Control the mood and ambience of your home with one touch. Intelligent & stylish keypads and touchscreen devices can control lighting settings & scenes, created for your individual requirements.
Different areas may require different lighting levels depending on the application of the room and by incorporating lighting control this can be easily changed. For example in the bedroom you may have multiple settings on one keypad; one with all lights, another with low light for watching TV and one with just the light above each side of the bed for reading. You could even have a sensor activate select lights when going to the bathroom.
Lighting is a part of the building automation system (C-Bus), its responsible for the mains voltage switching of:
- Blinds/ Curtains
- Ceiling Fan Control
- Air Conditioning Control
Another feature of lighting control is you can have pre-programmed scenes so if you are going away on holiday or working late, you can have certain areas of the home activate to establish activity to deter any would-be intruders. Should your security system be tripped (by intruder or smoke detector), all the lights can automatically turn on (warding off intruders) and the outside lights will flash so authorities can quickly find your home.
Lighting control not only enables you to easily manage many lighting zones increasing efficiency and security, it's energy efficient reducing running costs by having lights turned off in unused areas or lights at a dimmed level.

What is Lighting Control for Your Home?
Lighting control for your home involves creating an intelligent network of connected devices, which can be controlled from a central point.
Lighting control is a part of the building automation system (C-Bus) and can also incorporate automation or total control of the following:
- Ceiling fan control
- Air conditioning control
Lighting control systems can easily be incorporated into both indoor and outdoor sections of your home. They ensure just the right amount of light is shining when and where it’s needed.
Why Incorporate Lighting Control into your Home?
There are a number of reasons to incorporate lighting control into your home, both functional and aesthetic.
Wired and wireless elements can be used within your lighting control network to control not only how luminous aspects of your home appear, but also to regulate electricity use. Just by dimming your lights as the night gets later, you’ll be using less electricity and increasing the lifespan of your globes.
Nobody has ever said no to saving money and with the right setup, you’re able to gain more control over your power bill.
Depending on the time of day or night, different parts of your home require different levels of light. With a smart lighting control system, getting this just right is as easy as pushing a button. For example in the bedroom you may have multiple settings on one keypad; one with all lights, another with low light for watching TV and one with just the light above each side of the bed for reading.
You could even have a sensor activate select lights when going to the bathroom.
More Automated Lighting Control Ideas
If you’re looking for some more ideas around how to incorporate an automated lighting control system, then consider the following:
Bedtime lighting: Lamps or lighting behind your bed set at a comfortable brightness for relaxation and reading.
Motion sensors: Lighting that automatically turns off when it detects that a room has been left vacant for a certain period of time.
Outdoor lighting: An automatic sequence that is triggered by the garage door opening, so the path leading to your door lights up.
All on/off: The ability to turn either all lights in your home (or specific rooms), on/off with the push of a button.
Security lighting: Pre-programmed scenes to make it look like your home is occupied while you’re out or on holidays, to deter any would-be intruders.
As you can see, when properly implemented as a fundamental part of your home, lighting control has numerous lifestyle and safety benefits
