4 Ways to Use Home Lighting Control to Make Your Life Easier

Set the perfect lighting for any occasion with minimal effort

4 Ways to Use Home Lighting Control to Make Your Life Easier

As far as smart systems go, lighting control is one of the most useful solutions to have in your Southlake, TX, home. Home lighting control allows you to view and control all your lighting fixtures at once from a single mobile app or program lights to turn on/off automatically based on the time of day, room occupancy, or the sun’s position. 

Once you have smart lighting, you’ll never want to return to the days of endlessly flipping switches. Keep reading to learn four ways lighting control makes your daily life easier!

Scenes help you create the right lighting environment for every occasion, whether you’re hosting a dinner party for friends or spending a quiet evening alone on the couch. If your home lighting currently consists of a combination of basic switches, manual dimmers, and lamps, you likely waste a lot of time fiddling with settings to get the effect you want.

But with an advanced lighting control system from Savant or Lutron, you can build personalized scenes on your mobile phone or tablet and initiate them with the touch of a button. Scenes allow you to select specific fixtures, brightness levels, and colors, group them under a single command, and save the specific settings for future use. Then, the next time you want to prepare your spaces for a “Dinner Party” or “Movie Night,” all you have to do is press a button on your smartphone, and your lights will set themselves. 


We’ve all been guilty of wandering from room to room, forgetting to switch off lights in our wake. Not only is it annoying to come home and find out that the kitchen light was on all day, but it’s an energy-wasting habit. But motion-activated sensors can help you use your lights more efficiently at home without any effort on your part.

Occupancy and vacancy sensors will activate a room’s lights when you enter, then turn them off when you leave. They can be a real lifesaver when you’re rushing to get out the door in the morning or have your hands full walking around the house.


Daylighting is another way to control lighting using sensor technology. Light sensors detect ambient light in a room and automatically adjust the electric lights in response. For example, on sunny Texas afternoons, your system will dim the living room lights while sun pours in through the window. Then, as the sun starts to set, your lights will brighten accordingly.

Daylighting is energy-efficient, convenient, and an amazing way to bring more natural light into your home.

Remote Access

One of the biggest perks of smart lighting control is the ability to monitor and adjust your home lighting from wherever you are. A lighting control system from Savant or Lutron comes with a dedicated app that you can access on your mobile phone or tablet. At a glance, you can view the status of lights in a single room or the whole house, turn on/off specific light fixtures, and activate scenes to prepare your home for your arrival.
