Control Your Environment

Savant lighting controls help rooms look their best while providing comfort and enjoyment for everyone in the space. When we install a custom keypad or touch screen on the wall, you’ll eliminate wall clutter and be able to easily access your smart home features.

Our team can program specific settings into your system so that with the press of one button, you can control your environment and create an ambiance for various celebrations or activities. For example, press “Dining” and the system will dim the lights down to 40% over your Christmas table setting for a fancy, holiday dinner party. With a soft lighting setting and a themed playlist of holiday hits, your guests are sure to feel relaxed and lighthearted.

Lighting helps you set the right mood at home. Bright lighting invigorates you while low lighting makes you feel at ease. Our dimmers make it easy to set the scene for any event.  We offer wireless solutions for automating and controlling outdoor lights, LEDs, floor and table lamps, and more. With this technology, you can access every lighting fixture in your home (including your holiday lights) and dim lighting levels from your keypad on the wall, smartphone, or other mobile device.

Whether you are entertaining some friends and family, getting your day started early to catch those door-buster sales, or preparing to watch a holiday classic like Miracle on 34th Street, Savant lighting controls can be tailored for every occasion.

Accent Your Décor

The right lighting level can do a lot to enhance your decor, but the location you install your lights and the overall design of the layout also plays big role on how your room ends up looking. We can put lights around your holiday displays to illuminate the beauty of your treasured pieces. In the kitchen, our team can place under-cabinet and overhead lighting to add touches of beauty and give you better visibility as you cook those seasonal cookies.

Whichever furnishing you want to bring attention to, One Touch Living can help by providing the perfect design for your spaces. We work with builders, architects, and interior designers to integrate your entire home with automation. So if you have a specific theme or design style you want this year for Christmas—and even all year round—we can make the vision for your home happen.

Decorate With Smart Shades

If you celebrate Christmas, then you most likely will display a tree in your front window or yard. People passing by love to look at the lights this time of year, so make sure you give them a chance to be in awe of your lighting display by opening your shades at the right time. Using your Savant System, schedule your motorized shades to come up between 5 p.m. and midnight, then close after you’ve already gone to bed. No one wants to stay up too late to turn the lights off and close the drapes, so this function is certainly useful this time of year. And if you don’t celebrate Christmas, you can still use the same controls to display any décor you like, like your Menorah for Hanukkah.

As the weather changes, your shading system will also help regulate the right temperature by letting in the sunlight at beneficial times and insulating your home at night when it gets a bit chilly.
