How can I keep my home safe while saving energy?
We have many options to keep your home safe. Use the “Away” feature to make your house look lived-in; the lights will turn on and off at varying times to make it appear occupied. Instead of keeping all your lights on as a default, the “Away” feature will keep only certain lights in the house on, which in turn allows you to save energy. Digitech Custom AV also offers exterior lighting that can turn on and off with the sunrise and sunset. If a person approaches the perimeter of the house, the outdoor lights will flash and alert you to the stranger.
What are the cost benefits of integrating smart lighting into my home or business?
By switching over to smart lighting control, The New York Times Building saves $600,000 annually in energy savings, which is 70% of its lighting electricity. By integrating dimmers alone, hotels and retailers can save energy and money while keeping the ambiance of the space. While integrating smart lighting control into your home or business might become pricey, it all depends on the scope of the project itself and how big or small you want to begin. However, when it comes to saving money by reducing energy costs, it is always an investment that pays off in many different ways but always for the consumer.
