4 Bright Ideas for Adding Smart Lighting to Your Home


Discover How Crestron Lighting Control Makes Your Home Healthy, Beautiful, and Secure 

The right lights transform even an ordinary room into a beautiful space. Elegant table lamps, wall sconces, and recessed ceiling lights elevate the ambiance of your home in ways traditional lighting cannot. But it’s even better to integrate all the lights with a Crestron smart home system. Then, at the tap of an icon on a tablet or wall panel, you seamlessly adjust the atmosphere to your preferences.  

Few companies offer such ease in automation and light control like Crestron. In fact, their home automation platform offers customizable control of all your Crestron lighting– as well as every other technology throughout your San Francisco home. At AUDIOVISIONS, we install Crestron home automation systems across California. Discover the four primary benefits of a smart lighting system by reading our blog.

One Touch Will Light Up Your Life 

For many decades, we’ve operated our lighting one way: flipping a switch. Some people have dimmers and sliders in their homes, but still, the process is manual. That is, you have to get up to do it. But it doesn’t need to be that way. In a world with smart technology all around us, it can be so much easier and enjoyable.  

Your Crestron lighting is beautifully integrated with the Crestron Home™ system. With the touch of one “Quick Actions” button, everything is set exactly as you like. Set a scene in your home theater, and when it’s time for a movie, tap an icon. Then, your theater lights dim, the motorized shades lower, and your AV turns on – ready for the show! You can do the same thing for any room in your home: the living room, bedroom, dining area, and outdoor entertainment space. Simply set the scene for customized lighting throughout your home.  


Create the Ambiance You Want 

Lighting plays a big role in creating a mood. For instance, can you imagine turning on fluorescent lights for a romantic dinner? Not the ambiance you want to create! Crestron lights come in many varieties, such as LEDs, track lighting, incandescent bulbs, sconces, spotlights, and much more. In addition, the Crestron system can control tunable lights from makers like Lutron. So, if you want amber-colored lights during a family meal, it’s easy to do. Or perhaps you want red and purple lighting outside during a party. The choice is yours. Program the scene to add color to your life.  


Light That Promotes Health and Wellness  

It gets even better! The Crestron system not only allows you to control your lights via a smart device, but it can also work automatically. The company offers a circadian lighting (human-centric) solution that adjusts the brightness and hue based on your body’s natural circadian rhythm. Studies demonstrate that human-centric lighting helps to improve sleep, energy, and mood. Crestron achieves this by using various sensors to detect natural lighting and room lighting. Then it automatically adjusts to ensure the perfect luminosity in your rooms – from morning to evening.  


How Lighting Makes Your Home Secure  

You don’t need to be home to operate your lights. In fact, you don’t need to adjust them at all! A Crestron lighting system operates automatically based on a preset schedule, or it can turn off and on at sunrise and sunset. This ensures a secure home that is well-lit at the right times – deterring intruders and burglars. Also, if you get up in the middle of the night to use the restroom or get a drink of water, your bathroom and hallway lights softly illuminate (by using motion detectors), so you can see where you’re going.
