Elegant Keypads Offer One Touch Control of Lighting, Shades, and Climate
Do you know that the light switch was patented in 1917? Over a century later, we still use it to control our lights. However, if Business Insider is correct, these functional controllers may become relics of the past; an obsolete technology gone the way of VHS tapes and phone booths.
What’s replacing these light controls in the Los Angeles, CA, area? Elegant in-wall keypads that not only manage your lighting but your climate and motorized shades as well.
Let’s explore some of the latest high-end controls that make managing your home’s environment effortless.
Lighting Control Redefined
These keypads offer much more than turning lights on or off. Instead, they set the stage for the task at hand with custom-engraved buttons displaying the activity, such as “Dinner,” “Relaxing,” “Entertaining,” “Movie Night,” and many more. Then, with one touch, your lighting settles into preprogrammed hues and temperatures, the shades rise or lower, and the temperature adjusts to the ideal setting for your varied moods and endeavors. Remarkable.
