How Advanced Home Lighting Control Can Set the Mood for Fall
Published September 8, 2021

Mood is everything. Mood can be the difference between a room that sparkles and shines and one that is too lit, or one that is just the perfect amount of aromatic atmosphere and one that is so dark everybody is tripping over themselves.


A great way to control mood is through lighting – and advanced home lighting solutions make this easier than ever! And, with Halloween on everybody’s mind, mood becomes even more important. To help celebrate the season — and also educate you on the greatness that is home-lighting control – we put together this list that will help all of our customers deck out their homes for Halloween, and the many seasons to come!


Scheduling Scary


By day, your house is brightly lit, the shades are up, and the lights off. But as the darkness of night starts to draw near, your system automatically adjusts your lighting and shades to the schedule you set. Your guests sit there, a gasp, as they find themselves draped in the perfectly controlled and lit Halloween setting, they now find themselves in.

Even better, having it set to go by itself can also be used to scare, as well. You could schedule blinds to go up and down during a Halloween party, or use an app to control the lights and turn them on and off as people enter and exit certain rooms. Flickering lights are sure to add some spooky atmosphere to any shindig you throw, and you’ll be able to do it all from the palm of your hand!  That’s some high-tech Halloween scaring, right there.


You are probably wondering how one takes their current lighting and shading system and makes it set for such scares, though. That’s what we’re here for! Give us a call today, and we’ll walk you through all of your integration options for lighting and shading.


Dementor Dimmers


There’s nothing Halloween-y or scary about regular, plain, boring, light switches. But dimmers? Now, those have potential for sure.


Dimmers come in a whole array of styles and possible switches, giving you something that will match whatever you are looking for to fit your home. They also save you money compared to traditional light switches. But what about setting up some scares? Yeah, they can help there, too.


With dimmers, your house can go from brightly lit to eerily haunted with just a quick slide, giving you total control over the lighting in your house. It is your house after all, so shouldn’t it look how you want it to?

Of course, this is just the beginning of what lighting control can offer you and your home. Give us a call today and we’d be more than glad to walk you through all of the awesome features of advanced home lighting and shading, and why one of our solutions would be perfect not just for Halloween, but for the whole year!
