Smart Lighting is More Than a Luxury
Did you know that lighting control is the number one smart home feature requested by homeowners when doing any significant remodel or building a new house? It’s very logical – lighting control can save energy, enhance convenience, and even add a layer of security.
You may think of home lighting control for your River Oaks home as a luxury item – and you'd be right, as it's not an absolute necessity. But businesses implement lighting control too because they can take advantage of those same benefits we just described. And those businesses are not doing it as a luxury; they recognize the bottom line benefits of time, money, and improved environmental stewardship.
As a standalone solution, lighting control makes absolute sense on its own. But Refined Systems is a smart home integration company, and we do more than lighting control. We can show you that when you add other smart home features to lighting control, it becomes even more powerful and useful – for convenience, energy savings and security.
