Lighting is one of the easiest and most cost effective ways to create ambiance. The ability to adjust lighting levels is one of the main features of a home automation system. Dimming lights can dramatically increase your energy efficiency.
You can create lighting scenes for numerous activities in your home, including morning, afternoon, dinner, nighttime, sleep, all on or all off, and randomized scenes for times that you are away from home.
There are various types of lighting systems, including localized, centralized and hybrid, each having its own distinct benefits depending on your installation requirements.
