These Smart Lighting Innovations Can Transform Your Home

It’s Time to See Your Home in a Different Light

Do you pay much attention to your home's lighting? Most people don't, other than to have enough of it.

Get Peace of Mind with Smarter Home Security

Go Beyond the Alarm with Smart Home Technology

You likely remember traditional home security alarm systems – so many homes still have them. The system had a siren, window and door sensors, and wall panels to arm and disarm them with a code. Who doesn’t remember the times when the alarm went off because your hands were occupied and you didn’t disarm the system in time entering the house?

Those systems are still around, but we believe that today’s smart security systems can do much more for your Salt Lake City, UT home. Instead of just sounding an alarm when a sensor is tripped, you can get better information on what's happening at home through smart devices. Not only that, but you can take action when you need to, with just a smartphone and an internet connection.

Let’s take a closer look at a smarter approach to keeping your home safe.

Beyond Convenience: How Motorized Blinds Help Save Energy

Go Green in Comfort and Style Year Round

Some years ago, power windows were a feature found only on luxury cars. Today, you’d be hard-pressed to find any production automobile that has the old style manual windows. You might think that motorized shades are somewhat of a non-essential luxury, but once you think through all the practical aspects, you will see why the benefits of motorized shades go far beyond the convenience factor - and we think they’ll be as prevalent as power windows in cars someday.

3 Reasons You’ll Want Tunable Lighting for Your Home

What to Know About the Latest Trend in Home Lighting Control

You may have heard about smart lighting and lighting control systems. You might think it is a non-essential luxury. Perhaps it’s not a must-have feature, but when you look at the benefits of smart lighting, they make absolute sense. Think about it this way – your home has a dishwasher, right? It is not an absolute necessity, but you might be hard-pressed to think about giving it up and washing all your dishes manually.

Lighting control has incredible benefits in convenience, efficiency, and aesthetics. But with advances in the latest types of LED lighting, there’s another unexpected one – wellness. A new trend in home design and technology is Biophilic design. Biophilia, according to Webster’s dictionary, means “a hypothetical human tendency to interact or be closely associated with other forms of life and nature.” Applied to light, it means employing new technology to make artificial light more natural, allowing us to bring a little more of nature indoors.

You might ask at this point: Don't we get plenty of natural sunlight in Bountiful and all over Utah? Perhaps, but in our modern lives, we spend a considerable part of our lives indoors. And with LED tunable lighting technology, we can make the indoors feel a bit more natural.
