Modern light switches make it possible for you to fine-tune your lighting installation to suit your lifestyle. If you want the little extras that come with today’s lighting products, here are some options you can choose from.
| Delayed Fade |
Delayed fade lights have sensors that monitor movement or door positions to automatically turn on or turn off. If you close the door the lights slowly fade. If the door is left open, the lights fade after ten minutes of activity. Delayed fade switches are easy to install.
| Occupancy Switches |
Occupancy light switches also contain sensors that monitor room activity. The detect fine motion up to 900 square feet. They work with different types of bulbs including incandescent, halogen, and LED bulbs. You can choose from single or multiple switches.
| Central Light Control Systems |
Like many other systems in your home, you can now automate all the lighting in your home and control it remotely using an app on your smartphone. Central lighting is easy to setup and schedule. You also have options such as Alex-configuration, voice assistance,
Like regular switches, dimmer switches offer a wide array of features that allow you create a unique experience for your home. Options include:
With timers you can program activation time. For instance, if your family wakes up, goes to bed, or arrives at the house at the end of the day around the same time, you can program the lights to turn on or off according to daily routine.
Programmed lights go one step further than timers, in that you can program activation time, as well as the level of dimness you want to set. This allows you to create the mood the room without manually setting the dimmer.
The sensor in a dimmer switch activates lights when motion is detected in a room and turns off lights automatically after the absence of movement. You can fully program motion sensors including what level you want to dim the lights.
You can combine a light switch and an outlet depending on your personal needs. It’s ideal for areas when both come in handy in proximity to one another.
Light Switch Timers
One of the easiest ways to manage home lighting is by installing a wall timer. Using a wall timer allows a particular device to operate for a specified amount of time. There are many wall timer solutions available to meet your specific needs.
| Smart Timers |
A smart wall timer uses a technology (such as Insteon) to schedule on/off times to control one or more devices on the same network. Additionally, these timers can often be remotely programmed from another controller on that same network.
| Programmable Timers |
A programmable wall timer can manage multiple events per day extending up to 24 hours a day and up to seven days a week. Many of them are solar sensitive, which means they can turn on and off based on the amount of natural light in the room.
| Push-Button Timers |
Push button timer switches contain multiple buttons that you can manually control for a specific amount of time. The switches have timings that range from 5 minutes to 12 hours and can be used to automatically shut off lights, spas, heaters, ceiling fans, bathroom vans, and other devices.
