Hands Free Home

This amazing system doesn’t even require pressing a button to operate. Start with the hands-free lighting. Door contacts and motion sensors used by the security system identify when a room or hallway is occupied and turn on the appropriate lights to preset levels. After someone leaves the space, the lights switch off.

Even the stairway lighting is automated, only this time the sensors are in the form of pressure pads placed underneath the flooring at the top and bottom of the staircase. The lights go off when no one is detected there after 20 seconds. In addition, the lighting levels change depending on the time of day, via preset modes for morning, daytime, evening and late night, so lights come on only to dim levels in the middle of the night, for example.See More Here.
