Lighting for Security: Where to Integrate?
Protect Your Property With Home Lighting Control
Many homeowners invest in automation to make their home safer. From smart smoke detectors to surveillance cameras, integrated technology helps give you peace of mind whether you’re at home or away. But one aspect often goes overlooked: how home lighting control can simplify the security of your spaces. In this blog, we’ll take a look at the ways you can integrate smart lighting for a safer property. Read on to learn more.
Integrating Outdoor Lights
One of the smartest places to add lights is your outdoor spaces. Most uninvited guests will try to avoid well-lit homes, and your integrator can craft a solution that looks beautiful while keeping you safe. With landscape solutions available that blend into the foliage of your yard, in-pool options and even LED lights to run along walkways, you can have a gorgeous yard that makes protecting your property a snap.
Additionally, you can integrate motion sensors to detect movement and trigger floodlights. Modern devices are sensitive-yet-precise; your integrator can program them to only activate the floodlight when something human-sized steps into the area. That means you won’t have to worry about Fido lighting up the neighborhood every time he steps out to do his business.
A Safety Ecosystem
Of course, the beauty of integrated technology is that each component works with the others to make your life easier. In the case of safety technology, that means collaborating with devices like surveillance cameras and smart locks to lock down when the floodlights come on.
Beyond the outdoor lighting, you can enjoy a safer interior as well. Integrate your smart lights with your smoke detector to help alert the whole house when the latter is triggered. Your integrator can program a system that flashes when the alarm goes off, or one that lights a path to the front door in case of emergency. Peace of mind is unique to everyone, so work with your integrator to find a solution that works for you.
When Heading Out
When you leave the house, you may turn a light on upstairs to indicate someone is still at home even when you’re miles away. The problem is that a static light left on for hours can quickly indicate to the outside world that you’re out of the house. So why not program your smart lighting system to alternate between rooms automatically to look like the space is still occupied?
A smart lighting system can do exactly that. Based on your actual usage statistics, the system can turn on and off throughout the house, creating the illusion of occupancy and saving you energy in the process.
