Kansas City Smart Landscape Lighting Systems

IDL Company’s commercial and residential smart landscape lighting systems are considered by most as the best in Kansas City.

What Are Smart Landscape Lighting Systems?

Landscape lighting is one of the most popular ways to highlight the exterior features of your home and landscaping. While traditional systems are perfectly functional, they are hard-pressed to match the convenience and versatility of the newest systems.

Smart landscape lighting systems are one of the newest ways that the internet of things, the IoT, is enabling homeowners to beautify their homes exactly how they want, with only a minimum amount of effort. We’re going to dive into what exactly smart landscape lighting systems are, how they differ from traditional systems, how you can get one installed, and what can happen if you don’t use a local expert for your installation project.

What Are Smart Landscape Lighting Systems & Why Would I Need One?

Landscape lighting is decorative lighting that is designed to accent various parts of your home’s architecture, as well as the surrounding property and landscaping. It is used to create a unified aesthetic and sense of continuity between the interior and the exterior of your home, while also expanding functionality. In short, it helps your home look as great at night as it does during the daylight hours, and can even make your property a little safer for you and your family.

Smart landscape lighting systems take this concept to the next level and integrate smart home functionality into the lighting. While conventional systems will allow you to light up your walkways, brickwork, doors, decks, and more, adding smart functionality allows you to endlessly customize, control, and automate your system to your exact preferences. This means you no longer have to rely on a simple photosensor to activate your lights. This means you’re no longer bound to one specific brightness level. This means you aren’t even bound to a single color of lights without changing bulbs.

Not only can you completely customize the appearance of your lighting features, by implementing brightness levels or dimming features based on your tastes, but you can add infinitely more functionality to your system. You can create zones for easy illumination or activity-based lighting requirements. You can even change the color of your lights to coincide with local sports teams’ game days or any holiday you can think of. On top of all that, you can do this from the convenience of a smartphone app, or with the help of Google Assistant or Alexa smart home automation features. The only limit is your imagination.

How Are Smart Landscaping Systems Installed?

The first step to having a flawless smart landscape lighting system installed is to contact a trusted local expert, like the team at IDL Company, and speak with someone about scheduling a project estimate. They’ll work with you to pick a date and time that’s convenient for you.

Your lighting designer will help provide guidance and advice for designing the system, and will generally approach it as an artistic endeavor. Their goal will be to provide adequate lighting to achieve not only the right style but the right overall aesthetic. The key will be using a uniquely personalized approach that allows a high degree of personalization while still giving a uniform appearance and maintaining the focus on your various property features.

They will discuss how different color temperatures will create different moods and will provide guidance on the different types of lighting fixtures to get the job done. While they will be your source of information, advice, and professional guidance, the ultimate decisions regarding the project will be up to you.

You will then be given the estimate for the project, and if you choose to accept it, you will then schedule the work to be done. Most smart landscape lighting systems can be fully installed and configured in a day. Once completed, you will be shown how you can access and adjust your system from the app.

What Can Happen If My Smart Landscaping System Isn’t Installed Correctly?

Smart landscape lighting systems can be incredibly complicated, and if they aren’t installed correctly by an experienced professional they can be incredibly complex and difficult to troubleshoot. Since you will also be dealing with a lighting system that uses home electrical current, you’ll also be facing a potential safety hazard if the installation tech is anything but an experienced professional. However, if you trust the team at IDL Company with your project, you’ll have a safe and beautiful smart landscape lighting system that will perform well for years to come.
