There's so much more to a home's lighting than just providing enough light to move around in. In this day and age, lighting is an art, and Control4 seems to have lighting down to a fine art. Gone are the days where homeowners had to settle and be happy with standard overhead lighting. Nowadays, lighting can be a focal point, and it can also bring other focal areas to life. The trick behind incorporating the type of lighting that makes each room or focus area pop is to put some thought into it. Thoughtful lighting can be seen and felt, which is what the Control4 range is really all about.
With Control4 lighting, you can create a soft and romantic ambiance, a dramatic scene, or simply brightly lit-up areas for doing evening homework. What's more is that you can control it all with a few clicks of a button, if you wish to automate your home. Smart lighting makes the average home come alive, and it's all done with a user-friendly program with multiple settings. This means that you can change the lighting to various different settings, depending on your mood and preferences.
The three main types of lighting include:
- Ambient lighting
- Task lighting
- Accent lighting
All of these are pretty fairly self-explanatory. LED strip lighting has also become a popular lighting feature in the modern home, as the lighting is able to bring out the home's best features, and is also very economical in terms of energy consumption. It's also a great interior design element, as these strips can be tinted to shine different shades and colours in each room of the home.
With Control4 lighting, you can also incorporate automated dimmers, so that the lights turn themselves down as required, or to suit your lifestyle. If you're out and coming home late, there's no need for ultra-bright lighting to greet you at the door. You can set your system to turn on the patio light, dim the lounge lights, and have your bedroom lights on when you arrive. It's the smart way to live, and it's made possible with Control4.
