We recently met a client whose home is automated, and he has no idea how to turn the lights on.
We were trying to make repairs to his existing system and had to run extension cords to the one outlet that had power. He now needs to call a technician to update his control board and get a lesson on how to operate the controls!
About a decade ago, when many of our clients were switching to full house automation, it was exciting to think you could be away from home or sitting on the couch and control a lamp. Alas, with so much technology come learning curves. Instead of flipping on a switch, our clients were struggling to remember the sequence of buttons to tap on their phones to get a lamp or T.V. on. As a result, we have started hearing from numerous clients about wanting to reverse the technology in their homes, and get back to a simpler process.
We pride ourselves not just on our installation capabilities, but the fact that when it comes to technology, our lighting system is as simple as a photo cell. For those who may be unaware, a photo cell captures light during the day and then turns on automatically when dusk settles, and will stay on until the sun starts to come up in the morning. It couldn’t be simpler! Many of our clients love their new LED outdoor lighting systems, and love the ease with which we can now help them control their outdoor illumination. No switches, buttons, or apps!
Northwest Outdoor Lighting is happy to install your lighting with whatever control you’d like; we’re familiar with several different ways to control your outdoor illumination, and can advise you on the best and easiest way to make sure your system works the way you want it to.
If you have questions; we’d love to help.
