How can a home automation system help me save money?
Saving energy with your lighting saves you money and prolongs the life of your light bulbs. Enhance audio visual can help you reduce your energy costs by using low voltage lighting, and automatic lighting controls.

Low voltage halogen bulbs, which require a small amount of energy to power but produce a very bright light means the brightness of these bulbs can be reduced, by running them at a less than maximum brightness, with no loss of light to the naked eye whilst achieving considerable energy savings.

Timers can be set to turn off lights at particular times or after a certain period of time. Light sensors for daylight harvesting can turn lights on or off to pre-set levels depending on the amount of natural light in the room. Motion sensors can be deployed to turn lights off when no movement has been detected in a room for a set period of time. Many other electrical devices can also be programmed to turn off after a certain period of inactivity.
