You may think enhanced security measures are the answer – which is true. Your home can benefit greatly from integrated security.
But there’s something even simpler you can do to ensure the safety of your spaces. In fact, you can probably do it right now with your home lighting control system.
Using your lighting to keep your home safe is one of the simplest steps you can take.

Just keep reading for more.
When You’re Coming Home Late
Sometimes, there’s nothing you can do about staying late at the office.
But when you come home, you don’t want to enter a dark house.
Thankfully, your home lighting control system can help.
With the touch of a button, you can ensure your home remains brightly lit for a safe return.
Once you pull into the driveway, simply tap a button on your smartphone or tablet and the front porch can light up.
Integrated LED lights along the walkway can illuminate a safe path and help you avoid any wayward hoses or toys left on the walkway.
And when you step inside, your lighting control system does even more.
For instance, if you typically like to go to the kitchen when you get home, your system can light a path directly there – one that won’t disturb anyone who’s sleeping upstairs.
And once you’re done in the kitchen, just another touch on your smartphone will turn all the lights off.
When You’re Leaving on Vacation
Have you ever left a light on when you leave the house to make it look occupied?
It’s quite a common way to help ward off any prying eyes at night.
But with a smart system, you can take it even further.
Instead of a single light illuminating your home, each room’s lights can turn on and off, alternating at regular intervals, to make it seem as though someone is moving throughout the space.
For example, the light goes on in the kitchen. 10 minutes later it turns off while lights in the hallway turn on. 30 seconds later it’s off, lights turn on in the living room, and so on.
Smart lighting helps it appear as though your home is always occupied, even when you’re miles away.
