Good lighting has the ability to set the scene for different moods. It can also make you feel comfortable & secure. Controlled lighting will help reduce your impact on the environment giving you a smaller carbon footprint. Dimming the lights just by 10% will reduce your energy consumption saving you money and the difference in light is hardly noticeable to the eye. A bulb running at 90% brightness will also last twice as long before it needs replacing. A control lighting solution lets you do just that, take control. Forgotten to switch lights off on your way to bed? No problem, switch all lights off from a keypad by your bed. Alternatively, pressing a single ‘panic’ button could bring all the lights on inside and out if you think you hear an intruder. A burglar is less likely to hang around once the alarm is raised.
