For many years, people have dreamed of having an automated home system that would allow them to turn the lights on or off from the comfort of their living room couch. Not to mention how many times have you left home and then realized that you left the lights on? Now that dream is a reality with home automation systems with lighting controls.
The Future Is Now
Now you can operate all of your light controls without even being home. You can deter potential thieves by programming your lights to come on and turn off at selected intervals to give your home a lived in look. Getting home late? You can turn your garage lights on before you get home so you can see what you’re doing.
These controls are just as useful when you’re home as when you are away. You can dim lights in anticipation of a hot date. And even better, your lighting system can easily be tied in to a complete home security network that you use the same controls to operate that you use for your lights.
Lighting Systems Controllers
The controllers for these systems are not nearly as expensive as you might think, with most being just a few hundred dollars in price. With these devices installed, you can control up to several hundred devices and control them from any standard web browser. You can also chose to use an Apple or Android app to control them and most do not require the use of a PC or other computer to use them.

Now you can rest assured that your home is safe and secure no matter where you are. More than one person can have access to the network, so your spouse and children can also use the system and you do not have to worry about their commands taking precedent over yours. The network stays aware of the status of your lights and works with you to let you know the status.
