Get Perfectly Lit Outdoor Spaces
Enjoy the Houston Fall Weather with Outdoor Lighting
The weather is finally turning in Houston, TX from the hot summer months to the lovely, cooler temperatures of fall and winter. While the rest of the country moves inside, it’s time for you to prepare your outdoor entertaining space. Adding home lighting automation to your outdoor environment is the best way to ensure that you can continue to enjoy the weather throughout the evenings, even as the hours of sunlight in a day wane. The right lighting will set the stage for the perfect outdoor entertainment space that can include outdoor televisions and audio systems. So whether you’re planning on having family and friends over to watch a football game or spending a weekend evening with your family, read on to see how outdoor lighting automation can provide a breath of fresh air.
Synchronizing with the Sun
As the day becomes evening and the sunlight dims, wouldn’t it be nice if your lighting could be intelligent enough to adjust? When you install a lighting automation system on your patio or outdoor space, you can have electric light that automatically illuminates with the changing natural conditions. If you program your lighting control to synchronize with an astrological clock, your lights will know exactly when the sun sets and slowly turn on counteracting the dimming sunlight. When you’re hosting an outdoor event, you’ll be able to stay with your guests all night and not worry about whether the lighting is appropriate; it already will be.
Perfect Outdoor Scenery
Not only will automated lighting mesh with the natural environment, but it can also easily work in concert with your other outdoor technologies. When you incorporate your lighting in an integrated home system, you can program what we call “scenes,” or a collection of settings across several smart technologies that transform a space at the touch of a button. For instance, you can program an “outdoor movie scene,” which will turn on the outdoor television and audio system, dim the outdoor lights, turn up the outdoor heater (as the temperatures get a bit cooler). Then, when your family settles in, press one button and the space will be ready.
On a regular weeknight, you can create a lighting scene that will highlight your landscaping throughout the night. Outdoor lights will not only look great, but they also serve the practical purpose of illuminating your walkways so you can easily maneuver through your yard at night. Working with a professional lighting installer will ensure lights are well placed to create the right scene.
As the temperature becomes more pleasant and the sunlight wanes, transform your outdoor space into the perfect place for entertaining and family time with outdoor lighting automation.
