The ability to control the amount and kind of light in a room in your home or office is just another feature of smart-home automation.
Having your lighting programmed for specific settings improves the enjoyment of one’s home or office. It could also help control costs.
At the touch of a button, you are able to control natural light in a room through the use of automated shades and window coverings; that helps increase energy efficiency.
Automated systems can be programmed to control sunlight during daylight hours in the winter to reduce heating costs. In the summer automated systems can help reduce air conditioning costs and prolong the life of furnishings by controlling the amount of damaging UV rays that enter through the windows.
It’s an exciting advancement toward greener, more energy efficient buildings.
