Lighting. Dimming Isn’t the Half of It.


Dimming Isn't Even the Half of It.

Yes, the ability to dim light bulbs saves money, but for many of us the real value of lighting becomes even brighter when lights are controlled and auto synchronized with our activities or respond to our personal needs. Enter the Barney Miller integrated lighting and control solutions.

What makes lighting control different from everyday lighting?

Both indoor and outdoor lights can be set to turn on just before sunset and off at sunrise – without any interaction by you. Indoor lights can be set to make it appear that your empty home is occupied while you’re away. This is much more than a timer. Lights can be set up to change at the right time, every time and based on your own personal lifestyle. Outdoor driveway lights can activate automatically as you arrive home—and a welcoming indoor entry light can greet you as well. With the experts on our team at Barney Millers, your lights can be programmed to adjust based on time of year as the days get shorter and more lighting may be needed earlier in the day. We can even create a special flash to signal events such as the arrival of family member (yes, this is great for teenagers).

What can I use to control lighting

What can I use to control lighting?

At Barney Millers, we offer several convenient ways to control your lighting. Depending upon your needs, home and budget, we can provide you with an easy-to-use mobile app that puts the control right in your hands and is available from wherever you are. So, for example, let’s say you are leaving the office late and realize how dark it is. You can adjust your lights at home to welcome you as you drive in. Or we can provide you with elegant on-wall keypads that come in a variety of finishes to match your décor. If you want to step up to the premium level, we offer an array of touchscreens that can sit on the table or on the wall. It’s really up to you! And we personalize any or all of these to suit your needs.

Lighting control means greater peace of mind.

So, in addition to thinking about how a professionally installed lighting and control system can add convenience, enhance the mood, save money and conserve energy, also consider how lighting control can improve your overall security and sense of wellbeing. For outdoor lighting, we like Coastal Source, and have many options.

With Barney Millers lighting control systems, you’ll never arrive home to a dark house again. Bright idea. And very safe family. That’s your home with Barney Millers.
