Lighting Control

Lighting control offers local and remote control of lights in your home. Besides turning on/off or dimming individual lights or lighting groups, it is also possible to define lighting scenes. Lighting scenes involve multiple lights, each preset to custom dim level. They are for creating different atmospheres in the home each accommodating specific moods or occasions. You can recall lighting scenes with a single press of a button or even pre-scheduled.

Here are some examples:

  • At bedtime the system can automatically dim down the lights slowly after your child has gone to bed the same way as the sun goes down. In this way your child can fall sound asleep without you having to get out of bed to manually turn them off.
  • You can program the lights to automatically turn on along your most traversed path in the night.
  • Setting the alarm when leaving can automatically turn off all the lights and other plugged in devices. Shutters can be closed and at the same time the outdoor lights turned on (under pre-programmed lighting conditions).
  • When you’re away the system can simulate occupancy by turning the lights on and off the same way as if you were home, keeping burglars away from your property.
  • Lights can be dimmed based on the amount of external light to maintain a constant light level and save energy at the same time.
  • Inviting your sweetheart over for a romantic dinner? Do you want to spend the evening with your spouse without the kids? With a proper lighting scene you can magically create a romantic atmosphere with lights and the sounds of soft music. The rest is up to you.
  • Are the lights too bright when watching TV? If so, then set the suitable lighting mood and you can quickly engross yourself in your favorite movie.
  • If you are inviting company and want to show off your newest paintings or just want a cozy lighting mood.
