When you control your lighting, you control the look and feel of your home. By dimming certain lights and using others to showcase objects of beauty, you can instantly create any special mood. Imagine effortlessly lighting a romantic dinner for two or lighting a path for nighttime bathroom trips just by clicking a setting on your phone.
Smart homes are also energy efficient. Since nearly 20% of the average electric bill goes to lighting, having automated and nuanced control over lighting can result in consistently lower energy bills.
