Lighting control is one of the most sought-after smart home features. We’ve written at length on these pages about the virtues of smart lighting, from energy efficiency to aesthetics and wellness. And while lighting control can be applied to one area of your house or the entire Cumming, GA property, we are a big advocate for whole-home lighting control systems.
Why? The reason is straightforward: The benefits in convenience, luxury, safety, and energy efficiency multiply when you can manage your entire home’s lighting intelligently. And while you might think that it sounds more complicated to do your entire house, you might be surprised to learn that lighting control systems – like those from Lutron – are adaptable for retrofit installation as well as for new construction and major remodels.

Ditch the Lowly Light Switch for Beautiful, Smart Lighting
Most larger homes have a significant amount of built-in lighting. There are recessed downlights, niche lights, under-counter lighting, accent lights, switched plugs for lamps, and much more. All those lights add up to lots of switches. In the design trade, too many wall switches are sometimes called "wall acne."
Needless to say, no one likes acne. But there is a way to ditch those switches and replace them with lighting controls that not only meld with your décor but also become a stylish part of it. Replacing your switches with an intelligent whole-home lighting control system and smart keypads will make it so much easier to manage your Duluth, GA home’s illumination.

It’s Wise to Go Whole Home with Lighting Control
Smart lighting control is one of the first things homeowners look for with home automation. The reasons make sense – lighting control is convenient and can save energy effortlessly. However, some might think that lighting control might be good for just one area – like a central living area or outside lighting.
Just as in smart home automation, we think when you make all your lighting smart, the benefits of the whole are greater than the sum of the parts. Let’s take a closer look at a few things you might not have realized about whole-home lighting control systems. Please keep reading below!
Smart Lighting Is More than Mere Convenience
Some people may think that smart home technology is just about convenience. Without question, convenience is a real benefit, but it's not the only one. Smart lighting is not just about giving you an app to dim and control your lights from wherever. It's about letting you have complete control over lighting to make your home more beautiful, energy-efficient, luxurious, and even healthier.
You might also think that intelligent lighting is a great feature to have for just one area in your home. Perhaps you want smart control for your main living area or your outside lights. But we say, why not go all the way? With a whole-home lighting control system, you can open up another world of possibilities for your Woodstock, GA home. Let's look at four ways you can leverage the power of intelligent lighting control.
