglars who may be scouting out homes to target for break-ins. An automated schedule will ensure lights turn on automatically at dusk, off at sunrise, and intermittently during the day throughout your home to give the appearance of occupancy whether you're out to dinner downtown or on vacation!
You can also brighten dark areas around your property, such as your driveway, entry points, and backyard. Installing motion-activated lights ensures these areas are well-lit when you or anyone else (or thing) crosses paths with a fixture, making it harder for someone to approach undetected. Also, outdoor home lighting eliminates unseen tripping hazards in the yard, so you and your guests can safely navigate the property once the sun sets on the horizon.
Feel Safer with Lighting
Lighting control creates a safer environment within your home, too. By using dimmer switches, room occupancy sensors, motion sensors, and LED smart bulbs, your living spaces become easier to navigate. This is especially beneficial if you have young children or elderly family members who may need more or less illumination to feel comfortable and safe.
Intuitive lighting management allows you to avoid situations where you must navigate a dark home, reducing the risk of accidents and injuries. Whether you program your lights to operate on a schedule or use voice control to turn them on and off, automation and control build a safer living environment overall.
