Get the Most Out of Your Smart Lighting
Among the many reasons homeowners invest in smart technology, security is at the top of the list. The steps you take to protect your home can be some of the most important decisions you make.

Illuminating the Outdoors
One of the smartest ways to begin making your property safer is with outdoor lighting. Not only does it make your spaces shine, but it can also deter any uninvited guests from entering your yard. With landscape, walkway and pool lighting, you can enjoy a safer environment both in and out of doors.
However, there’s more to creating a safe system than simply integrating beautiful outdoor fixtures. You’ll want a system that can act as efficiently as it is stylish. That’s why you’ll want to invest in smart floodlights and motion sensors. When they detect movement, the sensors will activate the lights and any other integrated systems – including surveillance cameras, smart locks and motorized shades. That’s usually enough to scare away any potential intruders.
Leaving on the Lights
When you step out of the house, you may leave a light on to make it look as though you’re still around. But after a while, a single light can become an obvious indication that you’re actually out and about. That’s why you’ll want a system that can make it look as though your property is occupied even when you’re miles away.
Ask your integrator about setting up an away mode that alternates the lights in each room throughout your house to create a realistic appearance of occupancy. Lights shouldn’t stay on in one room for hours on end; instead, enjoy a system that turns them on and off at irregular intervals. That will make it seem as though someone is inside, moving from room to room. The pattern is based on actual usage, so you can rest assured the illusion will look real.
