Lighting and shades creates a more secure, comfortable and energy-efficient home. You also beautify and simplify your walls by replacing rows of switches with a single keypad. As you approach your driveway, exterior flood lights automatically turn on, lighting the pathway from your garage to your home. Should you hear a strange sound in the middle of the night, with the push of a single button, you can turn on all the lights in and around your home. When you leave for vacation, you press one button so that the lights turn on and off and the shades open and close during pre-set times to create a lived-in look. And you can check settings and make adjustments from your mobile device from anywhere in the world.
