Inside Lighting Control: Beam Spread, Color Temperature & More

A modern, geometric house with warm landscape lighting

How You Can Customize Your Smart Lighting System 

Have you used a smart bulb before? They’ve become increasingly popular in recent years and are even available at stores like The Home Depot and online on Amazon. While it’s fun to play with lighting colors from your phone, DIY smart bulbs aren’t a practical solution to illuminate your entire house. They often have trouble saving settings, don’t communicate with each other, and lack customization options. 

But there is an alternative. Sophisticated lighting control systems like Lutron and Control4 are built for whole-home control and are smart enough to group lights together and operate them on a schedule. 

The possibilities are nearly endless with high-end lighting systems that can be used to make your house look and feel more comfortable than ever. 

Here’s how you can control LED lights in your Southlake home with smart systems like Lutron and Control4. And to bring smart lighting to your Texas home, contact Texadia Systems here

Home’s Easier to Manage When Everything’s Connected

Sometimes life can feel splintered—like everything’s disconnected. We try to make time for our work life, home life, hobbies, and exercise. We try to stay in touch with hometown friends, college friends, and family. Social events, errands, bills, to-do lists—it all can make anyone feel overwhelmed! 

We could all use a little simplification in our modern, hectic lives. But you don’t have to go off-grid to achieve simplicity. In fact, we can stay connected and use technology to live more effortlessly. When you own a smart home system like Control4, all your home’s devices and functions are controlled by a single home controller. 

And when you work with a Control4 dealer like Texadia Systems, we’ll design a personalized home system that syncs to your lighting, audio, video, security, and more. Rather than use separate off-the-shelf devices, here’s why it’s beneficial to have a smart home that encompasses it all.

Why DIY Smart Lighting Doesn’t Measure Up to Professional Control Systems  

Once you’ve experienced smart lighting at home, it’s hard to go back to the standard on/off light switch. With smart lighting, you can bathe rooms in any color and brightness imaginable, from the coziest candlelight hue to fun nightlife colors. 

Many homeowners are tempted to DIY smart lighting with Bluetooth or Wi-Fi-connected smart bulbs from Amazon or Best Buy. But they may be unaware that for seamless control and automation—even from miles away—you need a sophisticated smart system like Lutron or Control4

What’s the difference between a dedicated lighting system and DIY smart lights? We’ll compare both below, so you know what to expect for your lighting control

Let There Be (Smart) Lights in Your Dallas Home

People are introduced to smart lighting in many ways. Some start with plug-and-play smart bulbs that let them change the color from their phone. From there, they might decide they’d like to expand smart lighting across the house with a more sophisticated system.

Other folks may already own a smart home system like Control4, which they use for multi-room audio, video, or security. They might then incorporate smart lighting and shading, synced to the same system.

Whatever piqued your interest in lighting control, we’re happy you’re here. Brands like Lutron offer incredibly exciting lighting technology that lets homeowners transform their interior’s atmosphere. And beyond looks, it adds plenty of benefits to daily life.

Why Smart Home Systems Can Do More Than DIY Devices

Enjoy Comfort & Convenience with a Fully Integrated Home Automation System 

So, you’re thinking about making your house a “smart home.” Maybe you’re interested in saving energy or the convenience automation provides. If you search the internet for smart home solutions, you’ll often come across DIY devices like Wi-Fi connected thermostats, voice speakers, and smart plugs that promise to make your house smart. 

While these devices can be useful in a small scale, they’re not the most effective way to build a fully automated home. Instead, professional home automation systems like Control4 can seamlessly control all of your home’s systems, even across multiple properties, from lighting to security to the home theater. 

Below, we’ll explain the difference between DIY smart devices and an integrated home automation system so you can make the best decision for your University Park, TX home.

Building a House? Don’t Miss the Chance to Make It Smart 

Are you purchasing a new home build? Or are you working with an architect to construct the house of your dreams? 

In a new home, you’re free to create exactly what you desire. You won’t have to partake in the bidding war, and you won’t be repairing or updating the floors in a few years.

If you’re unsure about smart home control, read on to see why you won’t want to miss it in your new construction. As a technology integrator that serves the University Park, TX, area, we’ll shed some light on what to expect in a Control4 smart home. You can also learn more in our blog series here

5 Things to Consider When Building Out Your Home Automation System

5-things-to-consider-when-building-out-your-home-automation-system

Plan for Greatness with Your Smart Home Installation 

Today’s smart home systems have the power to sync all your technology, including lighting, audio, security, and beyond. With one press of a button, you can turn off your entire house as you leave for the day. Then schedule lights and the thermostat to adjust to the perfect setting for your return home, all from your phone or tablet. 

But a lot goes into a home automation system. We’re not talking about plug-and-play devices with separate apps, like a video doorbell or Wi-Fi-enabled thermostat. Owning a collection of smart gadgets doesn’t make a home “smart.” For true home automation, you need a central controller that unifies all your electronics into one intuitive system that you don’t need to command every time.

At Texadia Systems, we’re excited to help you build your new luxury smart home. Before you get started on your Southlake, TX system, read on to see which factors you need to consider first. And to learn more, subscribe to our free monthly newsletter on smart home technology.

Don’t DIY Your Smart Home System: 5 Reasons to Hire a Pro

When DIY Smart Homes Go Wrong

New plug-and-play devices like video doorbells lead many homeowners to think they can build a smart home system themselves. But a high-end automated home may include hundreds of smart devices (including lights and sensors) and require complex programming for custom scenes. If you try to assemble a system without experience, you’ll probably waste hours on a system that doesn’t work.

If all you want is one or two smart devices, then proceed with DIY. But a smart home system that unifies all your technology will require assistance from a professional.
