Experience Lighting Control with a Dedicated Smart System

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

How to Replicate Daylight with Smart Lighting Control

Discover the Mood-Boosting Benefits of Natural Light at Home

When you purchase a lightbulb at the store, what you see is what you get. Some lights shine ultra-bright, while others produce a warm, golden hue. Other bulbs appear icy blue-white. While bright lighting may be helpful for your morning routine, at night, it’s harsh and uncomfortable on the eyes.

This isn’t the case with smart lighting control. Lighting control brands like Lutron let you intelligently customize and automate your LED bulbs’ color temperature and brightness. Throughout the day, lights can gradually shift to mimic the appearance of sunlight outside, following the changing sky.

Also, if you set your home’s lights to the wrong color temperature or brightness level, you could accidentally tamper with your mood, sleep, and home atmosphere. Below are a few ways lighting control can improve the living experience at your home in Southlake, TX.

Sleep Better & Live Well with Help from Tunable Lighting  

Do you wake up feeling groggy each morning, hitting the snooze button until you’re running late? Do you rely on several cups of coffee to get through the day? And by nightfall, do you lie in bed with racing thoughts, unable to sleep?

If that sounds like your daily experience, your circadian rhythm may be out of sync. The circadian rhythm is the internal clock that tells our bodies when to feel alert, sleepy, and even hungry. Our circadian rhythms are self-regulated but are largely influenced by the sun.

So, what happens to our inner clock if we spend most of our time indoors? Artificial lighting can throw our sleep patterns off course, wreaking havoc on our health. Luckily, smart lighting control systems are transforming how we light our homes, leading to healthier lifestyles.

In this article, we’ll share how circadian lighting works, why it’s important, and how it will enhance your University Park, TX home. And if you’re interested in lighting control, contact Texadia Systems to get started on a new home system.

Why Offices Are Embracing Motorized Blinds & Lighting Control

why-offices-are-embracing-motorized-blinds-lighting-control-1

Lighting Control Is Not a Passing Office Trend. Here’s Why It’s Here to Stay. 

As businesses return to the office, we’ve seen many new workplace trends emerge, like open floor plans and ‘hot-desking.’ Whether these office designs will stick, it’s too soon to tell. But there’s one development we’re confident will become a permanent staple: smart lighting control. 

Lighting control systems can automate both smart LED bulbs and motorized shades. Your office lights can gradually brighten and dim, then turn off on their own when the office is vacant. And during the hottest times of day, shades can silently lower to reduce glare and keep rooms cool.

You may be thinking, ‘But we get by fine already without smart lighting and shades. Why would we need that?’

Motorized blinds and intelligent lighting actually provide numerous benefits, including saving time, energy, and creating a more positive workplace. Read on to see how automated lighting will benefit your Frisco, TX business, and contact Texadia Systems here to learn more.

How Energy-Efficient Is LED Lighting?

how-energy-efficient-is-led-lighting-1

Save Energy Instantly with a Smart LED Lighting Design 

Most of us grew up with incandescent lightbulbs, the “standard” bulb that stayed relatively the same since Edison’s invention in 1879. Then came compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs)—those spiral-shaped lights that claimed to use less energy. But today, LED bulbs are regarded as the most energy-efficient way to illuminate your home. If you’re reading this, you may be wondering just how resourceful they can be. 

When LED bulbs first hit the market, they were seen as too expensive and too bright. But they’ve come a long day in both price, brightness, and color temperature options. With a smart LED lighting design in your Frisco, TX home, you can customize your lights to look however you want—while saving energy! With smart LEDs, your home will look better than ever while lowering energy bills and helping the environment. Read on to discover how LED lights make a difference. And to learn more about smart lighting design, check out our blog articles here

Conference Room AV for the Modern Workspace 

People like to complain about meetings—that they’re boring, too long and accomplish little. But meetings and conferences should be where your team sets goals, raises questions, and comes together to share their strengths toward a common objective. 

Every business owner likes to imagine that their company’s conference room will inspire hours of productivity with the walls and table covered in new ideas. But more often than not, teams aren’t focused, and the technology won’t cooperate. 

In today’s business landscape, you need conferencing technology that’s up to speed with both in-person and remote work. The best conference rooms use technology not only as a tool but to create the ideal work environment. 

As a commercial AV integrator based in the McKinney, TX, area, we help Texas businesses create collaborative and inspiring office spaces. Below, we’ll share how the right conference room AV and automation can help you make the most of your meetings. You can also learn more in our blog and monthly newsletter

Simplify Your Routine and Transform Your Home’s Appearance

We’ve all sat down for a movie and thought, “It’s too bright in here.” You stand up to turn off the lights, and next, you might say, “Now it’s too dark! We can’t see each other!” You turn on the hallway light and ask your family or friends if that now looks good. Finally, you can start the movie. 

These sorts of dilemmas happen all the time. But Lutron, the lighting control manufacturer, says no more to poor lighting. Light, both natural and artificial, is an essential component to cultivating an atmosphere at home. Lutron’s motorized shades and lighting solutions use smart home automation to make the most of your interior spaces.

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

dont-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.

Lighting Control Systems: What Do They Do & How Do They Work?

lighting-control-systems-what-do-they-do-how-do-they-work

How Lutron Levels Up Your Home’s Lighting 

New smart LED lightbulbs like Philips Hue let users adjust the bulb’s color while toggling on and off over a smartphone app. But a complete lighting control system like Lutron is much more sophisticated than a single smart bulb. Lutron systems let you control every lighting fixture and motorized shade in your house, automating the atmosphere automatically through sensors and schedules. 

With a lighting system, you won’t have to take out your app every time you want to use a bulb and change the color. Lutron knows your preferences and will adjust the lights based on your routine, responding to voice commands or pre-programmed scenes. 

How does Lutron work? As a certified Lutron dealer, we’ll share all you need to know about total lighting control below. And to learn more about installing Lutron lighting in your Dallas, TX home, contact Texadia Systems here! We’re always open to new home projects.
