Landscape lighting is a very functional necessity since you need it to light up your driveway and porches, but it can also make your Hilton Head/Bluffton home look even more beautiful and protect it all year long. While anyone can add a few lights to their front or backyard, it takes a professional to install landscape lighting that looks nice and also functions properly. Automate your outdoor lighting, and you’ll also make it super easy to control your lights any time of day or night. Read on to discover how we can brighten your outdoor spaces with lighting control.
Create a Welcoming, Elegant Home
The first part of your house neighbors or guests will see is your front exterior and facade. When your family and friends first begin to arrive for your party or reunion, set up your home, so it looks inviting and ready for them. What better way to make a good impression than to optimize your home’s beauty with strategically placed lighting? With various sconces and floodlights, you can create an array of selected lights to accentuate every angle of your house’s architecture. Set timers so that your lights come on right as the sun begins to set – and have lighting levels adjust as daylight diminishes into nighttime darkness. Use your smartphone, tablet, or remote just as you would with your indoor lighting control system. You can still control everything all from one source.
Your family and friends will love how much a little – or a lot – of lighting can do for your home’s visuals. And it’s all manageable with a push of a button.
Lutron Landscape Lighting allows you to install wall sconces and floodlights to optimize your property’s exteriors stylishly. Your guests can then arrive at your brightly lit home that looks prepared for the evening.
There’s no need for your guests to stay cooped up inside when your patio and backyard can provide them with a warm glow even after the sun has set. You can set up lights all around your home’s patio and even by the pool and grill, so that every part of your backyard is accessible even in the dark. You can still utilize your pool, hot tub, and outdoor entertainment area well into the night. When the weather is great, you don’t have to let the sun’s absence keep you from throwing the best parties throughout your whole property.
Basic Lighting Recommendations: Install lights on the house and in the yard to provide ample light for you to see at night. You’ll want to brighten the front and back porches so that if you arrive home late you can easily see the lock and door knob. We can even add an occupancy sensor so that the lights automatically turn on as you walk up to the house.
Custom Audio Video can add small lights along the driveway so you can see where you’re going and visitors can easily access the intercom at the front gate. Place path lights along your walkways so you and your guests can safely and easily navigate the backyard.
Accent Lighting Recommendations: If you love to hang out outside and entertain, then creating a relaxing area for lounging is ideal. Set up a pergola surrounded by flowers and plants and place comfy chairs and tables for evening diner parties. Then pick a few decorative light fixtures to hang under the pergola as feature pieces. String mason jars with lights inside around the posts to give it a whimsical feel. Accent lighting can also highlight special areas of your property, like a fountain or garden.
Custom Audio Video can install it on the ground level pointing up, or install it up high, and direct it down to imitate moonlight.
Lighting for Security
With lit paths leading from the driveway all the way up to your front door, your friends won’t have to worry about tripping in the dark or fumbling with their car keys as they make their way to your house. Also, entrance lights at the front door provide safety and security as they let the neighborhood know someone is home. Outdoor lights will also provide peace of mind. Because you can easily check on your property, you will feel rest assured that no one is lurking around at night. Tying in your lights with the security system will add another layer of protection as well. If you’re heading out of town or even just out for a late evening – you want to guarantee that your property is safe and protected. Landscape lighting can ensure that your house will be secure at all times! With your lights set to turn on when the sun sets, you’ll have a well-lit home that appears to be occupied…even when the house is actually empty.
Custom Audio Video can install motion sensors to your lighting system. In case of a break-in, the alarm will sound, the police will be alerted and the lights will turn on.
Complete, Easy-to-use Control in Your Hands
The best part of your landscape lighting control system is that you can manage the entire thing from the palm of your hand. Using your smartphone, tablet, outdoor wall panel, or any other smart device of your choice – you can adjust the lighting, set dimmers and timers, or schedule the system to turn on at certain times.
You can even coordinate the different lights for special occasions, like birthday parties or romantic evenings with you partner. During the holidays, or even when you just want to change up the display, you can program scenes that show-off brighter lighting or adjust colors to be festive. If your guests arrive before the sun goes down, you can set your lights to automatically adjust to the lighting as it changes over the hours.
Custom Audio Video can place easy-to-use controls in your hands so that accessing your landscape lighting system is simple and effortless. We can create different areas of lighting, so that you can adjust a particular section of lights independently, depending on the entertaining needs of the night.
