3 Ways to Enhance Your Home’s Style with Smart Lighting Control

3 Ways to Enhance Your Home’s Style with Smart Lighting Control
• Transform your space with pre-set scenes • Reduce wall clutter with centralized control • Expand the versatility of your home’s lighting

Why is Smart Lighting Important for Your Home’s Interior Design?

Smart home lighting control systems offer intuitive control which makes it easier to manage your technology. This in turn helps you create a beautiful, dynamic style for your home. From taking ugly light switches off the walls to adding a touch of creativity to your lighting, the right kind of control can enhance your interior and landscaping design.



Using Scenes to Transform Your Space
Scenes are an essential part of a home lighting control system, letting you adjust multiple fixtures simultaneously at the press of a button or at a scheduled time.
  • Using Manual Pre-set Scenes
    • Create unique scenes that you can pull up at a moment’s notice to prepare the room for a specific event or activity. This way you can prepare the room quickly for any occasion:
      • Party Scene: Press a button and colored LED lights go up in your pool, fountains and living room. Decorative fixtures light up your driveway while inside fixtures highlight new pieces of furniture or art.
    • Some scenes can be scheduled at a given time each day. These are a great feature when it comes to your landscape lighting:
      • Light Up the Night: Show off your home when it gets dark. Schedule a “Night Time” scene at 7 p.m. that turns on your outdoor lighting. LED lights highlight specific architectural features and important walkways.
Getting Rid of All Your Wall Clutter
Through a smart home lighting control system, you can access all your lights from a touchpad, tablet or smartphone. It’s a dream come true for interior designers. You can get rid of the switchers and dimmers on the wall and streamline your décor to fit your specific stylistic theme. Centralized control can affect your interior design in two distinct ways:
  • Get control from the device of your choice
    • Transfer all controls to one single device. Instead of five different switches in your living room, you only need one sleek touchpad on the coffee table.
  • Use scenes to reduce the number of switches
    • Instead of designating a switch for each fixture, install a keypad with each button corresponding to a commonly used scene - like a “Welcome” scene that turns on all lights or a “TV” scene that dims the lights.
Expand the Versatility of Your Lights
Home lighting control makes it easier to embrace new stylistic choices. With centralized control, you can bring in new features and ideas into your home from the comfort of your couch using your smartphone or tablet.
  • Get Creative With Colors: Change the color of your LED light fixtures to fit your mood or a given occasion. Go green for St. Patrick’s Day or red, white and blue on July 4th.
  • Highlight Different Features: It’s also easy to change up the things you want to feature. If you get a new piece of art work, turn up the fixtures around it to make it pop. Want to show off a new lawn ornament? Dim other areas in your landscaping and raise the fixtures around your new purchase.
We work hand-in-hand with architects, builders and designers to create lighting control systems that meet clients’ unique styles. Contact the experts at Pacific Audio & Communications to learn about the many ways smart lighting can benefit your home.

How Can Smart Technology Reduce Your Home's Energy Usage?

How Can Smart Technology Reduce Your Home's Energy Usage?
Identify Problem Areas With Home Monitoring Solutions• Help Out Your Air Conditioning With Smart Shading Control• Eliminate Excess Usage With Motion Sensors


Why Do You Need a Smart Home Monitoring Solution?
There are a lot of things that could make the energy bills in your Kauai, Hawaii home skyrocket. There’s the rising temperatures as spring approaches, the tendency to embrace the beautiful landscapes with large windows and doorways, and excess usage while you’re away. Alleviate these issues with a Crestron home monitoring system that brings all your technology together to find your biggest problem areas and design simple solutions.



How to Find Your Biggest Problem Areas
 The first step in crafting a successful energy-cutting solution is to figure out the rooms and technology taking up the most resources. Below we explain how to best find these problem areas. 
  • Using Your Energy Dashboard
    • Crestron’s Fusion EM Software lets you see how lighting, entertainment, climate control and security affect your usage.
      • Create historical reports: Look at your usage over time to see if certain months or even hours result in higher energy use.
      • Project future consumption: Once you start thinking of solutions, input them into your software to see how they would affect your consumption. These projections will help you pick and choose which solutions are best for you.
 How Can You Resolve Problem Areas?
 Once you’ve pinpointed issues in your home, it’s time to come up with a solution. Below are some common problem areas and potential solutions for each:
  • Reducing the Load on Your Air Conditioning
    • Make sure to lower your temperature when you’re not in your home or a specific room.
      • Install motion sensors so your thermostat rises in unoccupied rooms and automatically drops when you return.
      • Your home monitoring solution also lets you make changes remotely. Turn up your thermostat from your smartphone as you leave and turn it back down when you’re heading home.
      • We know most homes in Kauai are vacation homes. Pick out the months you’ll be away and let your system know the thermostat can be turned off or set to a higher temperature during that time.
    • With smart shading, you can use photo sensors to close shades as soon as they’re hit by direct sunlight to help cool down your home.
  • Reducing the Impact of Your Lighting
    • Adjust your default settings with a smart lighting control
      • Reduce the default settings on all your lights from 100 percent to 90 percent. Play with your Lutron dimmers to see which could go even lower.
    • Eliminate Excess Use
      • Use your tablet or touchpad to see if lights were left on in other rooms and turn them off at the press of a button.
      • Use motion sensors to ensure lights and appliances turn off as soon as a room has been unoccupied for a length of time.
      • You can also incorporate scenes that help you manage your lighting.
        • Away Scene: Turns all your lights off when you leave the house.
        • Goodnight Scene: Turns all your lights off at a given time every night.
