Automated lighting scenes have become a popular trend in smart home technology. They allow you to easily control the ambiance of your home, by setting different lighting scenarios with just a single tap on your phone or voice command. In this post, we’ll explore what automated lighting scenes are, and why they’re a great addition to your home.

What are Automated Lighting Scenes?

Automated lighting scenes are pre-configured lighting setups that can be activated with just a single command. For example, you can create a “Movie Night” scene that dims your lights, turns off your overhead lights and switches on the lamps in your living room. This can be done through a smart home app or by voice control with a virtual assistant like Amazon Alexa or Google Home.

Benefits of Automated Lighting Scenes

Convenience: The biggest benefit of automated lighting scenes is convenience. No longer do you have to walk around the room adjusting each light individually. With just a single tap or voice command, you can set the perfect lighting for any occasion.

Energy efficiency: Automated lighting scenes can also help you save energy. For example, you can set a “Bedtime” scene that turns off all lights in the house except for the ones in your bedroom, helping you reduce energy consumption and save on your electricity bill.

Improved Home Security: Automated lighting scenes can also improve the security of your home. You can set a “Vacation” scene that turns lights on and off in your home at different times, making it look like someone is home even when you’re away.

Enhanced Mood: Automated lighting scenes can also enhance the mood of your home. For example, you can set a “Relaxation” scene that dims your lights and switches on your table lamps, creating a cozy and calming atmosphere.

How to Set up Automated Lighting Scenes

Setting up automated lighting scenes is easy and can be done in just a few simple steps. Here’s how:

Invest in a smart home lighting system: To set up automated lighting scenes, you’ll need a smart home lighting system. Look for a system that’s compatible with your other smart home devices, such as Amazon Alexa or Google Home.

Install the lighting system: Follow the manufacturer’s instructions to install the lighting system in your home. This typically involves replacing your existing light switches with smart switches, and connecting the system to your home’s Wi-Fi network. This work must be done by a licensed electrician.

Set up the app: Once your lighting system is installed, download the corresponding app onto your phone. This app will be your control center for your automated lighting scenes.

Create your scenes: Use the app to create your automated lighting scenes. You can set different scenes for different occasions, such as “Movie Night,” “Bedtime,” and “Vacation.”

Or sit back and let a suitably qualified and licensed electrician do the design, installation and setup for you.

In conclusion, automated lighting scenes are a great addition to any smart home. They offer convenience, energy efficiency, improved home security, and an enhanced mood. With just a few simple steps, you can set up automated lighting scenes in your home and enjoy the many benefits they offer.
