How Do You Set The Scene?

Home automation now allows you to "set scenes" in your home with just the press of a button!

Home automation is all the rave right now, as everyone seems to be merging their homes into smart homes. Technology is allowing us to control all the electronics in our home with just a few presses of a button. The new trend in home automation is setting the scene for your home. You can create anything from a morning routine scene to a “I’m not home” scene. Here are some ideas on how you can set the scene in your smart home.

“Rise And Shine”

You can set the desired time that you would like to wake up and then follow that with what you would like to happen at that time. Automated shades can be set to rise and light your room up while your favorite morning playlist begins to play through the speakers. If you aren’t big on music, you can have your TV turn on to the news or your favorite talk show to begin your day. Take it a step further and even turn your shower on at this time to encourage you to get out of bed a little faster.

“Good Night”

One of the worst feelings is when you get into bed for the night and remember that you haven’t turned all the lights off around the house. Now, you don’t have to worry about that because your home automation system can set a night time scene as well. The automatic shades will lower, and all electronics will shut off. You can set your lights to either shut off completely or you might want to leave some dim ones to illuminate walkways. You don’t even have to be concerned with checking if your door is locked because that can be automated now as well. One click of a button and your home is secure!


If you are going away for a while, the safety of your home is always in the back of your mind. This home automation scene can make it appear that you are still home to help relieve some of that concern. You can set your shades to still open in the morning and close at night. You can also set your interior and exterior lights to shut on and off at certain times to give people the thought that you are still home. You can let your security system know that you’ll be away, and it will notify you of any odd behavior in and around your home.

“Movie Night”

Whether you have a full-blown home theater or just a living room with a TV, this home automation scene can set the mood for movie night. When you are ready to start your movie, activate this scene and your lights can automatically be dimmed. Your shades can be set to go down to eliminate any natural light. You can even set your TV to turn on and give you a selection of movies to choose from. Even better, when you need to pause the movie for any reason, you can set it so that the lights will automatically come back on.
