Make it look like you're home when you're not with lighting schedules

Lighting schedules are a useful tool in home security, and they have more features than you'd think.

Lighting schedules are a great way to deter burglars by making your home look occupied when you're not there. This comes in handy any time of year, but especially around the holidays when traveling is common and we have extra lights on our homes.

You can even control your lights remotely with WH Security interactive features that allow you to set realistic lighting schedules that mimic real life, such as having your lights come on at sunset, or at slightly randomized times. And during the Holiday season you can have your outdoor lights turn on and off at predetermined times.

Have you ever heard of “smart lights?” Simply put, smart lights are connected seamlessly to other devices through a central platform. One of the main advantages of using smart lights is that other devices around your home can interact with your lights. This enables them to do helpful things based on an understanding of what you’re doing. For example, you can have your porch lights turn on automatically when you remotely unlock your front door’s smart lock – a great feature on dark evenings when you’re carrying in groceries.

Maximize your energy savings with lighting schedules and LED bulbs.
