Lighting & Shading Control

Revolutionize the Way You Manage Light in Your Home

In an average home, controlling your lights is all about flipping lots switches. The lights in a room are either on or off. Depending on the time of day, however, the amount of natural light, and what activities you're going to be doing in the room, smart lighting can revolutionize the way you experience lighting.

Lighting and shading control enable you to set the perfect amount of light at the touch of a button or the sound of your voice. These systems give you unprecedented control, provide a superior experience, and increase security in your home. When implemented correctly, they will turn off when you set your alarm and dim before you go to bed.

As the largest and most experienced residential lighting and shading dealer in the Carolina’s, Audio Advice can design, install, and program the perfect solution for you, regardless of the size and complexity of the system.

If you're building a new home, we will work with you and your architect or builder to transform ordinary lighting into an elegant system that enhances your home’s beauty and gives you the freedom to easily set any mood you desire.

Form Meets Function

A well-designed lighting and shading control system gives you the ability to customize everything from individual rooms to whole-house scenes in an infinite number of ways. One touch on a master keypad, remote, or mobile app can dim lights for a soft romantic dinner while another can illuminate your entire home for entertaining.

Store personalized settings into different scenes and set them manually with the push of a button or automatically using timers and sensors. An elegant all-in-one keypad eliminates the bank of switches you find in a typical home. Our dimmers, keypads, and shades all come in a variety of colors to match the decor of any home.

Safety & Security

People often overlook the safety and security benefits of a lighting and shading control. Motion sensors, presets, and remote access mean you can create the illusion that your home is occupied, even while you’re away.

If you arrive home to a dark house, you can use our car remote to turn on a pathway of lights in your driveway or at any door, creating a safe zone for you to enter the home without stumbling in the dark.

Energy Efficiency

Not only do lighting and shading systems provide convenience, beauty, and security, but they can also save you some money on your energy bill! By using shading and lighting in conjunction with one another, we are able to control both natural and artificial sources of light. This optimizes system performance by making the most of the daylight.

A combination of dimmers, timers, sensors, and shades, used programmed strategically, will reduce lighting use and conserve energy.
