Benefits of Automated Home Lighting

Originally posted on 28 February 2023

Home automation systems are used in commercial and residential properties to control features and fixtures based on rules and schedules. There are many benefits of using home automation systems which enhance convenience and security. At Engineered Alarm Solutions, our selection of customizable home automation systems in Toronto allows property owners to enable a range of automation, from home security cameras to home lighting. While there are many types of security systems and functionalities that can be automated, one of the most popular is automated lighting. 

Read on to learn more about the benefits of automated home lighting. 

Automation Enables Convenience

Automated lighting systems can be controlled remotely, allowing you to turn lights on or off, dim them, or change their colour from anywhere using a smartphone app or remote control. Whether you're on your way home from work, on vacation, or even currently in the house, these systems automatically control indoor and outdoor lighting around your home without any effort on your part. So if you're busy, away, or have your hands full, you can be confident that your lighting will be set according to your preferences, saving you time.

Improve Home Energy-Efficiency

When lights are left on for extended periods of time, they can cause electric bills to skyrocket. When life gets busy, turning your lights on and off can slip your mind, and when you're away for a week or two on vacation, or you've left for work without turning off your lights, the energy costs can quickly add up. You can program your automatic lighting system to switch off lights when rooms are not in use, around bedtime, or when you plan to be away, reducing energy consumption and monthly utility bills. 

Improve Home Security

Automated lighting is a simple yet effective way to improve home security for homeowners. Using timers or smart home technology to control when lights turn on and off, homeowners create the illusion that someone is home even when they're not. This can deter potential intruders who may be watching the house for signs of activity. Additionally, motion-activated lighting can provide an extra layer of security by illuminating dark areas around the house, making it more difficult for intruders to remain hidden. With automated lighting and advanced home security cameras in Toronto, homeowners can have peace of mind knowing their home is safer and more secure.

Enhanced Home Aesthetics

Automated lighting systems can be programmed to create different lighting scenes, setting the mood for various occasions and enhancing a home's overall look, feel, or ambience. If you're preparing for bed time, your lights can automatically dim to support your ability to wind down for the night. 
Improved Accessibility at Home

Automated lighting systems can be integrated with voice-activated virtual assistants, such as Amazon Alexa or Google Home, making it easier for people with mobility issues to control their lights without using their hands.

We are religious sisters and about two years ago we needed to protect our home because our neighbourhood is not very safe. We leave in a big house with too many windows and doors.

No sales pitch, just honest work and guidance on how to best protect our home. We now have a top of the line system, apps installed...


From initial contact until completed installation Engineered Alarm Solutions Incorporated were outstanding. I was provided with several options to choose from. A professional technician installed a new system in my home within 2 days of making the decision to upgrade my home security system. The service was prompt and the installation went ahead without issue. The price was very reasonable. I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking to install a security system.

5 star review Several years ago, I hired Engineered Alarm Solutions Inc. (EAS) to install a Monitored Alarm System, Security Cameras, and Home Automation (Deadbolts, Thermostat, Lighting Control, etc.) in our new home. When we purchased the home, it came with a pre-existing security system that was frustrating to use, had recurrent false alarm issues, and we needed to find a new company to install a reliable and better quality system. Our experience with EAS was extremely positive and we have...
