Lighting is the second largest section of your energy bill (after your HVAC system) at 11%.

With home automation, you can program the lights to turn off when you leave a room or when you leave the house. You can also make it so the lights turn off at a certain time during the day, so your lights can’t be left on by accident.

Devices like your computer or television can sometimes steal power from an outlet in order to stay in this standby mode. With home automation, you can turn off appliances from anywhere you want.
