Increase Productivity and Comfort Levels for Your Entire Family
Lighting has effects well beyond just your eyes. Your choice of lighting can have an impact on productivity, comfort, and mood.

Window shades are not merely a design element, but rather a functional piece of the home. By adding motorized window treatments, you’ll be able to block glare, make the most of day light, and create a more comfortable setting, all without having to run around your home to make continued adjustments.

Save Energy, Save Money
Innovative lighting solutions provide homeowners an array of benefits including energy savings. Regardless of the light source, by dimming incandescent, halogen, CFLs, and LED bulbs, we use less energy. On average, dimming an incandescent or halogen light will reduce energy use by about 20 percent, and significantly increase bulb life. Plus the more you dim, the more you save. While there are a variety of ways to reduce energy use, few are as easy as dimming the lights.
Elevate Mood During Darker Months
As the amount of daylight drops off during fall and winter months, its impact on mood be significant. Simply adding more light is not necessarily the answer. Bright light intensifies emotional reactions and can be used in targeted ways, but smart lighting that mimics the spectrum of sunlight can aid in boosting mood when real sunlight is scarce.
With coordinated control of shades and lights, homeowners have greater flexibility to fine-tune the amount of natural versus artificial light within a space. Wireless controls allow you to adjust multiple lights including table and floor lamps to easily create the desired mood. For increased comfort and lifted spirits, homeowners can integrate multiple systems like ceiling fans and temperature controls in addition to lights and shades.
Because light can affect the body and a person’s sense of well-being, it just might be time to take a closer look at your home’s lighting system. To speak to a lighting expert about all of the benefits of smart lighting, call 1-800-382-2939 or send us an email.
