Both commercial and residential lighting systems have one thing in common: when they work as they’re supposed to, they’ll make life more efficient.

For homeowners, one of the significant benefits of a smart lighting system is the potential to save money while increasing quality of life. But if you don’t keep your system up-to-date, you may be losing out on the actual impact of these benefits. These four reasons to update your lighting system will help you decide if now is the time.

  1. Go LED and Save Money

If you’ve had your lighting system for a decade or more, you’re probably losing out on the many advantages of LED lighting. Changing your system to LEDs means cost savings, both on your monthly utility bills and on your ongoing bulb replacement costs; most LEDs have a lifespan over 50,000 hours while traditional bulbs tend to last around 10,000 hours.

  1. Start Dimming

Dimmable light fixtures give homeowners several benefits: save money by not using bulbs at full capacity when you don’t need to and set moods for different settings in different rooms of the house. Couple your dimmable fixtures with a home automation system and you can control every bulb in the house at any time.

  1. Control Lights from Anywhere

When you’re going to be away from home, you no longer have to decide if you want to leave all of your lights on or off. Instead, control exterior and interior lighting from your smartphone or mobile device with a touch of a button.

  1. Strategically Place Lights

The lighting in your home may have been designed decades ago, which means it’s not optimized for today’s family needs. Get variations such as ambient lighting for watching TV in the living room, and bedroom lights that allow for different zones for late-night readers and early sleepers.
