Building a Home with Indoor-Outdoor Lighting at the Forefront

Building a Home with Indoor-Outdoor Lighting at the Forefront

Lighting sets the mood from the moment you wake up to the moment your head hits the pillow – and every minute in between. Save energy, emulate sunlight, and protect your home with whole-house illumination and motorized shades. Read all about your options – you may be surprised by the possibilities!

Interior Lighting

Set the scene from dawn to dusk and throughout the night with our interior LED Lighting Design and Lighting Controls. Custom interior lighting can help brighten your day or prepare you for bedtime. Optimize and save energy: use smart home technology to harvest daylight or dim the lights just-the-right amount for a romantic dinner for two or a family gathering. Did your kids forget to turn off their bedroom lights before you rushed out of the house? Turn them off remotely or turn them on to make it appear to would-be robbers that you’re home when you’re not. Add interior motion sensing lights to your hallway so your kids can safely find their way to you in the middle of the night – or you can safely find your way to the kitchen for a midnight snack.

Motorized Shades

Sometimes you don’t want to add light – you want to take it away. At Insight AI, we work with industry-leading shade automation experts such as Lutron and Control4 to let natural light in and to keep it out. You can also use motorized shades to help control your interior temperature by trapping in hot or cold air. Mitigate damage from harmful UV rays and protect your furniture and artwork against fading as the sun changes position. And if you’re out of town (or out on the town), raise and lower the shades to make it appear that your home is occupied; many people don’t know you can automate your window treatments!

Exterior Lighting

While it’s often overlooked, the lighting outside your home is just as important as the lighting indoors – not only for ambiance but for security. With Insight Automation International, we can turn your outdoor lights on automatically after sunset on your vacation home in Phoenix, and turn them back off again at the crack of dawn, all while you’re in Calgary. Evening visitors won’t have to strain in the dark to read the number on your house, and your home will brightly greet you when you turn the corner on your street after an evening out. Set the mood in your backyard with custom lighting around your hot tub, spa, or jacuzzi and find your way in the dark with motion sensing lights that also encourage trespassers to move on.

Building a home with automated indoor-outdoor lighting is a bright idea! Contact Insight AI today and enlighten us about how we can help to illuminate your home – inside and out.

Keep reading to learn more about designing a home with functional and cutting-edge technology in mind.

Design a Home with Effective Task Lighting

Every room in a home is used differently and requires lighting specific to the space and the tasks you will be carrying out in each room. In the kitchen, task lighting is essential for cutting and cooking, in your den lighting should be tailored to reading or computer work, and in the bathroom a properly lit mirror is essential. No matter what room of your home you are designing, there is a specific task lighting approach for that particular space and task. Task lighting typically includes applications such as directional fixtures, pendant lighting, line bar lighting or under cabinet lighting, and lamps.

At Insight AI we specialize in functional lighting design that will not only improve the lighting of your space but will also simplify your life. Using the Control4 system, our team at Insight AI will design a system that connects all the smart devices throughout your home, from the lights to the motorized shades, allowing you the ability to control it all straight from your smartphone or tablet. Want to brighten the lights while reading? You don't have to get up from your seat—just select the "Lighting" option on your tablet - with Control4, it's that simple.

Designing with LED Lighting and Lighting Control

At Insight Automation International, we’re known for being able to help you to build a smart home with LED lighting and centralized lighting control. By designing a residential property with LED lighting and lighting control you can save energy, set the perfect mood, emulate and enhance natural lighting, and keep your home safe. By programming specific scenes on your Control4 system, homeowners can instantly change their entire home’s lighting with the push of a button. With a truly automated solution, you can press one button and prepare your whole house for a party, a romantic dinner, a “mockupancy” and more. Your lighting should always match the mood of the occasion.

Homeowners can help to ensure the safety of their home and their loved ones by using automated lighting design solutions. For example, if you’re leaving your residence, an “Away” button triggers your lighting to act as a security feature that can ward off criminals and help unwelcome guests from finding your door.

Residential light design is about more than just lighting your home. Automated lighting will make your life easier, make your home more functional, and keep you and your loved ones safe.
