For a long time, professional church lighting has been a luxury reserved for churches with big budgets and experienced personnel.
A recent Proclaim update lets churches with limited budgets and volunteers enjoy tasteful, professional lighting. Here’s how.
You can use low-cost equipment
If your church doesn’t already have a lighting system, and you’re leery of dropping money on one, no worries. Proclaim works with the relatively inexpensive off-the-shelf Philips Hue bulbs and LED light strips. These are great options for churches with smaller budgets, and they support sophisticated capabilities that make it easy to create a professional look and feel. Learn more here.
You can use pre-made lighting scenes
It’s one thing to plug lights in, it’s another to know how to create a lighting scene. With Proclaim, you don’t have to know. Our developers worked with designers and stage technicians to create a guided process for you. You can even set your lighting to match or complement the main color of whatever slide is currently displaying.
You can set lights to run automatically
Set it and forget it. Using Proclaim’s Signals feature, you can cue lights to change with any slide, through the entire presentation. That way no one has to sit at the lighting booth and be ready for each and every change.

The Proclaim developers love creating new possibilities for users. This update is the result of one of their recent “hack weeks,” which is when they dream up something outside the box and work overtime to make it happen. Your suggestion could be the next hack week project, so comment below with new features you’d like to see.
