Lighting Control

Lighting control is one of those things you didn’t realize you needed until you have it. Besides the fact that you can save energy by slightingly dimming your lights, or having certain lights set on timers, lighting control is definitely making your life easier. Instead of walking to three different areas in one room to get the lights set to just the right brightness, you can simply press one button to a preset “scene” when you enter the room and it will adjust the lights in the entire home. If a lighting control system is designed and programmed properly, then it can be one of the best investments in your home.

Lighting Control System

One popular segment in home automation is the lighting control system. Lights are an essential fixture in every house and this makes them a good choice for automation. If used properly lights can enhance the beauty of the landscaping surrounding your house, and give the swimming pool a shimmering appearance. There are many reasons why people might choose to get lighting control systems put in. Some do it for aesthetic reasons while others see it as a security feature whereas still others choose it for comfort’s sake. The major advantage with such systems is that controlling all the lights together or individually, within or outside the home, becomes much simpler. In most cases, just a single device can help you do this.

Benefits Of Lighting Control

Putting in lighting control systems is also energy efficient and eco-friendly because it cuts down on emission carbon footprints and automatic dimming of lights can translate into a longer bulb life. Lighting control systems can be programmed to switch on at your convenience—at sunset, a specific time each day, or depending upon the amount of daylight left. There is a wide range of products to choose from and you can decide based upon your need and budget. It doesn’t matter whether you have a large home or a smaller one. There is a lighting control system within your reach. Discussing your requirements with a qualified home automation expert can help you make the appropriate choices.

Lighting Installation Options

Lighting control systems can be wired or wireless. One of their biggest benefits is that they can be used to tighten up the security at your home or even office. By installing motion sensors which when tripped switch on lights, you can thwart the aspirations of any burglars who may decide to target your space in your presence or absence. They can also be synced with the alarm system at your place. When making your purchase, look at the warranty terms and the installation charges. It is crucial that the system be installed in the right manner. Hence, it becomes essential that you get it done by a professional no matter how savvy or handy you are. Improper installation of lighting control systems may lead to the equipment getting damaged or worn out very quickly. It may also have an impact on performance and you will be deprived of all the benefits that made you buy the system in the first place.

Audio Concepts (now Oasis) installed a new smart home automation system at our home in Newport Coast. The technicians answered all our questions and were super helpful. I recommend them to everyone.

- Sallie-Anne Swift

One of Orange County’s few Audio Visual stores that actually know their stuff. Highly knowledgeable staff with a great selection of high end equipment for home theater systems.

- Ron Mason

By far the best high-end home theater company in Newport Beach. It’s amazing to see how they can transform your audio/video experience and give you the right product for what you need.

- William Cain

Audio Concepts is the best! I tried several digital vendors in the past and now I have my “go to” guys. They were knowledgeable, on time, professional, and reasonably priced. Strongly recommend you give them a call for your smart home, theater, security or other technology needs.

- Rachel Svoboda

It makes me sad that there are so few of these shops left. Scott & Steve are both terrific guys that patiently answered all my questions. While they both know much much more than I do on the topic of home audio, not once did I feel like that. It was like 3 old friends discussing their hobby. I ended up getting a fantastic deal on a current Mcintosh piece.

- Mike Lafirst

Technicians are super friendly and thorough. Really enjoy the follow up that I receive since installing my Control4 system in 2016.

- James H

Thanks to Desert Valley for always being there if ever an issue comes up with our AV System. We always get prompt service and they are always determined to get the issue solved to our satisfaction. Can’t say enough good things about Justin and his employees. Thanks to Jen for going above and beyond for getting us scheduled with Thomas ASAP just recently to have a battery fixed with our alarm system.

- James Staffa

I hired Desert Valley Audio to set up surround sound and multiple rooms of TV & Audio. Seth was the superintendent on the job, unfortunately I did not get the other gentleman’s name. They did an outstanding job! Seth is super knowledgeable, a hard worker and a pleasure to be around. Thank you for having such great employees!

- Baron Adelmann

Thank you DVAV for making our home perfect for entertaining! Adam and Jacob who completed the initial installation treated our needs and home with TLC, as if our home were their own. Jeff and Alan completed upgrade to a larger screen TV and update installations quickly and professionally.

- Bob Abbott

Our experience from beginning to end was first rate, made even more special by the fact that substantially all the work was done without us being on hand. We have always been big fans on doing business locally with independent owned businesses and our trust was amply rewarded with Desert Audio.

- Wayne Townsend

I had this place install cameras at my two offices and home. They did great work and the price was reasonable. Their technician, Jonathan, was professional and easy to work with. I highly recommend this place and Jonathan.

- Steve Vogt

Desert Valley came in really quickly to help fix our system and did a great job diagnosing the situation. We have come to the conclusion that our ISP needs to do some repairs on the system. Thank you Desert Valley! This is my correction to an incorrect review I have previously made.

- Tyler Bugeaud

Justin has done it all for me. My office, my homes and has even helped out our other business. I found him in Stone Creek Furniture doing a Media Wall and the relationship has blossomed into a great friend who knows AV! Great guy and his wife and staff are amazing. Definitely could rate them more than 5 stars if it were allowed.

- Ryan Jones

Dennis & Justin just installed a new TV for us. Another excellent job. Always helpful and efficient. Can’t say enough about how good these guys are! Justin and Jon make a great team. They were very efficient, didn’t oversell, delivered on everything they proposed and have the nicest group of folks working for them.

- Martin Simonetti

I hired Desert Valley Audio Video to upgrade my home entertainment system here in Scottsdale. The reviews are 100% correct. The sales, knowledge, installation, and price we’re excellent. The follow up phone call to see if everything was alright, or if I had any questions was a nice touch!

- J. Busch

I work for a Advertising Agency called Colling Media and we had them do some commercial AV work. These guys were fantastic and did a spectacular job. Dennis and Justin were the guys that did our install work and we couldn’t be happier with it. Highly recommended.

- Jayson Shreve

Very professional and knowledgeable staff. Will definitely use again for all my audio needs!

- Doreen Bennett

Joe and Ben and all the techs are the greatest…They make the Contolr 4 experience super me and Sue…I recommend to anyone who has or is thinking of going to control 4……..

- Mike Hall

Scott was quick and efficient in resolving my audio issues. Job well done.

- Gerry Sewell

Jeff and Manuel were pleasant, patient and very competant. They made my knowledge of the Control 4 System more comfortable

- Dr. Joseph Palermo

We took a long time to decide which A/V company to hire. We talked to three different companies and rated them good, better, best. Desert Valley A/V came out as the best, so we decided to pull the trigger. From the beginning, Justin and team were very professional and answered my multitude of questions. I would highly recommend Desert Valley to any of my friends and family.

- Zack Romero

These guys are great. Super friendly and super efficient. Have used them more than once and will use them again for future needs. Highly recommended!

- Jared Kavlie

I had to get the COX minibox installed to my bedroom TV. Jeff from Desert Valley AV came out yesterday and performed all the work and did an excellent job. The new box required a software update and some trouble shooting that he did a superb job with getting everything to work. In addition he helped with some questions on Control 4.
