Lighting is a critical element of a home’s design. It sets the mood, whether bright and joyous or laced in shadows and mysterious. An experienced systems integrator and lighting designer considers both natural light and artificial light, combining natural light and colours to create stunning spaces.

Good lighting control helps family members perform tasks and light their way in the dark. Great lighting transforms a space and brings a room to life. As Frank Lloyd Wright said, “Form follows function—that has been misunderstood. Form and function should be one, joined in a spiritual union.”

At Animative Smart Home we combine the many lighting design elements with the latest lighting control technology to create indoor spaces and outdoor areas that leave our clients breathless.

Lighting Features

Animative Smart Home is a smart home integrator and lighting designer that uses state-of-the-art technology to create functional, efficient, and beautiful lighting environments. We artfully combine decorative pendants and lamps, recessed, under-cabinet, step, and track lighting, and utilize downlighting, wall washing, and silhouetting to create different effects. This layered lighting approach includes task lighting and ambient lighting, and it highlights important architectural features and artwork.

We also take the time to understand our client’s vision and needs. What tasks do they regularly perform? Where do they entertain, and what type of space do they enjoy sharing with friends and family?

The Power of Colour

In addition to the fixtures and the placement of lighting, the direction, intensity, and colour are paramount in the design. Today’s tuneable full-spectrum LED lighting has transformed the possibilities in home lighting.

Now, homeowners and designers have millions of colours of light at their disposal—all the colours in the visible light spectrum.  For example, your lighting can transform a space with a blue-violet hue when hosting an event. When dining outside in the backyard with family and friends, your landscape and patio lights can convert to an amber glow the colour of candlelight.

Once we know the hue and intensity you enjoy for various occasions, we’ll program them into your system. Tap your Entertainment, Outdoor Dining, or Good Morning button to set the lighting and your home’s climate, shades, audio and video, security, and more.

Control4’s circadian lighting also enhances ambient natural light by mimicking the daylight coming through the windows. We can program the lights to automatically simulate natural light, changing as the day progresses.

One Touch Control

Integrating your lighting system with your Control4 home automation system offers effortless lighting control. One touch on your touchscreen, remote, or keypad, and your lights change in hue and intensity.

This type of smart lighting control also saves energy, automatically turning off the lights when someone leaves a room. Then, when you pull into the driveway, your landscape and front entrance lights illuminate, welcoming you home.

Create a beautiful space that exceeds your expectations and elevates your day-to-day lifestyle. To learn more about lighting design or to schedule a complimentary consultation contact Animative Smart Home today.
