Create Powerful and Personalized Spaces with a Painter’s Palette of Light

Imagine for a moment a sunrise. Vibrant colors spread across the sky, and warm, soothing light fills the space around you. Then, as the sun continues to rise, it energizes you and your surroundings with brighter, bluer hues. By sunset, light returns to a soft amber shade that puts you to rest.

Light is as dynamic as the life it illuminates. Yet, we spend most of our lives indoors under stagnant, uninspiring light that doesn’t always serve us. What if your interior lights could evolve, too?

4 Innovative Ways to Use Lighting Automation Scenes for Your Home

Make Managing Lights a Snap with Automated Lighting Control

Lighting control is one of the most sought-after smart home features, and the benefits are easy to understand. Lighting control can save energy, add convenience, and increase your home's safety. Lighting control systems also add the flexibility to fine-tune one light or many in a variety of ways.

Perhaps the most powerful feature of smart lighting is the ability to create a scene. A scene is a way to program several light fixtures – or several rooms of them – to specific settings at the same time. You can then set the scene with the touch of a button, a tap on a smartphone app, or even using a voice command. Sounds simple, right? Let’s explore some innovative ways of using lighting automation in your Park City mountain 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. Yet lighting can significantly affect our energy levels and mood, except you might not know it until you experience it. Like a thoughtfully lit restaurant can create the ambiance for a leisurely and romantic dinner, your home's lighting can set the stage for everything you do.

Fortunately, lighting has come a long way down the innovation path in the past few years. Two advances have led the way – LED and smart home automation. Combining this dynamic duo of technologies has enabled more creative approaches to smart lighting control in homes in Salt Lake City and the surrounding areas.

Get Peace of Mind with Smarter Home Security

SHTEAV_March_Blog1_SmartSecuritySystem_-SaltLakeCityUT_PHOTO

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.

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.

Perhaps the most important benefit of motorized blinds and shades is the energy efficiency they can bring to your Salt Lake City, UT, home. Let’s explore some scenarios to see how that happens.

3 Reasons You’ll Want Tunable Lighting for Your Home

SHTEAV_February_Blog1_TunableLighting_-BountifulUT_PHOTO

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.
