Overlooked Benefits A Lighting Control System Can Offer Homeowners

Posted on: 21 April 2017

If you're thinking about installing a light control system in your home, you're making a great choice. Sure, convenience is likely a leading reason why you're thinking about this upgrade, but there are also probably an endless number of benefits that you may have not even thought of. Here are just some of the benefits that you could be overlooking.

Increase Home Security

Installing a light control system is a great way to improve your home's security. When it comes to the average home intruder, patience is key. Generally, burglars will watch a home before just attempting to break-in. Those homes that seem to have a lot of activity will generally fall off their radar.

With a control system, you can give the illusion of activity even when no one is actually home. For instance, when you know you're running late from work, you can simply pull out your smartphone and turn on the lights to make a potential intruder think you're home when you're not.

Free Up Wall Space

Ever wanted to hang a picture, wall art or even put a nice bookcase in a spot, but you can't because you have a wall switch there. If so, installing a light control system in your home can help minimize this worry. One great thing that these systems do is that they reduce the number of actual switches that you need around your home.

For example, in a room with three different lighting fixtures, this could also mean three different light switches on the wall.  However, with a control system, you may be able to drop down to a single switch panel, which can free up wall space.

Add Value To Your Home

Installing a control system is also a great way to add value to your home. Whenever you decide to sell and move to another home, the goal will surely be to get as much from the sale as you can. Homes that are turn-key ready and equipped with multiple features are generally more valuable than homes on the opposite end.

Not only are they more valuable, but also generally more appealing to potential buyers. With a greater value and higher level of attractiveness this can take much of the stress of the selling process away.  

These represent just some of the benefits of installing a light control system. A professional installer, like one from Bausum & Duckett Electric Company Inc, can help highlight many additional benefits you can expect.
