Date Night

Planning a special night with your partner? Set a scene that will tame the brightness and dim your lights to a candlelight hue in any room you choose. When integrated with a home automation system, your date-night scene can also stream romantic music overhead and turn on your fireplace at the touch of a button. The only thing you will need to bring is a box of chocolates and a bottle of wine. Your partner will love the atmosphere that this scene creates.

Intruder Alert!

Have you ever been woken up by a suspicious noise outside? Lighting control can help ease your anxieties. With motion sensors and triggered outdoor lighting, your curbside and backyard can automatically illuminate when movement is detected, deterring potential intruders from coming any closer. When integrated with a smart surveillance system, you can instantly bring up live surveillance footage of what’s going on outside on your master bedroom TV. You’ll know in an instant if you need to call the authorities or if it’s just an animal exploring your yard.

Dog Walk

If you have a dog, you probably know the pain of having to take your furry friend outside in the middle of the night. Never worry about fumbling in the dark again. Set a scene to illuminate the pathway from your bedroom to the back door, and have the outdoor lights turn on, so you always have eyes on your pooch. Then, when you come back to bed, turn off all the lights with a simple click of a button.


If you have kids or teenagers, you know they love to stay up late. To help them get to bed on time, set all the lights in your house to a low dim at your children's bedtime so, even if you are already in bed, they know they need to go to sleep. Hopefully, they will know to brush their teeth and be ready in bed before the lights dim!

Party Time

For those who love having people over, lighting control makes party setup easy. Light the countertops so your guests can easily navigate to the snack table and dim all the other lights to set the mood for a great party. When integrated with your home automation system, you can also instantly turn on your audio system to your favorite party playlist and at just the right volume in any selected rooms you desire.

Keep in mind that you will need to experiment to find lighting scenes that are the right fit for your family.
