The Advantages of a Home Lighting Control System

Lighting Scenes show your home off at its best!

With lighting solutions from Creative LAVA, lighting levels can be preset and instantly recalled at the push of a button – you can even have different lighting levels for different activities. This allows you to light your home perfectly, adding warmth, ambience and highlighting features.

They add convenience

Large houses can waste huge amounts of energy simply by leaving lights on when they aren’t required. Fully Integrated lighting systems allow you to easily see where lights are on and allow you to control them from a central location. Integration with security alarms can switch all the lights in the home off when the alarm is set or start to replay your usual activity so it looks like you are home.

They Save Energy

Having digital dimmers save energy when they dim. Dimming lights by 10% can result in huge savings across a large property without being noticeable to clients. Incorporating dimmed lights into lighting scenes (mentioned above) can save huge amounts of energy whilst a bulb dimmed to its lowest level can add real warmth feeling to a room. Ensuring lights aren’t on and automating light switching can also save huge amounts of energy.

They Increase Lamp Life

Lighting control systems have a slow ramp up to full lamp brightness, vastly increasing the life of your lamps. This might not sound very impressive given the low cost of a lamp but our lighting systems regularly control huge chandeliers in double height spaces – replacing lamps involves scaffolding towers, disruption and high labour costs!

You can easily set up scenes

Full integration of a lighting system onto an iPad or controller allows the client to stand in the room and dim lighting channels up and down until the perfect scene is created. These light levels can then be saved down and recalled by pressing a scene button on a wall mounted keypad or the iPad.

We take lighting for granted because it’s so ubiquitous. Most rooms have overhead lights as well as task lighting in specific areas. Almost all houses have exterior lights, some of which are activated by motion controls or light sensors. Just about every room in your house is likely to have multiple lighting options, with several options for dimming. So what’s the best way to manage it all?
