How to implement a smart lighting control system

The release date:2020/9/18 0:00:00



Your hands are filled with grocery bags when you finally step back home. You are barely able to open the door, and now you find yourself wandering in the dark, trying to turn on the lights with your elbow. It’s late at night, and you keep on stubbing your toe for every step you take out your bedroom door. Or maybe it’s just late in the evening, and you wish to read a book with a glass of Bourbon paired with low-key lighting for a high-end cozy feel.


Lights are an essential part of a home interior design. They define our spaces and the mood we feel. You could easily ruin a romantic dinner with lab-like LED lights.



So when you’re away or at home but would rather not leave the couch, a smart lighting control system allows you to find light when you need it most. It puts you a click away from picking the type of light that best matches how you are planning to spend your time indoors. It could be a light string for late-night home wanderlust, or it could instead be an orangey light or no lights at all to enjoy a movie.


Either way, there’s more than a good reason to make your home lighting control smarter. Here’s why and how to get started.


What is a smart lighting control system, and why do you need it?

Lighting is more than just a utility for your home. It’s not just a series of bulbs and switches. It’s an aesthetic that creates an ideal movie-seeing experience for your family, provides an ambiance for a lively gathering of guests, adds cheer to your holiday season, and even sets the perfect mood for a date night.


A smart lighting control system allows you to monitor your home lighting through your smartphone or wall panel. Smart lighting is the intertwining of the lighting in your home and the ways in which you can dim lights, change colors, and hues in any and every room with just one action.


How can you install a smart lighting control system?

There are two main ways to install a smart lighting system:

Centralized Lighting: This option is used for homes in the new-build process or going through major renovations. It connects the lights to a central location that is hardwired to connect to a smart home controller, which is kind of the brain of your home automation system.

Wireless Lighting: This second option is used mostly for retro-fitting. You’d be using the same wires that run to your current lighting switches. However, the regular switches would be replaced with a smart switch or keypad that then communicates wirelessly to the smart home controller.


Many are the benefits of installing such technology, not only in terms of convenience. All the switches, dimmers, and keypads are made to match your decor and blend in seamlessly to your home. You can finally say good-bye to boring switches plastered all over your walls in a bank of four or more. With HDL lighting control automation, you only need a customizable keypad to take care of multiple lights in multiple rooms and a whole set of other smart features.


How can you implement a smart lighting control system?

The options for how you can put smart lighting at your service are practically endless. Here are a few of our favorites:


1.Set up the right lighting for every moment

Fluorescent lights, chandeliers, bed table lights, reading lights - Turning on and off each of these lighting fixtures to match every occasion is easier said than done. With smart lighting, you can combine the control of multiple lights into preset scenes. In other words, you can set up the perfect lighting for cooking, dining, watching TV, and more. You can also create a scene to turn off all the lights when it’s time for bed.



2.Keep your home safe when you’re away

Do you remember the scene of the pizza delivery in Home Alone? Kevin turns on the lights and moves mannequins around to make the thieves believe his family is at home. Smart lighting can, indeed, help deter burglars from targeting your home. With the HDL ON app, you can turn lights on and off from your phone even when you’re away. You can even play the same trick with several appliances, like a TV and a stereo system. All of this will make others believe you are at home even when you’re away on holiday or just out for the night.


3.Set lighting timers and sensors for hands-free illumination

With an HDL home lighting control system, you’ll never come home to a dark house again. Wherever you are, you can set the lights to turn on or off when you reach home automatically or after a certain time. To put it another way, your home knows when you’re arriving in the evening and sets your lights to lead the way. All of this with no touch at all. If that’s not enough, you can set up motion sensors to lighten up on the way to the restroom or kitchen for your journeys in the middle of the night. You can also light the way when your arms are full by using only your voice. You can even tell your house to turn off every fixture from the comfort of your bed.



4.Help the environment (and your wallet)

Smart lighting is “smart” for more than a reason. Besides its clear convenience, it also helps you conserve energy. Lights can stay consistently at a certain percentage of luminosity for a few preset scenes. Imagine you need a faint light in one room, and so you decide to set it to a 50% or 70% luminosity rate. That’s something that you can do both for indoor and outdoor lights to save energy even when someone in your family seems to always forget to switch them off.


Ready to get started?

We hope we lightened up your knowledge about smart lighting systems. Smart lighting simplifies your daily routine in an intuitive way that is easy enough for the whole family to use and enjoy. It also helps you to save money by cutting unnecessary energy waste.


But this is just the first hint of light when it comes to the benefits of smart lighting. There’s no better time than now to embark on your smart lighting journey, whose future looks brighter than ever.
