Once you only had two choices for lights – on or off. Today, you have the ability to maximize the control that you have over your home’s lighting with more powerful lighting controls. How did home lighting become so advanced? Innovation has brought residential lights from candles to LED bulbs. Likewise, controls for your home’s lights have come a long way.

The Early Years of Home Lighting Before Electricity

Homes once had no control over lighting aside from lighting a fire, candle, rushlight, or oil lamp. Sadly, these options provided little light. They also required constant fuel or risked burning out after a short while.

Over time, gas fed into homes allowed for better light after dark, and rose to popular use in 19th-century middle-class homes. However, gas lighting had its downsides, which included smoke, blackened walls, soot, and occasional explosions. These lights gave way to electrical light bulbs.

Electricity and Home Lighting Controls

Electricity brought greater safety, brighter lights, and easier control over light fixtures into homes. People could turn lights on or off with the push of a button or the flip of a switch. Incandescent bulbs also allowed for connection to dimmer switches that could change the lighting from bright for studying to low for watching movies. However, incandescent lights were not very energy efficient, and controls still required someone to move into each room to adjust the lights.

Modern Home Lighting Controls from Wall Panels or Apps

Today, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technology allow for the operation of home lights from anywhere. You can use advanced lighting controls to preprogram lighting moods in each room of your home. When you select the mood in the app or on a wall panel, you adjust all the lights at once to that setting. For instance, you can push a single button to dim lights to the perfect level for watching movies in your home theater. Or, you can brighten task lights in the kitchen to give you more light while cooking without adding glare to nearby rooms. App controls even allow you to change your home’s lighting from your car, the office, or while on vacation.
