KEY AREAS FOR SMART TECHNOLOGY

We take a closer look at the main elements of your home that will benefit from smart tech

LIGHTING

•A professionally designed lighting scheme comes into its own when it’s automated, setting the scene at the touch of the button and saving energy by only coming on when it’s needed. Here are the main considerations: Centralised, automated control such as Lutron’s or Rako’s can work on a stand-alone basis (ie, not integrated with heating etc) or act as a sub-system within a whole-house arrangement (such as Control4 or Savant). Additionally, some whole-house setups – Crestron, for example – offer their own lighting controls, as well as being compatible with the likes of Lutron.

•If you want lighting that’s really outstanding, consider using an independent specialist, who will put as much effort into the design side as the technology and controls. They can liaise with your wider smart home provider and supply any information needed to integrate the lighting with the other sub-systems.
