Technology Pros Help Bring Homes to Life with Lighting Systems

Choosing modern systems that empower visions

Think back to the last time you turned on a light. The experience was likely pretty forgettable. Flip the switch; on comes the light. We do this many times each day and each time is the same. Boring.

If you have ever entered a high-end kitchen and found a bank of light switches wider than a Los Angeles freeway, you also know how difficult it can be to turn on the correct light when needed. Properly layered light often requires a multitude of switches. And if all of the lights in a room like this are turned fully on at once, the space can be over-lit by a cacophony of photons blazing across the room in all directions.

When homeowners have to hit multiple switches to properly light a space, they quickly learn to live without using their lights as intended. They turn on only those lights that will enable them to complete a task, then they move on, missing out on seeing their beautiful space in its illuminated glory!

Light is the most important design element in a home. Nothing else affects the overall look and feel of a space in the same way. High-end textiles or innovative architectural elements are rendered flat or uninteresting under poor light. On the other hand, quality LED fixtures that render light well—and coordinated dimming presets—can transform even average spaces into luxurious retreats.

While lighting control systems which address some of these issues have existed for a while, new advancements in LED lighting have opened the door for a whole new world of options. The range of products on the market that offer some level of lighting control or even color changing features is enormous, but not all of these products actually produce quality results—and even fewer are easy to use.

It is more critical than ever for architects, builders and interior designers to choose modern systems that will empower them to bring their visions to life without overwhelming homeowners with complexity. The key is working with home technology professionals who can help select the right solutions for the job and then carefully adapt the capabilities of the technology to the needs of the individual homeowner.

With custom-installed lighting systems and intelligent fixtures and lamps, specifiers and homeowners can let their imaginations run free to create lighting scenes that go beyond simple dimming presets. Artwork can be perfectly lit as its creator intended thanks to custom vibrancy control. Designers who crave candlelight-warm light can hone in on the perfect color temperature for lighting a cozy den or bedroom. Landscapes and home exteriors can bathe in colorful light that adds drama and impact to already impressive curb appeal.

Homebuilders have powerful resources at their disposal when they turn to home technology professionals with expertise in modern lighting controls and fixtures. We can help ensure homeowners experience their spaces in the way that was intended: with every design element, architectural detail and example of top-notch craftsmanship on full display.
