A lighting control system brings your home to life by creating distinct scenes to complement the character of the room or the occasion. Using keypads, a touch screen or even your phone, you can set the mood at the touch of a button, whether you’re entertaining, relaxing, watching a film or carrying out housework. A low-level night light setting can be used to guide you downstairs to the kitchen without waking up other family members.

There are also practical benefits to having a lighting control system installed in your home. For example, it is possible to switch off every light in the house when you leave for work in the morning or go to bed at night. Or by integrating with your intruder alarm, it is possible to flash the lights in the house if your alarm is triggered.

Lighting control can also provide additional peace of mind when you are away on holiday by simulating occupancy. Gone are the days of the simple lamp timer in the front room, a lighting control system records your actual activity over a week and then plays it back when you are away.

At James and Giles we also pay particular attention to the style of lighting keypads. We work with a range of companies from around the world to ensure a perfect design that suits the interior of your property, whether classic or contemporary.
