LET THERE BE LIGHTING
Lighting is no longer just a utility for your home. It’s an aesthetic that creates an ideal movie-viewing experience for your family, provides an ambience that is lively for entertaining guests, adds cheer to your holiday season and even sets the perfect mood for a date night.
It’s not a switch. It’s not a bulb. It’s about setting the perfect scene, every time.
ONE-BUTTON CONTROL OF EVERYTHING
Keypads from brands like Control4, Lutron and Dynalite feature customisable buttons that allow you to control more than just the lights – including music, movies, locks, thermostats, even your garage door with a simple press.
Turn on or off multiple rooms, or your entire house, with one tap as you’re headed off to work or turning in for the night.
There’s no longer a need to travel from room-to-room switching off individual lights and televisions.
With no touch at all, your home knows when you’re arriving in the evening and sets your lights to lead the way. You’ll never come home to a dark house again. Motion sensors also provide hands-free illumination to the bathroom or the kitchen in the middle of the night and set the lighting at a low percentage so as to not “wake” you from your state of sleep.
And by using just your voice, you can light the way when your arms are full or tell your house to turn off every fixture from the comfort of your bed.
OPTIONS FOR EVERY HOME
With multiple configurations and finishes for any budget, there are many opportunities to create a smart lighting sanctuary across the entire house or in just a few select spaces. Whether you’re wanting to go big right now or start small and add more later, smart lighting is tailored to fit your needs and provide options for any home, from homes built a century ago to those currently under design or construction.
FITS AND FINISHES FOR EVERY HOME
Configurable Keypads replace traditional light switches to provide stunning interfaces that combine flexible button configurations with beautiful colours and finishes that complement the decor of your home.
The colour of the LEDs on Control4 keypads are also customisable and provide instant visual feedback about what lights are currently on, whether your front door is locked, or even if the garage has been left open.
Centralised lighting systems are perfect for homes that are in the new-build stage or for homes undergoing a complete back to shell renovation. In a centralised project, lighting wires are run to a centralised location such as a utility closet or a wall in the garage eliminating the need for banks of switches (“wall acne”) or locally installed lighting control devices. Elegant and stylish keypads and touch screens replace control of individual or sets of light fixtures with simple scene control. All of the dimmer and relay modules are housed in this centralised location and controlled via the keypads which most commonly operate on a low voltage bus network.
In areas where you would prefer not to cut open walls for cable running, wireless dimmers, switches, and keypads make for an ideal control interface. Wireless lighting is often favourable for renovation projects and can be more cost-effective than retrofitting a wired system. Wireless solutions are available from Control, Lutron and Kasta.
In homes where KNX is a standard you can now start a music playlist with a KNX keypad, adjust the HVAC system from anywhere on a mobile device, dim or ramp your lights with a handheld remote, and use your voice to turn off the entire house at night and select from a wide range of KNX compatible keypads from premium brands such as Basalte, Lithoss and Gira.
