Lighting Control Products
Lighting Control Products
Architects spend more hours considering lighting than any other item. And with good reason, lighting is highly complex and is becoming more and more important in home design. Lighting design and control has a number of different functions. Not only can it make a room beautiful and change the warmth and feel of an area in seconds but it can also save energy.
Imagine this.... With the touch of a single button, everything is set to exactly as you like. The “Wake” button next to your bed, raise the shades, turns on the lights, and switches on your coffee machine. Want to watch a movie? The "Movie" button closes the shades, dims the lights, and starts your media system. The “Night” button turns everything off and the alarm system on. The possibilities are truley endless, the only thing stopping you is your imagination!
Intelligent lighting systems are the future today! Only 5 years ago it was the item of choice for the rich and famous, nowadays it is available to all. All our systems include iPad and iPhone control!!

Although all the products we sell are 'smart home' products, and some may even work independently of other products, for a truly integrated smart home you will need a control system. So what is a control system? Well a control system simply put, is the brain of the system. It's the hub, the main processor. It controls all the user inputs from touchscreen's, phones, tablets, keypads and sensors and uses that information to send out commands to connected devices. For example, you press a button on your iPad to close the garage door, the control system takes that command, processes it, and then sends the garage door the appropriate command to close it's door. Although that's a pretty simple example it gets extremely more complicated then that. For larger homes or commercial spaces with lots of people simultaneously using the system, more powerful control systems are used.
Control systems can provide you with remote controls and touchscreen too. These can be be customised to suit your tastes or decor and can compliment your smart home with elegance and simplicity. See below for the 2 control systems that CEAV currently offer. We can install non-listed control systems if specifically requested.
