Control your atmosphere
Controllable and intelligent lighting can be the key to creating just the right atmosphere throughout your property for all occasions, whilst making your home welcoming, energy efficient and secure. Integrating lighting solutions with shading provides the ability to easily control motorised blinds and curtains, adapting to levels of natural light automatically or giving the impression you are home for security purposes. Lighting can be scheduled to turn on and off at random times of the day, along with shades lowering and curtains drawing…
As well as lighting keypads, you can also have the ability to control the lighting & shading systems via a mobile app and voice control. Through the app, you will also be able to adjust lighting scenes yourself, so you can be in total control of the system.
Design & Install
Modus Vivendi are able to design and install shade and lighting systems for properties allowing for the fully centralised use of all lights and other devices, as well as mood lighting. In modern architectural designs, new properties incorporate vast glass surfaces, which allow natural light to flow, but also therefore requires regulation. This can be achieved through the use of intelligent / controllable motorised shade control systems , blinds and curtains which are fully integrated within a lighting control or home automation installation. Where a property hasn’t been constructed with the necessary cabling, it is still possible to retrofit wireless lighting and shading systems, and have them integrated with a house control system.
To compliment the interior design, each of the lighting systems we use offer their keypads in a wide selection of finishes. This also means that we can match other wall plates and sockets within the rooms to provide aesthetic consistency throughout your home.
Further to controlling artificial lighting, the control of ambient lighting through automatic shades can be crucial, working in harmony in order to achieve the desired lighting levels, depending on your specific needs, times of the day, seasons and rooms within the property. A lighting control system not only offers greater control and enhances your lifestyle, but can also reduce your electricity costs and extend the life of lighting fixtures and bulbs through utilising sensors and timers.
As well as the aforementioned benefits, the design of lighting throughout a property is critical to successfully enhancing the home and complimenting your interior design. Our lighting designers will specify the right type of light and fitting for the application.
Having a fully controlled lighting & shading system includes the ability to have an ‘all on’ or ‘all off’ button by the front door or bed, change the colour of LED strip lighting altering the mood of the room at the flick of a switch, or just being able to easily raise, lower or even tilt blinds at the touch of a button. Once integrated with a home automation system, these controls can be experienced worldwide, not just within the property, creating a truly smart home.
Another great aspect of our lighting & shade control systems is the Mockupancy feature available with Control4 systems, Vacation mode available with Crestron Home, or Smart Away with Lutron. The system learns about you, your habits and rituals that creates a Mocukupancy as a deterrent to unwanted visitors, allowing your home to appear occupied even when you aren’t there, and providing you with additional piece of mind when you are away on holiday or enjoying late nights out. All you have to do is push a button to activate the function, and let the system do the rest, the lighting & shade systems will recall how you have used them and replay these activities so to anyone outside the house, it looks like someone is still at home, as opposed to lights turning on and off at specific times every day… A great way to add another layer of security to your property.
