The future is upon us, and homeowners across Coeur d'Alene, ID, demand smarter, better residential technology solutions. For local architects and designers, staying on top of these technologies is often the difference between securing a project or not. One of the areas where we have seen the most significant change is lighting control.
Over the last twenty years, lights have evolved from store-bought light bulbs managed by on-wall switches to smart, self-adjusting, app-integrated and automated fixtures and intuitive interfaces. With so much change, how can you stay on top of all the latest products and technology trends?
At Summit Technology Group, smart lighting is an integral aspect of all our projects, and we partner with industry professionals to bring clients across Idaho the future of light!
If you or your clients are thinking about an upgrade, here are some of the advantages to installing smart lights at home.

As a Lutron Diamond Dealer, we carry industry-leading smart lights, switches, interfaces, and motorized shades engineered for convenience and customization. With a Lutron lighting system, you can control your lights from anywhere through the Lutron app, custom keypads, using voice commands or a home automation app from brands like Control4. What does that mean for you?
It means having the lights do the work for you. Imagine coming home from work during the winter and the lights automatically turning on for perfect illumination as you walk inside. Or not having to get up from the couch to turn a light on or off, and automating every fixture at home to respond to exterior light conditions, the time of day, or the season.
With smart lighting, customization goes far beyond integration and automation. You can now choose from a variety of colors and brightness levels, and even create unique lighting scenes to match any mood and occasion. Do you need to stay up late at the home office? Set up a bright and energizing lighting scene at the tap of your screen. Are you feeling a bit under the weather? How about a warm, cozy scene to make the most out of the time you have to rest?
Do smart lights conjure images of home security? They should! Lutron products make it easy to simulate someone is home at any time, deterring potential burglars from ever coming into your property. A video doorbell can alert you any time there is someone at the front door, and a single tap will raise the shades and turn the front porch lights on to get a better view of who is there. It doesn’t matter if you are on the other side of the world!
Automation and smart lights also lead to better, more efficient energy management. Employ photosensors that dim or shut off lights if natural lighting is available. Make sure lights are off in unused rooms through occupancy sensors.
