Welcome Home

Coming home to a dark house at night can be daunting, but coming home to a lighted path, illuminated exterior house lights, and a bright entryway can make you feel right at home. With lighting control, you can customize a scene and schedule it for your arrival time or turn them on as you pull into the driveway.

Moreover, if you expect visitors in the evening, lighting controls can assist with setting the perfect welcoming atmosphere, ensuring that your guests can safely see and access your door.

Set a Timer

A lightning control system can turn lights on and off even when you are away from home. For example, to deter criminal activity while you’re traveling, it’s a standard security practice for homeowners to schedule lights to turn on and off throughout the day and night.

You can use timers in other ways, such as scheduling timers to alert children of bedtime or scheduling night lights for safe access around your home when it’s dark.

Access Lights Remotely

With a lighter control system, homeowners can manage lights remotely using a tablet or smartphone app. Remote access is a nice feature if you have guests coming to your home and you like them to feel welcome with lights or if you want to ensure all of the lights in your home get turned off when you leave.


By pairing lighting controls with your security system, you can capture higher-quality video with a nearby light. Motion-activated lights are the perfect option when you want clear surveillance footage. Motion-activated lights are a good choice for driveways, garages, or storage sheds. Your lighting control system can send an alert should one of your motion lights be activated.
