What we do

The house of “old” had basically a switch, light and some plugs in each room. The house of today can have a keypad in place of the wall switch by the front door with a go out button that will turn off most of the lights, and leave a path of light on when you return home that evening. Or a good night button, so as you are ready for bed, a path of light to the master bedroom will light your way, the master bath lights will already be on as you arrive and most the remaining lights in the house will have turned off.

We also have to consider the energy mandates of today. Title 24 will not go away. It is our job to educate the homeowner as to occupancy sensors, dimming fluorescents and LED’s. Green is in. With a proper design and application – the final result will provide the homeowner with not only major utility cost savings, but a working lighting and control system that will show the house environment with dramatic and functional results.
