The Remarkable World of Smart Home Lighting Control

Enjoy Effortless Living with Today’s Technology

Did you know that the light switch was invented over 100 years ago? And, yet, we still use it to control the lights in our homes. Can you imagine if we were still watching the same TV that was first invented in 1927? The images would be faint, blurred, black and white, and coming from a big, bulky, box-like contraption. 

In essence, that's what it's like to still use a light switch in your Des Moines, IA, home. 

Today’s smart home lighting control consists of elegant custom-engraved keypads, beautiful touchscreens, handheld remotes, and your voice. But wait, it gets even better. Your lighting can also automatically respond with no effort on your part. Walk into a room, and the lights turn on. After everyone leaves, they turn off. You wake to lights the color of the rising sun and watch them transform throughout the day, settling into the shades of the setting sun at day’s end. 

Today’s lighting control systems offer beauty, elegance, enhanced well-being, and convenience. It's clear that if you're still controlling your lights with a switch on the wall, it's time for a change. Let’s explore the many options in today’s lighting control systems.

How to Get the Best Home Lighting Control Experience

Choose Quality Light Fixtures & a Control System to Enhance Your Home’s Atmosphere 

Smart lights were once a revolutionary technology, but they’ve become increasingly popular as affordable smart bulbs hit the shelves in big box stores. Homeowners today can adjust the color and brightness of their LED lights right from their smartphone or with a handheld remote. 

But there are limitations to DIY smart lights, and many people don’t realize that without a lighting control system like Lutron, they’re selling themselves short. It’s like comparing a flip phone to a smartphone or a Nintendo 64 to today’s Nintendo Switch. Lighting control systems are much more sophisticated and can achieve more than off-the-shelf smart bulbs. 

In this article, we’ll dive into home lighting control and what makes professionally installed systems like Lutron so magical. Get inspired below for your Des Moines, IA home!
