I have been looking into an automated lighting system, then i have a few switches inside of my property that control the outdoor lights, but there are lights on the front as well as back of the house. There is a light pole in the middle of my driveway. I also have a porch light. When I come back from work or out with friends, I dislike staggering around in the dark. If I forget to turn on the switch, after that we am greeted by a dark house. I then have to figure out which switch goes to what. With an automated lighting system, all my troubles would be over. I would be able to set a timed program on when the lights come on. I would like them to be on from 7pm to 11pm. I also would like the back of the dwelling lit up in the middle of the night as well as to turn off when the sun rises, however for security purposes automated lighting control would be a game changer. I am looking more at it for convenience. I also could eliminate that massive wall of switches if the lights were all a part of a property automation program. I could just get a smart pad inside of my property as well as if I need to make variations, do it through that! Home automation is going to be the name of the future, but right now I am starting small with a lighting control installation; Someday I might update to a security system or an integrated Heating as well as Air Conditioning unit.
