What is Home Automation?

Leviton, believes that enabling new technologies to customize and schedule common lifestyle activities performed everyday is beneficial in any home. Simply stated, quality home automation makes life easier. Controlling lights with single-button scene control and zone control add new dimensions to a lighting system—a dimension you can’t achieve with a solo dimmer on the wall. In fact, home lighting automation is one of the most powerful methods Interior Designers use to change moods in a room.

Every room in the home benefits from home control and home automation. Here’s just a few examples of popular applications:

  • Kitchen and Dining Room: Create scenes for the different tasks such as dining, cooking and cleaning.
  • Home Theater and Media Rooms: Create a dramatic “dim the lights before the show” integrated with your home theater system.
  • Master Bedroom: Control zones of lights from the bedside to turn ON and OFF lights outside, downstairs or throughout the entire home.
  • Landscape and Garden: Schedule when the garden path lights turn ON and OFF, or combine all the outdoor lights to activate at once for security.
  • Staircase and Hallways: Ensure safety by turning on lights at appropriate lighting levels throughout the day and night.
  • Living Room: Add elegance and intimacy. Lighting is one of the most powerful methods Interior Designers use to change moods in a room.
  • Family Room and Great Rooms: Select a lighting scene for one person to read a good book, or the entire family to celebrate a birthday party.
