Smart Lights – Local Homes Use Automated Lighting Installed By Bekins

If you think about your daily life, you likely pay for convenience. You have a smart phone, a smart TV, but what about smart lights?

It especially helps when you have multiple stories to your home. When you want to go to bed but can’t remember if you turned off all the lights? Hit the “Goodnight” button. That not only saves you time, it saves you energy and can even reduce your electricity bill.

The pictures below offer recent examples of West Michigan homes with Lutron lighting control installed by Bekins.

The homeowners chose to automate their home with Crestron so they can control their entire home, including the Lutron lights and shades, through their iPad. However, they also have the option to turn lights on or off and even set “scenes” with a discreet control panel on the wall. As you can see with the pictures below, the panel blends in well with the home.

Our team designed and installed full-home control for a three-floor house with an attached barn along the dunes of Lake Michigan. In this instance, full-home control included:

  • whole-home audio
  • robust WiFi and cellular network services
  • automated shades
  • total-coverage RF remote controls in every room
  • automated lighting control
  • televisions
  • touchpads
  • keypads

BENEFITS OF A SMART HOME

When you have three floors and an attached barn, automated lighting control provides tremendous convenience. Turn all of your lights on or off with one touch. You can also set scenes to accommodate your needs.

For a home that has no protection from the sun, automated shades help control the temperature. In addition, they help protect your home’s carpet and furniture from sun damage.

Chief TV mounts provide clean look to West Olive home

Chief TV mounts in West Olive

Using Bekins and Classic Stereo for electronics from the very start of a home building process allows you the chance to show a clean and customized look. Thoughtfully designed and executed by the visionaries at Mike Schaap Builders and Benchmark Design Studio, a new home in West Olive uses Chief TV mounts and other features installed by Bekins to hide wires from view.

CHIEF TV MOUNTS DISPLAY SONY televisions

This home features both static TV mounts and mounts with swing arms.

The Chief swing arm mount keeps a low profile, collapsing to fewer than two inches out from the wall. However, it also offers homeowners flexible viewing. It can extend up to 25 inches and effortlessly tilt up to 15 degrees to achieve optimal viewing angles.

With planning from our team, the mount can help you hide wires and avoid using a TV stand. Yet, this home in West Olive at times still uses an entertainment center underneath the TV.
