Outdoor Smart Lighting

With the integration of smart lighting technology, outdoor lighting systems have evolved beyond mere fixtures to become dynamic and adaptive tools that cater to the modern homeowner’s needs. Traditional lighting systems often rely on manual switches or timers, offering limited control and flexibility. However, smart outdoor lighting harnesses the power of automation to provide users with customization and convenience.


Top 6 Things to Consider for Outdoor Areas

  • Assess Your Space

During the consultation process with your home integration team, take a realistic look at your space and identify the key areas where outdoor smart lighting is needed. This could include pathways, patios, stairs, deck areas, gardens, and beneath architectural features, such as trees, fountains, or sculptures. By understanding the layout of your outdoor space and its unique features, you can determine the most effective placement for your lighting fixtures. 

  • Consider Safety and Security

One of the primary functions of outdoor lighting is to enhance safety and security around your home. A smart lighting integration company will prioritize areas where lighting is essential for visibility and criminal deterrence. 

  • Choose the Right Fixtures

We will consider aesthetic and functional aspects when selecting smart outdoor lighting fixtures to match your space. We’ll choose fixtures that complement the style of your home and blend in with your landscaping. Additionally, we opt for weather-resistant fixtures designed for outdoor use that can withstand exposure to the elements, like Coastal Source. 

  • Think About Light Levels

The intensity and color temperature of your smart lighting can significantly impact the overall atmosphere of your outdoor space. Advanced Premises Systems will experiment with different light levels to find the right balance between functionality and ambiance. For example, soft, warm lighting can create a cozy outdoor dining atmosphere and enhance your home’s architecture. 

  • Plan for Flexibility

As your outdoor lighting needs and preferences evolve, we’ll support you in upgrading your hardware, software, or overall system. We can add or remove technology over time.

  • Factor in Energy Efficiency

With the growing emphasis on sustainability, energy efficiency should be a key consideration when planning an outdoor lighting installation. Opt for LED lighting fixtures, which consume less energy and have a longer lifespan than traditional incandescent bulbs. 

Additionally, consider installing timers or smart lighting controls to minimize energy waste and maximize efficiency.
